Please pray for me.

some far-off day, we will be reunited.
Prayer for the Loss of a Pregnancy
I ask the Creator of Life
to hear my cries.
Soothe my soul, my aching arms
that long for a baby to hold.
In time of loss
In this moment of loss, let me draw into myself, O God,
the light of your radiant love.
May it be a fire of renewed energy within me.
that I may rise from the pain and sadness
that now weigh upon my heart.
Are you in need of prayer?
You're not alone.
We'd like to pray for you.
