It's National Infertility Awareness Week- pray for your brothers and sisters!

This week is National Infertility Awareness week. With that in mind, I thought it would be prudent to request intercessions for the 1 in 8 families in each of our congregations that are facing challenges growing the families that God has called them to.

It is an isolating road, and I know so many of our brothers and sisters could use the prayerful support of the masses as they navigate the healthcare system.


Yes, let’s pray for peace and strength for those experiencing infertility.

And let’s pray that Satan is unsuccessful in convincing people that artificial means of conception are acceptable and a means to an end.

St. Gianna, pray for us.

St. Michael, protect us.

As one who has suffered through over 9 years of primary infertility (not being able to conceive and/or carry a baby to term) and one miraculous pregnancy that ended in the devastating death of our only child to miscarriage, plus two adoption failures, I could just hug you for your kind post! :flowers: So many people ignore the immensity and isolating effects of our suffering, your post means so incredibly much to us. God bless you dear poster! :hug3:
