Prayer

Gracious God, we long for a child and find our hearts shaved of hope as month after month we go childless. The love we have to give and share with a child fills us to the brim, but that love seems thwarted when our longing is not fulfilled. Look with tenderness on us, O God. Let the disappointment that hangs over us be lifted by the joy of your touch. Give us the patience that will re-build hope as we wait for the fullness of our love in the high calling of parenthood. We ask this for the sake of your love. Amen
