In my Friday post I mentioned wonderful friends and true prayer warriors. It is not too often I post a special post that is a prayer request.
I thought I had a bad week but a Bluebird here messaged me tonight and her week was a parents worst nightmare.
For privacy reasons I will say J is the most wonderful friend. Her daughter, also J, tried to take her own life.
The daughter had a very traumatic thing happen to her when in high school. It was something that went on and on. She has the most loving family and is the most gorgeous girl but she has never recovered from it and everything has been tried. These parents have gone to every length to find ways to help.
This is not the first time this has happened. Any of us with kids can imagine the horror... and the worry that sooner or later she will be successful at ending her young life.
Nothing has worked... some things have helped for a time.
So I offered that given there are Bluebirds that are really serious and when they say they will pray they really will... that we can gather together and pray for this girl and her parents.
We have had more than one instance here where prayers have been said for someone and they have made an actual miraculous recovery. I have seen it now several times. When I had given up on someone and they recovered!
When I was a teenager this was what convinced me to make my own decision for God... through prayer my Uncle recovered. It was so remarkable that the doctors and the nurses of the hospital he was in formed a guard of honour as he left the hospital! Months later I saw him. He could not speak properly because of all the tubes he had down his throat for so long. He leaned over to me and said "I know what you did" and I sat there dumbfounded... and he said "I didn't believe in God before but now I do" and then I knew my prayers and what I had said to God were known to my uncle who could not know... and so this was the point I felt "Ok now I know for sure."
So miracles happen through prayer.
If you will pray for J and J this would be a hope where at the moment they don't feel too hopeful.
