Prayer for the month of July: Fruit of the womb

Isaiah 54:1 “Sing, O barren one, who did not bear;
break forth into singing and cry aloud,
you who have not been in labor!
For the children of the desolate one will be more
than the children of her who is married,” says the Lord.
“Enlarge the place of your tent,
and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out;
do not hold back; lengthen your cords
and strengthen your stakes.
For you will spread abroad to the right and to the left,
and your offspring will possess the nations
and will people the desolate cities.
“Fear not, for you will not be ashamed;
be not confounded, for you will not be disgraced;
for you will forget the shame of your youth,
and the reproach of your widowhood you will remember no more.
For your Maker is your husband,
the Lord of hosts is his name;
and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer,
the God of the whole earth he is called.
For the Lord has called you
like a wife deserted and grieved in spirit,
like a wife of youth when she is cast off,
says your God.
For a brief moment I deserted you,
but with great compassion I will gather you.
In overflowing anger for a moment
I hid my face from you,
but with everlasting love I will have compassion on you,”
says the Lord, your Redeemer.

Prayer: This is a prayer I pray for 2 people close to my family waiting on God for children. God is the same today, yesterday and forever. The God of Sarah and Hannah and Elizabeth will answer your prayer for children in Jesus name. 


  1. awwwwwwwwww, this is so very touching!!!
    I join my faith with yours and I also pray same for all the people I know also waiting on God, I pray that on this same forum we would share mind blowing testimonies of how GOD did what he alone can do....


  2. "For your Maker is your husband, the Lord of hosts is his name; and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer, the God of the whole earth he is called."

    I like that verse. May the Almighty meet everyone at their various points of need in Jesus name. Amen.

  3. I'm sorry and I really don't mean to sound insensitive because I have an aunt who didn't have children until she was well into her forties but I really must ask this question and I'm really sorry if it comes across as being insensitive. I don't mean to be.

    Have the family members you are praying for considered adopting children? Considering the fact that the world is already over populated and there are already many children who don't have parents and desperately need parents and Nigeria's population already has an average age of around 19/20 (meaning that most Nigerians are children or were children until relatively recently) don't you think it might be a good idea for them to just adopt children instead of insisting on having their own biological children since they seem unable to due to whatever existing reasons that have prevented them so far?

    I mean, are they considering it at all as an option? Or is adoption out of the question for them? And why?

    *kai, na wa o, this comment even seems to me like an interview/essay question. Sorry if it came across that way. It's just that I ALWAYS hear about Nigerians who have difficulties having children praying for children and they almost always NEVER even think about or want to adopt. I know that not being able to procreate must be painful and shocking but then again, I don't understand why more Nigerians don't adopt in light of it especially as there are lots of children that need homes in our country.*

  4. @sugabelly, lol no need to apologise. i appreciate the sincerity of ur comment and it is more than welcome and I do get ur point. I am personally of the opinion, that whether or not i have kids (by birth or surrogacy or adoption) is my business alone but the reality of the situation is that these women live in the reality of the Nigerian culture where lack of kids or male kids is the womens fault. I have never been in a situation to desperately want a kid of my own so I cant say i even know what they feel but i do know that putting up with the pressures they face daily must not be easy. I have friends whose parents always wanted males kids........2 went as far as having 6 girls each and they could have adopted a boy at some point in the 6 but they just kept on tryin till they had twin boys and their struggles with inlaws was dere too. anoda took over 10 yrs to make the adoption decision and I can imagine the strength she used to deal with the whole stigma but she has a very supportive husband while a lot of women in this case may not be able to boast of that. no kid isnt important but i think we place a higher value on biological children in Nigeria and for whatever reason, adoption still has a bit of a stigma which is only lessened when it seems like ur not using adoption to "cover ur inability to have kids or a male child"......but i do many children need parents but they may never get that chance because of the way we still view adoption. For some of these women, its not so much i need someone to care has degenerated to "God why me and where did I go wrong". Anyway to answer your question, I don't believe adoption is completely off the table for these women, if not now, in the may have already gone that route as I speak.

  5. Very uplifting!! Thanks for sharing. I think this is a prayer for any moment
