Need your prayers!

I need your prayers. I'm searching for a reason to go on. My life feels out of control, because it is out of my control. My teenage daughter has abandoned me, my mom passed away and now I have lost my job. Life seems pretty hopeless to me right now.

I need your prayers to guide me out of this sadness. My teenage daughter, and her older brother, have meant more to me than anything in this world. My daughter will not have anything to do with me. She has moved to her father's home and will not let me in her life. I have been a single mom for ten years and have always put my children's needs first. Why has she forsaken me? I am so sad and simply cannot handle life anymore. This is the story of a child who yearned for a father who ignored her. She said she would make him pay attention to her and she did. Now he has encouraged her not to see me. He is so vindictive and hateful. She doesn't know how to separate her feelings for both of us. We can both be a part of her life - but he will not let this happen. He has turned my beautiful child against me. How can a mom be a mom without her child?

Please help me by praying for me and for my daughter that she open her heart to me once again.

God bless you!

We're sorry you feel so badly right now. It sounds as if you would benefit from talking to a caring person who is trained to help. We have three resources you could try. We hope you will contact one of them as soon as possible. You deserve to get help, and to get it sooner rather than later.

1. If you are in the U.S., call 1-800-SUICIDE any time, day or night. When you call this free number, you will be connected immediately to a caring, trained counselor in your region. The sooner you make this call, the better. (helplines worldwide)

2. If you can hold on for a few days, free anonymous crisis counseling is available by e-mail from an international charity called The Samaritans. Send an e-mail to and you will receive a caring response within 24 hours.

3. There is a website you may find helpful, called Suicide: Read This First.

You are in our prayers.
