Prayer for Guidance and Wisdom concerning child custody

Lord, please help us be strong. I have temporary guardianship of my nieces. Their mother is in the process of getting custody back, but doesn’t seem to be able to do the right things and make the right choices. Please give my husband and I (and the rest of our family) strength to help her, and the girls, and wisdom to make the right choices for the girls, our family and their mother. I feel lost, not knowing if it is better for the girls to be with their mother, as she is – not a danger to them – but not putting the girls concerns first – or better to stay with us where they are loved, treated as children should, and protected. Please help us know- and be strong enough to carry out- the right decisions.
