For Those Who are Struggling to Conceive

Nancy Campbell has been one of my favorite mentors for a long time. She’s a godly, older woman with a lot of wisdom. She has been writing for many years encouraging women to have children and as many as the Lord blesses them with. She wrote one recently encouraging women who were "done" to reconsider but some women commented on not being able to have children and the pain they have because of it. She wrote this following post for those women grieving because they can’t have children.


In response to my Dynasty Post, some of you shared how you are suffering from different medical problems that have been detrimental to you in your pregnancy, birth, or continuing. I was so grieved to hear these stories and have been praying for you. In fact, I have been praying through the night for God to come and heal you and deliver you. I would encourage you to not give up in prayer either.

1. Ask the elders of your church to come and pray for you. If we are sick, this is what we are told to do in God’s Word, and yet often we forget to do it, don’t we? James 5:14-156 states: “Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: and the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”

2. Ask your husband to pray over you daily. Your husband is your covering and God hears his cries for you. I believe it is a powerful thing for a husband to pray over his wife each day. I believe you will see great blessings through this.

3. Seek the Lord diligently, along with your husband, for God’s healing and also for the lifestyle He wants you to live. As we seek the Lord, He leads us into His ways. Often we have grown up on the SAD {Standard American Diet} which leads to disease and obesity. We must seek the Lord for the way He wants us to live and eat, not as a diet, but a lifestyle. God has natural ways of healing too that can literally transform our bodies. And the body is renewing itself every seven years and therefore your body can be renewed and healed. Of course, one of the most important things to do as a start is to eliminate all sugar from your diet. It is the cause of so many problems.

May God lead you into all His wisdom. Oh how we need it. May He pour our His rich blessings upon you, bring healing to your body, and peace and joy to your marriage and your home.

Much love, Nancy Campbell
