Asking for Lord’s help and prayer

by SA (New York, USA)

Dear God Almighty,

I am so thankful for each and every blessing in my life, mostly for the birth of my young son. I am a single mother who longed to have a family of her own. I pray that I will always have the help and the love of a caring family of my own. I pray to give a long life and health to my elderly mother and I pray that maybe I can succeed at the adoption cases I have tried for so many years but did not go through. I longed to give my son a sibling, just as I longed to have a sibling myself growing up and feeling the pain of loneliness as an adult and facing mounds and mounds of disappointments and heartache in all aspects of my life, conceiving, finding a partner, that I just don’t know what your plan for me now is. I carry this pain in my heart because my emotions are fragile and I miss having the complete family I had envisioned in my life. I don’t want my son to grow up alone and I pray always to be able to count on your help in my need. I know firsthand how hard life is when you are alone without a family or close ties to rely on for help. I find myself in this situation every day. I see all around me people who have so much support around them and wish I too had the same. I always have to count on some stranger’s help and see life so differently than most people. I want you to know that I am grateful for each and every time you send me help as I face life’s distresses, and also that I pray and seek your help and lastly that I may be able to have a complete family and people to call my own always. Amen.
