It is me again, I hope you aren't too busy.. There is a problem and I know you can help.. Thing is I don't know if you are listening to me, cause I hardly ever talk to you anymore, and for that I am ashamed.. You see I been so busy latley, with work and family, and cooking and soccer, well you know...The reason, is I am a busy women Is what I am trying to say, I know that's not really an excuse, but ... It's my daughter, she was feeling tired all the time and we thought it was the weather..or the flu, but....The doctor's say she is dying, she has cancer... Can you believe a 12 year old can get cancer, I mean how is that even possible? I am so mad, we raised her in a safe environment, we gave her so much attention and love, and now, shes's going to wither away and in pain on top of that? An energetic child full of life and energy, lying here wasting away? I have blamed myself and I know it's because I haven't lived the perfect life.. Right? Letting the world stand in the way of being the perfect mother, that's the reason..right? I am so hurt, I am falling apart here, she is my rock, my angel, my little baby girl... Oh I am begging now, I am crying out to you now...I may have been away for awhile, but I am here now on my knees.. help me... please......Are you there Lord???

This is a very sad prayer. I feel the mother's pain at her daughter's illness. I hope she knows God isn't punishing her and that He loves her.

A very moving and honest prayer. I wonder if it was meant for the "mother" topic, as it fits that better than this week's topic.

I so appreciate the openness and candor here.
