John Ayala
My husband of 35 years

Prayers are needed for my husband who has turned away from God right after the death of our 25 year old son Gabriel took his life. I ask for prayers that he find his faith again and ease his pain at our loss.

Our son Gabriel took his own life on April 20, 2005 and my husband pulled life support on May 4th. My husband quietly sobbed and said "..oh my God, I lost my boy".

We didn't know Gabriel was diagnosed Manic Depressive/Bipolar Schizophrenic. Wonderful son and father of 2 babies he kept his demons to himself battling them alone. Going through his wife's 2 years of chemotherapy for cancer, the birth of his premature daughter and working day/night to keep his spirits up and home intact. After the Memorial Service where 300+ people attended my husband stopped going to church, praying or mentioning it again.

I ask for prayers that God help my husband regain his faith and to know that our son is with his Father in heaven and in good hands now - free from demons and torment. He had accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior. I also ask for prayers for his girls Emilee & Lilly that they remember their Daddy with the wonderful love he showered on them.

Oh my Heavenly Father, I pray right now that you would work in John's heart and order his steps back to you. I pray that you would move in his life to bring him back to you.
I also pray for Gabriel's wife, Lord let her know she is not alone she has you. I pray that you would help her to serve you and help her Lord to train her children, Emilee and Lilly to live for you and serve you. I pray that they will trust you as their personal Savior at a early age. Love bless this family and draw them near to you. I pray for GabrielsMom to also just be the loving wife that you would have her be. Lord I pray this in your Holy Name, Amen.

GabrielsMom you are in my prayers.. I to have been going through some struggles, Nothing like loosing a son to death, but a husband that is unsaved and not knowing Christ is pretty bad too.. I hope you will look at my prayer circle and also pray for my husband and family.. May God bless you as you stand strong focused on Him. He will bring us through our trials.

In Christ,
