Please pray for God's mercy this week as I am trying to sell some items to help pay some bills. In Jesus's name, amen!

A few weeks ago, I asked for prayers for my 7th grade daughter who was threatened of harm by another girl in our middle school. I reported it to a school official. With your help and prayers, God changed the threatening's girl heart and no longer bothers my daughter. You cannot imagine the concerns I had, before sending my child to school. My daughter said this other girl is actually speaking to her and left her alone. Praise God.

Ive prayed for years for this now...My Dad is currently in a nursing home suffering from severe mental illness and COPD and chronic pain. He is schizophrenic and also suffers from other hallucinations, anxiety, and depression, and now dementia. (and a whole page of physical ailments as well) Sometimes reading scripture to him makes him feel better, other times it exacerbates his hallucinations to the point he thinks he IS Christ and the nurses are trying to crucify him...even if I dont read that part. The Lords prayer almost always does him good, though, and sometimes he can say part of it with me. My Dad is not old...just in his fifties...he has struggled since I was little. I know God has a plan...but what about my Dad? How can he do God's work like this? Sometimes he gets "trapped inside" and cant even speak...and the fear in his eyes during these times is terrifying. Other times he is a perfectly normal Grandpa to my 5 children. Other times he is a two yr old child or a pregnant woman. Or Jesus Christ. Growing up around this mental illness all of my life has made me not afraid or off-put by anyone of any disability...so I can reach ppl that others cant and I have a special love for the furthest gone...I visit others when I visit him. So sometimes I think that maybe thats why this has happened. But I cant believe that...my Dad is not a throwaway person...I beg the LORD to heal him or take him but PLEASE dont leave him here like this....
