1  Prayer / Prayer Requests / Re: My Son on: January 29, 2010, 09:53:20 AM
Thanks Pastor Roger.  I have been really busy enjoying what I though was a normal family life.  Thank you so much for keeping my family in your prayers.  I thought everything was going so good and then BAM - But God can take care of this for me and my son - I KNOW HE CAN!!!

I have a special request.  Please pray for Mitchell.  I found a paper this morning he has written where he is having his "homosexual" feelings again for a guy at school named Blake.  He put in there that he has tried to do what everyone says and have feelings like a normal boy for a girl, but he just can't.  He will not talk to me or anyone else about it because he is scared of being judged.  He uses Kristen "his friend" as a front.  Please pray for him.  His self-esteem is beginning to lower again and he is feeling down on himself like he was before.  Please ask everyone you know to keep him in their prayers (without mentioning details).  Thanks!!

Hello everyone!  It has been a while since I have been on.  I have been busy with moving, selling my house and getting settled.  My son seems to be doing pretty good.  I would ask that you please remember him the weekend of the 20th - 22nd.  He will be going to our church's youth retreat.  Please pray that God will move on him and he will come home a strong man in Christ.  I still have questions and every once in a while doubt creeps in.  Please pray for me to hold strong to my faith that God has delivered him from his homosexual feelings and that he is the man that God created him to be.  We are both doing better, but there is still that fear of a mother that gets the best of me.  Please pray that God will send me the comfort I need in knowing that he is moving in this situation and he has it under control AT ALL TIMES. 
I hope you all are doing good!  I am still praying for all of you as I think of you often.

Good morning!  Just wanted to give an update about my son.  Everything seemsto be going good.  He has decided to stay in 11th grade this year and graduate next year.  The principal has agreed to schedule his classes before lunch next year so he can leave early and go take classes at Tech in the afternoon.  That way he will be able to qualify for all of his scholarships.  If he graduates this year, he will be knocked out of some of them.

They have had this thing at school this week called War of Special Forces.  It is a teenage program that comes to the school every four years.  And I am thankful that it came while Mitchell was there.  He has really enjoyed it.  They meet at the church of the school every evening at about 6:00 and stay until about 9:00 doing different activities devotions and counseling.

When I got home Thursday, he said that he wanted to talk with me and his dad and show us something.  He said that he had been going to counseling and his counselor had really been helping him.  He showed us where he had put a tracking/blocking program on the computer and let me set the password so he wouldn't know what it was.  He said that two of his friends in 7th grade had gotten him into things on the computer he shouldn't have been.  And he was wanting to put a little trust back into our relationship with each other.  He said that he wanted to be able to start trusting us again and us start trusting him again.  He said it was something he was working through with counseling, his family and God.  I WAS SO TOUCHED!!!! 

Please pray that he continues to grow in his spirituality.  I feel like this is a really good step in the right direction and I am finally getting my son back.  Please keep my family in your prayers.

Please be praying for Mitchell.  He came home today and said that he wants to graduate this year instead of next year.  I do not understand what happened and why he has made this decision.  Please pray that it is part of God's plan for him, if he does decide to do this.  We are supposed to have a family meeting when I get home from work today (which will be in like 30 minutes).  Please pray that God will move him in the right direction

Hey everybody!!!  If all goes well, we close on the house we are selling on Thursday, July 30th.  Then I will be back down to only one house to take care of.  Mitchell still seems to be doing good and is ready to start back to school at his private christian school again this year.  He said that he really loves it there.

I don't know whether you remember me saying anything to you about my brother's daughter who claims to be a lesbian and is in it really deep, but God is starting to move on her.  She is starting to want to spend time with family and, I believe, there may be a guy she is interested in.  She does not have all the pictures of girls being sexual on her myspace page any more.  She still has orientation as lesbian but she is starting to come to church some now.  Please keep her in your prayers and my brother.   God is moving in my family in a great way, and I praise him everyday for that.

I hope all of you are doing good.  I consider you all my prayer warriors and friends, even though we have never met.  May God bless each of you!!!

Hello everyone!  It has been a while since I have been able to get on, but I have been thinking about and praying for all of you! 

Hopefully, the house we are trying to sell will close on July 30th.  Then I will be back down to just one house, which will be a blessing!   Mitchell seems to be doing good.  He seems a lot happier than he was this time last year, and him and his dad seem to be getting a long a little better. 

