Comforting Scriptures For Miscarriage

“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”

Psalm 139:13-16

Friend, the Lord has created your baby wonderfully. I know that it hurts to not have known them as deeply as you desired, yet even in their numbered days the Lord has spoken this truth over your child.

They are, and will always remain fearfully and wonderfully made. May this be your memory of them, always.

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”

Psalm 34:18

Your heart is broken, you are facing one of the most gut-wrenching experiences that you could have imagined. I am so sorry.

You may feel so alone in your pain right now but in this very moment the Lord is near you. He wants to give you rest and a place where you can find comfort for your soul. Turn to Him.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ.”

2 Corinthians 1:3-5

The last thing you might be thinking of is praise. Yet, the hope we hold onto, found in Jesus makes a way in places where there seems to be no way at all. Today you can praise God, He is the Father of compassion.

He feels compassion for you and wants to comfort you in all your troubles, especially the loss of your sweet child. As He comforts you, you will be able to comfort others who walk this path too.

Prayers For Miscarriage

If you or someone you know has suffered a miscarriage, my prayer is that you’ll find solace in the Lord’s love as you pray through these prayers.

For the baby

Heavenly Father, You give and take away. Though we might now understand why, and our desires for this baby have not come to pass, I pray that Your will for them has.

As much as I hoped we could be holding them in our arms and watching them grow throughout the years, I know they are with You right now. The safest place that they could possibly be, in Your arms.

Though our hearts mourn on this side of heaven, I know that we will see them one day when we see You, and all the pain will be washed away and every tired wiped away. For now, keep them safely in Your sight.

In Jesus’ name, amen.

For a broken heart

Lord, my heart feels as though it has been shattered into pieces. It feels like I’ve lost a part of me and I don’t know how to recover from this loss. My time with baby might have been cut short, and I may not have met them the way I wanted to but I know, Lord, that where you have them is where Your good and perfect will has allowed them to be.

Please help me pick up these pieces of my heart. Lord, You alone can mend it and bring comfort in a time that feels so desperately dark. Please bring light to the places of my heart that have retreated into hiding, and weave me back together.

Your word says that You are close to those with a broken heart. Please, be near me, Lord. Please draw me close to You, and make whole that which is hurting in me. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.

For peace

Lord, I’m having a difficult time finding rest through all that has happened. Please shower me with your peace at this moment. Let Your peace flow into every part of doubt and uncertainty that I am dealing with right now.

I admit that it is hard for me to understand why You’ve allowed this to happen. It doesn’t make sense most days, and it isn’t easy to see how You are working in my life through it. But I know that in all You do, Lord, Your work all things together.

When my heart troubles me, and I am fighting against conflicting thoughts, shepherd my heart into your rivers of peace and rest. Lead me out of this feeling of unease and to a place of peace that only You can provide in the midst of chaos.

In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.

For comfort

Father, I am in desperate need of Your comfort. Though I know that You are good, the situation that I am in doesn’t feel good at all. It is tearing me apart and I can’t seem to find rest for my soul anywhere else.

I know only You can lead me into true comfort. A comfort that settles my heart, and brings my thoughts to peace, and even acceptance, knowing that Your plans and thoughts exceed that of my own.

Please lead me through this miscarriage. Let even my pain be used for good in the end, that I might comfort others who will experience similar troubles.

In Jesus’ name, amen.

For hope

Heavenly Father, if ever I have felt hopeless in a situation it would be this. It is more than simply feeling hopeless, it is feeling helpless. It is not being able to change the situation or not being able to help my baby that leads to this feeling of hopelessness.

I need Your strength more than ever. Please help me to see through Your eyes. Help me to hold onto that hope in Christ that is not only for today and tomorrow but that will carry me through eternity.

If it is Your will for me to have another baby in the future, please restore my hope and remove my fear of trying again. Help me to trust in Your timing and place my hope in Your perfect will.

In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.

For trust

Lord, I have to admit, it is hard to trust right now. I know it is hard to see clearly through blurry eyes, and that my heart can easily give into thoughts that are untrue because of the hurt I am feeling.

I trust You, help me trust You. When I feel as though nothing has worked out for my good, or my baby’s good, please help me to cling to Your word. Your word is true, give me the eyes to see it in my own life.

You are worthy of all my trust, Lord. Though my heart fails, I know that You never will. I pray that my trust in You will only grow and be a testimony to Your faithfulness in my life in every season I face.

In Jesus’ name, amen.

For strength

Every day, I need You. In the times when I feel weakest, Lord, that is when You are strong in me, and for me.

Please help me not to rely on my own understanding and my own strength. You are my refuge, help me to run to You when I feel weak and when my soul feels weighed down.

I pray that You would strengthen me with Your divine strength. When I can barely muster to get through the day, I pray that You would lift up my head and show me the way to go. Help me to lean on You and find the strength to face this journey of healing, one day at a time.

In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.


The Lord is so close to you today, sweet mama. He sees every tear that you shed, every thought that crosses your mind, and every fear that has cornered you during this time.

There is nothing that He cannot carry you through. I hope that these prayers for miscarriage will lead you to His healing presence and give you hope in the face of what seems hopeless today.
