I am trying to decide if I should leave my fathers house to stay with my Mom full time, as he is abusive. I've battled depression almost my whole life, as well as self-harm. I do not know how much longer I can stay in the situation, as I've gone to authorities, but they do nothing. I can not decide... should I continue to go back and forth as I have for 17 years, or leave the situation? I listen and pray, one minute by the things I hear, or read it makes me think I should stay and be the light for my family that does not know Christ, but other times I feel as though I'm being told I should leave the situation. I have gone to my Mom for help, but she wants nothing to do with the situation, and I've run out of places to turn. I do not like asking for prayers, as I feel it makes me seen needy, but I've run out of places to run to. Please, pray for me and my family, as this is hard them as well. And please pray that I make the right decision. Thank you very much.

I am a stay at home mom who has recently been diagnosed with Lupus. My husband and I have two children under the age of 2, and we recently moved to the Madison area in March. It has been difficult for me to keep up with my boys when I am not feeling well. This past month has been physically demanding as we all got sick multiple times this month. I have been incredibly discouraged, and home sick as we live states away from family. Pray for healing and that we would find rest and comfort in our Lord Jesus.

my son is in jail for heroin possession. he has court next Tuesday.I ask for prayer that he gets the treatment that he needs.I ask that God keeps that mustard seed of believing that he has,growing and he realizes that God has had his back so many times.I ask that he just lets God into his life,and starts making better choices.I know that God never gives up on him,and neither will I.His lifestyle needs to change,and I pray now is the time that he will do this.

My husband and I were blessed to welcome our little girl just over 8 months ago and since then I have had a great change of heart regarding working. I feel very strongly that I am meant to be a stay at home mother so that I can train my daughter up in the ways she needs and spend as much time as possible with her and also welcome any other blessings God sees fit for our family. I felt that I was being selfish at first but I truly feel this is the direction that God is leading me. I have found a way to help pull in an income while at home but as the only provider currently (husband recently graduated from law school and there's not a whole lot out there right now) it is proving very difficult to make the switch and it's seeming like I'm going to miss my daughter's entire childhood before anything happens. Please pray that God allows me the grace to realize that he has my little family covered at all times. He has a plan and He will follow through on it and I need to be okay with the fact that I won't know that plan until it fully unfolds.

I would appreciate your prayers. I have recently changed some medication & whether it is that change or just life, I've been having periods of not feeling well emotionally. I've been having anxiety & possibly some depression. I am seeing a medical professional. Parts of days are OK, parts of days are pretty hard. During the hard parts, I feel very alone and lonely. I don't have any thoughts of harming myself, but at times I find I'm thinking it wouldn't really matter if I was here or not here. It's very hard for me to talk about this because I don't want to burden people with how I'm feeling or cause them to be worried. I've told only 2 close friends any part of this. I am blessed with a carrying medical professional whom I have talked with and who is helping. The downs while getting to the point of feeling better are hard. I would greatly appreciate your prayers.
