My twin 18 year old boys are estranging themselves from me and Im uncertain as to why. The uncertainty of them never returning is causing me horrible anxiety, making my skin crawl with discomfort over all that has occurred. Please let them be reminded that they have a mother who truly loves them and doesn’t want much, just a warm place to fall. Let them feel the accountability for their sins, and soften their hearts to STOP listening to lies and creating lies about their life. They need to make peace with Jesus and with their family who stand behind me because they know how wrong the boys were. We stood on respect and had rules, and they simply would not follow them. They are being deceived by others and lying about circumstances to gain attention and compassion, let their lies be exposed. Let their Christian conscience awaken and let them feel your presence and know you are very real and life without you is so empty. Let them feel convicted when they lie and Lord, teach them to feel remorse for all the pain they have caused now and over the years and want to have peace with their Mom, stepdad, and other two siblings.
We acknowledge Lord our imperfections, but by your grace and mercy we are forgiven, and want to see these boys rise in strength to know without Jesus and family their lives are not complete. Mother’s day is coming Lord and I would like you to touch them now and show them all the good I have done and the tolerance I had was beyond most moms.
I want them to feel our love, and to redeem their hope in you, and keep them safe in your loving arms, let them feel the holy spirit come shining through into their hearts as I pray for them, let the goose bumps and their hearts and minds be filled with thoughts and feeling of Me and remember all that I have done. I ache in pain Lord, for them. Please take my pain and turn it into passion and peace. I pray for peace to enter me from the moment I wake up dear Lord. Take this anxiety and cast it out and fill me with the confidence that they will return to me and set aside all doubts that tey are gone. They appear to be trying to hurt me Lord and I rebuke that pain back to them Lord, as I follow your word. As I desire more than anything for them to know you again, I ask that you keep them clean of illegal drugs and acknowledge that medication and or therapy is needed for them to regain peace, and fill their lives with people of faith. Their words are lies and confusion, help them to see the truth as we know it. We are faithful to you, and want to feel good about being on this planet pursuing all that you have for me. Lord, you have allowed this to happen and you have a plan for me, please show me what you would have me do. Give me your strength, because I am weak. I love you dear Jesus, I want so much to have you be in my heart and mind all the time so that no more darkness can even enter in. I love you Lord. In Jesus mighty name, Amen
Return to Prayer for Depression
“Dear Heavenly Father,
The wonderful gifts of life are the people you have allowed us to love and be loved by.
I have lost a person very dear to my heart and my heart is heavy with the grief from this loss. As you know, each person is a unique creation that is irreplaceable.
Lord, as I think of the memories that will tie me to this person forever, please help me to see past this pain. Let the love that has made this loss so hard never die. I know my heart is capable of loving much, if it is capable of this kind of pain.
Will you help my heart to share this love again? Open new friends and people into my life. I know that they will never replace my dear one. But, my heart has a lot of love to share and that will not end with the death of ____________.
Show me how to deal with my grief in the best way you see fit. Help me to continue to reach through to others through my pain. Draw closer to me as I lean closer to you. You are Jehovah Rappha, the God that heals broken hearts.
Right now the pain is so intense. It feels as if my heart will never beat the same again. Give me hope, Lord. I need your presence to fill my heart, my home and lift this depression.
Cradle me in your arms as I go to bed at night. I am having a hard time sleeping. Give me complete shalom in every way.
In Jesus’ precious name, I come to you as my comforter, my healer and my peace. Amen.”

For Those Grieving the Loss of Loved Ones
Dedicated in loving memory of Pastor Bertril Baird, who was like a grandfather to me.
Jehovah Jireh, there is none like You. Every day I want to praise and worship Your glorious name. Today I weep at the death of my friend/family/loved one. But Blessed Father, I can rest assured knowing You are there for me. I know I can find comfort and peace within You, in the midst of my tears and grief. Lord, I shout Your praises, because You have turned my mourning into dancing.
Psalm 18:22 The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer. My God, my strength, in whom I will trust? My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
Matthew 5:44 Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
Comfort in times of loneliness
Console me Lord as I grieve today. Give me Your strength, Heavenly Father. Remind me of Your promises. Comfort me when loneliness strikes and I feel lost. I pour out my heart to You today Lord, for I am broken, shattered and weary.
Heavenly Father, I need You. I am crying out in desperation, in search of that peace that will soon emerge as I cling to You.
Console those of us who are grieving today, give us Your strength oh Heavenly Father. Click To Tweet
2 Corinthians 1:3-4 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
Revelation 21:44 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.
Mending the broken heart
Jesus, my Savior, my friend. You are the resurrection and the life! You wept at the loss of Lazarus, yet You are capable of overcoming death and the sorrow of death. Help me as I feel despair, to find hope in You.
Mend the broken-hearted. Reward us with the consolation of Your presence and Your love. Set us free from this burden on our hearts, dear Lord. Help us to emerge whole and brand new as the circumstances strengthen us.
Even in the midst of my grief, I declare that all I pray for will come to pass, in Jesus mighty name, Amen!!
Mend the broken-hearted, reward us with the consolation of Your presence and Your love. Click To Tweet
1 Thessalonians 4:13-15 But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus. For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord, will by no means precede those who are asleep.
