I need prayer for my friend, Lucie. She burned her arm badly baking Christmas cookies. She has been to the burn center and has future appointments there. She is now suffering from nightmares and depression. She is a believer, but is having difficulty..please keep her in your prayers.

Also would appreciate prayer for me - still am sick, and DH has caught it now too.

Thank you both! The band concert went well, I wore ear plugs, like the ones I would wear to the gun range, so I could still hear, but it didn't hurt my head as much.

Still working with the issues, and haven't been able to find the time to get a meeting in with the counselor friends/elder.

My migraines are surprisingly less at the moment, PTL!! So thank you for your prayers as I know only He could keep them at bay like this, after the botox injections wear off!

Karri, how did the concert go? Praying for you even now that God will bring healing to you, that you have tangible improvement quickly, and that you are able to find answers as to how to deal with your daughter's issues as well.

Thank you Jane.
One of the elders is also a school counselor and has asked if we'd like to met and talk (he works at a different middle school) but, I only want to meet with him with my husband, and I can only do that on Wednesdays, and those days are filled with my appointments. I don't want to have someone else take me to meet with him because I don't want to tell anyone else in the family knowing about what my daughter is going through. They would have good intentions and feel like they had to talk to her and I know they would only make matters worse. But this is important, so, I guess I will have to make time.

Please pray for me also as I try to get my illnesses under control. I'm so tired of not being able to do thing and not being able to keep up with cleaning and all that comes with it. I have a migraine growing, I tried to get rid of it this morning, but it is still there, my ODD's last chorus concert is tonight and I can't miss it. I also can't take any more of my migraine meds... no more than 2 pills in a 24 hour period and no more than 4 pills a week. But, I am blessed that the botox injections lasted as long as they did, almost 2 months this time. That is awesome. PTL!!

CheriAnn, praying for your DH, and for you, it must be difficult for you to have to watch him go through this.

Please pray for me this morning as I get my kids up an hour early (during my usual 'me time') and micromanage them cleaning the dining room and kitchen which they destroyed when they were asked by DH to clean it yesterday. I don't get much sleep thanks to insomnia, so that hour buffer time of waking up and having coffee is a must to get me in the right frame of mind. Later this morning is not going to be pleasant, and I will need to really depend on God to help me not be grouchy Mom, especially with my ODD, as she is 12 going on 16 and thinks she knows everything.

DH is very stressed lately. Yesterday evening he ran into his 20 ft ladder he uses to clean out the gutters. His car is overheating as well. He's trying to set us up for retirement, and all of this happening at once was too much and his temper blew. He's not good at managing stress, which worries me because of his heart condition. We have talked about poor management of his anger. He put a dent in the truck with his fist. Please pray for him. He's trying so hard - but learning patience involves trials....we need discernment as to when we replace his vehicle, and what with. I want a smaller vehicle that is more economical. He will probably drive my trailblazer and if we need a truck we will rent one. Pray my social security checks start soon, so we can do all this, and pay off credit card balances so he can feel better about retiring himself. I really don't want him to have to work a whole year and two months until he's 66. His job stresses him out and it's very stressful on his body/and although his Dr says no, working through the night on shift is hard on his heart.

Kari, I use my bipap when I lay down for a nap or just rest. If the machine is working correctly it should record even that use.

The muscle relaxant my primary doctor gave me does not seem to be working. I have ached all day.

Jane, praying for insurance to be swift so that this can be taken care of!

My insurance has denied my cpap (apparently they did this some time last year but are just now telling me?!) because of 'noncompliance'. I have insomnia, which is well-documented. I don't sleep anywhere near as much as most people do, and certainly not all at the same time. But because I don't wear the mask for x amount of time every night I'm not compliant. So I'm going to give them what for and turn in the darned thing (I've been trying to get them to fix it for months it has not been working anyway).

The following was written by a friend on FB. Her parents were missionaries who greatly affected my life.

Only the Holy Spirit can Convict or Convince.
We cannot control, convict or convince anyone.
We CAN control our kids surroundings until they are old enough to control it for themselves.
We, as parents, MUST be calling upon the Holy Spirit to convict & convince their hearts! Only HE can till and soften that ground so when you go to plant seeds of TRUTH...they can take root.

Praying the same Jane!!

