If you are reading these prayers for miscarriage, it is probably because you or someone you love has suffered a miscarriage. I am so sorry for your loss and your immense pain. We’ve created these prayers for miscarriage to hopefully help you find some peace and recognition of God’s love, while inspiring you to turn to Him in prayer during this painful time.
On Christmas Day 2011, I endured my first pregnancy loss. Seven months later, I lost my second child due to a miscarriage. For several years afterwards, my husband and I closed the door of pregnancy and children in our lives.
The pain of miscarriage is unfathomable. It is a truly unique experience, because losing a child that you never get to meet brings with it a whole host of grief that many humans never experience or understand.
I wrote these prayers from the bottom of my heart, from a pain that surprisingly still exists to this day. In writing these prayers for miscarriage, I stepped back into those moments when I lost my two precious babies. The following prayers came from that place.
Death is hard and it was never part of God’s plan (Genesis 1-3). But death isn’t permanent for the followers of Jesus. Sometimes in grief, it can be really difficult to hold on to the reality of the future, but you and your baby will be united there in the perfection of heaven.
This is the light in darkness, and while it may be hard, even unbearable, this is not the end.
May you find God’s comfort, love, and grace in these prayers. From one momma’s heart to another’s, I truly hope these see you through this very difficult time.
And one final note, the last few prayers on this list were written by my husband. We usually write our prayer posts together and do not specifically distinguish which one of us wrote which prayer. However, this time, I really wanted his prayers to be noted. Being a father to a baby lost in a miscarriage is an unreal hardship. We women at least get to carry the baby and have a connection in that way. However, our partners have even less tangible connection to our baby.
It’s important to note a miscarriage is a difficult loss for everyone, including both parents, and each will grieve in different ways. I hope these prayers for a miscarriage bring you through this terrible hardship.
