Dear God, thank you for my daily blessings I so often forget to mention. I praise you Lord for all you do in my life. Thank you for loving me in spite of my negativity sometimes. I’m a sinner, and I can’t fix my life alone, so I come to you who know me better than I know myself. I need you to help me in our broken world today. There is no respect or conscience in our world today. Everyone is only looking out for themselves. My family is falling apart and I can’t fix it alone. There are so many fragments and so many not talking. Daughters have broken away and are cruel to their parents. They say they need a change….one is currently a senior, doing grade A work and just decided she was tired of doing dishes(in a dishwasher) so she chose to leave, all along lying about the fact she had nothing to do with the plan and didn’t know why her older half sister said her dad and mom were abusive. She just walked out the door as her parents were breaking down crying.
Other parts of the family divided over political issues and friends have left for the same reason. I’m supporting a family of 5 (soon to be 6 as a baby is coming in January)on my SS and a small pension and I’m always broke and sitting alone in my bedroom. Two of them are trying to get SSD but were already turned down once and I try not to dwell on things but it’s hard. Please give me hope, peace, strength and patience to get through all of this and come out smiling on the other side. I’m 69 and feeling every bit of my age every day. I know you can do this Lord. You are my strength and shield and comforter. You are before me and behind me, my help in times of stress. I trust in You alone. Thank you
