Many women struggle with fertility issues. In fact, fertility has declined by half over the past ten years, and one in every four women struggles to conceive.
While such statistics can be saddening, as a Christian, you should refuse to be among those in the infertile group.
If you’re having difficulties conceiving, you should cry to the Lord for help because He is the giver of children. Furthermore, positive affirmations can help increase your faith. Remember that when you confess positive things, they will follow you.
Several women have told stories of how they became pregnant despite being told they couldn’t conceive, simply because they refused the negative report and declared positive news, having unshaken faith that they’ll conceive.
2) Prayer for Infertility
“Giver of Life,
I ask that You look upon me with mercy and deal with my infertility. I am scared and overburdened by the news that I may not be able to have children. Infertility is not my portion in Jesus’ name.
Please breathe life into my womb. Touch me with Your healing hand and bless me with a healthy womb and prepare it for raising a miracle.
I trust and believe that at the right time, I will become pregnant, and I will have a wonderful testimony for others struggling with infertility too.
The Lord passes us through different tests and difficulties for a reason. Perhaps to help us learn a lesson, to give us a testimony or increase our faith. While struggling with infertility isn’t easy, pray that God reveals to you the lesson you need to learn.
You might be tempted to complain or frown at your friends and family getting pregnant but remember that the Word of God orders us to rejoice in the Lord ALWAYS and again rejoice (Philippians 4:4).
Even in infertility, try to be happy. God hears your cry to Him and will be merciful to you.
3) Miracle Prayer for Getting Pregnant
Just as You performed a miracle for Sarah and enabled her to get pregnant at an old age, I trust You will do the same for me. You opened Sarah’s womb, and in doing so, fulfilled Your promise to make her the mother of many nations.
I believe any difficult situation, no matter how impossible it seems, is nothing for You. I trust You will perform the same miracle and enable me to get pregnant in Jesus’ mighty name,
Amen.”Original StAgnes.net prayer. Copying prohibited, except with source.
When you’ve been trying to get pregnant for so long, it can feel overwhelming. You might feel like you will never get pregnant.
At that point, what you need is a miracle, and gladly, the Bible is full of stories about women who had almost given up hope of getting pregnant, but God worked a miracle for them.
It’s even better when you have your partner or spouse pray with you to solidify your faith. In such low moments, it can be challenging to pray for yourself, but with your partner standing with you in prayer, God can hear and answer your prayers.
In Genesis 25:21, Isaac prayed to the Lord on behalf of his wife, Rebekah, because she was barren. And the Lord answered his prayer, and Rebekah became pregnant with twin boys.

Amen.”Original StAgnes.net prayer. Copying prohibited, except with source.
When trying to conceive, there is always that excitement and presumption that you will get pregnant quickly. While some lucky ones conceive immediately, others take a while, which can be worrisome.
Waiting every month to see whether you conceived is already anxiety-inducing. Imagine having waited several months with no success.
I feel your pain, and so does the Almighty. Commit your anxieties to Him through this prayer, and let Him melt away your fears.

It might happen this month or not, but I know that Your timing is the best. I trust in your mighty power to send good news to my family that I am pregnant.

When we pray, we align ourselves to God’s will, not ask Him to grant our requests in our timing.
That means when you ask the Lord to become pregnant, as much as you might want it to happen immediately, don’t be discouraged when He chooses to keep you waiting. In such waiting, it helps to cultivate your patience and learn to seek the Lord more.
Remember when God promised Abraham and Sarah to give them countless descendants (Genesis 15:1-6), you might think that Sarah became pregnant immediately.
However, it took a long time before Sarah conceived. Though in the long wait, Sarah doubted God and offered Abraham her maid Haggai to bear a child on her behalf, He had not forgotten His promise. His timing was not prime yet.

The emotional and physical stress of failed pregnancies can make one grow hopeless and weary. It is okay to let out your frustration through crying from time to time — we are only human after all, but please don’t lose faith.
Many women have had challenges with fertility and gone on to have successful pregnancies and healthy babies. There is still hope for you.
