Rachael P
Mental Illness Is Ravaging My Daughter

Please pray for my daughter, Rachael, who is plagued by a variety of diagnoses including bi-polar disorder, depression, post-traumatic stress and obsessive-compulsive disorder.

My daughter is newly turned 18 and has battled with mental illness for years. Despite years of therapy and prescriptions she continues to self-mutilate and lacks any positive self-esteem. She has been dabbling in sexual activity, a "gothic" lifestyle and suicidal gestures. We are at a loss as to what to do next. It seems like one step forward only leads to three steps back and we're just treading water.

Now that she's an "adult" and is anxious to leave home, we fear that she'll go too far and either end up pregnant or take her life.

We are desperate for a healing of her mind, body and soul. Please pray for our daughter to find some inner peace and self-love.

Thank you for your prayers, they are much appreciated.

"Father God", we come before you this morning standing on your word. Your word says that with the mind we serve "You" and because we serve you with our mind, Satan attacks our mind and tries to bring us into submission to do his will. But, we come before you today "Father" setting up a standard that says Satan cannot have Rachel's mind because "you" died that we might have life and have it more abundantly. In the midst of that abundance "Father" we speak healing, we speak peace, we speak divine relationship, we speak anointing, we speak joy, we speak your word that says "you" will not leave us comfortless, "you" will come to us and heal us. When you sent forth your servant moses to free your people moses asked who should he tell the people "you" were and "you" said tell them "I AM". In those two words you became everything that we would ever need to live life more abundantly. Right now "Father" Rachel needs healing. Your word says I AM a healer, I Am a doctor, I AM peace, I AM joy, I AM whatever I need to be to give you your abundance and we claim that today for Rachel and her family. The standard has been set, the claims have been made. One has planted, Another has watered and now comes your increase. Thank you "Father" in the name of "Jesus" for your increase. We praise you now for what is and what will be. Amen

We beg You to accept and grant the prayers of Saint Dymphna on our behalf. Grant to those we have particularly recommended patience in their sufferings and resignation to Your Divine Will.
