Abused Young Mother and Child

Today, just a few moments ago, I was traveling in the area when I saw a young woman trying to exit her home with some difficulty.  Then she  was running out into the street and into my traffic lane.  Her face was that of distress.  A look I have had before and know and I immediately knew her pain.  She was indeed crying out for help and waving me down.  I pulled over and asked if she was okay.  She was not.  She reported that the father of her baby had beaten her, took her cell phone, would not allow her or her baby to leave.  She needed help.  The authorities came upon her request.  She wanted to go back inside for her baby but it was not safe so we waited together.  Star 88.3 was playing on my radio as it always is and I believe it helped keep us calm and focused.  I don't know why I didn't turn it off when speaking to her as I normally would when in conversation with someone.

My prayer request is for this young woman, her child and also for the baby's father.  That they may be  protected and feel God's love for them.  That they  receive Him into their hearts.  I pray for healing for this family.
