The Single Woman’s Prayer – by Mandy Hale

Dear God, 

Thank You for loving me enough to not always answer my prayers in the way that I ask. 

Thank You for teaching me that flying solo can create the strongest wings and that being a brave single girl is a beautiful thing.

Thank You for reminding me through my earthly father what a protective covering should really be and giving me vision when I am blind and can’t seem to see what’s not good for me.

Thank You for showing me when I’m settling. And when I ignore You, thank You for meddling.

Thank You for sending me guys who didn’t love me enough; they reminded me of what I’m worthy of. Thank You for standing back and allowing me to make my own mistakes and to find my own way. And when I crashed and burned because it was the only way for me to learn, thanks for not saying “I told you so.”

Thank You for holding my hand, even if I can’t feel it. Thank You for collecting the pieces of my broken heart, when I’m powerless to heal it. Thank You for being my strength, when I can’t be it. Thank You for guiding my path, when it’s dark and I can’t see it.

Most of all, thank You for loving me enough to keep me to Yourself a little longer and for using my weakness to make others stronger.
