PRAYER AFTER A MISCARRIAGE
Hear me, Father, please hear me! I feel so lonely, God. Yesterday I had a life moving and growing inside me. Today I am empty. I don't understand. Am I being punished? Would I not be such a good mother to this baby? Are you protecting me from great heartache with this child?
My friends assure me that you provide for these babies. I know in my heart that is true, LORD, but right now I ache. I miss that which I thought was to be. I don't understand any of this. The pain is so deep. The pillow is soggy with tears. How will I get through another day? Will I ever smile again, let alone laugh?
You alone are my solace. Where Do I run at times like this? I run to, LORD, for you collect my tears in a bottle. You hear my cry in the night. Yes, LORD, I trust you with my sorrow.
"Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy.
He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow,
will return with songs or joy,
carrying sheaves with him."
