15 Comforting Bible Verses For Miscarriage & Loss of Unborn Baby

It’s just two weeks since 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.

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 it’s 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 illness 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 are 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 myself 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 it’s God’s will that you’ve had a miscarriage, don’t lose hope.

Remember Pauls’s 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.

I would like to know scripturally why you think miscarriage is "A tool of the devil"?

Josh

Friday 9th of September 2022

@Lori, I have to agree with the writer. I think scripturally it's a tool because the devil is the father of all lies. The days we live in are growing shorter and darker where we obviously live in an Isaiah 10 world good is evil and evil is good so something good can become an evil tool to be divisive in a marriage and cause so many self hating feelings and feelings of guilt and loss all of which takes our focus off of God and unto ourselves. Also the devil being the father of lies could mislead us into believing either its God's fault we miscarry or God didn't want us to have this child which are lies the Bible references how in the end of days when the rapture comes all true believers will be called home it would seem at least during the tribulation no children are born. Children are innocent born into sin as we all are but are unaccountable until later in life but all you read about in revelations is death not new babies and life carrying on. The other part that's scripturally true is that these babies are not ours every soul belongs to Jesus as a father I've been learning God entrusted my daughter to me but she isn't mine I gave her back when she was baptized we as parents are charged to bring these children up in a godly manner not lay claim as if they are ours to keep forever my wife and I are experiencing all the signs of a miscarriage and honestly I never felt a deeper sadness with the 1st bleeding episode to now qhen the obgyn changed an appointment 2 weeks out to tomorrow to discuss my wife's blood results. Please pray for us

Thank you for sharing this, I had a miscarriage Sept 2017. I had to deliver my Son at 21 weeks. When I read other stories I always knew if it happened to me it would break me. I requested an autopsy expecting answers but I didn’t get any. There were no abnormalities found. My son looked perfect and very much like his father. Bereaved beyond words. I can only now talk about it. I had to trust in God and understood it was Gods will, but knowing deep down when this happened to us, I would never carry a child again. My husband will never be called Dad. I am now 44 and medically I have no hope but being christian I know nothing is impossible with God so I will always hold a little place for hope in my heart and step out in faith. No matter what the outcome for me will be, I know God loves me and is with me, where I couldn’t face the day he carried me and will continue to as long as I call on him. I know we couldn’t have got through this on our own. Sometimes I think, perhaps going full term would have meant I wouldn’t be here and I could have died in childbirth? Maybe we are meant to adopt? Only God knows but we can’t see or know these things with the human eye or mind. Me and my husband offer it up to God always and whilst we don’t understand the why’s we know he God has us covered and we are blessed with what we do have. Over the past few years I have struggled back and forth with God and at times when it was too much shut him out completely because I was hurt and angry but I know to well I am lost without him. The good news is I am still going strong and if I can get through this the next person that reads this will too. If you are struggling and do not have religion or perhaps have never believed. Call on God’s name the only way you know how, seek him, he will hear your cry and comfort you.

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.
