Praying BOLDLY

Every night since DH and I started TTC we would say our prayers and ask God that if it is in His will, please let us get pregnant. Well a few weeks ago my pastor gave a sermon about bold prayer. If we really, realy, REALLY want something, don't just pray a little... Pray A LOT and BOLDLY! So that is what we do now. I don't ask God to let it happen if it is in His will. I cry out to him and boldly ask to PLEASE LET ME GET PREGNANT THIS MONTH. I pray before bed and in the car and whenever I see a pregnant woman. I ask everyone that I know to pray for me too. I'm now 6 DPO and I am praying bolder than ever that this is the month... and I praying boldly for everyone here too. I don't know if I'm pregnant yet, but i feel better about it. I just feel really moved this morning about the power of prayer :smileyhappy:

You go girl! That sounds great---really get that message across that you REALLY want this :) I might give that a try. I also do positive affirmations, although it's been awhile, so thanks for reinspiring me. I am 5DPO so we are on a very similar schedule. I am trying to remaind positive but don't feel great about this month because I couldn't find a lick of CM let alone any EWCM and I have a feeling this is part of my problem and maybe my hormones are lower than I thought.

Anyways, stay positive and keep praying! Good luck :)

Sounds like a plan my dear. I have had more that few tear filled prayers asking the Lord to bless us with a second child myself.

When I was at a women's conference a couple weeks ago, I wasi n prayer and I very clearly felt God tell me that I needed to be ok if this was not his plan for me right now. And I needed to spend more time with him and make that my priority. Well I listened, and I prayed, and low and behold I'm pregnant. =) Keep the faith girl, the closer you are to God the easier it is to hear his answers...

I like this approach. I need to get a little bolder in my prayers too. I just asked God to let this be your month. Praying for each other and supporting each other is the best thing we can do for one another!

If this were Facebook, I would "like" this post! :) The power of prayer can be amazing, and I hope you get your prayers answered soon!

I also pray about getting pregnant. I used to pray to get pregnant each month, then I started praying that if I don't get pregnant now, that I can gain understanding and patience and to be reminded that He has a plan for me, and to let Him work in His time, not mine. Its hard to take that approach, but I have to remind myself that He will always get His way, regardless of what I think. ;)

Thanks everyone for your prayers, too. I will pray for all of us that the BFP is on its way soon.

I definitely struggle with patience. Not just with TTC, but in most things, especially driving. Sometimes I tell God that I know I need a lesson in patience, but perhaps he could pick another method of teaching me besides waiting for my BFP. Now when I am behind a slow dirver, going 10 below the limit, and I am late for wherever i need to be, I try and tell myself, "This is just God's lesson in patience for the day, which is exactly what I asked for." :smileywink:
