Joe A
My Family and I need help. July 12, 2005

Pray for my family and me in our time of extreme stress.

My family and I are going through very bad stress financially and legally & we need God's help to get through this. We have 3 wonderful teenaged boys & my wife is a wonderful person that has endured much in her life. I am the sinner & am worthless. I have done some things that I am not proud of..I have no excuse for them...and now, I will soon be called to task for my actions. I did nothing violent to anyone, but all I fear now is for my family's safety without me. I cannot bear the thought of living without them. All I want is to see my sons get a good education and graduate high school. The depression we are going through is profound and I do not know what to do anymore.
Please pray for my family's safety..pray that I can be strong enough for them now...I am not.
God Bless you all.

Eternal Father, we thank you for Joe's life, and we ask you to strengthen Joe and his family as they face these difficult times. Bind Joe's family together with your love, so that they may draw strength from you and from one another. Help them to see your reflection in one another, and to know that you are with each of them every moment of every day. Most especially, touch Joe's heart with your healing forgiveness, and help him to know that your love is strong enough to overcome even the worst acts man can imagine. Help Joe to experience the overwhelming power and peace that comes from your love. Guide him to accept the fact that you forgive and love him, no matter what, and that you will stand by him, no matter what. Enable Joe to recognize that your help comes to us in many forms, and guide him to a psychiatrist who will help him and his family deal with depression. Finally, help Joe to recognize the opportunities he has to serve you in his future. We are grateful to you, dear Father, for Joe and his life. Heal his broken spirit, and show him the path you have laid out before him, the path of strength, rightiousness, love, and service to you, dear Father. Amen.

Joe, I will not stop praying for you. God loves you more than you can possibly imagine, and he is sending you help. My father (who now has Alzheimer's) used to tell a story about a man trapped in his house as a river flooded all around him. He prayed to the Lord to keep him safe. A neighbor came by in a canoe and offered the man a ride, but the man said, no, that he had prayed and the Lord would take care of him. Time passed, and the man had to climb to the second story of his house to escape the rising waters. Finally, a police boat came by and offered to take the man aboard. "No, thanks," the man said, "The Lord is going to provide for me." When the waters had risen to the point where the man was forced to climb to the roof of his house, a helicopter came to rescue him, but again, the man refused, saying the Lord would protect him. Ultimately, the man drowned, and in heaven, he asked the Lord why he had not been saved. "What do you mean?" the Lord replied, "I tried to save you over and over again. I sent a canoe, a police boat, and a helicopter." So, Joe, seek out the people and the opportunities that the Lord is sending you. He loves you immeasurable, and he has plans for your life. All you have to do is follow his lead from here forward. I'll keep praying.

We are trying hard to get through this, now my mom had to go in to the hospital with pneumonia. God is really testing us this time. God Bless & thank you for your continued prayers.
