Infertility is a whole lot of nothing. An awful, painful nothing.
That it is nothing is not what makes it awful but that it exists in place of the most significant something we can ever hope for: a newborn child. Just when we are ready and inspired to begin, we face, almost immediately, the exact opposite of our hopes: nothing.
But as painful as this “nothing” is, it is still a beginning, for indeed God created everything out of nothing. It’s just not quite the beginning we had expected for ourselves. So, hope is not lost, because infertility precedes fertility.
While you wait, use the time wisely and in prayer. If you don’t know how to pray about this, don’t worry—there are plenty of prayers to get pregnant all over the internet.
So that you can begin praying to have a baby right now, we’ve written a few for you here. Use these prayers for pregnancy however you like. Recite them as they are or let the words inspire your own prayers for fertility. But whatever you do, make them your prayers, offering them up to God as a sweet aroma.
