Gracious and Merciful God, I feel so lost and alone, abandoned by You, even though I know in truth You are here. I have never known such profound pain, and it seems unacknowledged by so many. I grieve never getting to know my baby, and that my hopes for the future will never be realized. In You, O Lord, my soul takes refuge; I take shelter in the shadow of Your wings. I cry out to You and know that You will fulfill Your purpose for me. Amen.
