It is undeniably true that there’s absolutely nothing that prepares you for losing a baby.
Many of us spend so much time daydreaming of our baby’s tiny toes and tender moments. And never actually consider that pregnancy could end tragically. After all, pregnancy is such a natural process for any woman.
If you’ve suffered the unfathomable pain of miscarriage or someone you love. These powerful prayers will help you find peace, comfort; and encouragement in God’s love.
They will inspire you to turn to Him in prayer during this very painful period. I hope these prayers for miscarriage bring you through this terrible experience.

Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I’m supposed to be thankful to You despite what has happened to me, because your Word, the Bible says that we should give thanks to You in every situation.
However, my heart is very broken, to say that I am devastated by this loss will be an understatement. I lack words to express how sad and miserable I feel. Father, the pain is so real that I have no idea how to see beyond it.

Father, thank You because this is not the end. But only a waiting period until we both meet in Heaven, never to part again. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

Holy Spirit, I’m beyond terrified that I will lose another child and I simply can’t stand the thought. You know how broken I am currently, I’m so broken that I will clearly be unable to endure another loss.
Please, God, You are the only one that I can count on to help me. My God, I need You to lead me through all of these emotions and unexplainable pain that I feel. I am truly in dire need of Your healing touch, I need You to rekindle my hope that has been dashed to pieces.

Almighty God in Heaven, I am desperately in need of Your supernatural intervention. I don’t know how to move on from this current state of helplessness.
Father, the truth is that I don’t even want to move on, because I miss my sweet little child so much, far more than words can possibly express.
I feel very depressed when I stay indoors to mourn the loss of my precious gift from heaven. It gets even worse when I go out because I see pregnant women and babies in every direction I look.
My God, ever since I lost the precious baby You gave to me, all I see is people with the thing I desire the most. However, I don’t want to continue this way, hence I ask that You please give me the grace and strength to move on. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

Father Lord, I can’t even believe the amount of grief I feel for this baby that I never met. What I feel is so strange. God, I had no idea that to lose a child that hasn’t even been born can be this painful.
While the feeling remains strange, the pain is still no less. I guess it doesn’t matter whether I get it or not, I am the mother and it is my child until eternity. Lord Jesus, I ask that You please bring Your healing and goodness from all of these. Amen.
7. Prayer to Tell God About Your Loss.
Lamentations 3:31-33: For the Lord will not cast off forever, but, though he causes grief, he will have compassion according to the abundance of his steadfast love; for he does not willingly afflict or grieve the children of men.
Gracious God, I have come to share my grief with You because You are the only one who really understands what I’m going through. Father, there’s no single soul that seems to understand my pain from this irredeemable loss.
Many people have told me that I will see my baby again at the resurrection, but Father I don’t think I can bear the thought of waiting until then, because this is so difficult.
Hence, I ask that You give me just a glimpse to see what my child looked like. If I’m not asking for too much, Lord, I ask that You please give me an opportunity to see and hold my baby in a dream even if it’s for only a minute.
Precious Holy Spirit, please comfort my grieving heart and make me whole again. In the Name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.

Our Father in Heaven, I’m in dire need of Your encouragement as no encouragement that I have received from the people around me has been able to alleviate my pain.
Dear Holy Spirit, I ask that You please encourage and strengthen me Yourself on the journey of recovering from the pain of losing my baby.
Merciful God, help me through this darkness, I feel trapped in this pit of grief and despair. So I plead that You please usher my steps into Your divine light because You are the only one who can truly bring me out of the pit of depression that I have sank into.
In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

Father God, thank You because You are our most dependable helper. As such, I ask that You help me to look forward to a bright future from now on. Lord, not with fear but with you holding my hands and guiding me every step of the way.
God’s word tells me that with You, God all things are possible. Therefore I ask that You help me to understand the depths of who You really are and why You do the things You do or permit some of them.
Though I’m still in pain as a result of the pregnancy failure, I’m thankful because I have realized through this harrowing experience that my life is nothing without You in it.

So I ask that You help me. But most importantly, help me to stay grounded in You so that I will be able to understand a little of Your ways.
In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

Hence, I’m at a total loss. Holy Spirit, I need your guidance to be evident and powerful in our lives, especially at this time.
Lastly, my Father, I ask that You will help me to be a source of strength to my family at this trying time and not a burden to them. In the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!
