A mother's prayer; a prayer from despair, for love and out of trust and faith in the Lord.

God, my heart is aching and I need your strength.

I pray that You will fill my heart with love and courage and strength; I pray that you will let me feel your presence in this dark time.

I pray that my daughter will feel how much love surrounds her

I feel boundless love for her. I think of her as a little girl splashing in the tub, and my heart breaks to see her as she has become. I love her so much, and I know that You love her more than I ever can.

Please, let her feel this love.

Please let her use this love to break free from drugs.

Please show both of us the path we must walk.
