Prayer For Miscarriage, Comforting Scriptures And Finding Hope

Prayer For Miscarriage

There are few things more challenging in a person’s life than having a miscarriage or losing a child. Many people don’t understand the hardship and anguish experienced by the affected ones. The questions, doubts, and sadness parents have to go through after such a traumatic experience.

And one of the most common reactions is asking God why that’s happening to them. All of that is a normal part of the process. Every person is different, and the healing journey is very personal.

For those who seek solace through prayer and their belief in a higher power, prayer is a powerful tool to get through the painful time of grief and honor that beautiful angel in heaven.

If you or a loved one is going through the grieving process after a miscarriage, relying on prayer for miscarriage or scripture to get comfort and acceptance can be a helpful way of finding peace.

Miscarriage prayer

My Lord, the baby is dead!

Why, my Lord— dare I ask why? It will not hear the whisper of the wind or see the beauty of its parents’ face— it will not see the beauty of Your creation or the flame of a sunrise. Why, my Lord?

“Why, My child— do you ask ‘why’? Well, I will tell you why.

You see, the child lives. Instead of the wind, he hears the sound of angels singing before My throne. Instead of the beauty that passes, he sees everlasting beauty— he sees My face. He was created and lived a short time, so the image of his parents imprinted on his face may stand before Me as their personal intercessor.

He knows secrets of heaven unknown to men on earth. He laughs with a special joy that only the innocent possess. My ways are not the ways of man. I create for My Kingdom, and each creature fills a place in that Kingdom that another could not fill. He was created for My joy and his parents’ merits. He has never seen pain or sin. He has never felt hunger or pain. I breathed a soul into a seed, made it grow, and called it forth.”

I am humbled before you, my Lord, for questioning Your wisdom, goodness, and love. I speak as a fool— forgive me. I acknowledge Your sovereign rights over life and death. I thank You for the life that began for so short a time to enjoy so long an Eternity.

Comforting scriptures

There are some Bible verses that may give some comfort to grieving mothers in their time of need.

  • God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. Psalm 46 1:3
  • Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these” Matthew 19:14
  • “He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.”- Revelation 21:4
  • “Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.”- 1 Peter 5:7
  • “You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book.”- Psalm 56:8
  • “You light a lamp for me. The Lord, my God, lights up my darkness. With your help, I can advance against a troop; with my God, I can scale a wall. As for God, his way is perfect: The Lord’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him.”- Psalm 18:28-30

Compassion Prayer

Dear Lord, I may not know the pain of losing a child through a miscarriage, but I know God that it is difficult for those going through that right now.

Father God, I’m worn out from crying and asking you to bring back my miscarried baby. My eyes fail to look for you, my Father.

In your great mercy, show me how to deal with this pain that I carry in my heart. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.

Light up My Darkness Prayer

Valley of Tears Prayer

Steadfast Lord, we are in a dark place, where none of our friends can understand our pain. Thank you for walking with us through this valley of tears. As we mourn our child who was miscarried, we are growing to know your love, your heart. Thank you for understanding our sorrow and carrying it for us. Even when our world has come crashing in on us, the wind and waves still know your name. We know you are still on the throne. And we know you love us and weep with us. Amen.

Final thoughts

Losing a precious child is a tough time for everyone. Confide in the Lord to regain the peace and hope lost in those dark times.

Use the power of prayer to lift you back up into new life but don’t be ashamed to seek additional resources if needed.

Therapy is not shameful and doesn’t mean you don’t have faith because you need more or external help. Grief and pain should not be taken lightly, especially after a miscarriage.
