I'm dealing with miscarriage - How do I start to heal?
Dealing with miscarriage begins when we are able to grieve and mourn the loss of our baby. The process of grieving must begin with celebrating of the reality of the child who lived only a short time within your body.
Consider the following prayer written by a mother while she was dealing with miscarriage:
Father God, I come to you in pain and despair. I do not pretend to understand why you took this child so soon. The death of this child has left me hurting and overwhelmed with grief. I long for the return of my child that miscarried; please help me to accept Your will and Your way. Please Father, help me to give this child to You to hold until we are reunited in Your presence.
Help me to choose to give You my hurt, anger, and sadness. Help me to receive Your peace, comfort, and healing touch. Help me to trust and believe You will heal my pain and restore my joy. Grant me the strength to deal with the changes in my body, the rages of hormones, and roller coaster emotions. Strengthen me to deal with the grief that threatens to overwhelm me.
Help me to accept the fellowship of others who seek to comfort me. Help me to share my grief with my husband in a manner that will please and honor You and let this tragedy draw us closer to each other as we draw closer to You.
Give me a garment of praise for my mourning and replace my despair with Your rest (Isaiah 61:3) (Matthew 11:28-29). Oh Father, please wipe the tears from my eyes (Revelation 21:4). Hold the key to my heart. Amen
