Could you guys put my dad on your prayer lists? He's a school psychologist, and lost his job two years ago, and ever since has been suffering from severe depression. It's really hard on my whole family, because our financial situation just continues to decline, and although he's trying really hard to find a job, it just seems like nothing's going to materialize.

Please put my dad in your thoughts, sometimes I get worried that the depression is going to push him over the edge, and he'll do something drastic...

PM me if you want to talk...

Of course. I sincerely hope your father recovers from his distress and finds a way to support your family. You and he will be in my prayers.

Edit: I also have a prayer request.
There is a guy I recently met named Jason who got in some trouble. Pray he doesn't commit suicide..

Some of you know that my mother has a series of accidents and illnesses since last November. She has now had another fall. She is injured, shocked, and depressed.

Your Wiccan ally asks you for your prayers for her please.

Blessed be.

Thanks, Linny.

I keep all the prayer requests in my thoughts too. It's very comforting to know that other people care, and share.

I will keep you all in my heart and in my thoughts.

I have a request to add for myself. Two months ago I began having difficulty sleeping, though I did not know why, and a month ago I was finding it impossible for me to sit through my summer classes without severe pain. Eventually, it got to the point where I could not stand up after sitting for less than an hour. Since then I have gone to a doctor, who x-rayed my back and discovered that, in addition to mild scoliosis, I have damage around a disc in my lower back. I begin physical therapy monday. Hopefully that will help, if not I have been told that I will eventually require surgery and I'm scared.

I hope that everything works out for those who have already posted here, and I hope that it helps to know that there are many many people who care about them. If anyone ever needs to talk, PM me.

Hi,
I just wanted to thank everyone for their kindness, and to let you know that my father just started a new job today! He is happy and smiling for the first time in almost two years.

Thank you for your thoughts and encouragement.

*sigh* ok, well, here's the story:

There's this girl at school, whose locker was right next to mine last year, so I got to know her a little. She's a really nice girl, but she hangs out with the wrong crowds, and I KNOW she has more potential than that...I wont go into specifics, but you get the picture. She was always telling me about how she had these boy friends that are like 4-5 years older than her. I always shook my head because I KNEW *why* her boyfriends were always that age...because they just wanted to get it on... Well, last friday, the whole school was murmuring with rumors that she was pregnant--and that her mom was making her get an abortion. I heard this at the end of the day, so I didnt get a chance to talk to her.

Today after one of our classes, I pulled her aside in the hall and talked to her. My main concern was the baby--abortion to me is flat down murder. You are killing a helpless, innocent baby. Well anyways, she always trusted me, so she talked to me about it, with tears running down her cheeks. She had been raped. She got an abortion last Thursday. She was going to have a court hearing in a few weeks to get the guy in jail. I was speechless, and my throat felt all dry. So I just gave her a hug and told her if she needed anything, I was here.

I would like all of you to please pray for her, and especially for the lost baby.

My many good wishes to all those suffering, and their friends and relatives.

I would like to add a request for Arra's family. As you all know, today is her birthday, and it must be terribly difficult for them. Please give a thought to them tonight.

Thank you all, and Peace be with you.

Wow. You just don't seem to realise what's going on around you do you? It's great to have something like this. I will always remeber all of you in my prayers. Prayer is so amazing! It makes me jump for joy.
I was going to write something and then I wasn't , Now I feel I should. Bear with me here.
My dad ran away from home when I was 4. I never really remember him before that - he used to shout at me al ot, and now I see him as very depressed back then. For ten years afeter that, the courts and social workers pleged us, and lastJuly we had to leave our home in the country. we live in the town now. Ok, here's th e thing - ever since last Christmas I've gotten really depressed. You know it was Christmas, and my first christmas away from the community I loved. Also my sister had been ill for 2 years now, and was in hospital. Dad decided he doesn't want anything to do with me anymore, and I've tried so hard to get him to talk to me but he won't. I praise God though that I don't hate him. basically what i'm trying to say here is that, please please pray that God will give me the strength to control myself and I won't do anything stupid. It was so hard to say that, but I'm glad I did...thanks. And sorry.

And if anyone wants to talk like anytime I'm ALWAYS here. I love to listen. I would be overjoyed. Some of your stories have really touched me - see how God can work through tradgedy? What an awesome God! love you all.

Thanks Linarien *big hug back* thanks a lot. But I'm sorry if I seemed so self obessed! I went of and thought 'oh no!' You see, I forgot to say please pray for my father, and my family that they'll be loving and forgiving and not bitter.

Oh and I also forgot to say Linarien, about that girl. I sent you a PM about her but I don't think you got it - it was just to say I'm praying for her constantly, and I hope she and everything else is OK. And you!!

I have another prayer request. My grandmother has lost the will to live and is dying. My whole family is taking this pretty hard, especially my dad. Please keep her and my family in your prayers.

This one my sound silly but its really serious to me. See I've been riding horses for about 4 years now and I really want/need a horse and I've been looking at some really great ones. The only problem is the money and my parents. I don't REALLY think that they totally understand why I want/need a horse soo bad. I you guys could just pray that everything works out for the best, in God's time. Thanks []
