A prayer request for strength and pereseverance

I'm going through a very tough time with my parents at the moment. I am almost out of high school, and have recently found the lord through an amazing community of friends in my area. However, my parents, especially my father, are completely atheist. I admit, I may be rude sometimes, I may not appreciate all they do for me, but I still do jobs, I still get good grades, I still make them proud. Life at home is tough right now, and I seem to be constantly in trouble, with serious consequences.


I ask for prayer for strength and perseverance, and also that my parents hearts are softened, and they come to accept that i am a better person with Jesus in my life. I pray that God can help me with his unfailing love, and aid me in this tough time.

Thanks for reading, this is my first post. Normally i try to manage through but, being at Christmas time, I am finding it really tough. Thank you, and bless you all.

The situation you are in is extremely tough. Thank GOD you found the LORD! Isn't he incredible! He truly is! Remember, as a Christian, we go through trials that will test our faith in the Lord, I personally suffer with anxiety and OCD, the amount of times I have almost given up only to be picked up by God once again and be redeemed. Maybe your trial is to help your parents find our one and only Savior Jesus Christ. Always remember though, don't push it upon your parents, God and Jesus never once did that, you cannot force anyone to be a christian, that is why God and Jesus allow people to have free will, cause they are amazing and gracious and kind, maybe slowly tell them about all the amazing things Jesus Christ has done for you, and it could open their eyes. My favorite prayer to always remember when times are tough is Luke 17:6, "If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this tree, be uprooted and plant into the see, and it will obey you." That is the power of GOD! So believe me, Jesus and God can definitely unharden the hearts of your parents, it has to be truly up to them to accept Jesus though! I hope all goes well in journey though,

GOD BLESS :)

High School is a really hard time for anyone.
Just have a little faith. Your parents may not believe in God but they believe in you! So do not try to make your parents believe buy just Love all that you can with all your heart. Sit down talk to your parents. In life you will meet plenty of people who do not see your line of reasoning. This is a lesson God tries to teach everyone! I am not trying to be preachy! I have been there.. I tried so hard to move as far away from my parents as I could! But when my dad died I could not get close enough.

I hope I could help in some way. Cause it would really be a good medicine for me right now too

I will pray for you.
