JEALOUSY | ENVY

I Corinthians 13:4-7, II Corinthians 10:5, 12

“Heavenly Father, your Word tells me how to love and being envious and jealous is not part of your divine love. Father, I am struggling with envy and jealousy as I see pregnant women and hear of a new baby in someone’s life. Help me not to deny Your goodness and Your perfect plan for another as you bless them with children. Teach me not to compare my life with others, to take every negative, envious and jealous thought captive to the obedience of Christ. I ask for Your help to rejoice in the truth with others as I hear of a pregnancy or birth. Thank you for teaching me Your way to love. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”


FORGOTTEN

I Samuel 12:22, Isaiah 49:15-16, Matthew 10:29-31, 28:20, John 14:18, Romans 8:35-39, Ephesians 1:6 KJV, Hebrews 4:13 NAS

“Heavenly Father, I praise You that you were pleased to make me Your own and have accepted me in the beloved family of God because of your dear Son, Jesus Christ. Father, these fertility challenges have made me feel forsaken and forgotten, I feel as if no one sees or cares about my desire for children. However, I will make the choice not to be led by my feelings but believe your Word. Your Word tells me that ‘I am not hidden from Your sight, that you won’t leave me as an orphan, that You know every detail of my life, even the very numbers of hair on my head and that I am worth more than any sparrow.’ Thank you! I praise you that nothing can separate me from Your love, not now or forever! In Jesus’ name, Amen.”


DISAPPOINTMENT

Romans 5:3-5, I Peter 2:6 NAS

“Heavenly Father, it seems as if every month brings about disappointment because I pray for a child and nothing happens! I don’t understand why I have to suffer like this! But in your Word You say that I am to rejoice in my sufferings, because it gives me perseverance for the journey ahead, and perseverance brings about better character in me, and character; hope. I praise you for your great love, which has been shed in my heart by your Holy Spirit, which gives me hope that does not disappoint, as I continue to believe in You. Thank you! In Jesus name, Amen.”


DIRECTION

Psalm 138:8, Proverbs 3:5-6

“Heavenly Father, I ask that You will fulfill Your purpose for my life, my desire for children. Help me not to lean upon my own understanding or to rationalize the thoughts in my head. When there is a fork in the road and I don’t know which path to take, I ask You will direct a straight path on this fertility journey. Teach me to know when to move forward or to stop or rest along the way. As I put my trust in You, I thank and praise You that You are perfecting every little detail that concerns me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”


WAITING

Psalm 37:4, Psalm 38:15, Psalm 130:5, Isaiah 40:31

“Heavenly Father, waiting is extremely hard, especially when I see so many pregnant women and little children. As I wait on the desire of my heart, help me to delight myself in You, to be strong and of good courage, to not go ahead of your perfect plan. I praise and thank You, as I wait on You, that my strength is restored, so I can soar like an eagle. I choose to place my trust in You in waiting, believing You will answer me and refresh me along this fertility journey. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
