Prayer for strength & guidance for my son & our family

by Denise

My son just joined the military, which was a blessing with his way of thinking he would have been going down the wrong path.

336x280:

He made it, so we thought, only to get a call that on day one when it was time for boot camp, he quit, said if they didn't let him out he would harm himself. Needless to say, he is being evaluated and may more than likely be sent home, since he's already signed the release papers. Sadly, my son has always quit when challenges arose, and I can't understand why.

He knows the Lord which I'm so grateful for, but fail to see his power. I have a smaller child at home and his father and I are faced with, should we allow him to come home or not, since he has a problem with authority and being disrespectful towards me when my husband is not around. We fear the way he thinks will rub off on his little brother that cherishes the ground he walks on. I fear he will be in the streets but my husband says he may have to fall flat on his face in order to "get it".

As a mother, I'm struggling with that. It took so much to get him there, a lot was sacrificed, but he says its all about him and that his decision only affects him.

Please pray my son's strength and guidance, and for my family and I for direction. I continue to pray for God's will to be done, yet its so hard and I feel like my heart has been torn apart, and I don't understand.

Denise,
Be sure that the good Lord has heard your plea for guidance for your son. Remember that God's timing is perfect and his plan has been set in motion a very long time ago ... even though he does not let us in on the plan. Keep the faith, and keep praying. God will not let you down. Sometimes children need to get lost to find their way and ask for God's protection for your child.
