Prayer For Stillbirth

Sending Thoughts Through Prayer to Stillbirth Families: A blog around sending prayers to families that have experienced stillbirth.

Dear God, I pray for all the parents who have lost their babies to stillbirth.

I pray for the strength and courage you are giving to those parents as they grieve, and for the healing of their hearts.

I pray that we will all come together in love, support and unity as a community of mourners, united in our grief and pain.

Let us find comfort in one another’s company; let us seek solace in each other’s arms; let us share our tears and our smiles and our memories.

Miscarriage Prayer For A Friend

We are here to help each other through this difficult time. We will be there when you need us most. We will celebrate with you when you feel ready to move on from your loss; we will be there for you always if you need us.

Many women suffer from the loss of a child due to miscarriage, stillborn, or even SIDS, and the grief that comes with this loss is unimaginable. Here are 10 good prayers for stillborn babies.

The Old Testament contains the vast majority of biblical dreams. God utilized dreams and visions to communicate with the people of the Old Testament when they only had limited access to His written word, or none at all in the case of those who lived before Moses.

Essentially, it’s releasing our wants, needs, suffering, and sadness to God while maintaining an attitude of gratitude. 

Giving thanks in all circumstances helps us see how much we rely on God’s guidance to thrive in this world. John 15:5 makes it clear that we are fully aware of our utter dependence on God.

As our relationship with God grows and we see His hand at work, we realize that His ways are superior and that His plan and purpose for our lives are truly magnificent.Praying regularly is essential for developing a stronger relationship with God. Similar to how you could confide in your best friend over lunch. Yet, in the first place, we can take our worries to God.

Paul reminds the church in Thessalonica that if we come to God in prayer with a ready heart, He will strengthen our bond with Him.

The first step in developing a closer relationship with God is realizing Who it is that we are praying to. Although we might have a deep personal relationship with God, and He knows us inside and out, we must never forget that He is worthy of the highest awe and regard.

To show our awe and reverence for God (Deuteronomy 13:4), we must celebrate God for who He is. We can do this with music or praise. To do this, we need just take delight in God’s manifold gifts to us or in the natural beauty that surrounds us.

An effective prayer life begins with praise to God. The next stunning sunset won’t last forever, so don’t miss it. Count your blessings that God has united you with a loved one.

Recognize God as the source of your success. Since the Lord has been there for you through the good times and the bad, you will eventually be able to find joy in Him despite your current circumstances.

When we encountered Jesus and learned about His life, His many acts of kindness, and His ultimate death on the cross, we saw God’s plan come to completion, as depicted in the gospels. That calls for a pause for thought and reflection, during which we might give God our deepest thanks and praise.
