Dear Lord, it’s been a year since I’ve been away from my first daughter, who I’ve never been away from for this long. It’s very hard on me and my husband, & we would like to be reunited as a family again. I would love for the opportunity to continue teaching her your ways and to walk in the destiny you have chosen for her. I know Sarah is a child of God and I feel helpless when I cannot help guide my daughter in the ways of the Lord. Shes so far away and I haven’t got to give her a hug in a long time. I havent been able to spend one on one time with her as a Mother longs to do with her precious daughter. I havent got to do her hair or help pick out her clothes. I havent got to help her get ready for school or pick her up and have her run to me at the end of her school day. I just miss everything and I pray I get this opportunity very soon. Her birthday is coming up and I do not want to miss a second one as I have been with her for all of her birthdays except for last years which was really hard. Please Lord bring her to her family who loves her and teaches her your word. I’m grateful for the lessons I’ve learned as I’ve grown closer to you through this trial and I’m thankful that I am better able to continue raising her. You’ve taught me so much Lord and I want to use what I have learned to be a better Mother. None of us are perfect parents but I want to be the Mother that leads my child to Christ. Just as I have always been. Because You are the most important person in our lives. I pray your will be done in our lives, as I know you protect Sarah wherever she goes. I have faith you will bring her home again. I trust in Your timing and I trust in You. I pray this in Jesus’ precious Name, Amen.
