Ray and Joel Jones
My sons


My 21 year old son Ray has just recently been diagnosed with schizophrenia and is suffering terribly, additionally my 18 year son Joel died very suddenly and tragically in January 2004.

My son Ray needs all the prayers he can get to help his medications and doctors get him back to the level of where he can somewhat function in this extremely confusing world to him. He needs the delusions and halluncinations to go away. My son Joel has already died of a terrible accident, but I fear he was not a believer even though we occasionally went to church. He was only a teenager and I don't believe he had truely accepted God yet...he left this earth way too soon with his beautiful spirit and big heart. Please pray for my children. Iris

Dear child of God,
Blessing Iris, I can understand and feel your grief. Children are our hearts. Please try not to concentrate on your son being a believer, this is what the enemy is trying to get you to do. (This takes you mind off of praising our redeemer, we are not sure what happens at the time of crisis between a person and the Lord, we are to have faith and trust in his word) My prayers with surround your son that is suffering with schizohienia. I understand some what about the confusing and other things he may be thinking. I honestly believe that the enemy wants you to concentrate on the systems in lieu of your direct rebunk of the actions. As long as your thought are consentration on the negative, the less the devil has to worry about. I am not a holy-roller, I am a born again Christian, who also lost a son, and I do believe in my heart that if had not let my emotions let in the way, he may still be here. He was only 6. This may seem a little weird at first, but, the scripture, the word of God says to lay hands on the oil. While is he resting, pray over him, anoint him with oil, claim his healing in the name of Christ. Have yourself and husband agree in prayer each moment you can. Believe me, Satan does not want you to concentrate on the healing, only the outward appearance. I understand you do not know me, but I do know that I did not on purpose open this particular prayer request by accident. I FEEL AS THOUGH GOD IS GIVING YOU THE CHANCE TO FILL HIS SPIRIT WITH LOVE, AND AS MUCH AS THE WORD AS YOU CAN ON HEALING. Keep in mind sister, do your best, even if nobody knows, GOD KNOWS! If there is anything else I can do, my voice of healing for your son, and your peace will pray for you daily. I do keep a prayer journal. Please let me know how the Lord moves.
In the name of Jesus Christ my Lord, my savior, my redeemer, my everything. I come to you on behalf of my brother Roy, and demand that the devil release his mind from bondage in the your name. In the name of Father, Son and Holy Spirit. So be it. AMEN!
Blessings, your sister in Christ

Dear Father in Heaven, I come to you humbly asking for help for Iris and her son, Ray. You know what he needs and I ask You Father to command the Demon Spirits to leave his body right now! Send Your annointing down and cover him with it. I ask Father for the forgiveness of sins knowing and unknowing of Joel. You are the only one who knows if he truly accepted You before drawing his last breath. I ask Dear Lord that You ease this terrible burden off of Iris. Comfort her in her time of need. She needs to know You, Lord. She needs to know that You have accepted Joel and that You will heal Roy. In the name of Jesus, I claim it as being done. Amen

Lord, grant Iris the strength and wisdom to support her son, Ray, through his illness. Console and comfort Iris and her family as they grieve for the passing of Joel.
Help Ray to manage and control his condition with the support of his loving mother.
And I ask in prayer that the soul of Joel may rest in the peace and love of the Lord. Amen.

Iris; I have/had 2 family members diagnosed with the same illness. PLEASE believe that you are not responsible for nor can you control this. It is a medical condition which can be corrected with proper medical care. My thoughts are with you and your son at this time. Have strength and patience and everything will be fine.

Lord; Please give Iris the power to cope with this problem her son is having. Help Ray to rid this confusion and torment from his mind. Give them both peace and comfort each other while on this path.

Lord; Please watch over Joel. His family loved him dearly and is concerned about him still in passing. If you can see it in your spirit, and through Iris' belief in you, show her that you are taking care of Joel and that in everlasting life there is peace and happiness.

AMEN

Oh God Bless you. My heart and prayers go out to you and your loved ones. I can't imagine your pain...my heart hurts for you. My 20 year old son is diognosed with bi polar disorder and now is fighting cocaine addiction. He is in rehab right now. God will be with you...just ask him to wrap his arms around your son and take care of him. I will pray for you and your son. Please know that your son who passed away is with God now. Our God is a loving God and would never turn one of his children away. Dear God...please wrap your love and care around Ray and be with him through this time in his life. Amen.

GOD BLESS YOU!!! My Brother has been battling this illness for 9 years and it is a day to day struggle, but GOD will give you the strength to stay by his side. It is important he see good doctors and stay on his meds and read literature and so on to understand his illness. He can live a normal life if he takes his meds and has the love and support from his family and having GOD to believe in is a great help too. As far as your other son dying, pray to him as his young soul is probably standing by his brother. GOD is a good god and a forgiving GOD. Don't borrow trouble and you are in my prayers.

Papa Dios: Que terrible esta enfermedad de ezquizofrenia, sabes bien Papa que esto es una enfermedad no existente, que han sido muchos o demasiados los estudios que se han realizado para encontrar el tratamiento adecuado, las medicinas adecuadas... y ni tan siquiera se conoce el origen de la "enfermedad". Como yo, muchos creemos que esto va mas alla de lo que el ser humano tiene conocimiento, espero Señor que tu le des conocimiento a ese tu hijo y a su madre para sobrellevar esa rara enfermedad, Papa te pido que el entienda que donde no hay nada, nada hay, donde no hay ruido, silencio hay y asi consecutivamente. Solo Tu puedes Señor, con tan solo tocarlo. Tocalo Padre te lo ruego en el nombre del Padre, del Hijo y del Espiritu Santo, Amén.

Bless this and all situations for the best, Lord, in this world and the next, and thank You for all Your countless blessings;

In Your Holy Name,

Amen.
