This Is Hard

Dear God,

We knew when we entered this, it would be hard. Children coming from all sorts of brokenness.  Brokenness that was hard for us to understand.  We have prayed over these children and looked to You for wisdom.  We have done our best.  But some of them just are not getting it.  Why are some of them still so broken?  Why can't we fix them?  Why can't we teach them a better way.  We knew it would be hard, but not this hard.  I beg that their young hearts turn toward You and seek You.  We continue to seek Your wisdom, Your guidance.  Help us to say or do something that will help turn their young hearts toward You.  Give us the courage and the strength to keep on keeping on.  Protect them from the evil one.  We do not want to see these children lost.
