MISCARRIAGE PRAYER (By. Mother M. Angelica)
My Lord, the baby is dead!
Why, my Lord, dare I ask why? It will not hear the whisper of the wind or see the beauty of its parents’ face. it will not see the beauty of Your creation or the flame of a sunrise.
Why, my Lord?
“Why, My child, do you ask ‘why’?
Well, I will tell you why.
You see, the child lives. Instead of the wind he hears the sound of angels singing before My throne. Instead of the beauty that passes he sees everlasting Beauty, he sees My face. He was created and lived a short time so the image of his parents imprinted on his face may stand before Me as their personal intercessor. He knows secrets of heaven unknown to men on earth. He laughs with a special joy that only the innocent possess. My ways are not the ways of man. I create for My Kingdom and each creature fills a place in that Kingdom that could not be filled by another. He was created for My joy and his parents’ merits. He has never seen pain or sin. He has never felt hunger or pain. I breathed a soul into a seed, made it grow and called it forth.”
I am humbled before you, my Lord, for questioning Your wisdom, goodness, and love. I speak as a fool, forgive me. I acknowledge Your sovereign rights over life and death. I thank You for the life that began for so short a time to enjoy so long an Eternity.

Thank you for sharing this prayer. I lost my baby in July, also a miscarriage. Just today I was searching for something like this. I'm sorry you are praying the same prayer.

I know that now it seems so hard and I have been where you are and through the healing of time, I can now feel the blessing of my two little angels in Heaven, but that took years to get to that place. I know I will see them again someday and I take comfort in that. Give yourself time to mourn and heal, it is normal to go through many, many emotions, don't beat yourself up, God knows you are hurting, take time and take care of you. God Bless!

May your little sweetheart be romping with Heather and Tracy's babies in Heaven's flowers, where there is no pain, only immense joy.
They are praying for you all.
May they bring us closer to Christ, who shows them affection we can only dream of.

I have said this prayer twice. I am so so sorry it is now your prayer.
God bless you and keep you and your family as you grieve.
St Katrin of Sweden patron of mothers who have suffered miscarriage, pray for you.
