Whether you are trying to conceive for the first time, or have been struggling with infertility, there are wonderful and encouraging bible verses for infertility that can help you during this time.
When I was trying to get pregnant, I prayed and prayed and prayed. I looked for encouraging quotes during infertility. I started a gratitude practice. I journaled my dreams. I did 79 things! I also looked towards scripture for reassurance.
BUT, things really changed when I encountered the book Supernatural Childbirth by Jackie Mize, which has large sections about infertility and trying to conceive. As a Catholic, I was familiar with Catholic fertility prayers and the fertility saints, but I hadn’t familiar with the practice of “declaring” bible versus, or using bible verses as prayer. But the way Jackie explained reading Bible Verses as “setting yourself in agreement with the Bible,” really spoke to me.
I began to read bible versus for infertility out loud as a way of proclaiming what IS, and coming into “agreement with God.” This was very new for me and a bit uncomfortable, but I started to LOVE IT! Praying these verses over infertility truly resonated with me, and some of it was very similar to other practices I was familiar with- traditional praying, affirmations, hypnobirthing, meditation, and it just clicked. And, fundamentally, this is just another way to pray!
I especially prayed these verses over my body when I was trying to conceive my daughter and was afraid of a miscarriage. Read that amazing story of conceiving my second child here! (And if you have time read how I conceived my first miracle!)
I hope you enjoy these bible verses for infertility! I hope they bring you comfort, healing, and the baby you are longing for!
