ALL Single Parents~~Raising Children Alone

This is for all single parents who are raising children alone–men and women. What many don’t understand is that many victims of abuse become isolated by their abusers, then have no one to help them when they are alone. Many families are distant. Help is rare. So these single parents struggle to do it all alone… which is not an easy task especially when there may be two, three, or even more children to care for on a daily basis. And it’s not only women who raise their children alone. Many men have become single parents to children as mothers abandon them. My prayers go out to all for it is not easy path.

All single parents…
struggle from week to week.
For this is not an easy path…
leaving many feeling bleak.
For when marriages fall apart…
first we don’t know what to do…
juggling children, house, and work…
as the single parent life is new.
And many were already isolated…
having lived a life of abuse.
So there’s no family to help…
making us feel more like a recluse.
So we have to do it alone…
going on and on each day…
caring for children and house…
and always working with no play.
For there is not enough hours…
to do all that we need to do…
having sole responsibility…
of house and children too.
Get them to daycare or school…
then rush to work everyday…
then homework, supper and baths…
lastly bed before starting a new day.
And the stress of the single parent…
many just don’t understand…
for they have never walked the path…
to raise children as a single woman or man.

Dear Lord, You see the struggles that we face as single parents. Please give us strength to overcome our situations and help us to raise our children the way that You want them raised. Help us to walk this path as single parents to nurture and protect our children. Help us to provide for them and care for them in a Peace-filled home, without the turmoil that previously existed. Bring healing and restoration of all that has been lost. Lead us into our futures that You have planned for each of us as we trust You with our lives and our children’s lives. And raise up a new generation of youth that will serve You as they witness through the trials of their single parents that we were never really alone… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