My injections for my migraines is wearing off. I still have a month and a half to go before the next injections. I'm really hoping I can be better at managing them this time.

DH is looking for a new job, hopefully a better job. The day he decided to start looking, he had two phone interviews. He's that good, and has that good of a reputation for his job. Microsoft wants him, but we don't want to move to Seattle. Too liberal, and we don't want to uproot the kids from their schools and family.

Heard back from the pastor, he asked if he could confer with the elders and I checked with my husband and we both agreed to say yes. Now a girl at her school who claims to be a Christian is making matters worse, acting very un-Christian towards her and this group who all claim to be bi or gay. My heart aches. I know this is a hard time for everyone at this point of life, but she is making things worse by her choice of friends and all of this.

When you talk to your Pastor, ask about demonic oppression and how to combat it. What Cherri Ann said made me think of it. There are verses you can use to claim the Blood of Jesus over your daughter and in your home. The song, There is Power in the Blood, is a good one to sing when feeling down.

Karri- So sorry you are having such a hard time. Seems to be coming at you from all sides. Praying for you. I agree with Jane- I am a church secretary-he will make time for you as you need to talk to him.

Things seem to be coming at you from all sides. Satan is really trying to beat you up. I know I had been feeling pretty beat up myself, and I remembered I had not been listening to/singing my Worship music! I need to do that! Also pray often and make sure I am in the Word!

If I don't Satan can really get me down.


--Lord Jesus, please fill Karri with your peace, with your strength. Bring healing to her body and mind, and give discernment to those involved in her care. Holy Spirit, please give her discernment as how to respond to her daughter, as well as her SIL-and the rest of her family also. Lead her, guide her, and renew her spirit, Lord Jesus Christ, We ask all these things in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ.

Karri, may I suggest you call your Pastor's office, explain there is a family emergency and that you need to talk to him. This type of thing is what he is there for.

I can understand why you are feeling empty. Hang in there, your Abba really loves you. emoticon

We don't see SIL very often, usually only at holidays. But if she does give her books again, I will be researching them like crazy before letting her read them, if I don't just throw them out to begin with. I am very upset about the books she gave ODD after I discovered it.

I emailed our pastor. He's such a busy guy, that email will take a while. I'll probably try to catch him Sunday after service if I can.

Please say a prayer for me. I am feeling like an empty cup, with all that is going on. My therapist agreed with the analogy, and asked me to start doing some things for myself, because I can't help fill others if I am empty myself. Like putting the oxygen mask on yourself before you put one on your child in a plane. I feel hollow. I've been in so much pain; physical, mental, emotional... I can only pray that God sees me through this, because I am having such a hard time seeing a way through myself.

I strongly urge you to curtail all communication between your daughter and your SIL with no more gifts. If she knows you and your DH are Christians she knows she has no business teaching your daughter non Biblical principles. This is really hard but you must protect your daughter.
Stay strong.

I will email the pastor and see what he thinks.

We have been making her start going to the youth meetings after main service, she didn't want to for the longest, but now we are not giving her the choice. My gay sister in law is not helping. She gave her a book series for Christmas that had good reviews, and then when she was reading it she got all excited because the main character finally 'came out of the closet'. I wanted to strangle my sister in law. We had to take away her computer. I actually took away all electronics, including the kindles (even though we are the ones who put books on their kindles) because of both of their behavior of late. I love my sister in law, but I am so glad we don't see her often.

I don't want to talk to my MIL about it, she is one of the least emotional people I've ever met. It's almost like she doesn't have a very wide range of emotions. But, it's her daughter that is gay and she may have advice, though they did not know until she was an adult.

Praying for your family CheriAnn!!

My ODD has decided she is bi... she is not even 13 yet (will be in 2 months). I think it is just peer pressure, because she has chosen the wrong kinds of friends. She has had 2 'girlfriends' already. I found out about the 2nd because I had a dream she told me about it, and who it was, so I asked her (didn't tell her it was from a dream though). And I was right. I'm not sure how to go about this. I pray the Lord will help me and show me the way to changing her heart.

