Lost, lonely and in desperate need of help

by Annette Williams (Yorkville, Illinois)

I really don’t know where to begin, first I hate my life, I am so lonely and hopelessness won’t let me alone. My children they don’t understand, no one does. I have let them down in so many way that it’s coming back to hunt me. To make a long story short, I got married, got divorced and had to find work to provide for my family, 3 boys and 1 Daughter. I had to leave them with family members until I got off work, well that’s where I think I went wrong, I wasn’t there enough maybe, but they was never hungry or without the Necessities they needed, I probably gave them to much. My youngest son, oh my God is in a Tennessee prison which hurts my inner soul, my oldest is locked up in Chicago on some kind of being intoxicated in a public way, my middle son is on probation and my daughter is here with me, and, it’s just like she’s not. We have almost no Communication at all, she work while I try to watch her children, two are in school 12 and 8 and two are home with me 3 and 1, I might add she just came to live with me about 3 years ago and at that time I was working she. Was not, since then my health begin to fail and I can hardly keep up with them but I do my best, I have good and bad days then I have days like this very bad. My daughter don’t appreciate anything I do for her, it’s like she think I’m obligated to do it, what I do is out of love for her and my Grandkids. She do not help out in the house( clean up behind her kids) and my patience is wearing thin .My prayer is to help us gain some kind peace because she will probably be here until her two youngest kids father gets off house arrest. I need Jesus to help me with all this, I’m at a breaking point, pray for my sons and my daughter to find their way in life, help them to understand how life works, God knows I have tried to do my best

  1. Prayer for Annette's family

    Dear Lord,

    I pray that you reach into Annette’s life and change her situation. I pray that you will give her the strength to endure these very trying circumstances which she is experiencing. I pray that you will speak into her heart and reveal yourself to her so that she may find peace and comfort within you. I pray for her sons who have succumbed to the temptations have brought them to be placed into correctional facilities. Father, I ask that you also reach into their lives and help them to do better for themselves and for their families to come. I pray for Annette’s daughter and her children that you may the break the cycle of pain and misery in their lives. Show mercy unto this family oh God. Heal them. Restore them. Shine your light on them oh God. For you are the Almighty, El Shaddai, the Healer of Healers, Yahweh-rapha and I ask you on Annette’s behalf to bring peace back into this family.

    These things I ask in the name of Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.


  2. You shall overcome

    I speak life to your spirit…i speak life to your soul and every aspect of your life.

    Tears may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning.

    Trust in the lord with all your heart and He shall renew your path and when it seems like everything is working against you, remind Him of His words in Isaiah 45:2-3 Where He promised to make your crooked way places straight…He will break in pieces the gates of brass and cut in sunder the bars iron…He will give u the treasures of darkness and the hidden riches of secret places that u will know that He is God.

    He is a God and not a man…His words most surely come to pass.

  3. 2 or more in agreement

    Father god I pray in helping this family to pull together, knowing that GODS is there to bind there spirits in love & heal their hearts from all the pain in JESUS NAME AMEN AMEN & AMEN

    Please play soft music at night it will stop the mind from constant thinking. Solfeggio frequencies tones & music it helps, find things to laugh about, a few good memories start walking after dinner together, find a church but take it slow with taking them there 1 by 1 if U have to & get them involved. A church family goes a long way it will help U to have a friend.

    Then talk to a social worker for help for both of U. 311 or 211 can be ur best friend talk to them its free information

  5. May you get help soon

    I pray that you might find the solace that you seek and that through divine intervention the bridge is once again built between you and your daughter. I also pray that you get some help with your helplessness. As a battler of depression since my teens, I can spot the signs. Please seek some help. It is not weak to ask for help. May the precious Lord guide you and bless you! Amen!
