Gina W
Lonely Single Parent

This lonely single parent who is fighting to keep a relationship with her teenage son, to be able to communicate and pray with him. Faith is wavering and qestions and accusations are being thrown god's way.

Hi, my name is Gina. I am a single parent of 1 teenage son who is almost 16 years old. I was never married and I keep hoping it will happen one day.
I was lonely when i was having him and I am still lonely today.
I love my son and I know that I spoilt him because I wanted to make up for him not having a father. He is not a bad child he just likes to give me backchats and refuses to pray with me. I get angry and frustrated with him sometimes and I'm realizing that I'm taking out my problems on him.
He tells me that I'm over protective. But how do I let go?
I'm lonely, financially I'm a mess and my faith wavers. Please pray for me and my son to live for Christ daily, to serve him and love him always through the good and bad times.

i can feel for you gina...i have a very rare disease called wilson's disease..i'm missing an enzyme in my liver that helps my body naturally rid itself of copper...which is in all foods we eat, so i have to take pills to bind to the copper & excrete it through my's so rare that most dr's haven't even heard of it! 1 in 30 thousand worldwide have it...i was diagnosed at the age of 19...when it was found that i had chirrosis of the liver was green & they gave me about 2 mos. to live...they sent a chunk of my liver off to the mayo clinic to be observed, but the night of my surgery the Lord came to me in my hospital room & gave me a new liver...needless to say, my green liver never made it to the mayo clinic (wonder what happened...heehee!) my life resumed back to normal ... i finished college moved to florida & got a new dr. who knew nothing about my disease & didn't care to learn...she said my copper level was too low & took me off of my medication, i was then 27...after being off my medication for about a year my speech began to slur & my handwriting began to look like chicken scratch & that was only the beginning...i was a newlywed & the more my health husband got more distant...i had to move back in w/ my parents 3 states away because i needed constant help...he never came to visit me...& after 7 mos. he asked 4 a that time i couldn't even write my own name...but i refused to sign anyway...i had made a covenant w/ God & i wasn't going to break it. so he got an uncontested divorce. now i'm 33, living w/ my parents, i lost all my possesions, not to menion the fact that he hid my 25000$ 401k from me...he can't get to it, but neither can i...he also spent my lump disability check which u recieve at first...8000$...i just wanted u to know u r not alone in this world...& my motto is..THAT WHICH DOES NOT KILL US, MAKES US it's brought me closer to my Father God who strengthens me Prince of Peace...keep ur head up Gina & just keep telling yourself "it couldn't get any better than this" & you'll see it will...always speak positive!
in Christ

Father, I pray that in this time of pain, Gina and her son would both have a fresh revelation of who You truly are and Your great love for both of them. I ask that this would draw them to you through Your Word and by Your Spirit so that they would both be totally healed, first as individuals and then as a family. I ask that Your Blood would avail for them, and for all attached to them. I trust that this will be done, because I ask it in Jesus' name.

3/23/2004 08:32

God hears you Gina. I too am a single mom, and know the road you walk is difficult. Be strong. Keep your faith. God loves you and walks with you and your son. This is the cross you bear, and you're doing a great job. God bless you!

Gina, St. Monica prayed for her son, St. Augustine because of his behavior. She prayed for his return to God and for him to stop being out of control with his actions. Now he is one of the greatest Saints of the Church. We here unite in prayer for you and your son that you will have strength and courage to love your son every day as we know you do and that he will find the inner spiritual healing he needs. May God bless you and your son, may Jesus heal the situation and may the Mother of God place her mantle of love around you both.

Dear Holy Father, hear the prayers sent to you for Gina. Help her to find fulfillment in her life and bring she and her son closer together through Your grace. Lord, she has struggled through the years to raise this boy - help him to be grateful for her efforts and to show his gratitude to her and to you through prayer and thanksgiving. We love you Lord and we thank you for hearing and answering our prayers. AMEN

Dear Gina:
I pray to our Creator that you have faith. Faith in yourself, faith in your son and faith in His power. I, too, am a single mom, with a 15-year-old son. Don't force things, keep the lines of communication and your heart open. I would send you a personal msg., but you don't have an e-mail link on your page, so this prayer is also a "hang in there" message to you.
My 15-year-old is my greatest blessing, but also exasperating at's the age... just don't force religion down his throat or he will never come back. Keep your eyes, ears and heart open to your son's gratitude and love. It's there, he just may not express it in the way you think he should, but it is in the way he knows how and feels comfortable with. My son likes to joke around and say the opposite of what he feels, i.e. an "I hate you" said with a grin will get me a hug and an appreciative laugh, while a sentimental "I love you" gets me a grumble... trust me, it's the age.
Is he otherwise a good kid? Does he do his homework, have decent friends, doesn't do drugs or drink...these are all VERY important things, and also signs that YOU"VE done a good job by yourself, with Creator's guidance and love.
Now for you... I understand your you have any close friends? It doesn't have to be many, one is all you need if the friendship is solid.
I pray for you that your faith remains strong, that God continues to bless you and your son and that you both have the strength, humor and love to become closer, strengthen your bond and strengthen yourselves and your lives.
I also pray to Creator that a new love comes into your life for you, so that some day you son will have a father figure in the home.
May you continue to be strong, reap many blessings and live with much hope and love in both of your lives.
In Jesus' name I pray.
