Fertility Fact Friday
Contrary to much belief, the inability to produce not only affects females but males as well. The term for males is sterility. Below is a resource for you or your partner who may have related issues. Written from a man’s perspective, most find this book extremely helpful.
- Overcoming Male Infertility, Leslie R. Schover & Anthony J. Thomas Jr., John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2000. A complete guide to male infertility from a psychologist and a male infertility specialist.
No matter what reproductive deficiency one might face, God hears, heals and answers prayer. A scripture supported prayer below is for yourself or your husband who is dealing with sterility issues. I encourage you to be a supporting spouse to your husband. He needs to know you need him, not only what he can produce for you.
Prayer for Male Sterility
“Heavenly Father, your Word says, ‘You formed my inward parts, I am fearfully and wonderfully made in Your image’. You made me male and you gave us the command to ‘be fruitful, to multiply and to fill the earth.’ I ask you to complete in me what is lacking. I ask for the health of my reproductive system to prosper. I thank you for the desire you put in my heart to be a father. By faith I believe that nothing is impossible with You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
Genesis 1:28, Psalm 139:13, Luke 1:37, III John 2:2