Please continue to pray for my husband that he will become the christian that he used to be, and continue to pray for Mitchell that he will stay strong and that his self esteem will continue to rise until he becomes the man that God wants him to be. 

Thank all of you for the prayers that you have been praying for me and my family.  They are working, so please keep them coming.  God bless each of you and you will always be in my prayers!!!!

Hello everyone!  It has been a while since I have been on.  I hope everyone is doing great!!!

Mitchell seems to be doing good; he took himself out of therapy.  He told his therapist that he didn't have anything else he needed to work through but he seems content.  He just needs help with his self esteem.  It is still low but I am still praying.

I found out last week that my sister will not be needing to move into my old house that my husband and I own; so we are putting it up for sale.  Please pray that we will be able to sell it.  This would help out greatly financially as Mitchell's school and the new house have us financially strained.  However, it is worth it to see him happier.

My husband is still having issues with the "Jesus thing" as he puts it.  Please keep him in your prayers.

Thank you all for your prayers.  When you pray, please pray for my husband.  He used to be such a devoted christian but has strayed away, further than I would like him to be.  Please pray that God will touch his heart and bring him back where he needs to be.  He has grown so cold against church.  I really need your prayers when it comes to this.  It makes Mitchell mad at his dad and it hurts me.  Please pray that my husband's attitude will change and peace will come between my entire family.  I know this plays a big part in the problems that Mitchell is having, and it is putting a strain on our marriage and family life.  Please pray for God to turn this situation around.  It has taken me a long time to accept that my husband is not the man he used to be.  And now that I have, I need prayer warriors to join me in praying for him to make his way back.

Hello Everyone!  I know it has been a while since I've been on, but moving, working and ball has kept me busy. 

Everything really seems to be going pretty good.  Mitchell still seems happy. 

However, the devil is really fighting me this week.  It seems that things are going so good, he has to step in and stir the pot.  I know it is the devil.  He keeps throwing things out here and there to make me doubt what God has done in Mitchell's life.   The mother in me worries anyway but it just seems like this week is really tough.  Please pray for God's guidance for me.  We have come so far.  Please pray that God will help me and give me the strength to hold on and accept all that he has done and not to question or worry.  Just accept and believe. 

This time of year is hard for me since it is Mother's Day, Father's Day, the anniversary of my mother's death and my father's birthday.  It will be hard for me all the way through September (which is the anniversary of my father's death) and of course then the holidays that you always spend with family starts.  I miss them so much and I miss being able to go to them for their advice and guidance.  They were such strong christians.  To have lost them at such an early age hurts.  They were my best prayer warriors, counselors, advisors and shoulder to cry on. 

I really need your prayers right now.  Mitchell and I both do.  Please pray that God will send him a "girlfriend" that he can spend time with and talk to.  He says that he feels there is no one out there who would want him as a "boyfriend".  Please pray that God will send the right one along to boost his self esteem.  It is so hard watching him be so down on himself at times.  He feels that he is an awkward, nerdy, geek that girls only want as friends.  He is such a totally awesome young man. 

Sorry to have burdened all of you with this but I just feel a little down and depressed right now and could really use some encouragement.

Thanks everybody!

Hey everyone!!  I know it has been a while since I was on, but Mitch has been keeping me busy with baseball practice and games, but he seems to be enjoying it.

I have a prayer request that I would like for you to pray about.  Mitchell went to our church youth camp last year, which he loved.  That is where he started on the right path to Jesus Christ and has been doing great so far.  Our church camp this year will be the week of, I believe, June 13-18.  Mitchell had been talking since last year about how he was looking forward to going back to camp this year.  Last week, he stated that he did not think he was going to go this year.  He really needs to go.  This is so uplifting and encouraging for the youth.  They get to spend time with people their own age worshipping God and enjoying so many blessings.   Please pray that he will decide to go.  I know it would help him stay strong.
 
We also have a youth day for our church statewide on April 25th.  As far as I know, he is going to that.  Please pray that God will bless him there and place the longing in his heart to go to camp.  I know camp did so much for him last year.  Pray that his friends from camp last year that will be there will be able to convince him to go to camp with them.

Thanks everyone!!!!

