Jennifer D
It's hard being a single parent with anxiety and panic disorders along with some depression.

This prayer circle is for myself. I have been a single christian mother for almost a year and a half now, and I need your prayers for my wellbeing, strength, and good positive reinforcement.

I have a problem with chronic anxiety, and occasional panic attacks. Bouts of depression, and I am a single mother who has a beautiful child that is 2.5yrs. I struggle with trying to get his father to spend more time with him, other than 4 days a month.

He does not have the same attitude about our child, and he is a very selfish person. This causes me havoc that will prompt an anxiety attack to occur. I am trying to come off of my medication, and trying to give everything to God, for everyone that is human knows that it is not always that easy. Please pray for me, and if anyone has any of these feelings about anxiety, fear, depression, or panic, you can enroll in my group about it. There is nothing any better than to have positive feedback.

Dear Lord, provide this child with comfort and soothing. Let her know and believe that a pathway has already been cleared.
Jenn, If God is behind you then who can be against you?

Dear Kind Heavenly Father, I pray that you will help Jenn with her fears, panic attacks and depression. I know what she is going thru for I have suffered with the same things. I pray that you will give her strength to get thru the troublesome times. I also pray for her son's father that he will spend more time with his son. Help Jenn to lean on you when times are hard and help her to see that she can always depend on You no matter what comes her way. You are the light at the end of her tunnel. All these things we ask in Jesus name. Amen.

Dear Jenn: I can relate to your situation. I have been in the same position. Please don't stop your medication. Many times is a "chemical imbalance" and you can suffer from extreme withdrawal symptons. I will pray for you and your son. One day his father will realize what he is doing to his son. In the meantime, be at peace knowing that you are doing the best you can under the circumstances. Take care.

Heavenly Father, I pray that you send this child of your comfort and reassurance. Let her experience your presence more fully during these times of trial and angst. You keep her safe at all times, making the right words available to her mind when she needs them and giving her the light she needs. Ease the memories and worries that have been fostered from the past with soothing comfort that all is well and following your path.

It will be ok - I can tell you that I know what it is like and that it is not easy. I pray that you and your little one know that they/you have a father and that he lives in heaven and that as long as you look to him that you will not need the world. I pray that you might know the peace and love of all that care for you even the Lord. JML

I know it can't be easy to be a single parent. I know that God will help you thru the hard times. He is a faithful and loving God. He cares for you and your child, and your life situation. We can not control what other people do. I know it's hard, but it's something you can conquer with God's help. I've been depressed, still am sometimes. I've never had panic attacks but know others who have. What helps me most, is getting into God's word the Bible. It gives me comfort, and hope in God, I'm learning to trust him more each day. I know you want your child's father involved in your child's life. I want you to pray for your childs father, that God would be in control of that situation. Sometimes we have to let go and pray that God would interven? for us.
Let's Pray!
Father God, I pray for Jenn and her child, give them your peace that passes all understanding. Help Jenn to trust you with all her heart, God guide her, protect them. Give her wisdom that only comes from you. Lord, you love Jenn and her child, you love the father of this child. Lord, bless Jenn in a special way, right now. Lord may your will be in her life and the fathers life. Lord, help Jenn thru the hard times. I pray in the precious name of Jesus. Amen!

I am in constant pain also, whether is be physical or emotional. Since the birth of my last son Elijah James, there were several complications and I was in a coma on life support, when I came out I could not remember the last eight years of my life. I struggle today with depression, anxiety, bladder control, strained eye syndrome (yes that is really an illness that requires constant eye drops and of course glasses plus a number of other things. I am taking the advice of the lady that suggested taking walks, eliminating caffine (tough one), eliminate cigarettes if you smoke, help others, take multivitamins and eat more of the following: eggs, milk, cheese, yogurt, fish, chicken and vegatables. To help others we must first be healthy enough to help ourselves, then and only then can we help those that need us. Our family will pray tonight for you specifically for you and your son, I will also pray that the Lord put a light in your son so that your husband can "see the light" and make some changes. Just remember you can't change the way people think or act but you can change the way you think about them and how you react. Your son needs you now more then ever, he has a father, the same father we all have the Lord, Jesus Christ. I wish you the very best. God bless you.

I was a single mother for many years with an exhusband that would not so much as send a Christmas card to our daughter. My daughter is now a 31 year old mother of a three year old daughter herself. She lives in Las Vegas and is a stripper. My daughter also has mood swings and depression but will not seek help. I ask for you to pray for help and that Jesus will open rivers of love for both of you. Part of maturing is to understand you are not responsible for what your husband or the father of your child will do or not do. God will fill your childs needs when you ask Him for help. No man on this earth can take better care of your child than you and Jesus can. Knowing this will settle your mind and warm your heart. Don't turn cold and angry toward your child's father but show him the love of God within you.
God bless you. I will keep you in my prayers with my daughter's needs as well.
