Praying for a Daughter

by Patty Brown (Bakersfield, CA)

My thirteen year old daughter is having a lot of trouble with her self esteem. She thinks that no one likes her, and she cannot believe that things will get better. She is a little chubby and wants to fit in. She lost her only brother to cancer and because of this, her father turned to drinking to deal with it. He had to leave and go to rehab and I think that all of this is causing her to feel different. Just pray for her, and for me that I will find the right words to help her.
