Oh Heavenly Father,
Today is an extremely hard day for the Mama’s in Waiting. We yearn to become a mama. We dream of having a house filled with children’s laughter. We long to have those little arms wrapped around our neck. We want to hear a child call us Mama. Yet today is not the day, so we ask that you will be with all of us who are not mothers. Remind us that we are loved beyond by measure by you. Help us to keep our eyes focused on you and not on our parental status.
We ask that you give strength to the woman who is trying to patiently wait on your timing to become a mama. Whether she is single like me, who is waiting for Mr. Wonderful to enter her world. Or if she is a woman who been battling infertility. Please send her a love letter today that reminds her how much you love her. Remind her of the stories of Hannah, Elizabeth and Sarah that you can change her barren womb to a fertile one. We are standing on the promise that you will draw closer to us like it says in Psalm 86:1 “Bend down and hear my prayer, O Lord, and answer me, for I am deep in trouble”. The waiting and yearning makes our heart break just a little more each day that passes by. We are starting to lose hope and wonder if you are hearing our prayers at all. Assure each woman that you have heard her cries and you are moving on her behalf.
We ask that you comfort the women who have had a miscarriage and who are still missing and desiring to know their heaven babies. God we ask that you wrap your loving arms around her and remind her that you bend down to hear her cries. Lord we ask that you be her comforter today. Holy Spirit we ask that you utter the words her heart can’t bear to say. We are claiming your promise in Romans 8:26 “Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.”
Lord we ask that you be with every woman who is a Mama in Waiting. We ask all of this in Jesus Name – AMEN.
