  1. I will pray. Dear Jesus,please be with this mom. Give her assurance that even though her children seem beyond her reach, they are not beyond yours. Remind her that you created each one and have not taken your eye off them for one minute. May your spirit pray with her spirit when she doesn’t know what to pray. Thank you for loving her and her family.

    1. At a loss of how to even pray any more. I’m worn, weak and weary. It’s been one thing after another with my three adult children since my oldest was about 14 (now 34). We have struggles with our 29 year old since she was about 9 and our youngest is 21 has just moved back in with us. I feel like I just can’t do this, any longer.

  2. Thank you for sharing and encouraging! Our 18-year old daughter left three weeks ago and broke our hearts. Trying to Chang my view…she is His daughter, let Him deal with her. So. Hard. I would SO appreciate your prayers for her repentance!

    1. Pray, pray, pray, Monica! Pray for correction, for direction, for protection. God is able!! He sees your pain, and hers. You are near to God’s heart today. ((hugs)) Heidi

  3. Thank you for this. It’s an old post but timely for us. My 15 year old daughter is now an atheist, and mentally disturbed, and my other daughters have severe anxiety with depression. The atmosphere in our home is extremely difficult and we have been through difficult circumstance after difficult circumstance for 10 years now. I keep thinking, if only we had done everything differently, they would be stable, with longtime friends, like all these other kids that lived in the same place all their lives and didn’t go through any major crises. I just want to quit as I see my younger two children poisoned by the older two and prematurely following their example.
