If you are, then perhaps you can relate to Lorelie Zablan’s story.
Lorelie could not count how many times she had prayed and hoped for a baby. When she and her husband married, they wanted to get pregnant right away.
But, after six long years of trying, the couple still remained childless. They eventually found out that Lorelie has Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) which prevented her from conceiving.
“The egg cell doesn’t multiply; it is not enough for me to conceive. I was also thinking, what if my husband looks for another woman because I cannot give him a child? I was so scared,” Lorelie shared.
All her horrors came to life when her spouse confessed that he was having an affair.
Scared, frustrated, and devastated, Lorelie spiraled into depression. She couldn’t help feeling that she failed as a woman and as a wife.
She recalled, “It came to a point where I asked my husband, ‘Am I ugly? How could you do that to me?’ He said the problem was not me. But when you’re in that situation, how else would you think? I didn’t know what to do.”
Lorelie got an answer while watching The 700 Club Asia.
Inspired by the encouraging prayers of the hosts, she got in touch with the CBN Asia Prayer Center. She poured out all her emotions, hoping that one day, her miracle would come.
“I texted my prayer requests to the Prayer Center. I was praying for a baby and asking God to restore my marriage,” Lorelie said.
The prayers from the Prayer Center inspired Lorelie so much that she wanted to share the comfort she received. Partnering her prayers with obedience, she decided to donate 500 pesos every month to the ministry. She also learned to forgive her husband.
“God helped us fix our marriage,” Lorelie said. “My husband asked for forgiveness and showed me that he regretted all his actions.”
Two months after she watched The 700 Club Asia, Lorelie became pregnant!
She gave birth to a healthy baby boy and named him Elijah Dave – a symbol of God’s hope and strength in their lives.
“God surprised me! My husband and I burst out crying. It was an unexplainable feeling. Even though we had problems in our marriage, God still blessed us with a child.”
Lorelie once longed for a baby. Now, her heart is overflowing with the testimony of God’s miracles and blessings!
She continued, “When I saw my baby for the first time, I could not contain my happiness. I felt whole. Nothing is impossible with God!”
Like Lorelie, are you childless and praying for a baby?
Waiting is not easy, especially when it is beyond your control. Thankfully, those who wait and trust in God will have the strength to press on.
Don’t give up on your miracle. Keep on praying, believing, and standing firmly on His promises!
“Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.” (Psalm 27:14 NIV)
