Prayer for our marriage. We might not be able to get pregnant and having trouble getting along

Not sure where to turn. Been open to life since marriage and I’ve been in depression and severe panic attacks since trying. Tried a supplement to increase fertility that landed me in the ER. As a woman over 30 I assumed it was my fault. As it turns out my husband is not that fertile and I actually had my tests come back ok. I feel upset I went through hell panic attacks thinking I was dying over this and hating myself. We aren’t getting along now because I felt he didn’t even seem upset or bad about this. I worked through a lot of pain to get to a good place in this marriage and I also believed I was doing Gods will and wanted to be open to life. Now getting upset as I hear stories everywhere of people having kids and aborting them. Or our neighbors who keep having more accidental babies. I have serious doubts about my marriage right now and I feel that God has abandoned me. I don’t know what to do. Thanks.

I’m sorry you’re going through this. But God is not abandoning you or your husband. Pray the Rosary and you will find comfort. God may have other plans for the two of you, so ask for guidance. Help others at a food bank or do other volunteer work to help others in need. Pray the Rosary and our Holy Mother will hear your prayers.

Don’t forget that men often aren’t as open about their emotions as women are. Just because he’s not showing it doesn’t mean he isn’t upset or sad.

This is a very difficult thing to go through. I really recommend counseling.

Jesus, you prayed that the cup would pass, but prayed for Your Father’s will above all things. Please help @erosiona be open not only to life, but to whatever you have in store for her. Help her and her husband to get through this and to draw closer to each other and to You because of it. Please comfort them and give them many, many consolations.

I pray that our Heavenly Father provides you a boost of encouragement, guidance and other blessings, and facilitates relationship improvements for you and your husband.

Note that when Christ Jesus and the Apostles were caught up in a bad storm on the Sea of Galilee, his Apostles frantically awoke Jesus and basically accused Him of being inattentive (sleeping) and not caring about their impending peril. The main takeaway from that scriptural account is: Jesus did not abandon His Apostles in that storm and He will not abandon you or me, etc., in any of our storms.

Prayer for a Married Couple.

O St. Rita of Cascia,

Make us understand that the vocation to marriage
is not only a matter of attraction.

Enable us to see clearly that it is also a matter of finding,
in ordinary events, God’s will for us and then accepting it
– even if it seems to be baffling and contrary to our wishes.

Teach those called to the marriage state by the Lord
to reflect deeply on the delicate choice that will
influence their destiny.

Let them not be deceived by their feelings; instead,
let them look for the solid qualities that keep a home
united in the joy of the Lord.

Teach unhappy spouses the power of patience and
mildness. Let them not give way to discouragement but,
like You, let them save both the happiness of their home
and the soul of their spouse. In Jesus’ name, amen.

O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, Amen.

Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.

For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world. x10

Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.


Thanks all. After the initial shock we talked more and I see he is taking it seriously and wants children with me. Now we just hope that God blesses us.
