Prayers for Miscarriage: What to Pray When You Don’t Know What to Say

I remember my heart pounding as I saw the blood on the toilet paper. I knew it couldn’t be good. Miscarriage is a painful time for those who experience it. Your dreams of having a baby have been dashed. You may feel like you don’t know what to say or how to pray. However, prayers for miscarriage can help you through this tough time.

Prayers from others can be comforting, but you will also want to empty out your hurt to God as well. While it’s hard, let’s talk about prayers to pray during your own miscarriage as well as prayers for someone who had a miscarriage. My hope is that these prayers provide comfort and peace during this difficult time.

Prayers for Miscarriage

As someone who has been through several miscarriages, I know it can be so hard. You get so excited about the new baby to come only to have your hopes and dreams dashed. In my own experience, it can be hard to trust in God’s plan in this devastating time, and no words that friends or family say help you feel better. Whether this is your first miscarriage or you’ve had many, the grieving process is hard. 

However, I have found that you can have comfort for miscarriage in the sadness. God’s Word has many encouraging Bible verses, but prayer is also powerful as you work through the loss. You don’t need to have all the right words to say as you go through this hard time, but know that God’s loving arms are around you the whole time.

Maybe you aren’t the one who has suffered a miscarriage, but you’re wondering how to pray for a friend. Can I just tell you how comforting it is to know someone is praying for you during the pain of sorrow? Be sure to let your friend or family member know since your prayers will be such a word of comfort to them during their pain of miscarriage. Be sure to ask them how you can specifically be praying for them.

Help me to see that You are good all the time, not just in the easy times. Carry me through this and help me to lean totally on You. I can’t get through this without You. Amen.”

Miscarriage prayers for a friend

Praying for someone who is going through a miscarriage can be difficult. You may feel like you don’t know what to say or how to help them. However, prayer is one of the best things you can do for their broken heart. Sometimes your friend won’t even really be in a place to pray. She may be hurt and angry at God for a while. What an amazing friend you can be to intercede on her behalf!

Here are some sample prayers to pray for a friend who is miscarrying:

"Lord God, we come to You in prayer for our friend who is experiencing a miscarriage. We pray that You will comfort her and give her strength during this difficult time. We know that You are with her, and she is not alone. We ask that You would surround her with Your love and peace. We pray for healing for both her body and her heart. We thank You that You are a God of hope, and we ask that You would give our friend hope during this time. In Jesus' Name, Amen."
"Dear Heavenly Father, we pray for our friends who are grieving the loss of a child through miscarriage. Bring them peace in the midst of their pain and sorrow. Wrap Your arms around them and let them feel Your presence and love. Draw them closer to you through this time than they ever thought possible. Amen."