Praying you all have a blessed Easter Sunday! I know holidays can bring up family strife sometimes, praying there is none of that. I know members of my family are planning on seeing a fortune teller in a couple weeks. I am praying God makes the truth known about this-changes hearts to turn to Him. My sister's pain is real, she has not gotten over the death of her son, but praying God will reveal to her clearly that this is not something she should be doing, and leading others to join in on. They have made it clear my opinion is not wanted. I know my husband will be furious if he hears of all this. Then my gay nephew and his partner may be there. Hoping to just love them.

Cherri Ann, I did not realize how much the chemo affected me until I was off of it and well from the other things. My chemo was put into my bladder but my whole body was affected and I struggled with little energy.

Stay strong ladies because the King of kings loves you and is you daddy!

Praying that God walks you through this season. I struggled with my sense of worth when I was going through cancer treatment. Unable to do anything, didn't realize how much my self-esteem was tied to what I did. But He loves us where we are at, and our worth is NOT determined by what we do.
Wondering if the losses you just suffered are bringing the PTSD symptoms flare. All of this mess with your brother may be affecting you more deeply than you know.

Praying for you.

Hang in there Karri. God is in control. Remember one day at a time and sometimes it is one breath at a time.

Jane, I reread your encouragement, and wanted to thank you for it again.

I did get the location of my sister's grave to my nephew, thanks to my MIL, she loves digging up family history. She has not been able to locate where they buried my Mom, which is disturbing, but I'm trying to let that go. It does not matter, she is with Jesus, not here.

I do have another prayer request, for myself. My anxiety has been so high, I've also been having PTSD flashbacks and possible seizure, but the possible seizure could also be related to the PTSD instead, being blackout where my mind is trying to 'protect' me from resurfacing memories. Not sure. I'm still asking if that is even a possible thing, I've never heard of it before. But DH brought it up, so I'm asking around. I have several other health issues I'm dealing with and am dealing with feeling inadequate because I'm not able to keep up with the house work and such. I know God has put me in this season for a reason, and I need to trust Him, but I'm struggling with it.

Thank you so much Jane. And you are correct. I stayed away from the drama yesterday, and though I had a really bad tension headache, I felt better mentally for the break from it. I'm not going to let myself get entangled again. I'm going to lay it all at the feet of Jesus, because I know he knows what is best, not me.

Karri, you have moved away from that environment so allow God to deal with them in His time. You have worked too hard getting your physical and mental health together so allow others to give you a setback. Encourage Travis as you can and let the others deal with each other.

Remember you are His princes because you are a child of the King of kings!

Thank you guys so much.

Jane praying for you as you go through your procedure, I can't imagine two hours in a dental chair!

Please continue to keep my family in your prayers, especially my nephew, Travis. He is on his way driving to NM, but my brother has told him, through a message sent by my niece, that he is not welcome, and my brother will call the cops if he shows up. Won't tell anyone any details about the funeral arrangement. Won't even tell my nephew where his Mom is buried so he can pay his respects while in NM. Every time I think my brother can't stoop any lower, he surprises me again. I'm still feeling very numb, though that did spark a bit of anger. If I wasn't so numb, I imagine I'd be furious.

I got word late last night that Pop (my dad) passed away. My niece is taking it very hard. I don't know how I feel about it. He was not a nice man, but had his moments. I do have fond memories of him, so, he wasn't all bad. I'm not sure how I'm going to deal with this. Please keep my family in your prayers, especially my niece. Thanks.

CRISSYRR, will keep you my prayers.

Asking for prayers for myself as well. My health is all over the place and if it is not one thing it is another. None of my doctors are agreeing, and there is one doctor I just realized I forgot to keep in the loop.

Please pray for my soon to be 13 year old. She is still hinting that she thinks she is bi and is questioning. I don't always have the right answer, and DH doesn't always have the patience. She keeps just saying she doesn't understand and not clarifying what it is she does not understand. Her group of friends at school does not help.

Good morning folks, This is my first time posting here, thank you for having this topic/option! emoticon
I am currently asking the Lord to show me where an issue I am dealing with comes from. What I consider helpful words or instructional are being seen/heard as critical. This has become quite disturbing to me and I ask if you are inclined please pray for this to be clearly seen. It is something I do not pick up on so then it must be quite engrained in my default way of going about things. Thanks very much

Jane, praying for your cousin! So young! But the bullying and the depression and such seems to start so much younger these days too. I don't know if I've ever told you guys, but I have been in several mental hospitals myself. The saddest parts of the stays was when we would accidently be led through the halls and pass the kids. So young, and so much despair on their faces!! I was roomed with a young girl who was in high school but was 18, so she spent her days with the youth, but had to bunk with the adults. She had been trying to kill herself since she was about 10. She was the sweetest young woman. But had been through so much, and had so many scars, both visible and not.

