Mother’s Prayer Following A Miscarriage/Stillbirth

Oh God, my Father, I am aching with grief as the little child that I was carrying in my womb is no more – Lord I don’t understand why this has happened and I feel numb with pain and sadness.

We prayed so long for a little baby and were so full or joy when I was pregnant – but to have this happen is the most devastating blow that could have happened and my heart is breaking.

I know that there is a purpose for everything that happens in our lives, but at the moment I cant see any purpose for this pain and grief that I am facing- help me Lord to keep trusting You knowing that out of all evil You have purposed good.

Hold me close Lord I pray and carry me in Your arms of grace. Help me to face the future with You Lord and trust You to bring good out of this pain…

Lord I am going to trust You in this even though I do not understand. I am going to trust and not be afraid. Thank You Lord that promised to wipe away every tear from our eyes - Into Your hands I commit my future.

Amen
