She suffers from depression. I believe if she had a sense of a higher power that she could pray to-she would benefit greatly. Please pray for her to understand that we have an active, caring God. Thanks

Depression is so terribly insidious. And it's just as agonizing for those who watch and care for a loved one who suffers with this illness. It must be especially painful for this to be happening to your child.
You know you are held, you know she is...and your prayer is that she comes to know this also.

Peace to your heart...

Jo

Thanks for your responses!
I have never asked for prayers before-it is way more comforting than I expected!
I know TUB says that after you have done all you can-it's ok to ask. We were as tapped out for solutions as we could be.
For the past two days, she has been better-after almost three years!
Peace and Love
Elliott

Dear Elliot,

I want to add my voice to this thread, too. I have suffered with depression, off-and-on, for many years, and I know what a scourge it can be. It is only through God's grace that I have recovered as well as I have - no pills, no shrinking... I rarely now have significant spells of depression. Prayer is a marvelous antidote!!!

I will keep your lovely daughter in my prayers, too...

Sincerely

My Daughter's name is Jennifer. Update: Jenn is hesitant to give herself over to a higher power. She sometimes asks her Mother and I to pray for others.
We got a candle for her to light when she felt like she needed prayer-for herself or whatever. She has been on the upswing for a week now, and when her Mom went there yesterday, the candle had been burned! Little victories and they feel great! Thanks for your continuing prayers.
Elliott

Thanks for the update Elliot! It is good to hear of her improvement. I pray to God that it continues and that her strength girds her for the challenges, when she faces them and gives balance, comfort, joy and contentment when things are going well for her. Amen. :smile:

Thanks for the Update Elliot. I had forgotten recently to prayer for your daughter. But when you and her come to mind I do. And now you have brought a positive thought back to me awakening my perception to the healing of your daughter and those around her who desire her good health. and I'm praying for her again Elliot. Thank you for the update.

May your daughters healing process continue and may all around her have strength during the ups and downs of her healing process. May their love and support and her own internal faith and love grow as together we raise above the pains and limitations of a material life.

God bless you and Jennifer and all those around you and keep you all within the healing powers of His Love. May your Spirits soar as Jennifer's spirit grows in love and healing as we go through the paces of this Life on to the Next.

God's Love be you Elliot and those you Love. :smile:
