Is It Alright To Add Human Effort To Faith Prayer?

Good morning Everyone! Please, I have a beautiful daughter who is three years old and I want to start trying to conceive my second child. However, I want a boy now for a different experience and to complete my family.

I have been praying and fasting about it. However, there are some natural ways to aid in conceiving a boy prominent among which is (a) sex 12 hrs before and 24 hrs after ovulation and eating an alkaline diet 2 months before conception( the female sperm hates an alkaline vagina) so, I want to know if praying and doing all these mean I don't have enough faith or doing my part and asking God for help is the right way to go after all they are all natural ways.

*Please no bashing o I love my baby girl more than anything in this world.

    @poster I feel u jor. I av 2 beautiful girls and a son, so the pressure was on to av another boy. I'm pregnant now and the method I used was to track my ovulation. Tho this one is a bit more expensive, I wanted to increase the chances of having a boy more. U know the boy sperm swims faster than girls, so if u know the exact time u ovulate, u can meet as much as possible during that 12hr window so the boy sperm will meet the egg first. My dear that's what I did oooo. Worked closely with my gynae too. She gave me an injection to boost my ovulation. So hopefully, by Gods grace, He will answer our prayers. My dear prayers without works is dead. So combine your prayers with what you have to do. I wish you all the best and success too.

    Ovulation tracking is more expensive bcos u need to go for scan regularly (at least twice a mth) to pinpoint the exact moment you ovulate. Sorry I forgot to add that.

    First and foremost, may God's will be done. There is nothing we can or should do to alter His will. There is nothing wrong with wanting a son. However, God knows what's best for us. I pray that it is His will is to bless you with the son that you desire.

    Blessings!

    1. Children are gift from God and should be accepted no matter the sex but most times we wish for a particular sex, most marriages suffer because the man wants a particular sex...
      How does it work?
      go to this site: http://everydaycalculation.com/chinese-gender-predictor.php?gclid=CK3g-Ln6gLsCFacSwwodPD4ANg
      check your age on the left side, then follow the line to know the nearest month for your conception for a particular sex...

      Note;

      if your on born on december 1990, till november 2014, you are still 23years, that's how to calculate your age.

      The month you are to be in your ovulation period, is the month to target ...for instance, if your menses comes on the 25 December 2013, then your ovulation should be around 6th-10th January 2014 ... that is to say that you will definitely have a baby boy and if you want a girl, you will have to wait till april.

    There is nothing wrong with adding human effort. It is God that provides the knowledge anyway. However, remember to always pray that the Lord's will be done.

    Ovulation tracking is not expensive, If you own an andriod phone like HTC, you can download the APP(my days), it's very accurate, it tells you when you will ovulate based on the day of your last period.
