Greetings Prayer Warriors,
Many find themselves single parents by choice, by divorce, or as widows. I can’t imagine the difficulty of standing alone in parenthood. There are so many responsibilities and stresses that are best shared. I envision the Blessed Mother all alone as she endured living through Christ’s Passion. But we are never alone and Mary knew that well.
It is the LORD who marches before you; he will be with you and will never fail you or forsake you. So do not fear or be dismayed." Deuteronomy 31:8
I imagine Mary’s enduring strength came from grace obtained through prayer to the Heavenly Father, and the reflection of His love in her community.
This week, pray for families that are headed by single parents. May they receive an extra dollop of grace, a large scoop of love, and an unexpected helping hand from their brothers and sisters in Christ. May smiles be exchanged, time freely shared, friendship enkindled. For in loving the parent, you love the Child and in loving the Child, you love the parent.
Peace, Joy, and Love,
Share His Love; Give of your time. Pass it on.
