The devil has my 15 year old son believing that he is homosexual. I have been praying for God to help him, but the devil has such a stronghold on him, that it seems my prayers are going no further than the ceiling. I have told God that this is his battle, as I can not do this on my own. Please help me pray that God will be there with my son no matter where he goes. Pray that when he is on the internet, God will be there making him feel uncomfortable; when he is with friends who are bad influences, God will be there making him feel uncomfortable; when he is doing anything that is not pleasing to God, please help me pray that God will be right there beside him, making him uncomfortable until he has to ask God to help him. He needs God in his life. He will tell you that homosexuality is wrong, and he knows that. but he has a friend who has convinced him that he will be better off with a guy. Please help me pray for God to take complete control o!f this situation and that I have enough strength to turn it over to him completely.

The director of the youth camp called last night and said that he had an available bed for my son.  My son is still agreeing to go to church camp the week of July 21st.  Please pray for him that week that God will pour his spirit out on him like never before and bless him and help him to realize the man that God wants him to be.  Please, please continue to pray for him.

My son is home from camp, and he said he enjoyed it.  He would not ask the girl to the banquet, he said he would rather be friends.  He still lacks self confidence in himself as a man.  Please continue to pray for him.  He is better, but still a little confused.  Pray that God will continue to work in him to bring him completely into the person he is to be.  My heart aches a little, but I know God is working, and it is not something that happens overnight.  Please pray for us. 

Thank you so much for such awesome encouraging words.  My son is trying really hard.  The devil is tempting him, and he said that he knows the devil is, and he is trying to resist.   Pray that he will be able to stand strong.  He wants to help his friend who is in the same situation he was.  Please pray that he will be able to help him without letting his friend bring him down. I am so proud of the progress he is making, and I pray that he will continue to grow strong and stay on the path which God has put him on.  I pray that christian friends will enter his life to lift his spirits and help bring him closer and stronger relationship with God.

Please pray for my son.  It seems he has lost several of his friends, more than the one.  It is discouraging him, and I don't want him to feel that he has to go back into his old life to get friends.  Please pray that he will stay strong and that he will constantly feel God with him, guiding him.  He is an awesome young man.  Please continue praying for him that he will stay on the right path and follow God's leading in his life.  Pray for him to stay happy and carefree.  Please!!!!

My son wants to go to counseling for things he says have happened in his past that he needs to talk to someone about.  Please pray that I am able to find the right counselor to help him.  I want one who will guide him, not only in his personal life, but in his spiritual life also.  I have one that I am thinking about calling.  Please pray that God will let me know if she is the right one.  I want to help my son, not hurt him. 

My son is going to counseling on Monday, August 11th.  Please pray that God's will will be done.  He is still trying really hard to live a christian life.  Please continue to pray for him as he goes through these next few weeks that God will hold him in the palm of his hand and things will be according to God's plan.

Hello Sctami,

WELCOME!


I sincerely hope that you enjoy Christians Unite.

Your son will be in my prayers. Counseling on this issue is available in most locations. It is an unacceptable and life-threatening behavior, so it should not be permitted by parents. If one forgot completely about the Biblical and moral issues, the life-threatening evidence is unquestioned. If one adds the Biblical, moral, and other issues, you have the reasons why this behavior has been TABOO throughout history. It's TABOO by GOD and by man.

Love In Christ,
Tom

I agree totally. It is indeed a dangerous thing. Such a lifestyle is just a ticking bomb waiting to go off. Please do get some good Christian councilling for both you and your son in this matter.

My prayers will be with your family.

Hello Sctami,

I've been down sick with an ear and sinus infection for the last several days. I just wanted to let you know that your family is still in our prayers. I was hoping and praying that you might have located some community resources that could help you close to home. I forgot to ask you about your church and suggest maybe a visit with your pastor or Christian counseling. This is just another idea.

Love In Christ,
Tom

Dear Tom:

Thank you so much for your prayers and support.  Yes, I have communicated with my pastor, as he is my brother.  He is keeping my son in his prayers.  My son is to go to church camp the week of July 21st.  Please keep him in your prayers as this will be a really good thing for him.  He seems to be a little happier the last few days, but still confused.  Please continue to pray for him.  I am hoping he will make new friends this year.  I believe it is more of a self esteem issue with him, that he feels bad about himself and thinks that the girls will not like him.  He is not one for sports, he is more of a intellect person.  I really believe that if he goes to camp he will be better.  The counselor he will be with is an excellent christian and loves young people.  He has stated that he will work with Mitchell.  Please pray for him. 

Thanks again!
Tami

Hey Everyone!!!  My son is at camp!  My niece went with him.  She is a counselor.  She called me last night and said that Mitch seems to be having a good time, which made me happy.  But I think what made my day a little better was when she said that he was talking to A GIRL!!  The prayers which we are praying are working!!!  Please keep praying for him that God will continue to belss him this week.  It is just the first day of camp, and he has the rest of the week to go.  If God can do so much in just a couple of hours, imagine what he can do in a week (besides creating heaven, earh, animals, humans, oceans, skies, etc.)  Please continue to pray!!  I will keep you updated when I hear from my niece.  Again, thanks to all of you!  You are awesome christians who believe in a power that is much higher and greater and it means a lot!

Hello Sctami,

YEAH! It sounds like things are going good. Just going to the Bible Camp is a very positive action. YES - we will keep praying for him.

Love In Christ,
Tom
