iPray: Day 22

A Prayer for those waiting on God for the fruit of the womb

Worship the Lord your God, and His blessing will be on your food and water. I will take away sickness from among you, and none will miscarry or be barren in your land. I will give you a full life span Exodus 23:25-26

Then the Lord said, "I will surely return to you about THIS TIME NEXT YEAR, and Sarah your wife will have a son...Is anything too hard for the Lord? I will return to you at the APPOINTED TIME next year and Sarah will have a son Genesis 18:10,16

Now the Lord was gracious to Sarah as he had said, AND THE LORD DID for Sarah what he had promised. Sarah became pregnant and bore a son to Abraham in his old age, at the VERY TIME God had promised him Genesis 21:1-2

Our God is an Awesome God who reigns from Heaven above with wisdom, power and love. Our God is an awesome God (Rich Mullins). Dear God, our Father who is our Friend, a Warrior who is a Lover, a Lion who is a Lamb, a King who is a Healer, a Rose who is mighty in Battle, you are Jehovah. Almighty, Elohim, Ancient of Days, Before the beginning and after the end, the Alpha and Omega. Daddy I give you the praise. You said if your people pray, you will answer them. That the prayer of the righteous man makes tremendous power available, I know I have the righteousness of Christ and my prayers rise and fall back on me as answers. Halleluyah! Thank you for this season of prayer, I'm so excited about the wonderful things you have done and are doing. Awaken the intercessors in each and everyone of us in Jesus name.

Is anything too hard for the Lord? Daddy, you asked this question. Is anything too hard for the Lord? Who can answer your questions? Can dry bones live again? Can you make a path in the sea? Can Goliath be killed without a sword? Can 5,000 be fed with 5 loaves and 2 fish? Can the dead be raised, blind eyes opened, the sick healed? Can a 90 year old woman give birth to a child for her 100 year old husband? Father, through your word we know the answer to these questions is a big resounding YES. Your word says that there is nothing impossible with you, you decree a thing and it must come to pass. You watch over your word to perform it.

Your word says that when we worship you, your blessing will be upon us and none shall be barren in the land. Your word also says that the fruit of the womb is a heritage from the Lord and blessed is the man whose quiver is full of children for they are like arrows in the hand of a warrior. You told Adam and Eve to be fruitful and multiply. Children are a fruit of marriage. Today Lord, I lift up couples who are trusting and believing in you for children, expectant parents as I call them for none shall be barren in the land. Father, only you knows the pain, the longing, the tears that are shed month after month as they realise that just not now, Father touch their hearts, give them the grace to trust you, give them the power to continue to believe, let their faith be in your word and not in the doctor's report and not in what their physical bodies say. Nothing is impossible with you.

Daddy you did it for Abraham and Sarah, Isaac and Rebekah, Zechariah and Elizabeth, Samson's parents, Elkanah and Hannah, you not only blessed them with the fruit of the womb, you blessed them with children of distinction, children of destiny with a unique purpose to fulfill. You are the unchanging changer, do what you alone can do, just as you have done before please do it again. You are a Sovereign God, only you knows why it takes some couples a longer time to conceive but in your infinite wisdom teach them how to wait on you. To wait until their change comes.

Father, the desire for children has caused a strain in some marriages and seeks to threaten the relationship, I ask that your love bind them together. Let a strong love that reminds of the vows they have taken to stick together through thick and thin. I know in the culture I am from, this period of waiting is associated with 'advice' from extended family members that cause hurt and pain. I ask that you garrison the hearts of your children, especially your daughters, that even though like Hannah they may cry, that their tears lead them to the temple and they cry unto you without ceasing. Lord I ask that they live, that they realise that although children are important, like any desire we have there is nothing we desire more than you. Awaken them to pursue their passion, purpose and calling in life for their children will meet them on the way. Just as the angel met Zechariah as he was serving in the temple, teach them to wait on you with the right attitude and spirit. Dear lord, I pray against the spirit of Ishmael, the spirit of compromise that makes us want to short circuit our blessings by making us think we know better than you how to get what we want.
I also pray that when the babies do come, you give the grace to realise that parents are stewards of your jewels that like Hannah presented Samuel back to you to serve in your house that they realise parenting is a responsibility to train a child in the way they should go.

I rebuke the spirit of barrenness, we were created to be fruitful. Physically and spiritually. Father, whatever the cause of infertility is, you are Elohim the God who creates. I remember the prophecy you gave your son, that whatever cannot be fixed, You will replace. You have done it before, there are so many testimonies of your goodness in this area. I pray for everyone who is reading this prayer today that faces this challenge, Lord I know at the appointed time, they shall hold their miracle babies in their hands in Jesus name. Lord, fill their hearts with a peace that passes understanding, a joy that knows no bounds. We rejoice not in circumstances but through them because we know that our God is working. We ask all these in the name that guarantees an answer. The precious, beautiful name of Jesus. Thank you Lord.

If you are in this situation, please don't give up. Keep confessing the word, keep getting yourself ready for your baby's arrival. The Bible says that Abraham's faith prevented him from giving up, from considering God's promise too late to come to pass, to hold out for the impossible. It is sometimes hard to rejoice with those who are rejoicing in this area but ask God to give you the grace and be parents to the children God brings your way for what you make happen in the lives of others, God will make happen for you. Your miracle baby is on the way in Jesus name. Have a physical checkup, go to the doctors, hear what they have to say, follow advice as required but go home and pray. Have a spiritual checkup, join and agree with others in your homechurch. There is power when we touch and agree concerning a matter. I believe you will testify in your appointed time.

WOW! Believer, thanks. A power pACKED PRAYER.

'There is power when we touch and agree concerning a matter.'

There most certainly is! Lord we stand in agreement with Believer on this matter of barreness. Open up those barren wombs! You are a God that can open doors that cannot be shut.... open these many doors for your many people who year after year have faced this bareness in the face. Quiet their weeping - change their weeping for JOY - an abundace of Joy with a 'bundle' of Joy from the Lord!

As always, we ask for your will in this matter. Only you, O Lord know the individual reasons for bareness. I'm with Believer, I rebuke it it in the name of Jesus. Replace the bareness with your fruitfullness - in the name of Jesus!! Hold these women in the palm of your hand and blow your sweet fragrance upon them that their wombs might hold the seed that flourishes to overcome the odds to be a witness to your loving touch. Touch them O Lord with your Might Heavenly touch and change their lives forever! May you receive the Glory with each resounding 'HEARTBEAT'.

O the greatness of your power astounds me! The magnitude of your love is overwhelming. My heart can barely stand it. Come, O Lord, with your LIGHT and dispel the darkness with your PRESENCE!!

We give you praise and adoration for all that you have done and promise to do and....for those 'suddenlys' ... that are sure to come.. in the name of Jesus..Amen!

Amen and Amen. Father we thank You for the coultless lives You are touching through this season of prayer, and we thank You Lord, for the lives of everyone waiting for the fruit of the womb. We thank You Lord, because it is an opportunity that You will use to glorify Your name. A period as they draw near to you they will realise that It was for Love and not hatred, and to distinguish them from every other that You have allowed them to go through this. We thank You Lord for the Children that You will give them, and most importantly we thank You Lord for the people that they will become, people who know their God.

Thank You Lord for answered prayers in Jesus Name. Amen.
