Damaged spirit needs your prayers

This is a request for prayers for the healing of one man's spirit and the remission of an auto-immune disease

When I was a young child my mother died, the first of a series of events in a traumatic childhood.

Fifty years later I've developed a rare auto-immune disease, scleraderma, which makes the skin thick and leathery. I'm convinced it's because I was trying to protect myself by developing a suit of "armor". I've spent the last two years coming to grips with those childhood traumas, but I've realized in the process that my spirit was badly hurt, that I've been suffering for over fifty years, and that my spirit is the thing that really needs to be healed.

I don't know how to do that, so I am praying for myself, I am asking friends and family to pray for me (alarming them, because I have never been a religious person), and now I am throwing myself on your mercy, and asking humbly and sincerely that you pray for me, first that my spirit will be healed, then that my disease will enter complete and permanent remission, because it will no longer be needed to protect me.

Thank you.
