Prayer for strength, courage, willpower, and a miracle

by Melanie (Montgomery IL)

Dear Lord,

I am so lost, confused, depressed, hopeless, and running out of energy quickly. I need your help badly. As a single mom of 3 wonderful children they deserve so much better than what I’ve been able to give them. I try so hard, but I know I’ve let them down. Im their only parent and only person they have to depend on and I’m failing miserably. With being in the hospital having lung surgery, losing my job, having no income at all, everything is being shut off and disconnected. We are now losing our home. I’ve tried so hard, I’ve sold pretty much everything we owned just so I could feed them. Whatever I didn’t sell, I donated to the homeless shelter because I do realize there are others going through rough times too. I’ve tried getting unemployment, public aid, and filing paper work to get child support. I’ve applied for many jobs. Nothing is working. I am so scared, depressed, and all alone with these 3 beautiful children who are suffering because I just can’t do it. I can’t make ends meet and they are losing everything. I feel so hopeless and feel like giving up. The only thing that keeps me going right now is my children and my faith in you Lord. Please please please help my children and I. Please give me the strength to continue to get us through this very difficult time. Please help us so my kids don’t have to be homeless, so they don’t have to go without food, and everything else they need. They are good kids and they deserve to live a life where they feel safe, secure, loved, and have at least one parent they can depend on, food in their bellies, a nice roof over their heads, a nice warm bed to sleep in every night, hot running water to bathe daily. Please help us. Thank you for listening to my prayers. I love you. Amen.
