There are many times in our lives where we feel like we have nowhere to go for help. Thankfully, God has promised that we can always run to Him. One of the ways that He ministers to our heart is through His Word. Today, we will chat about seven Bible verses on fruitfulness of the womb that God can use to help you develop confidence in His plan.
As we search God’s Word, we will also discuss women in the Bible who demonstrated extraordinary faith in their period of waiting for children. Friend, if you are in that season, I pray that you find encouragement in the Scriptures and stories that we will explore.
Top 6 Bible Verses for Fruitfulness of the Womb
Sweet sister, trusting God’s plan can be hard. You may be weary in the waiting. Maybe you have given up. Take a look at these women in Scripture. God opened their wombs and proved through their lives that His timing is best. He is so faithful.
We use the WEB version of the Bible, but feel free to use your favorite version.
1. Deuteronomy 30:9
“Yahweh your God will make you plenteous in all the work of your hand, in the fruit of your body, and in the fruit of your cattle, and in the fruit of your ground, for good; for Yahweh will again rejoice over you for good, as He rejoiced over your fathers.”
2. Psalm 128:3
“Your wife will be as a fruitful vine, In the innermost parts of your housel Your children like olive plants, Around your table.
3. Genesis 1:28
“God blessed them. God said to them, ‘Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth, and subdue it. Have dominion over the fish of the seas, over the birds of the sky, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.’”
4. Deuteronomy 28:4
“Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, and the fruit of your ground, and the fruit of your animals, the increase of your cattle, and the young of your flock.”

Women in the Bible to Model After
These verses on fruitfulness of the womb are not the only ways to be encouraged through God’s Word in your season of waiting. Scripture is also filled with stories of beautiful women who placed their trust in the Lord, as they have waited on God’s timing in bearing children. Use these stories to remind your heart of God’s faithfulness to His people.
The story of Hannah can be found in 1 Samuel 1-2.
Hannah was one of the wives of Elkanah. Peninnah, his other wife, had many children. However, Hannah remained childless and was taunted by Peninnah for her barren state. Sounds like a real sweet lady.
Hannah went to the temple year after year. While there, she worshipped and poured out her heart before the Lord. She wanted a child. The prophet Eli saw her there praying…He actually though she was drunk at first because she was so distraught. Eli listened to hear hurts and pronounced God’s blessing over her.
Because of the Lord’s great plan and the faith of Hannah, God blessed her with a son. She named her son, Samuel. Hannah gave Samuel to service of the Lord in the temple. God had given her a son, so she offered that son back to the Lord. Samuel spent his days learning from the prophet Eli and serving God in the Temple.
Hannah clung to God. She poured out her heart to Him and trusted in His timing. When He provided, she was true to her word.
The story of Elizabeth can be found in Luke 1.
Elizabeth was one of many barren women in Scripture. She was married to a priest, Zechariah. Both Elizabeth and her husband walked closely with God.
Her husband was in the temple one day when an angel told Him that his wife would conceive. Zechariah doubted what he had been told, because they were both in their later years.
However, Elizabeth trusted God. When she became pregnant, she knew it was a true miracle from the Lord’s hand. Elizabeth conceived and bore a son – John the Baptist. John prepared the way for the coming Messiah.
Elizabeth walked closely with the Lord, even in her barren state. She knew that God was good, even if He never opened her womb. She was so close to the heart of God that when God made her a promise, she believed it and grew even closer to Him.
Like the story of Elizabeth, Mary’s story is also found in Luke 1.
The story of Mary is different, extremely different. The fruitfulness of Mary’s womb was a miracle that not only changed Mary’s life, it changed the entire world.
God saw Mary’s faith and chose her to be the mother of Jesus. An angel appeared to Mary and told her that she would bear a son. Her response was a willing heart to be used by God in however He willed.
Mary submitted to God’s plan. She was willing to live out God’s call on her life, not matter how strange or difficult it was.
How to Pray About Getting Pregnant
Spending time in God’s Word is a great way to remind us of His faithfulness. Talking with the Lord in prayer is another amazing way to grow in dependency on the One who holds all things together.
1. Praise Him!
Take time to acknowledge who God is. He is the Creator of life. Every single breath comes from His hand. Praise Him for His goodness in your life. Praise Him for His Sovereignty over your womb.
2. Thank Him!
Thank God for creating you with maternal instincts and the desire to bear children. Thank Him for being the One who holds all creation in His hands.
3. Submit to His Will.
Acknowledge that His plan is always better than ours. Thank God for being in control of all things. Ask Him to help you draw close to Him in your time of waiting.
4. Ask Him
He wants to hear of hearts. Ask Him to open your womb and create life. Pray for protection, health and salvation for your future children. Trust Him to move and work. Ask Him to help you grow closer to His heart as you wait – even if the waiting doesn’t end.
He is Pursuing You!
Every story, verse, and prayer reminds me of one thing – God is pursuing your heart. He has not left you alone.
As you look back over these seven verses on fruitfulness of the womb, be reminded that God is with you in your waiting.
Just as He worked in the lives of Hannah, Elizabeth, and Mary, He will work in your life as well. You can trust in His timing, because He sees the bigger picture outside of time. He is always working for your good and His glory. We can trust Him.
And always remember… even if He doesn’t open your womb. He can still be trusted. He is good.
