Trying to Conceive

ttcGod 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.

Amen.

And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three;
and the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:13

  1. hello there,

    It’s me, Laia. I would like to bear a child with my partner Tony. I know that mothering is a serious and difficult task and I am responsible and feel committed to our Lord. I am undergoing through a process of healing now before I get pregnant.
    Please say a prayer for us that things will turn out fine and that we may be able to achieve our goals.
    Thank you so very much for your web and advice.
    Much Love from Catalonia, Spain.
