15 Bible Verses For Miscarriage & Loss of Unborn Baby

Its just two weeks she missed her period

And the news of her pregnancy has sprung up so much joy in our home

Just the other day, my wife told me the names she wanted for our babies

Yes, babies because, through faith, she believed she would be having twins

But the devil struck

In the early hours of the morning, while easing herself, she saw a lump of blood

When she told me, I thought it was nothing serious, or maybe she is joking as usual (because we play a lot)

But the reality did set in when I saw bloodstains on her night wears

At this point, I was devastated

I could imagine what she was going through and tried to give my wife all the support she needed

As a practicing medical doctor of over eight years, I have seen and counseled multiple cases of miscarriages

But, this is the first time I understood the true emotional impact of a miscarriage

The most damning part of a miscarriage is that it erases the confidence of women

It makes you feel you are not capable of having and keeping a pregnancy (God forbid)

That’s just how my wife is feeling now, and I have tried to make her understand that “all is well.”

I am writing this post with a huge pain in my heart

But I believe someone, somewhere is also dealing with a miscarriage

If you are struggling with a miscarriage (or any of the signs), be positive.

There are many encouraging bible verses for a miscarriage to strengthen you today

Comfort for miscarriage during this trying time

1. Miscarriage is spiritual

I am a medical doctor, and I have come to see lots of women struggling with one, two or three consecutive miscarriages

Medically, we know most miscarriages happen because of abnormal genetic profiles of the growing baby

But, as a Christian, I know it is more than that

A miscarriage is highly spiritual and is a tool of the devil

But sometimes, God allows us to deal with these temptations

Yes, we pray “lead us not into temptations.”

But its God’s mercy that we are or are not tempted

God has created us in his image and likeness

He knows all we are going through

Right from inside the womb, he knows when a baby develops

I refuse to believe that a miscarriage happens without God’s approval

Therefore, If you are feeling depressed about miscarriage bleeding, stay strong

Psalm 46:1-3

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.

2.  Believe in God to keep your pregnancy

My wife is a very devoted Christian woman

Each day she prays at least three times

But that’s not all.

She works with the church choir and is very devoted to God’s service

I felt touched when she woke up in the morning (after noticing signs of miscarriage) and went to the church

She told me she is going for evangelism

In other words, she is going to preach to convert more souls for Christ

I knew as a medical doctor that she needed to have lots of rest (At least that’s what we advise women with signs of a miscarriage)

But this time, I had faith in God

We know that God will take away any form of illnesses if we serve him

After all, in my experience, bed rest does not always stop a miscarriage from happening

God confirmed in his word

Exodus 23:25

And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee

3.  Pray to God to stop your miscarriage signs

A prayerful woman has the power to stop a miscarriage

Yes, God knows the best, but don’t assume until you’ve prayed

I read about the death of David’s son with the widowed wife of Uriah

David had just killed an innocent man and married his wife

But even when it is evident that God’s judgment was for the Adulterous son was to die, David still prayed, day and night, for seven days.

That’s how you should commit yourself and your family in prayers

There many obvious signs of miscarriage such as vaginal spotting, heavy vaginal bleeding, not experiencing pregnancy symptoms anymore or lower abdominal pain

But do not be afraid

Commit every situation into God’s hand and watch him take control

Since yesterday, my wife has been in prayers. We prayed in the morning trusting in God for a miracle

Until now, she has not seen any vaginal bleeding or had belly cramps.

Philippians 4:6-7

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

4.  Trusting God after a miscarriage

I know within my self that God’s plans are unsearchable to man

Yes, we may understand the physical things of this world, but there is a vast spiritual undertone

If its God’s will that you’ve had a miscarriage, don’t lose hope

Remember Pauls encouraging words

Romans 8:28

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

God bless you.

  1. Thank you so much for this. 😭😭

    I am reading this in my bathroom crying, because just last Friday, after a week of knowing I was expecting our first, I started bleeding, and my doctor telling me there’s nothing that can be done. I have had to watch what I thought was my beautiful gift go down the toilet.

    I cannot even express in words the devastation my husband and I feel. I am utterly heart broken. Nothing could have prepared me for miscarying my baby. Now I face so many questions, doubts and fears about whether I can have a baby again.

    These words are all I needed. Thank you. I am also so sorry for your loss.
