  1. Thank you for your guidance and support, I am a single mother who knows the power of prayer over my little four year old son. Please pray that I am the mother that God wants me to be to this little boy. I need help from the Lord everyday, my flesh is weak, but the Lord is my strength.

  2. Thank U so very much! I’m a “Biological/Adoptive/& prior Foster Mom”. My childrn R from 8-33yrs old now. My 1st husband, home w/the Lord along w/1 son. Leaving me 5 daughters & 1 son here, 2nd husband. Yrs ago I served in Ministry, as I studied the ‘roles’ of Family & Church “Chain of Command” in the Word….& how the Father ‘Intended’ things to be -vs- how things were, in most families, I began to Have a Burden/a Heavy Heart, for the husbands/fathers, So I sought the Lord about it.
    THIS IS WHAT HE SAID TO ME….”Just as we, the wives/moms go to our husband when stressed/overcome w/emotions & even at our breaking points. We turn to them, hoping, needing, & believing that they will “Listen & then Comfort & Strengthen” us, then in our time of need. This is what they were built for, what we NEED them to do. THE FATHER THEN EXPLAINED: THIS IS WHAT A HUSBAND DOES, IT IS PART OF WHO HE IS. What they need to know is that He, God, the Father…Is a “Husband to the Husbandless” for THEM. A Father to the Fatherless, yes…A Husband to the Husbandless, yes also. But it always assumed its meant for women, why??”

    For a man, its normally an issue of Pride. Not needing help/comfort/or strength from anyone but himself. Or he thinks it’ll make him “Less of a man”. None of this is true however, & w/an understanding wife who Encourages him to turn to The FAther, as is his right & his Inheritance as well. Only good can come from it. Anyway, after this “Insight” from the Lord, I had no more Heaviness of Heart, & as I shared this w/ppl as I was teaching Bible studies, it seemed to offer Peace. I Pray it does the same for others who read this. God Bless in Jesus Name.
