My Child Has Diabetes-A Mother's Prayer

This prayer was inspired by Katie B. and all the other mothers who are caring for a child with Type 1 Diabetes. I am so proud of all of you.

Dear God,
Comfort me.
I am so tired.
I feel consumed by numbers, weights and pin pricks.
Take my worry, Lord.
Bring me Your peace.

Keep my mind clear that I may interpret the numbers around me correctly.
Help me, Lord, to embrace the technology that keeps my son alive.

I ask Your blessing today on all the doctors and nurses who have gotten us this far.
I ask Your blessing on all the researchers who are
developing the medicines and technologies that will bring us a cure.
Please bless me with patience and perseverance as we await this miracle.

This is not the journey I had planned,
yet I know that Your hand is upon us.

Please guide and strengthen us.
Show me how best to use my talents and abilities
so that I may be a source of comfort to my family and Your light in the world.

I am so grateful for the gift of my son.
He is a blessing and a joy.
Let me not forget that joy is my strength.

May I be an instrument of Your peace.
May I be an instrument of Your love.
May my hands be Your hands.
My life is Yours.
May it bless my family and the world.

Thank You.
