Thanks for the ongoing support. My daughter is strong with your support and I know without each of you sending up prayers she would not be holding up and moving forward. As we learn more of the abusive relationship she has been in (mental and emotional abuse) . . . we've learned of her fianc's threats of suicide, slicing his arm in front of her eyes while she was 8 months pregnant with twins to show 'he is afraid of nothing', the binge drinking (please pray for his healing as well, he has so much life ahead of him only being in his early 20's, we pray he can get the help he needs and live a long, healthy life) . . . My daughter struggles but has taken the high road when she found the grandparents came in and took all the gifts they gave to the babies. She went to apartment to find all the clothing from 0-12 months removed from the apartment, along with baby wash clothes/towels, play mats, mobiles from crib, blankets, diaper wraps, lamps, piggy banks (along with any money in it), stuffed toys and they left a note to say they were coming back to take the crib, swing, and dressers which they had purchased for babies. My daughter is not angry and I know that is totally due to your prayers and encouragement. We ask for your continued support and encouragement to get us through this and please pray for the dad as well as his parents to heal their issues whatever they may be. Prayer warriors . . . thank you for your endless support! You give us more strength than you know!

A couple weeks ago I submitted a prayer request similar to this. Then, I could feel God answering the prayers. I started feeling better, happier, more peaceful. A couple months ago, after coming home from a hospitalization for a suicide attempt, I applied for a Christian residential program. I got all of the parts of the application in really quickly and I was feeling hopeful about being accepted. I made a promise with God that if I wasn't accepted, that I would know that He had given up on me, too, and I would take my own life. Well, today, the residential program called me and told me that I had not been accepted. All of my hope for a future was riding on this, and it's all gone. All hope, all faith, all strength. God gave up on me. I'm giving up on me too. Please pray for me. I'm not sure how you could pray for me? Pray that God proves to me I'm wrong. I need to be wrong. Otherwise... I can't go on. -TH