Thought I would let you know that Mitchell signed up for baseball at school.  He said he is really loving it.  He plays his first game tonight.  I won't get to see it because it is out of town and I had to work, but I know he will have fun!  I am hoping that this will also bring him and his dad closer.  His dad told him that he would get out and practice with him throwing, batting and catching pop-ups.  Please pray that Mitchell will do good and have fun!  He is really excited.  This has him talking about signing up for soccer.  And he really seems to be getting along with the other guys on the team, which, to me, is a good thing.  I will keep you updated as to how he does on the team.  But he really seems to be excited.

Sorry it has been a while, but I hope all is going well for all of you. 

Everything here is still going.  It seems the more I praise and thank God for all that is going so right in Mitchell's life, the more I get knocked down.  The devil is fighting so hard right now.  Mitchell seems to have regressed some in his self-esteem issues. I'm not sure what happened.  He had one more therapy session left, but the therapist feels he needs to keep coming right now; she said that "he is still doing good but is having a hard time right now".  I am not sure what that means.  I feel it has a lot to do with his dad.  He feels his dad is hard on him and doesn't like him.  That he is not the son his dad wanted.  His dad just wants him to learn responsibility.  He takes him out to work with him when he goes to pull his bread up (he's a sara lee breadman).  And he is trying to teach Mitch the fast, right way to do it, and Mitch takes it as him critizing.  Mitchell tried to impress him by doing something with the church for the school he goes to, and feels his dad didn't approve of that either.  I don't know.  I have gotten to where I can cry every night.  I have been up so high now with everything going good and giving God praise, and I know it is just the devil trying to knock me down.

Mitchell is feeling low and confused. Pray that he will realize the MAN God made him to be and that there is a girl out there somewhere made just for him.  He feels no girl wants him and thus brings up the old feelings of being homosexual.  He knows deep in his hear that is not true, but the devil can fight so hard sometimes, especially when you are down on yourself.

Please pray for Mitchell and me.  We both need strength right now.

I hope you all know that I am praying for each of you.  You are my prayer warriors that I lean on in times of need.  I appreciate y'all more that words can say.  Thank you for all the prayers and advice.

Well, Mitchell went to court yesterday, and his ticket got dropped because the lady in the other car did not show up.  At least he didn't have to pay a fine or lose any points off his license.  Now we just have to wait to see how much her attorney will be asking for.  The insurance company had to total my car because they said it would cost more to fix than what it is worth.  I do not understand how, if she was going less than 30 miles per hour, she could do over $8,000 damage to my Toyota Highlander.  But I have given to God to handle.

Mitchell and McKayla are not together right now.  They decided that since they were in different towns, to break up.  Mitchell, of course, blames himself, that he is not socially acceptable and overweight and ugly.  Of course, none of this is true, but his self confidence is still low.  Please pray for him.  They really do like each other, and if it is meant for them to date each other for now, then God will work it out.  They are both devoted christians, but I believe her parents are really strict and wouldn't allow her to talk on the phone or computer much, which put a damper on their relationship.  Please pray that God will move in this situation for what he wants and what he knows is best.  Mitchell is a little down, but my niece is going to spend the day with him tomorrow and that usually cheers him up.  She is his cousin and youth minister, and he talks to her when he will not talk to anyone else.  Thanks for the prayers, please keep them coming!!!

Mitchell is still doing really good.  The accident he had is causing us some difficulty, but we are doing good.  The lady who hit him has decided she needs a lawyer.  You know how that goes.  Mitchell did pull out in front of her, but she was going too fast.  However, the city policeman did not question her because she called her "head highway patrol friend" to the scene to stand with her.  Therefore, they did not question her at all.  It was a 35 mile an hour speed zone.  She claims she slammed on her brakes and tried to stop.  If she had been going full speed, I would hate to see what she would have done to my car.  I have a Toyota Highlander SUV.  It is a pretty good size heavy made SUV.  She completely spun it and had it heading in the opposite direction and bend the tire completely sideways.  She had to be going pretty fast.  She was fine when she left the scene but has since went the the ER and hired an attorney.  Please pray that God will move in this situation.  Mitchell is my son, but she was in the wrong too, just not punished as he was.  Pray that God will handle this situation. 

Mitchell and McKayla are still talking, and he is very happy.  He said that he could not believe that a girl that pretty would ever like him.  Please pray that this continues.  He is still making male friends at school and seems to be heading in the right direction.  Thanks for all the prayers.
