But the meek shall inherit the land, and delight themselves in abundant prosperity - Psalm 37:11 (NRSV)
A crisis exists among single parents within the most vulnerable communities. Many young mothers and teenage girls struggle with feeling outcast and alone in their communities. Pray that God will grant a sense of belonging to each young mother and father. Pray they will know that though often faced with the impossibility of raising their children in poverty, God has promised them life, and life in abundance. Pray for each one to deeply know this life-giving God.
