My best friend of 3 years has always been very abrupt and negative. I didn't mind it originally because I was so similar to her. Now however, the more I listen to life 102.5, and the more I expose myself to optimistic, encouraging people, the more I realize the negative effect my once best friend is having on my life. I have tried to help her become more positive, however she is suffering from chrones disease, chronic migraines, and other diseases I don't even know about. She's so young and has such a heavy burden on her shoulders that she's trying to deal with alone. I've tried to help as best I could and tried to get her to seek professional help, however she refuses. Our conversations have been fewer and fewer and are now almost nonexistent. I have stayed with her because I feel as though I can not abandon her in her time of need, and I am one of the only friends she has. I have tried so hard to help her, but I can not. I have realized this past week that she is forcing me not to do what I want and instead to do what she wants. I have not been experiencing the things a normal high schooler should. She has also restricted my conversation regarding my church, which is something very important to me, so when she asked I don't talk about, I was extremely saddened and taken back. She is Catholic and I am a Christian so don't know exactly why she doesn't want me to talk about it. She has also been very passive aggressive about my decision to go to prom, because she doesn't want to, and she's been making me feel very guilty about my decision. I have put up with her for a long time and am not sure how much longer I can do it. I don't know what to do because I feel as though I can't leave her, but I also can't stay friends with her. I have been praying about this for a while, however am not sure what God wants me to do. Any advice anyone has would be much appreciated. Thank you for praying for me and also please pray for my friend who is going through unimaginable pain every day.

I've been a pagan for 30+ years. Even though I've only listened to Life 102.5 (for 10 years now) and read the Bible and other Christian books I still have not managed to find my belief in Jesus. I want nothing more in this world then to become a Christian who loves God with all my heart, soul and spirit. My heart is hardened and my mind is closed. Plus I'm a control freak who doesn't like the idea of submitting my will to God. Please pray that God will get through my barriers and allow me to believe in Him, love Him, live for Him and become a Christian. And lead me to a church that I can belong to. :-) Thank you so much.

My wife and I have struggled financially for our entire marriage while trying to raise four little kids. There just aren't any decent jobs in my area. I finally got a GREAT job with a wonderful Christian company but... it's a day's drive from where my mother lives. We have been living in the same small town for a couple of years and now we are moving. She, of course, is terribly upset. My mother struggles with being controlling and domineering, so this move is like a breath of fresh air for us. Please pray that my mother would knock it off already so we can enjoy her company without feeling like we have to move to Jupiter to get some peace in our lives.

Please Pray for my brother, he is so lost and confused. My sister-N-law just informed him that she is filing for a divorce and that are done. They are a very Christian family and even I do not understand why she is doing this. Please pray that God would heal her heart and give this marriage what it deserves, a chance. Thank You and God Bless
