In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.

Helping a Hurting Friend Prayer
Merciful Lord, my heart weeps for my friend whose baby was miscarried. Please guide me on how I can ease her pain.

Help me walk with her in compassion through her stages of grief and help me find encouraging scriptures for her miscarriage. Amen.
Relieve the Guilt Prayer
Loving God, please help us as we deal with the passing of our unborn child. I especially intercede for my wife who is struggling with guilt.
