Prayer for my son

by Barbara
(New York )

My extremely handsome, intelligent teenage son is severely depressed. He comes home from school and locks himself in his room. He has no friends. I hear him crying at times. He is quiet and will not talk to me.

336x280:

He refuses concealing. This is a result of witnessing a nasty divorce at the age of 7, abandoned by his father, now within 5 months, he lost his grandmother, our home to fire from hurricane sandy, his brother (only friend) to a girl.

He feels alone and says he has nothing. Lord, where are you? Where is your love and mercy for my most innocent son? What has happened to my family? We are practically homeless. Will my son be driven to suicide? I beg you for mercy and guidance. Please don't take my son from me. Let him know your love. Something....anything for the good of him. Amen

I will say a prayer tonight for you and your son. I hear your heart breaking too. God bless x

he is not alone
by: Shannon

I have walked the road of deep depression, starting at age 11, all the way through my current 32nd yr of life. I am from NJ- I imagine you may be as well. Your son is in my heart tonight. He is in pain, but there is a small, tiny ember of light and hope inside, and that is the Lord. I pray he can see it and allow those who love him to help it grow to a small flame.
I will tell you this: what saved me from the brink of death was service to others. I worked with special needs children and the homeless and did little volunteer things- it changes you. Reverses the pain, if only for a moment. That is my suggestion. I will pray for him tonight, and you as well. You are a beautiful, wonderful mother.

All Will Be Okay

I, a 13 year old girl, know what it is like to be depressed. Coming from a kid, just be there for your son, and have the relationship close enough so that he will be comfortable with opening up - when his heart feels it is right. I will have you and your son in my prayers tonight.

I pray for you and your son...

I pray for you and your son. I pray God will inspire you and strengthen you to guide him. I pray that your son in turn will feel your love and feel God's loving comfort. Everything will be okay, have faith and it will be all right. Your son will do many wonderful things in the future, just so long as you never give up. :)

I am praying for you

Standing on God's word that your son will not die but will live and declare the works of the Lord, and that God's plan and thoughts toward him are always for good!! Praying for godly friendships and restoration of all that has been stolen.

Don't give up on your son, teenagers are difficult at the best of times and you and your family have had a lot of knocks!

Keep praying and have faith in God and ask for his help every day. Little by little things will get better . Try and get your son to talk to you or someone else, he is experiencing sorrow and despair and needs help if not from you an experienced counsellor. I will pray for you, please do not give up. I have had sorrow from my children and their lack of faith especially when my son's marriage broke up.

Love and blessings on you all

I shall pray for you, your son, your family. I am going through the same thing with both of my teenage boys' and it tears my heart in two. There has been major changes in our lives; changes that I thought would be best for our family, which actually is separating and dividing my family. There are days that I want to simply give up but that would be giving into the devil and that I will Not do; I will Not deapair for I continue to have hope, I will Not doubt for I continue to have faith, faith in Our Lord, Jesus Christ. So my friend continue to have faith, and hope for He is listening.
