Prayers to Conceive a Child
Starting a family is something most couples desperately want, but it is not always easy. Many complications can arise for those who are trying to conceive and sometimes it just doesn’t seem fair. However, one way to pursue having a child is to ask for God’s blessing and His support while trying to conceive.
By letting God know how much you want a baby God will be able to see how committed you are to loving and raising your child. Since having a child is one of the most rewarding parts of life, it is a choice that should never be taken lightly. Despite the obstacles you might face when trying to conceive, asking for God’s guidance and support is the best way to start your own family. Here are six prayers to help you understand the magnitude of having a child and ask for God’s blessing for you to take on this wonderful responsibility.
God of faith,
Hear the deepest prayer of our hearts,
for a child to be ours.
Help us to believe –
even when we wrestle with doubt,
even when months pass empty,
even when darkness threatens our joy –
that your promise of love for us
remains faithful, good, and true.
God of hope,
Hold our dreams for a child
within your loving hands.
Fill our hearts with hope,
and lift our eyes to look to you.
When worries creep into our thoughts,
let your light cast out every fear.
God of love,
Help us to trust when times get trying,
that this journey will bring us closer to you,
no matter where our road turns or ends.
Bless our dreams for a family,
and draw us deeper in love together
as we wait in joyful hope
for a child to welcome with love.
God of faith and hope and love,
let your will be done.
And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three;
and the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:13
