Pray for the single mom who has three little boys under the age of five. Each morning she rises early for the new day. Three boys who need warm clothes, warm coats and food in their little tummies. She hurries as fast as she can to the city bus stop each morning for her commute. Her little boys follow her like little ducklings in tow, trudging through the snow and slush.
Pray for the mom who doesn’t know where tomorrow’s meals are coming from because her husband drank away her paycheck. Again.
Pray for the mom who at 34 still feels like she doesn’t belong. Anywhere.
Pray for the mom whose little boy’s life was cut short because of a drunk driver.
Pray for the mom whose teenage daughter has become addicted to drugs and might not live to see her next birthday.
Pray for the mom who skips two meals a day to make sure her kids get three meals a day.
Pray for the mom who just found out her husband has been unfaithful and that everything was a lie.
Pray for the mom who doesn’t know how to be a good mom.
Pray for the single mom of four who does her best to make ends meet, doesn’t get child support and can’t afford to buy her daughter feminine hygiene products.
Pray for the mom who had a fight with her teenage daughter before leaving for work and got the call no mother should have to take.
Pray for the mom who has to choose between gas for the car or food on the table.
Who are you praying for today? How can we pray for you?