Angela, praying for you and your son. That must be devastating to you. I actually read an article that most people who have a sex change regret it. I hope your son changes his mind.

We do go to church, it is a small one, but when Lily was a bit younger we went to a larger church, she was saved and baptized. But we feared she was too young to really understand. She used to want to be a missionary. It's breaking my heart to see her like this. I'm hoping it is just a faze. I did read several parts of 2 Corinthians to her and Romans. I don't think it sunk in. I'm thinking Bible reading will be added to our daily routine, even if I have to wake them earlier in order to do it.

Please pray for my youngest, Laurel, as well. She has a heart for the Lord. She just turned 11 and will be going to middle school next year and is so not emotionally prepared for it. She is kind and empathetic, shy and quiet, and nice to everyone. The bullying just recently started. She has anxiety and sees my therapist (a wonderful Christian woman) once a month. PTL our copay went down this year, so I can probably swing taking her maybe weekly or bi-weekly to see the therapist to help get ready for middle school once summer starts. The therapist called it 'middle school boot camp'. Laurel said to me recently that she wants to read the Bible and get to know the Lord more, but she can't seem to ever get around to it, or procrastinates or gets caught up in something else. She doesn't want to set a schedule to read the Bible, she wants to do it because she desires to do so. I think there is a battle going on here, and she needs all the prayers she can get.

Praying for all of you guys. I love you all and this team so much!! emoticon

It is so sad when people do not listen to what God says about sin especially churches who do not follow the Word. People want to skip Romans 1 which clearly speaks about the wrong type of life style.

I have not heard anything about the 10 year old girl.

Angela and Karri ~ I have several nephews that love the Lord, but have found churches that support their gay lifestyle. they are very active in this church.Their parents are devastated and have withdrawn from church and others as well. I am about the only one they discuss things with. So sad. Please pray for them as well. Praying for your daughter Karri and your son Angela. Also praying for you and your daughter Angela.

Jane~Psraying for the cousin who is in the hospital. Praying the same for her.

May God bring all these family members to a closer knowledge and faith in Him and reveal TRUTH to them as well as bring them peace.

Karri, I have many thoughts and have spent the last three years praying for my own son who announced he wanted a sex change. I understand the shock then the denial that this could be happening. Then the parental guilt of what did I do wrong? I do agree peer pressure plays a huge role in the decision process. I also will ask has she already accepted Christ? I will pray hard as I try to find more words and the words that are on my heart for you and your daughter.

Karri, has your daughter shown any interest in God's word? Would she be willing to read what the Bible says about what she is considering? Can you get her away from the group she is hanging out with? If she has a cell phone I suggest she only be allowed to make calls with it and not get into a bunch of junk that is available.

Yes, praying for her.

Prayers, Angela!! I hope things get better for you!

Please pray for my 12 year old. She has decided she is bisexual. I talked to her about it and she said she would not make such big decisions right now, but I could tell she was just trying to get me off her back. I know part of it is trying to fit in with the friends she has chosen. She's grasping in the dark and trying to make adult decisions when she is only a child. I've tried explaining this to her, we had a very long talk, but I don't know how much impact it had.

Without going into a great deal of detail, I ask prayers from my daughter and I. We need some divine intervention by this Friday to solve a situation that at this time I have no answers. I am still trying to gather participants for my case study. Despair, fear, and frustration have become our new emotions. I miss the joy, hope, and peace my daughter and I used to have.

Prayerfully yours,

Angela

Plan is to get to work, off at about noon so I can run up to hospital to visit Mom. They are running more tests. From there to Dan's Dads for supper and leaving from there to Bible study (weather has cancelled the last two dates). Pray for my Mom, my stress levels and BP.

Karri she looks adorable. Can she perhaps style it differently?

Jane- I hope your legs are looking better.

Made some cinnamon rolls this am, housework day and will get some other exercise in. Have to check in on Dan's Dad today as his sister is out of town.

