Brandi writes: My husband and I lost our first baby at 9 weeks. It then took 3 years to conceive. I thought we had given it to God a long time ago, but I was still relying on man in some ways – medicines to regulate my ovulation, etc. I finally gave up on man after he gave up on me and the doctor said the only way I would get pregnant would be to do IVF. I decided that my God was bigger than that, and He proved true! My husband began laying hands on me and praying for my body to function according to God’s perfect plan. Within 2 weeks of prayer, I ovulated and conceived! It was truly a miracle!! Samuel (which means ‘asked of God’) arrived 9 April at 2.45 pm, weighing 7 lb 5 oz and 20 inches long. Just to encourage you – lift up your very specific prayer requests and watch God honour them in greater detail than you can ever think to provide!!
