Following news last week that Bristol Palin’s wedding to Dakota Meyer had been called off, the single mom wrote a blog post on Tuesday in which she asked for prayers and support.

Referring to the canceled wedding as “the elephant-in-the-room,” Palin, 24, wrote in a blog post on the religious website Patheos that “this is a painful time for family and friends and I would just really appreciate your prayers.”

“I know God’s plan is greater than anything else, and [my son] Tripp and I are in Alaska beginning to rebuild our lives under much different circumstances than we anticipated,” Palin added.
