A Prayer after Moving

Dear Lord,

We want this phase of life to be better. Fewer distractions, more depth, deeper fellowship, closer walks with you. Please give us wisdom in the next steps, specifically about infertility testing/treatments vs. special teas/chiropractors/exercise. Please guide us, and may we honor You in obedience.

You give good gifts to Your children. We are so undeserving, but receive so many good things from You. Our great(est?) desire is for children, and we see that gift being withheld. May we learn any lesson and turn from any sin standing in the way. We know, though, that we can never deserve such a good gift. But You give to the undeserving. While we were unrepentant sinners, Christ died for us! We trust You. Please increase our faith.

In Jesus' Name,

Okay, we are settled in a new place and have agreed that I will not go back to full-time employment for now. Instead, I am going to eat well, exercise regularly, and get pregnant. I’m sure that the stress of full-time work, a long commute, and a lack of exercise have just been too much for my body.

I just need to take care of myself, then I will get pregnant.
