Give me the grace to accept what I can’t change. Give me the courage to keep trying, even when I can’t see any reason to continue. Help me be at peace where I am, in this place. Let my eyes look ahead. Grant me faith to continue this journey. Give me rays of hope. God, I need a miracle.
If you are struggling with infertility, feel free to take this prayer, adapt it to your own.
The Two Week Wait
I am right smack in the middle of the dreaded two week wait. This morning I woke up with a song in my head, not unusual for me. I know a lot of songs, mostly love songs. Lol What was out of the ordinary was the particular song I was singing.
My 96 1/2 grandmother died in January. She was a bird, and my hero. Often she would break out singing old hymns. This particular song was one of her favorites.
“It’s me, it’s me oh Lord. Standing in the need of prayer. It’s me, it’s me oh Lord, standing in the need of prayer.
Not my mother, not my sister, it’s me oh Lord, standing in the need of prayer. It’s me, it’s me oh Lord, standing in the need of prayer.”
If that doesn’t represent what I’m feeling in the two week wait, I don’t know what does. Trying to conceive can be difficult. And I often wonder, “Where are you God.” This song just sums it up. It’s me, God. Just waiting to get pregnant.
What is your infertility prayer during the two week wait?
