I also have a 14 year old daughter. Please pray that she continues her strong mind, but limit it to not using it to get in trouble. Pray for her anger issues, and to be able to walk away from sin, and others who do not have her best interest. She has a hard time with letting go of hurt, and has to answer any and everything someone says or does to her. please pray to deliver her from that evil. I pray for peace over her as well. In Jesus name, God Bless, Amen

Please pray for my son, he is will be 18 tomorrow and is drifting away to the way of the world. Please play the people influencing him to stray away from him. Pray for Gods peace to be with him, his understanding, his mind be strengthening in the name of Jesus. He has learning challenges, but all in all he is good. Pray that he can get a good life started and be able to manage it on his own and to be able to keep a job. thank you for this forum and this awesome blessing to be apart of it.

Wow. One of the things I have noticed here (not to minimize teenage sons) is that alot of these cries are for teenage daughters. I too, can relate, as I have a 17 year old that has concerned me for the past 5 years. I am learning to trust The Lord (again-sadly) I am very concerned for her, yet I know that The Lord has her in His hands. We must stand on scripture. We must. There is so much scripture on teenagers, the one that I speaks to me the most, is Isaiah 54:13 - "And all of your children shall be taught by the Lord, and Great shall be their peace". This helps me. Also, people be careful about judging pearents who have teens that have strayed. Not every parent is doing something wrong! Its time to take the Dr. Phil mentality out of the picture. It seems as though, there's always something wrong with what the parents are doing nowadays. I believe one of the main contribitutors to issues with children straying, in addition to satans blatant attack on todays youth, is that the church is NOT doing thier job as well. Im not just talking about the dead churches! Im talking about the annointed ones! Pastors: PLEASE hear from The Lord, not your flesh about what you say to your congregation. PLEASE BE LED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND NOT by The spirot of "being hip". There are too many people who are hurting. Many churches have the motto nowadays: "We are real people, who serve a real God, and want to help real people". Yes, we serve a real God! But there are too many churches NOT folowing The true spirit of Christ. They are not helping people. They are helping themsleves, and promoting/defending their church rather than Gods heart. Im sorry but Ive seen it countless times. ANd the "your offended" sermon is for some, but its not for everyone, and I see that that sermon has ripped people to the core, and that it has become a crutch for the churches that are not doing their jobs. As a result, sadly the division has spread, and people do not want to go to church any more. Its sad. But thank god we still have the freedom to worship in our own home!!

Please pray for my daugher Theresa. She is 13 years old and is full of enrgy. She has a lot of attitude and has a lot to say. We are having difficulty with her in many areas at home and at school. She would rather socialize than being responsible around the house and at school. She is behind in school and at home she would rather watch tv, listen to music or ignore us. The conversations we have end up in yelling because she doesn't listen to us and would rather argue. We are in the process of looking for another church. The church we went to is not meeting our needs spiritually. Our daughter feels rejected by the youth group as well. Please pray for guidance, love, and understanding on both sides. I miss my little girl. The tension is just too much for me and my husband and we end up just walking away. I want to have a close relationship with her but don't know how to reach her. I know she is a blessing from God, I am just in a fog and forget that she is a gift from God. Thank you for praying.

Please pray for Prashant 17yr old completing HSC. Bad company, drinking, smoking and drugs. Very rebellion..drifting away from God. We as a family have continued to love and embrace him..and am believing that Christ will take us through. It is very hurting and upsetting as two younger brothers are finding it difficult to cope as what their elder brother is doing. Please pray! pray! pray!. Lots of prophecies has been uttered over Prashants life....
