I have three sisters who are single parents. The divorce rate keeps rising. None of my sisters wanted to be divorce, but their husband became unfaithful. Now they are forced to raise their children alone with the dad's being part- timers. One thing I have seen through the years with the ones that have been divorce longer is that it is not easy and it is not easy on the kids. The kids suffer. They grow angry and angry at God.
I wanted to start this thread for us to pray for single parents and their children. They need our prayers. Some are struggling financially. Some are struggling emotionally. Some are struggling spiritually. Some are struggling in all of these areas. Some become weak and broken and need our prayers to become strong for the sake of their children.
Let us pray for their motherhood or fatherhood and for their children. So if you have any brothers or sisters who are single after a divorce or just a single parent and could use prayers, place their names, first names only on our list. You don't need to write their kids names down, just say how many kids they have. I will get things started by mentioning my three sisters.
Please pray for:
Lillian and her two children
Norma and her two children
Debbie and her two children.
God Bless and thank you.
So many single parent are trying their best to be good Catholic parents on their own without the help of a spouse. Sometimes, they have the ex as an opponent in raising their kids Catholic. Please Lord, having mercy on their single parents and give them the grace they need to raise their children in the Catholic Faith with love and mercy. Help them be patient and loving even when they feel like giving up because they are exhausted being mother and father. Bless them Lord with many graces and give them the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Increase in them the gift of Faith, Hope, and Charity. May they never give up Hope in You and in their children. Amen.
