Lord give us strength

Oh Lord, What am I going to do with that boy? I spent my life time workin’ on raisin’ him up right. He ain’t behavin’ like no man of the house that I ever seen. ‘Bout time he learn real responsibilities like a grown man do! Man’s got to start at the bottom and build himself up to get to the top! All that sweatin’ and buildin’ our Big Walter did was thrown away by that boy’s selfishness. Oh Lord give me hope when all hopes been lost! All that money thrown away for his own evil doings. He done no thinkin’ ’bout his boy Travis, or his sister Beneatha and her schoolin’- Poor dear Ruth, and with baby on the way, what they gonna do? Boy don’t think clear ’bout the future. He robbed us all blind of hopes and dreams. Lord please, We got to keep our strength in these tough times! God bring blessing on my family.

May I suggest thee family as a whole try talking him some sense? Or if he refuses to obey thee, then leave him be? Ariel apologizes for not being a good help. I tried…..O, please let tis family solve tis miserable problem….
