Prayers for Bradley

My heart is no longer breaking. I miss Bradley very much but I am trusting God for his care. I will always love this precious little boy but he is not my grandson. The above picture was taken the day the results from the paternity test came back. My son has chosen to severe this relationship so I must follow suit. I pray for him daily and trust God for his future. God has promised to be a helper to the fatherless. Here are a few verses that I am claiming for Bradley.

Psalm 10:14 "...thou art the helper of the fatherless."

Psalm 10:18 " To do justice (vindicate) the fatherless and the oppressed. That the the man of the earth may oppress no more."

Psalm 68:5 " A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation."

Psalm 146:9 " The Lord preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and the widow:but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down."

Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the thoughts I that I think towards you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope."

If God chooses to use me to help Bradley, I am willing. Pray for me that God gives me discernment. Pray for Bradley and his mom that God will lead in their lives and that they will follow.

Thank you my dear friends.


  1. Linda,

    I am so sorry that you are going through what must be a difficult and painful time. I'm praying for you all.


  2. Oh Linda! Somehow I missed this update! I'm SO SORRY!! I can't even fathom how you must feel.

    I am praying for you and your family during this most difficult time. (And Bradley, too.)


Your comments are so welcome. Just make sure your comments are ones that you wouldn't mind that Mother read. I do promise not to invite her to read them though.
