Mother’s Day is just four days away. For me, this day is a celebration of God’s great faithfulness in my life. However, there is a small part of me that still aches. Having been through five miscarriages and burying a stillborn daughter, I’ve often faced the day with red, puffy, eyes. Not only is this day bittersweet regarding my own circumstances, but I feel a burden for so many women who are still struggling. I’m praying for women everywhere waking up Sunday morning with pain from pregnancy loss and infertility. I’m praying for women who have lost children at any age, and for women and children alike who have lost their mothers too soon.

Women need to be praying for other women on Mother’s Day.

Wherever you are this Mother’s Day, look around you. Whether it is in church, a restaurant, the movies, or a park, I am sure you will see the face of a woman who has in some way been grieved by pregnancy loss. I’m certain that either you or someone you know well has faced the issue. According to the American Pregnancy Association, studies show that anywhere from 10-25% of recognized pregnancies will end in miscarriage. Chemical pregnancies may account for 50-75% of all miscarriages. Approximately 6.1 million in the United Sates have difficulty becoming pregnant or staying pregnant. (C.D.C.)

Please join me this Mother’s Day in praying for women who are suffering with hurting hearts over miscarriage, stillbirth, and infertility. Please pray for women who have lost children due to other causes. And please do not forget to pray for children and adults who mourn the loss of their own mothers.

Mother’s Day provides opportunity to pray and stand in the gap for so many who need peace and renewed joy from the only One Who can give it.

Dear Father,

We ask You to restore hope this Mother’s Day. Please heal what was broken and make it beautiful…  We ask for Your will and peace to fill lives. We will stand on Your promises…

In Jesus Name,


Psalm 147:3

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. (N.K.J.V.)