DH's heart monitor was beeping early this morning. Don't know what that was about. He still has three weeks to wear it. He seems to be in AFIB most of the time. He is fighting early retirement, afraid of us not having enough money.

Jane, I have spoken with her teacher, who is very understanding as she has a DD with severe anxiety as well. I pray your legs are doing better today!!

We got haircuts yesterday and the stylist did not understand how short YDD wanted it cut (she is very soft spoken). I thought she understood, but she cut it about 3 inches shorter than YDD wanted it. Now she is terrified that a popular mean girl at school will think she is copying her and will pick on her. She looks adorable, I think. But now she is so anxious about Monday, and crying off and on.

Karri, have you talked to her teacher? There may be things going on in the class that may be triggering at least part of her anxiety.

Praying for her and you.

Jane

Please pray for my youngest daughter. She has anxiety and depression and is having a really hard time at school. It's breaking my heart. I feel so helpless. I have her in therapy, and we are doing self-care, but she is fragile and gets her feelings hurt so easily. I don't know how to change that. We have a therapy appointment next week, but she is struggling to make it through this week.

Thank you for your prayers.

My prayer is the chemo treatments go well and quickly with no more bladder infections or flu bouts to aggravate things so I heal fast.

We have tried family meetings to talk with my FIL about assisted living. He throws fits and refuses. Pray either he changes his mind or we figure something out. He is very narcissistic and really doesn't care how hard this is on his children.

I left a message for my therapist and she is seeing me today - her paperwork day, she does not normally see people on. She is the best. I will probably reach out in some way, if only to say that I forgive him. I'm not sure where to go and where to draw the boundary of that communication though.

Jane, I'm so glad you are doing better, how scary! Will be praying for your health and wisdom for your doctors. emoticon

I am doing okay. With all the things that has been going on, the flu, infection in the bladder and chemo in the bladder something triggered my potassium levels out of whack. They are not supposed to be above 5.2 and Monday morning the blood draw showed 6.5 so when I went to the doctor another draw was done and it was 7.5 so I was sent to the emergency room of the hospital and admitted to ICU. The numbers came down and I was put in a regular room until the numbers came down to 4.6 which is very acceptable.

Some of the problems I had last week may have been related to the potassium being high. I knew I was seeing the doctor on Monday so waited which I know now was the wrong thing to do.

I will try to keep you all posted but not doing much else.

Jane

I am praying for you both. Personally I would reach out to my Dad in some way. I would not want to live with regrets that I hadn't. But that is me, you must make your own call. I don't know if that would cause havoc with your PTSD. I think it's wise to talk to your counselor about this.

Jane- how scary. I hope you are doing much better today.

I am meeting friends who no longer attend our church. Pray that I hold strong and don't let it become a gripe session about the church.

Monday morning I woke up early, went and had lab work done and then later went to the cancer doctor. When I got there I had another blood draw which was sent to check my potassium level because the early one was 6.5. The second draw came back at 7.5 so I was sent to the ER at Guam Memorial Hospital and admitted. Potassium should not be above 5.2 and it took some time to get it down. I came home this afternoon late and must get some appointment for follow up tomorrow, which will be Friday.

I am sending this to a few people and then going to bed. I am okay but tired.


Karri, I suggest you e-mail your Pop, tell him that you love him and wish him well. I do not think you will regret doing that five years from now. You may also let him know you have been praying for him and still are. If he is a sick as you understand there probably will not be a response which would be fine but you have still reached out to him.

Praying for you Jane!

Asking for prayers for guidance for myself. My father (Pop) is dying, and does not have much longer. My brother emailed me one sentence and that was it. I am at a loss as to what to do. He could be a very kind man, but he cruel and abusive as well. I had to cut him out of my life almost 10 years ago. I still pray for his salvation, and my siblings as well. I do not know what to do. Do I call him, or message him? Or do I leave well enough alone? I have been praying over what to do and am going to call and leave a message for my Christian therapist today. I see her next week, but who knows if it will be too late by then.

Lord Jesus, we bring Jane before you. We ask that you would heal her of both her flu and this cancer as well. Bring her thru this with as few aftereffects as possible. Bring complete healing Lord. We ask this in your holy name Lord Jesus, our healer and strength.
