Meredith Johnson
suffering with teenage depression and lack of respect for herself and everything else.


Thank you to those who have prayed on behalf of my daughter. It touched me greatly to open my request and see how many others care. She is doing better, but there will continue to be rough spots. Thank you!

Meredith is 15 and struggles with teenage depression and trying to cope with all that teenage girls have to deal with these days. She takes medication and is in therapy,however has slipped back to a bad place. She does not freely talk about herself, feelings or anything. Very closed with her emotions. As her parent it is so difficult to watch her be destructive with her own life and hurt the ones around her that only want to understand and help. My prayer is two-fold. Meredith obviously needs the loving touch of our father for her mental wellbeing. Her parents need support to get through this with their family intact. I pray everyday for patience, guidence and understanding, but I feel worn down. Please pray for Meredith, our family and for strength to see us through a difficult time.

I understand mental illness an hope that Meredith is able to overcome depression which is difficult. But with time and acceptance, I am hoping that she is able to understand her problem and able to be open about it in her own mind. I hope that through Christ that she will see herself as a good person with a terrible disease, depression and be able to seperate who she really is from this illness. I pray that her family has the strength to understand her illness and is able to be open with each other and come together to help Meredith. Thank-you Jesus for Meredith and her special being as a person and for the special paths you may help choose for her in this life.

I pray that Meredith gets the strength to overcome the depression. I pray that her parents, family and friends have to strength to stand by her every minute of every day to support her in every way. I pray that they do not give up on her. I pray that she realizes the potential of her life, and learns to love herself. I pray that this family get through this tough time without giving up on themselves and God.

This prayer is for every teenager that feels like life isnt worth living,Lord knows what we each go through inside that no one seems to see or feel, he knows that waking everyday and waiting the day away to finally sleep and to enter another is such a struggle sometimes that the neverending pain and emptiness drowns us and who we really want to be. My Lord, that has saved me and showed me the light in the darkest place in my life, please touch and heal this young girl,show her life beyond her existing pain and let it be a memory and a story to be proud to survive.To Meredith, just when you think there is no hope and you learn to live in the day and the small joys God will sweep you off your feet and carry to a safer place,and don't think that I am an adult who doesnt understand the seroisness of your struggle I too am only 18 and am seeking light in my darkness.

Meredith, if you read this, know that I and others know what it's like to go through what you're dealing with. I have been bipolar for most of my life. When I was 10, I wanted to kill myself. In the last year I tried to kill myself 6 times. How many attempts have I made? I don't know? I firmly believe now that it was the Lord, my God and the God of peace and understanding that kept me alive. It takes a long time to find the right meds sometimes, but when you do your world is different and new. You may never be the same person you were...And don't try to be. Learn from what you're going through and don't be ashamed. Sometimes it helps to talk about things. Sometimes it's best to talk to strangers about your feelings first. I will pray for you and your family. Know that people love and care for you. I have this, my sister, Meredith has this and it's hard. But keep going. Isolation only makes things worse. Maybe I sound like a preacher, but it's never easy to talk about this or offer help and advice. But I am praying for you and all of us like you. There will be a time when this is all better.

Blondie79-I know that worn down feeling. My daughter is going through the same feelings as yours. She has been struggling since she was 13-when her father died. She is 17 now and is on the verge of not graduating from high school. Everyday I try to make things smoother for her and there is always someone else who hurts her feelings. My prayers are with you and I hope you will pray for my daughter-she is at a bad place right now and can't see a future. Please pray that she can see her way through the next week and that she will go back to school for her exams. I wish you the peace.

I don't know if my wish for her is appropriate, but even so, here it is.

May she find the strenght to throw this monster off her mind. May her fathers and mothers be with her in the dark places and into the bright. May she find her will and joy again.

Heavenly Father, I do know that at one point in time or another we all feel depression. Some us beyond anything anyone can compare to. Bless her in trying to overcome it. I've been down the same road and its a hard one to walk down. I barely made it. Bless her family with the strenght to help her and support her and her with the strength to support herself and the ability to laugh and smile and little more often.

Dear Lord please bring something very real to this young lady to let her know of your unconditional love for her and for her parents, I know depression far too well and of all of the daily struggles. But a renewed hope, an unwavering strength, and for you to open her eyes to what matters, to know that she is loved by many and that she can make a difference someday for someone going through the same struggle. Sometimes it only takes a smile, a hug, the squeeze of a hand and all of the prayers that we don't see, that we can't read. Touch her heart and give her a love for life and for herself.

Oh Lord, please give this family the faith to find the positive energy to endure and concure their daily struggles with depression. I know all to well of their journey as I have experiences it too with my daughter. I pray that they fine positive energy every day to lift their daughter from her sadness. I ask the Lord to give these parents the wisdom and knowledge to council their daughter through her depression and to guide her to good energies to correct her homone imbalances and bring back a mentally healthy person. Remember..."to have fear, there is no faith...but To Have Faith, there is NO Fear!" Lord give them faith!

I'll pray with you, mama. I too am a loving, exhausted mom who feels greatly for your feelings of depletion and desire for the other family members to have their needs fulfilled as well. Please have faith and know if your intentions and energy are made of love, the outcome will be what is intended.

Please be with her family and friends and help them to understand that there is nothing they can do to change the situation other than give their unconditional love and support. I ask this in the name of Your son, Jesus Christ, Amen.
