Andrea and Russell Yates

Prayers for Russell and Andrea Yates. Andrea killed her 5 children, after suffering from longterm post-partum depression.

Please pray for God's unconditional love, divine compassion, and divine healing during this terrible time for the Yates family. I only wish for prayer for the Yates family. We must be compassionate toward the mentally and emotionally ill. Let us pray also that Ms. Yates is not put to death for her actions, no matter how we judge them.

Dear Father in Heaven, even Your Name is Holy. Your Kingdom is coming to us and whatever You want is done here on earth and in Heaven. Give us and the Yates what we need to survive today and give us today what we will need tomorrow. Have mercy on us and forgive us our sins, as we, in our hearts, forgive those folks who have hurt us or wronged us. Steer us away from temptation and evil and come rescue us when we stray from You. Father in Heaven, watch over the Yates and give them Your Strength to get through today.

Dear Kind Heavenly Father, I pray today for Andrea and Russell that they may find some peace with You after losing their 5 children. I pray that You will be compassionate with Andrea because of her mental illness. Help those that will be setting on the trial to on put the death penalty on her and to let You be the judge. Even though she killed her 5 children, I know that You will still forgive her if she will only ask. I pray for mercy on behalf on Andrea and I pray for comfort and peace on behalf of Andrea and Russell and the rest of their family and friends. I know those little ones are in heaven with you right now but I am sure they are very much missed down here on earth. Please watch over this family and take care of them in the months ahead. All these things I ask in Jesus name. Amen.

Dear God: I ask for your healing love to surround the Yates family as they struggle with this tragedy. Also, Lord, I pray that Andrea in her illness can get the help she so desperately needs. In your mercy, please hear her prayers and remind her she is still your child.

And Father, I pray that the members of the jury act with compassionate hearts and spare Andrea's life, knowing that illness made her commit these horrible acts, not malice or evil.

In your precious Name, I pray...Amen
