Pray for guidence and safety in her decision. Pray that my youngest will make good choices for herself in her sister's absence. She has been a good influence on her younger sister. We are blessed by our children. God id good! But it is really hard being a teen these days...They can use all the prayer they can get! Thank God for his provision and guidence.

Just want to say pray that my grandson Ben is blessed there has been changes made in his life without him asking or wanting them. He, his mom and little brother had to come and live with grandpa and I. May they all get to live in peace and harmony soon.

pray for my son Joshua who turned 18 on November 5, 2010. He told us that he was gay back in May when he graduated. My husband is not talking to him and Josh is not talking to my husband. My daughter Rachel is 16 years old and she seems acceptable of the gay lifestyle. My husband and I both told him what the bible says about gay life style and he will not listen. They only want to talk or speak when they are right and if they need money. My other son Noah is 8 years old and he is doing very poorly in school. My daughter Sarah has Downs and is 7 years old and is being potty trained and cannot speak any words. She makes sounds and you cannot understand her. None of my kids were in church. I told them about the bible from what I have learned and they will not read the bible. I gave the older kids a bible last year for Chrismas 2009. My husband was a believer and now he is not. He does not even bring the bible up and when he does, he makes mockery about me believing in prayer or say something sarcatic about me praying for him. We not go to church and I am looking for a church home. I am 49 years old and my husband, Mike is 46. God Bless, Alethea
