Prayer for Strength to Follow Through

by Michele (Massachusetts)

There is a child that may need me.

I don’t know if I am the one to give him what he needs.
He is not mine.
But if I can have him even for a short time
I prayer that I see this as a blessing.
Help me to help him.
Help me to make a difference.
For a while I am not placing my family first,
please help them to understand.
Help me to do my best.
And if some day I need to let him go
help me to do that also.
And if that day should come
protect him.
