The period a couple is trying to conceive can be very challenging; but then again, waiting for anything is never easy, especially when it is beyond one’s control.
The physical and emotional stress of failed treatments, or the agony of failed pregnancies can make one grow hopeless, weary and discouraged.
It’s OK to breakdown from time to time and let the emotions flow, we are only human; but please don’t lose hope. In this life we will constantly face challenges; but we must never be defeated.
As long as there is life, we have to keep pushing. We have to stay strong and keep being positive, it will all be worth it in the end.
Our God is the way, the truth, and the life, and his word cannot return to him unfulfilled. He has promised us that children are his heritage, and none shall be barren in the land.
We stand firmly on his promises and decree that as many as are believing him for the fruit of the womb, their mouths shall soon be filled with testimonies, Amen. He did it for Rachel, Sarah, Hannah, and Elizabeth of old, and is still doing it for many women of our time.

Do you know any other bible verses or prayers for conception? We will be glad if you share with us!
Lately, I’ve been reading these Bible verses while we’re trying to conceive. Getting pregnant has been a long struggle for us and I’ve been relying heavily on scripture to get me through my toughest days. Some days it feels like we’re in this alone but we’ve been trying to train ourselves to turn to God during those times. No matter what you’re struggling with, there’s always an answer in the Bible (even if you’re just looking for a few Bible verses about getting pregnant to help give you hope).
I’ve been studying the Bible stories of Sarah, Hannah, and Rebekah. It’s been comforting to be reminded of their trials to motherhood and how they overcame through their faith in God. There is a kindred spirit in the layers of emotion these women felt as they prayed for their children. The story of Hannah as she prayed for Samuel reminds me to seek God in prayer. Rebekah and her twins is a comfort that God has a plan. I keep praying that God bless us with our own child in His right time.
I also picked up this book, Waiting for God to Fill the Cradle: One Month Devotional for Couples and it was a tremendous comfort to my husband and I. If you need to fill your heart with God’s love as you struggle and wait for your own child, I can’t recommend this book highly enough. It walks you through a lot of Bible verses about getting pregnant and prayers to pray over them.
As I mentioned last month, we’ve started using Astroglide TTC Trying To Conceive to help us on our road to parenthood. Its formula supports fertility with adjusted pH levels and unlike other lubricants, it doesn’t hinder the mobility of sperm. Since I was in my mid-20’s people have been asking me when I was going to have a baby. I always put them off with a “Oh, eventually…”. Thinking of it now breaks my heart. I had no idea how right they were. It’s so hard to wait!

Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.
He gives the childless woman a family, making her a happy mother. Praise the LORD!
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
