I sit infront of a TV waiting to watch the Sydney Harbour fireworks at midnight.
There’s a mother out there, sitting on a beach, fearing for her family’s safety.
I sit in the warm comfort of my lounge, knowing my family are warm & out of danger’s way.
There’s a mother out there, sitting in an overcrowded evacuation centre, wondering what’s next for her and her family.
I sit at home, knowing my children are by my side or wherever they are, safe and sound.
There’s a mother out there, crying and mourning the loss of her beloved son.
I’m in the warm company of my husband and children.
There’s a young mother-to-be out there, who’s just lost her husband – he was out fighting bushfires, helping others.
My God, why have you forsaken them?
Do they not deserve your blessings?
The same blessing you bestow upon me?
I pray for the mother on the beach fearing for her family’s safety 🙏
I pray for the mother in the overcrowded evacuation centre, wondering what’s next🙏
I pray for the mother who’s heart is broken and is mourning the loss of her son🙏
I pray for the young mother-to-be and her unborn child on the tragic passing of their husband/father-to-be🙏
Have mercy on us all, dear God ❤
On me that I may show empathy and also not to question you God.
On the mother fearing for her family’s safety – that you will keep them safe.
On the mother wondering what’s next – that inspite of everything you are in control.
On the mother who’s mourning the loss of her son & the young mother-to-be who lost her husband – peace and comfort that passes all human understanding, that can only come from you.
There is a mother out there, who needs you now more than ever, dear Lord, hear her prayers 🙏
