Help for Single Moms: A Prayer for You This Sunday, May 1st

One of the things that has been on my heart as I’ve been working on Single Mom Spot is the need for consistent prayer, not just in my own life, but for all the women that are on the unique journey of single motherhood. The most powerful ways that we can provide help single moms in this community is through prayer.

Tonight, I was cuddled up reading on the couch after I put the kids to bed and I felt prompted to right down the prayer that was on my heart.

There’s a little notebook I keep around (it moves throughout the week and even through the course of the day as I jot ideas down) but it was right in front of me and as soon as I picked it up these were the words that came out:

My Prayer for Single Moms

“This week I’m praying for mamas whose children are emotionally struggling with their circumstances (mainly the struggle of a divided home life). 

My children struggle with this. And I struggle watching them. I didn’t grow up in single parent home so while I can guess at what they are feeling, I really don’t know.

I pray that God would lead our hearts as mothers and show us what our kids are needed from us right now. That He will show us specifically how to help and comfort them so that they feel loved, safe and secure.  

God, please help us to create stability in our homes. Help us to rest in the assurance that if we build our homes and our lives with our children around you that you will be the ROCK, THE FOUNDATION and THE LEADER of our families. That you will help us in times when we feel alone and out of our depth. Help us not to get discouraged when we try to lift our children up and when we watch them wrestle with burdens that are bigger than they deserve. 

I love you Father, Thank you for the blessings that you have given us and be with us in the coming week. AMEN.”

I hope that if this prayer resonates with you that you will use it every day this week and beyond. Pray consistently for your kids. Pray consistently about anything. God hears you and YOUR PRAYERS invite the power of heaven into your life.

Thank you for reading ladies.

With Love,
