Prayer For A Barren Womb
Precious Lord, my whole being longs to have a child. I know children are a natural outcome from a marriage between a man and a woman. However, children are ultimately are a gift from You. As the Psalmist so beautifully proclaimed in days past, my soul waits for You, Lord. I place my hope in You. I stand watch as a watchman who waits for the morning, waiting for the blessing of a child to come. Amen.
Heavenly Father, we come before You as a brokenhearted couple because of our barrenness. Our unified desire is to raise a child together. Help us not make an idol out of our desire to have a child. Please do not let this unmet request be a stumbling block to our faith. You open and close wombs according to Your will. All-Powerful God, help us to trust the goodness behind Your will and timing. Amen.
God of All Comfort, we need Your peace as we pass through this barren time in our lives. Our friends and family are having babies, and it is an expected occurrence. For us, it hurts, and we need Your comfort to get us through. We have surrendered our marriage to You, and are asking for You to lead us to Scriptures to pray together that will prevent this situation from tearing our marriage apart. Help us trust in You and Your will. Amen.
Jesus, my Savior, You are the One who knows me inside and out. I cry out to You because You are the giver of life. I read how Rachel cried out to You, and You remembered her. You opened her womb, and she was able to have children. Lord, I don't know why You have closed my womb, but I am asking that You remember me and bless me with a child. Amen.
Magnificent Lord, I know how small I am and how great You are. I praise You, Lord, because You knit me together in my mother's womb. You fearfully and wonderfully made me. My prayer is that You would create a marvelous work inside me. I pray that You would create a child in my womb that I can raise in a manner that brings You glory. Amen.
Sovereign Lord, my heart wants to surrender my barrenness to Your will, but it seems to overshadow my whole life. Having children is a natural desire, but if a child is not Your will for my life, I ask that You remove it. I need Your help to make it through this time in my life. Be it as a barren woman or as a mother, Your love and presence are all that I need. Amen.
Father of All Good Things, we come to You to bring our barrenness before You and seek Your blessing upon our lives. Your holy Scripture about children is like an arrow to our hearts. You talk of children being a heritage, a reward, and of happiness. We have yet to experience the blessing of children and are seeking it from Your hand. Lord, have mercy on us and extend Your grace to us. Amen.
Precious Lord, I desire to have a child, and this has not happened. I pray that You would bring showers of blessing down on this season of barrenness and create in me a fruitful womb. Deliver me from my childlessness, which has enslaved me up to this point. You are my Lord, and I await Your blessing. I have so much love to give a child, Precious Lord. From the bottom of my heart and the depths of my soul, I deeply want to raise a child to know and love You. My hope lies in You, my All-Powerful God. Amen.
