Katie E
Please prayer for my daughter who is bulemic

This wonderful, charming intelligent young woman has been devastated by this disease.

She has turned from a confident, strong willed, outgoing, popular talented athlete to a girl who is unsure, frightened and very very angry. She has destroyed relationships, she has shunned her family and friends and she has found herself in a destructive and co-dependent relationship with a young man. She sees him as her savior...and he is a nice young man. But he comes with own set of almost insurmountable problems and he is overwhelmed at the thought of taking care of her. He tries to help..but his help is mis-directed. He has been caught up in the web of lying, manipulating and covering up that is bulemia.

My heart and prayers go out to you for your daughter, Katie. I know this is a devasting illness and have seen several movies about it. One feels so helpless when the loved one refuses help and is unwilling to communicate about the problem. The reason I responded is that I have a granddaughter, Katie, who is suffering from ADHD and she becomes very withdrawn. I feel the same helplessness you must feel at being unable to reach her at those times. May God bless you. Don't give up trying. Somehow God will find a way!

Please know I too will be praying for your daughter katie. I as well suffered from bulemia. It is a horrible and controlling disease. Please remember there are medications out there for katie that may help her with the disease and depression in which she IS suffering. My prayers go out to you and her. God Bless If she ever feels the need to talk about her situation as it is never a problem ( we are under complete control of this, I know) she may e mail me anytime at I would love to talk with her and share my experiences. Sometimes it is easier to talk with someone who has been there.Again God Bless you all....

Re-direct her O Lord back on to the right path. Give also support to her family as they try to coop with Katies problem. Give strenght to the young man and help him to over come his problem so that he may see clearly again for his sake and for Katies sake. I pray to you this day in the name of The Father, The Son and the Holy Ghost., AMEN

In Jesus name I pray.

Precious Child, As a mother, it is so hard to watch your children dash their lives on the rock in life. I pray that your Katie will know that God loves her. That she will be relieved of this terrible disease and be healed as only our Lord can. The spirit is so suppressed at times like this within that it is hard to even see that in you loved one but I know that the same God we make our request to is the one that has the power to heal this child that he loves too. I want each person involved to know His love is bigger than anything that is happening. My son has been involved in drugs and the pain that it has caused each family member is tremendous. Each of us has had to let go and to truly allow God to do his perfect work. The most important thing is to never ever forget to say I love you and to love just as God loves each of us, unconditionally. I pray His peace on you and yours and the health, healing and blessings of Our Lord on Katie and her friend.

I pray that you may be humble enough to realize how you and your upbringing have affected who your daughter is toady, and that by reaching out to help yourself, you may someday be able to reach her. I pray that Katie may find the power to overcome her past and find self love and self respect in the journey.

Jesus please help Katie E. Thank You Jesus.

Dear God, may Katie and all girls like her come to the realization that they are who they are because of your will, and that the way that they look is the way you meant for them to look. Let it sink in with Katie that to try to be a different person is to destroy who she was meant to be, and that her image of perfection will mean self-destruction. Please Katie, open your eyes, your fear of fat is creating the same result that you are trying to avoid. God wants your body to be round and soft, not skin and bones, and not masked by excess fat. It is perfectly fine to try to be lean and to show yourself as a monument to God's incredible design of woman. What you do takes away the body you need to be that image of God. It leaves a distortion of a woman that is the ultimate disrespect to the design God had in mind. Please, Katie, please snap out of it!

My whole heart truly goes out to Katie and her family I pray to you God that you put your healing hands on her before it is to late. I have been down the self destructive path of fear, pain, and anger since I was 16 years old. I became bulimic at 25 and still have stomach problems at age 34. Please wrap your wings around her alittle tighter than usual. She is suffering more than others know and it could damage her for life. I believe I have gone through alot and am therefore better able to help others from my sincere, experienced heart. I am still recovering from alot, but am closer than I ever have been and I know with your guidance Katie will make it through this. Help Katies family be strong and patient, as this is what will help Katie so much. Unconditional, patient, never dying love. I also know this because that is the kind of family I have. Please hear my prayer and help Katie know she is not alone and has a huge support and prayer network. I have placed her on my prayer list and hope she hears them. May peace, health and healing take place over this family and self respect and self love over Katie. It is not always the parents fault either as I read in one of the prayers, but something could have happened to Katie to stir everything up. Nobody knows what shoes the person is walking in except that person and God himself.
Peace, Love and Happiness Be With You!
