Sarah was 90 years old when she became pregnant. Elizabeth was called barren, such that when she finally conceived in her old age, she hid her pregnancy for five months.
Hannah is another woman who was bullied by her co-wife for being barren. She prayed until the Priest called her drunk, and the Lord granted her her petition.
Psalms 127:3. Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
Hebrews 11:11. By faith even Sarah herself, when she was unable to have children, received power to conceive offspring, even though she was past the age, since she considered that the One who had promised was faithful.
Let Us Pray
Abba Father, thank You for your unconditional love towards us. Thank You for the beautiful gift of our marriage union. You have given us this union to represent the love of Jesus Christ for the church, and the submission of the church to Him.
Lord of Lords, we honor and bless You. There is no God like You. You are a wise God, You need no counsel. You sit in the heavens and make the earth Your footstool.
My Father and my God, You have blessed us with marriage. There are those who wanted to marry but they didn’t find love or suitable partners. But You have been gracious and kind to us.
Psalms 113:9. He gives the unfertile woman a family, making her a happy mother of children. Give praise to the Lord.
Pregnant And Fruitful
Please, Jehovah God, bless our marital bed and make us fruitful. Your word teaches us that children are our heritage in You.
You, are the giver of children. You make the barren fruitful. You give children to an infertile woman and make her a happy mother of children. Make us happy parents to wonderful children.
Let a generation of worshippers come out of us. Make us parents to children who will call upon your name all their lives. Children who will worship You in truth and in spirit.
My God, use us, and bring out of us a generation that will fear and revere You. Your Word says You are looking for a man to stand in the gap. You are looking for a man who will not be ashamed of You!
May we be the carrier of such a man. Give us children who will fulfil your purpose in the earth. Children who will not be afraid to stand against the corruption and decadence in this earth. We are available, use us, in Jesus name.
Ezekiel 22:30. And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.
From Unfruitfulness To Fruitfulness
Heavenly Father, give us children and make us glad in You. Give us a new song and put a smile on our faces. Change our name from unfruitfulness to fruitfulness today, in the name of Jesus Christ.
You said that if two on earth stand in agreement and ask something from You, it shall be granted to them. Lord, I stand in agreement with my spouse: please give us children and make us happy parents, in the name of Jesus Christ, AMEN.
Matthew 18:19 Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.
Thank You, Lord, for granting us our petition. You have done it for old Sarah. You have done it for old Elizabeth. You have done it for Rebecca. You have done it for Hannah.
You have done it before, and You will do it again. Oh, we praise You. Oh, we sing Your song! Oh, we have our boast in You. THANK YOU JESUS! Amen!
