Confession
“Father, Your Word promises that we will be blessed and fruitful in our bodies, and that none will miscarry or be barren.  You said, ‘if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven,’ therefore we come to you in agreement in Your Name that our bodies are fruitful and we have all the children we desire.  Thank you, Father, for fruitfulness in our bodies!  We believe we receive our children in Jesus’ Name!  Amen!”
