Since experiencing the waiting for a child for quite a few years now, I've come in contact with the fertility god, Kokopelli QUITE a few times. Not in REAL life, of course, but you get the idea :)

I got really tickled though, when I saw this huge picture of Kokopelli in one of the rooms in our doctor's office...

Actually, there are SEVERAL symbols, artwork, and even a windchime depicting Kokopelli's picture in this room.

In case you haven't heard about Kokopelli, I found some interesting facts about him...

Kokopelli embodies the true American Southwest, and dates back over 3,000 years ago. There are many myths of the famous Kokopelli. One of which is that he traveled from village to village bringing the changing of winter to spring; melting the snow and bringing about rain for a successful harvest.  It is also said that he was the source of human conception. Legend has it, everyone in the village would sing and dance throughout the night when they heard Kokopelli play his flute. The next morning, every maiden in the village would be with child.

I'm sure praying that Kokopelli brings us luck and I wake up SOON with a child of my own :)

I hope you don't take offense to this but we shouldn't rely on false gods to answer our prayers. Forgive me if this was meant to be a light hearted post but it just struck me as odd coming from a Christian woman like yourself.

Praying for you,

I have PCOS, and a lady I worked with knew of our struggles to have a child, she took a trip to New Mexico and saw a little Kokopelli, stuffed figurine, I put him on our bed post :-)

Praying for you!

I realized you've posted this some time ago, but it's the first I'm reading it.
I must agree with commenter #2. This is idolatry and in direct opposition to God.

I honestly believe you didn't see it as such. But now you know. This is a fertility god. It's an idol.
You cannot be expecting a miracle from God (the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph), while at the same time praying to an idol. There are actual spirits (evil/demonic forces) behind all these idols.

I pray you ask for forgiveness in this.
God, our heavenly father is capable of supplying all our needs (yours included), and He will.

God Bless,
