I thank you, Heavenly Father, for opening my eyes today. You have blessed me with another chance to breathe again. You have surrounded me with people who are always there for me. I thank you for health and strength and for your daily guidance in my life.
Deuteronomy 23:14 For the Lord your God walks in the midst of your camp, to deliver you and give your enemies over to you; therefore your camp shall be holy, that He may see no unclean thing among you, and turn away from you.
Heavenly Father, my heart reaches out to the single moms. Please help and guide them. Protect them from evil. Bless them with the necessary finances so they can take good care of their family.
May they be able to sustain their children’s needs with love and guidance throughout their lives. Each and every day, fill their cupboards with food and their closets with clothes. Fulfill their daily needs.
Dear Heavenly Father, I ask that you lift up every single mom who is struggling right now. I believe your love is everlasting and faithful.
Have mercy on these independent moms and their children. Send them help from Zion and fulfill their requests. Let an abundance of the fruits of the Holy Spirit pour out to them and their families.
Touch the hearts of all who come across them. Use them, heal them and allow them to heal others through your power of healing.
Increase their finances so they can afford their food, clothing, and shelter. Fill them with love and compassion so that they can allow be an example for their children and lead them to you.
Philippians 4:19 And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
In your unfailing love, deliver them from their anxieties, loneliness, troubles, and pain. Show them your loving kindness, for you are worthy. Break every chain in their lives and bind and cancel out every lie and contract from the enemy. You did not die in vain, Lord. You are great!
Prosper these single moms in whatever they do, water their seeds and continue to allow them to flourish. Allow them to take refuge in you. Shield them with your wings. Keep their lamps fueled with fire and a door open that no man, devil or demon can close.
Surround them with your army of angels and let these angels be their protective shield as well. Command your angels to guard them each and every day in their homes as well as on the streets. And with your sword, block off every attack from the enemy.
Blessings of the Holy Spirit
Let your Holy Spirit fill their hearts and set a guard over it. Let the Holy Spirit also guide them in areas of their lives where they need answers or comfort. Bind, cancel and remove all people from their lives who are harmful for their walk with you.
Direct their paths and keep them from the hour of tribulation. It will bring great joy to my heart to see these single moms and their families and friends rise up in the clouds on the day of your return and enter your gates with thanksgiving as you crown them with your love and the reward of your everlasting kingdom.
Thank you, Heavenly Father, Lord Jesus and Holy Spirit for everything you have done and also your angels up in heaven who I love. I know you have heard my request and it has arrived to you. Immediately pour out your blessings, in your faithfulness, deliver us.
1 Thessalonians 5:23 Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
And Lord, tonight as they lay their head down to sleep take all her anxieties and pain away and replace it all with your peace. Lord, please give them peace of mind and help to renew their mind to forget all the pain in their heart, in Jesus name, Amen.
A friend told me about Moms in Prayer
International (formerly known as Moms In Touch International) in 2005. I was a single mom and in much pain from a
marital separation. Through praying
with several Moms in Prayer groups over a 5 year period, God birthed in me
a love for prayer and for accountability. Both have kept me on the straight and
narrow path. This path has led me to a
reconciled marriage as well as given me two children who have a heart for
prayer and for the Lord.
It was the prayers of the Moms in Prayer groups and
a church prayer group that God used to defy the “norm” for children
from a broken home. My teenage son
was asked to be the chaplain for his Boy Scout troop. My 10 year old daughter
taught Bible stories at lunchtime to witness to her friends. In addition, she was
asked by a friend to help with a bible study at recess. I truly believe that
kids that are prayed FOR, prayed WITH, and prayed OVER (by their own moms and
other moms) can do amazing things for God’s glory. Not because they themselves are
amazing – but because they serve an amazing God who will always honor prayer.
I recommend Moms in Prayer to all moms but
especially to single moms. The task of raising children without another adult
in the house is extremely difficult. Single moms need much wisdom,
encouragement, and accountability. Without these things, single moms will likely
follow the destructive ways of coping with pain that the world offers. However,
they can find everything they need and from a biblical perspective within a Moms
in Prayer group. What a treasure I found in this ministry!
I am thrilled to tell you that after being a single
mom for 6 years that I am no longer separated. God brought me and my husband
back together through the prayers of many for many years. I moved back home in
Sept 2010. That was just in time to celebrate my 20th wedding anniversary
with my wonderful husband on Oct. 20th!
I give credit first to my Lord for restoring a
marriage and a family. Then, I give
credit to my Moms in Prayer and church prayer partners who truly “carried
my burdens” just as the Lord directed them to. They are the best friends I
have ever had. They cried when I moved but kept saying with a smile through
their tears, ”THIS (referring to me going back to my husband) is
what we have been praying for all these years! It is an amazing testimony to
God’s faithfulness and power!” Truly, God has done exceedingly,
abundantly more than I could ever ask or imagine through the prayers of many. Prayer after prayer…year after year… that is
what God loves to reward by transforming lives for His glory!

Single Mom Prayer
My God, I have such a wonderful child, a most precious gift I do not deserve. My heart melts into joy each time he looks at me, each time he calls me “Mommy“. He would embrace me and kiss me and all my troubles will disappear in a moment. Nothing else matters except his laughter and the brightness of his eyes. You know I would give him everything. I would give him the world if I can only do it. Gladly would I sacrifice everything for him, even my own life if need be so.
He brought me hope, he gave my life direction and a meaning I’ve never known before. Surely Lord, you have saved me through this child. Through him you have made known to me how much you love me.
But I am not worthy O God. I feel so incapable of taking care of your most beautiful gift to me. For what can I possibly give this child? My failures? My brokenness? My shameful past? What can I teach this child? How can I mould him into the person he was meant to be? What shall a single mom like me pray?
Yet you gave him to me, you’ve brought him unto my cold and shaking hands. Surely you must know my weaknesses, yet you must have also known I would call upon you to help me and to provide for the things I cannot do.
Help me O God. Heal me of my wounds so I may not pass on to him my bitterness. Heal me of my insecurities that I may teach him how to have confidence on himself. Blot out my sins that he may not be cursed for mistakes he wasn’t even aware of, and so that he can have a wonderful future ahead of him. Fill my heart with love even if I’m all alone. For how can I possibly give away that which I do not have? It is not easy indeed to be a single mom. Grant me wisdom. Grant me strength to face a harsh world so I can provide for him and give him everything he needs. Say unto me Lord that I am not alone for you will be my Husband, and you yourself will be his Father. This child is blessed, this I know, and I thank you for all that you have ever done and all that you have in store for us from your boundless mercy and unceasing love.
To all the single moms out there, I salute you. I hope that this prayer of a single mom somehow resonates the true prayers of your heart and inspires you in believing that the answer is sure to come, and is certainly on the way!
