Prayer for the missing piece in my family

by Heidi (Idaho)

St Jude, I am praying to you today to ask that you help to fill the missing piece in my family. I have an amazing husband and 3 beautiful and talented boys but I have a missing piece in my life and that is a daughter.

I pray that a daughter bless her presence in my family as I am not alone in my desire to have a daughter. My boys have expressed their desire and want for a baby sister and I know that my husband feels a piece is missing in his heart as well.

The lord has blessed us with 3 amazing boys and we are ever so grateful for those boys, but the longing to hold my own baby girl in my arms aches my body daily.

I pray for the day that I can feel whole and complete. I pray for the experience of loving a baby girl as my mother has loved me. I pray that the lord feel it in his will to grant my family the missing sister, daughter and granddaughter.
