Single Mother struggling to make ends meet

A mother who sacrifices so much for her son. Trying to make her son's life better than the one she had.

R.W. is the mother of a beautiful 1 1/2 yr. old boy with a physical disability. Though he is fine now after 2 brain surgeries, his mother lives in constant worry that something will go wrong. Though the father was in their life in the beginning, he has now abandoned them and refuses to pay child support or come see his son. R.W. has a job but it does not pay enough right now for her to catch up. After paying all the bills, daycare and food there is not enough left over to save much less spend on something nice for herself or the baby. Though she puts on a happy face for her son's sake, she is getting deeper and deeper in depression. Please pray that the Lord will provide for her & allow her to get over this hump. She needs for the Father of her son to do his share and she just needs prayer to help her get on her feet again. Please also pray that her son's great health and progress continues. Thank you.

R.W., Hi, my name is Alisha, I am the single mother of a 6 year old boy. He is the light of my life. I want you to know that I will keep you and your son in my thoughts and my prayers daily. God will provide. I can relate to your situation as I went 2 years of Ryans life without help from his father. It was tuff. To show you how God provides and works in your life, I now have a wonderful job that pays good money, Ryan's father is consistent in his life every other weekend, and they garnish his check for child support. So even if your son's father chooses not to participate, you can still take him to court to make him pay child support. I do not know where you live but, there should be resources in your community that should be able to help you. Look in the phone book, start with your Department of Human Services. These places also have mental health services to help. I work in mental health. When I was going through the tuff 2 years with Ryans dad, God and counseling is what got me through. If you feel like talking to someone, my email is me anytime. There are many people out here for you. God put us all here for a reason. You just keep loving that little boy with all you have, when he looks in your eyes and smiles, remember, what a gift he is from God, so lean on God to help get you through these tough times and he will be there through the good. Lets pray, Dear Heavenly Father, we come to you today thanking you for this day, our lives and our friends and family. Thank you for all that you have given us. Lord, I pray today that you will comfort R.W. and scoop her and her baby son in up in our wonderful comforting hands and let them know everything will be okay, will work out to your will. Let her know God, that you love her. Father, please instill health on her little boy so they can enjoy life as you meant it to be. Please provide for R.W. and her son Lord, you are the creator, you have control over all, help her make it through to see the light at the end of the tunnel. We love you Lord and ask these things in Jesus's name....A-men.

Oh Heavenly Father , I pray you provide for R.W. & her son. Father we go through so many trials in this life. Only you know why. I pray you keep her little son healthy. The man that has left them may you work on his heart to return or help these two that are in much need. Father, I know that you provide. R.W. keep your heart & mind open for things will turn around, we just never know when, but Our Heavenly Fahter does. Keep praying & get help from resources. God Bless you two.

Dear Father:

I pray that you will touch this mother and her son. Lord, she is trying so hard to make a good life for her child, and it is so difficult right now. Give her your strength that she may take from that to continue on the path she must go. But, I also pray that you will touch the heart of the son's father and make him realize the commitment he made to his wife on the day of their marriage that he will be with her through better and worse. Even though the marriage may not be reconciliable, he does have a son who needs his father now. This child is his flesh and blood and he needs both parents so he should be visiting his son and paying child support. I pray the child's mother is in your Word daily, praying with hope in her heart that you are there with her. In Jesus' name, I praise and thank you.

Hello R.W.
My name is Tonya and I am a single mom of a 1 year old. My situation is similar to yours in that My son's father does not help in any way with the raising of him. I understand your plite and I am praying for you and your son. Things will get better for you and your son. God is a great provider and he will provide your every need. Things may look pretty bad, but they will get better. I am fowarding a pray to you that was sent to me when I was feeling the pressure of being a single parent and trying to make ends meet. I still have some of those days when I feel that I don't know what I am going to do, but then I remember that I put all my worries and problems in GOD's hands let him handle it. He will you know. Zachary is a beautiful blessing to me and I thank God for him each and every day. He is the other part of my joy, God is my first joy. There are time when you need someone to talk to; talk to God I do all the time. Whenever you need to talk with someone who is in a similar situation give me a hollow my e-mail address is This is the prayer that I pray for everyone that I know. This was forward to me and I in turn forward this to you. Continue to be strong and put God first. Be Blessed.

And, their decisions are blessed.
Husbands are on the way;
