8 out my hand and asked

8 out my hand and asked God to take hold of it and to comfort me.” As he continued to drive and pray, thoughts came to him which eased his emotional pain. He thanked God for the fresh insights. “Let’s face it, we’re all human, with human frailties; and life can be terribly burdensome at times,” Horner says. “Prayer helps relieve that burden for me. I truly believe in the power of prayer, because my success and happiness are the direct result of it. Prayer gives me hope, which opens the door to where I can find desire and confidence that help me move forward. With hope I can cope. In fact, I’m quite sure I couldn’t handle the job of dedicated single parenting without the desire and confidence that I receive from hope. For without hope, I’m broken down.” Horner’s experience of prayer generating hope is taught in the Bible. Scripture reminds us that God is the ultimate source and giver of hope. “Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him For the help of His countenance” (Psalm 42:5).

The Bible tells us to turn to God, because God is our Divine Helper: “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand” (Isaiah 41:10). “So we may boldly say: ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?’” (Hebrews 13:6). 5 Find Support Groups for Your Child “When my dad died, it felt like my life fell apart,” recalls a 14-year-old boy. My friends at school and my soccer team kept me going. The guys at school were there for me. The soccer team got me out of the house for practices and games and made me feel a little more normal.” Utilize the many organizations in your community which are devoted to youth enrichment. If your child is not involved, assess his or her interest in a group such as Scouting, school clubs, church youth groups, and athletic teams, which include a wide range of activities such as swimming, hockey, volleyball, baseball, football, lacrosse, 9
