Prayer Before Starting IVF

Creator of Light and Darkness,

Please bring the light of life 

to the darkness of my womb

Release me from this Narrow Place

where a Sea of Red will never mean


Help my doctors create life 

from our bodies, outside my body, 

so my womb may know 

the wonders of Your creation 

Heal my body so it can hold that light 

until it is full and bright, healthy, ready to emerge 

from its own Narrow Place

A life greeting 

the light of Your world

a shining redemption at last. 

Blessed are You, God of Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel and Hannah

Creator of Light and Life, Redeemer of All
