The purpose of this Prayer Wall is to be an encouragement and support to those
who feel alone in their infertility struggles.
I am 37yrs old and have been married almost 3 yrs and have been trying for our first child for about two yrs. we have been for fertility testing and it's likely that the issue lies within my husband. I've spent countless nights praying about the situation and it's not the sort of thing I wish to discuss with many people. Yet it is hard when we are constantly asked when we will bring a baby into the world. I refuse to give up. I hope that by sharing my experience and by praying for others in my situation, that the Lord will hear our prayers and grant us our hearts desires. Please pray for healing in my husband, as well as myself, and for me to have patience, peace and sensitivity regarding our issues. I also pray that the lord speaks to ea of us and let's us know what he wants us to do. We often ask for so much yet do nothing in return, so maybe when we ask for our desires we also need to listen and see if he is speaking to us and just pay attention to what he says. Thank you so much.

Hi ladies.... I just read each of your prayer requests and my heart joins with yours in praying. I can SO empathize with the various feelings that you speak of . It is a hard and sometimes lonely road. I know none, of you but I walk with you and got tears in my eyes as I read your posts. God has me in a place where the pain isn't quite as searing as it has been. Maybe He has given me a little numbing agent around my heart,,,, who knows? But God placed you all on my heart.
I pray for each of you That God would meet you in the most intimate of places. May You seek Him and and He bring you joy and rest as you wait.May He remind each of you of your wonderful strengths and blessings. May He remind you of all the good you do for Him and his world. May he bless you with the desires of your hearts, and His. One gift I have received from Him is the ability to enjoy again, what infertility had stolen. May each of you receive that gift. You are all SO special and and wonderfully made. One thing that He is teaching me (and so often I forget) is that He has given me Life to Enjoy. I had gotten to a place of desperately wanting to create life , that I had forgotten to LIVE.
This journey is SO Hard. And I am so sorry for each of your hurts.... I stand with you and pray for you that God would bless each of us with His favor and joy of motherhood. But I also pray for a Him to whisper to us daily that we are chosen and loved by him. Recently, I asked a group of friends to pray for me as I would be surrounded by nieces and nephews, (as you know, those family get togethers can cause angst and longing, and for me, even low confidence). My friend reminded me that "I am enough, baby or no baby, because Jesus loves me". Let me remind you all that you are enough!!!!! I sincerely pray that each of you be blessed with a peace that surpasses our understanding. And may the Power of Jesus thwart every attempt of the enemy to derail our walks and our confidence.
God be with each of you....!!! I will be praying for each of you.

My husband and I have a 5 year-old who we prayed for for 2 years and the Lord heard our cry and I concieved for the past 5 years we have been trying to conceive. Everyone around me has gotten pregnant year after year and I'm waiting patiently for the lord to bless us but at times I feel hopeless I start to have doubt and times I feel angry with the lord. I don't want to be angry with God cause I don't want him to be angry with me. Please pray that the Lord blesses us with another child and give me the strength to wait on gods timing.

I am 45 and my husband is 47. We married late in life and neither of us have any children. We just finished our IVF cycle; had one perfect embryo (chromosomes tested and perfect) had the frozen embryo transfer and just learned that it didn't attach. This was our only chance and we are heartbroken. I had so many prayers being sent to The Lord and trulu believed my hearts desire would be answered. The thought of not having a child with my husband breaks me. Please pray for a miracle baby....somehow, someway.

Today I found out for the SIXTH time a women at my work is pregnant. I work in an office of 14... Each of the women have gotten pregnant during the 19 months we\'ve been trying. I\'m happy for them. But having to with walk that journey with multiple women when all I want is to start a family is crushing. I feel so so alone. Defeated. Broken. Numb. I have PCOS and don\'t get regular cycles. Over 20+ pregnancy tests. Every time so hopeful. Six Other couples we are close with have additionally gotten pregnant in the time we\'ve been trying and BOTH of our bible study leaders. Why?? Every time I blink someone in our inner circle finds out they\'re pregnant. I suffer silently and try to be excited for them. Pregnancy, babies, and kids is the talk 24/7 everywhere I am. I just want to hide away. No one understands. I want to be a mother so bad.

Hello, my name is Jane. My husband and I have been trying to conceive for almost seven years now. It has been a very rough roads for both of us. We sought infertility specialists and done so many IUIs and even an IVF. They couldn't find any specific issues except the fact that we're getting old. We're now in our early 40's. . It is during those vulnerable times that I know the devil tends to do his work. So, please help me to pay no mind of what the world thinks especially negative thoughts and even a friend who same age as mine is pregnant without even planning. So, these things truly make me want to doubt. Please help me to be strong in my prayers and to be closer to the Lord during this challenging times. To trust Him more than ever even when I don't understand why things happen as it is. To comfort my heart and remind me of His goodness and love. I love you Jesus so very much!
