I have posted here in the past regarding my daughters problems with depression and thoughts of self harm. She was bullied during her sophomore year and is now in a different school as a junior. She has a problem creating drama and not being able to resist "social media". She is in the hospital now for the second time in 3 months feeling as if she has pushed all of her friends away due to her behavior. She tends to repeat unhealthy behavioral patterns and then shows remorse and begs for forgiveness. It is heart wrenching for her dad and I as she is such a beautiful, kind, loving, talented, humorous, compassionate, warm and generous human being. I ask for prayers that she will open her heart and let the Lord work his miracles and carry her now when she can no longer bear the pain. Pray that the Lord will soften the hearts of the friends she pushed away that they may reach out to her and support her. She seems to be misunderstood only adding to her poor self esteem. I also ask for the strength to be the best role model of a Christian that I can be. May God bless everyone that reads this.

I've submitted a prayer request back at the beginning of December..It was for my marriage and prayers for my controlling, emotional and verbally abusive husband. I am having a very hard time this week and I am very uplifted by these prayer notifications suddenly popping up again in my email all over again. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for going back that far and not forgetting about me. I'm feeling depression setting in and having a hard time being a mom to my littles. I know there are SO many more important prayer requests on here but I thank those who take time to pray for those little ones too!

My 33 year old step-son has a mild mental disability which prohibits him from being able to manage his money. The family is in great discord as to how to deal with the situation. Please pray that my husband I receive wisdom, patience and insight. We also pray our eyes be opened if we are wrong. We ask for prayers that the rest of the family's hearts be softened and that they receive the grace to forgive. We ask that they see and accept the truth about the situation so they may humble themselves and co-operate. I struggle with anger against them so I need help in that area as well. Thank you.

I ask that you would pray for Erica. I ask that Jesus would bring her back to him. She is so blinded by sin. I pray that she would start living for Christ again. I pray that God would move in her heart and remove the blinders off her eyes. That she would get back in church. That God would remove the negative people from her life. Thank you all and God bless!
