Gary J.
a nineteen year old young man

Gary was recently arrested for burglary in a small town where he had been breaking into automobiles stealing change and other small items,(a few CD's, cell phone,etc.)

Gary's father is a friend of mine, who was distraght before Christmas when his son called him from jail, asking him to put his truck up as collaterol for bail money. Gary has a history of behavioral and mental problems. His parents are divorced. He has been in legal trouble before, and does not have a job. He received a GED after being kicked out of high school. His father is a caring person who loves his son, but is at a loss now as to how he can help him. Please pray for divine intervention that will help this young man realize his self-destructive tendencies, help him seek the professional help he needs and stick with it, help him to assume responsibility for his actions, be aware of his choices and their consequences, and appreciate the help his father is trying to provide.

Lord, first let me praise you for your wonderful gifts that you give us in this life. Thank you for all the beauty and love that you have put into my world. Please look down upon Gary, this troubled young man, and bless him with your love, forgiveness, and grace, and give him the courage he needs to overcome the adversities in his life. Help him to see that he is loved and valued by his family, and others who care for him. Help him to turn his life into a positive force by doing your will, making the right choices, and fighting to heal himself through your amazing love. Guide him to see the path before him clearly through his mental problems, and from now on let his life take a different path. Let him see that it is never too late to call upon the Lord, to put his faith in God, to walk in Jesus's path. Help him become a loving and appreciative son, a better friend, and a willing servant to do your will. Thank you Lord for hearing this prayer. Amen.

Lord, I have faith that you have already begun to help and change this man's life...I ask that you help him to improve his mental health, that you guide him and his family to become closer and more understanding of one another, that they are able to help one another when help is needed, and that they are willing to accept help from one another. Please give both father and son hope so that they can begin to let go of the past hurts and mistakes, and walk in the light of your love into a life that they were meant to share...a life filled with simple blessings: appreciation and effort and satisfying work and forgiveness and companionship and smiles. Touch them with your finger, to make each day a growing toward the positive lives they can have. I know Lord, that you have already done this, please open their eyes so that they see their opportunities and take action to build a relationship with you and your son, Jesus, thereby doing your will. Amen

Lord, I thank you for the report I got from Gary's father that they had an honest moment. Also, that father and son are beginning to interact more posivitely, honestly, calmly. Lord, you have put them on the right path, and I have faith that you will begin to lead this young man into more successful situations. Help him to realize that his choices will influence the choices of others, and that right now is the time to take steps in the right direction. Thank you Lord for watching over this family, and I pray you continue to do so. Amen

Lord, as time moves us forward, and change happens every second whether we see it or not, I ask you to continue to bless Gary and his family and continue to move them toward positive change to a place where trust and love abound. Amen

Lord, though I have not spoken to my friend lately I trust that you have blessed his household with peace this week. Continue to help us all improve our relationships, and bless all our friends and family on this day. Amen

Father, please look upon your son, Gary and help him to walk the right way. Lord, sometimes it seems the only way things will improve is through a miracle. Well, I know that you make miracles every day, and I never will give up the faith that tells me that this young man can be helped. Right now, YOU are the only one who can help him Lord. He is rather unreachable to his father. I hear the pain and frustration in his voice when I speak to him about his son. He doesn't want to give up on his son, and he believes in the power of prayer. Lord, Hear my prayer and his, and touch the heart of this young man to take away his sickness, and heal him through your grace and mercy and love. Amen
