Please Pray For My Daughter

Recommended Posts

Anyone that is still awake please pray for my daughter tonight. She got mad at me and said she's moving out, "you're dead to me", etc. a little while ago and took a bunch of her stuff and said she was going to her dad's. My mom came over and talked her into going to her house first to talk. Please first pray she doesn't make the hour plus drive to her dad's house at this hour, mad at me, not a safe situation.

She turned 18 last month and leaves for college in the fall. She has a horrible temper. She doesn't get it from me or her father, my father had a hair-trigger temper and it's like living with him again. I walk on eggshells around her so I don't upset her lately. I'm so anxious and edgy when it's time for her to come home from school or work I want to run away.

The fight was same as every other, her attitude and way she talks to me, cusses when she's talking to me, and thinks we are equals.

Please just pray for us tonight.

Thank you in advance.

When I was going through a very hard time with my son, The devil was working overtime it seemed. I prayed for God to give me wisdom, more love for my son, to work in my son's life, and to straighten out our relationship. My son and I are getting along great today, he has a sweet fiance(our pastors daughter) and a very good job. Best of all, he is in church and serving the Lord. God answers prayer. Praying for you and your daughter.

kids know all they have to do is call 911 if you touch them now.

That is especially true at her age. Even though she is not quite 18, she is close enough to being one that the government would not allow you to discipline her as you would like or as she needs. 

 

Your situation being what it is, you have a harder row to hoe than others on here.  But remember: God is merciful, and He loves her more than you do (imagine that!  That thought just fills me with awe!) - and wants her surrendered to Him more than you do.  Keep praying for her, keep loving her, and keep standing firm on biblical principle.  The Holy Spirit can and will work. And we will be praying that she surrenders.

It's also very hard when parents are divorced.  The child has an escape route.  I always had prOBlems with my ex husband, b/c I had to be the disciplinarian.   My ex husband is emotionally abusive to my son and his sister (from his first marriage) but he has never laid a hand on him.  He only did that with me and his former wife.  I am actually thankful that he has never laid a hand on either of his children.  Emotional abuse is enough.

Thankfully, in the state of OH, there is no law against corporal punishment with children.  Many people think there is.

she is 18.

Thanks for the prayers everyone!

 

Doncha know, that the smartest person in the world is an 18 year old Miss Daisy?   :scratchchin: This was a very difficult age for my son.  Thankfully, he has matured.  I will continue to pray for the situation, as I know how difficult this is for you.  I do believe she will grow out of it, though.  She is in the hands of God.  Praise the Lord!

As sad and hard as it can be, sometimes the best thing to do is let them go.

 

We have three children and as most here know, one son who has been rebellious from back when he was in diapers. The older he got, the worse he got and the more prOBlems. When he turned 18 we decided not to try and fight his rebellion and try to keep him at home. On his 18th birthday he boarded a bus for Florida where he's been ever since. We pray for him and await the day when he opens his heart to the Lord.

 

When he moved out so much pressure and weight went with him. While I hated to see him go as he did, after he left the entire atmosphere in our house was refreshed, everyone was more relaxed, there was so much peace and so many more smiles, good conversations.

I agree, John.  They are creatures or children of God.  We are only instruments in their lives.  I give my son to God, daily.  He loves the fellowship with the brothers and sisters in my church, but as far as going to church?  He hasn't been to church in a few years.  He is also kind of like me.  I have stated that I hated church growing up in the RCC.  I stopped going in the 9th grade.  My ex husband did the same thing.  When it came to salvation, because I have an analytical mind, like my ex husband, my son has that same mind.  I had to have to Bible proven to me in order to be saved.  It took from 1999 to 2003 for me to get saved.  I needed the head knowledge before my heart was intact.  It will take our children time to grow.  As painful as it is, we need to let the Holy Spirit work in their lives.  Thankfully, my son always brings up spiritual matters.  I wait for that door to open, then I plant the seeds.  That and constant prayer is what works best for me.

Let her go if she wishes, I know it is hard too. My two older kids from my frist marrige have not talk to me in over a year. They have anger in their hearts. The Lord will be done. Live your life, the Lord know our hearts,she or they will come back someday. This is the day that the Lord has made, let us be happy and glad in it. They are His...  :)

      Please pray for my mother who is 63 and having a total knee replacement  done Wed. morning. She has a blood clottiing issue that complicates it also. I'm just very nervous about this surgery in general. Afraid they'll find something like cancer in her or something. She's my best  friend forever. I'll be with her during her hospital stay and I will stay at her house a few weeks while she's in recovery. She won't be able to drive for 6 weeks. PLease pray on Wed. morning.

      Please say a prayer for me. I live with chronic pain in my back, hips and feet. My hips have been hurting exceedingly so the last few days and it really hits when I lay down at night for bed like I am now. I have fibromyalgia and it feels like someone has thrown me down a couple flights of concrete steps. I can't lay on my sides at all.

      Please pray for 9 year old girl named London who was just taken to  E.R. because (supposedly, heard from neighbors) she tried to kill herself because her mom's boyfriend has been beating her. She called and told her grandma who called cops. Mother didn't even go with daughter to E.R.
      I just can't fathom this type of stuff. Pray for child and that justice will be done for her if needed.

      Please pray for my grandma Dorothy who's been an amputee for 5 years from bone cancer. She's in hospital now for bladder infection and they're running other tests. Also requesting prayer for my mom and my aunts who have been able to keep my grandma in her own home for last 5 years but my grandma is now older, weaker, sicker, and her other leg's knee is giving out. She's 85ish. My grandma needs to accept that she may no longer be able to stay in her own home. Her doorways are too narrow for her wheelchair for starters. My mom and my aunts are all in their 60's now and have health prOBlems of their own and would unable to care for her in their home also. My mom's home's doorways are too narrow for a wheelchair also. I'm not any help because of a lot of back prOBlems. My grandma has also gained a lot of weight since being in a wheelchair which compounds the prOBlem of moving and lifting her. She has stated she wants to make it until her last granddaughter's wedding, in two weeks. Then I feel she's just going to give up. She is saved and a Christian. If she stays in hospital for another day and half Medicare would pay for nursing home for her to recuperate a few weeks before more decisions are made. But she is very strong-willed and wouldn't go without a lot of prayer! I know this is long and I've asked for prayer for her before. Thank you!
       
      Last time she was in hospital and went to nursing home for a few weeks she was very glad she did.

      I'm asking for prayer for me and my 17 yr. old daughter. Sometimes I don't think I can take another day. I just take each day as best I can and pray for strength and guidance.
