Prayer about loss and robbery

One evening, while attending a Wednesday testimony meeting at the Christian Science branch church of which I am a member, I heard a woman share a testimony about when she was at a concert with her nephew, and she suddenly noticed that her wallet was missing. Because the boy was having a good time, and she didn’t want to stop him from enjoying the concert, she decided to look for the wallet after the concert ended.

Sometime ago, I went through a trying breakup with my fiancé. While I was feeling sad and troubled, other relationships in my life were in turmoil, too.
