Celeste Williams
Mom has been diagnosed with Dementia and is in a nursing home.


Please pray for my Mom who recently has been diagnosed with dementia and is unable to care for herself. She is hurt and feels abandoned by her girls for putting her in a nursing home.

Mom has always taken care of herself and really resents having to be "taken care of". She insists we are abandoning her and it hurts so bad to see her this way. This disease is so cruel and hard to understand. It's very hard not to take personally the hurtful things Mom flings at us. We just ask you to pray for her to have peace of mind and heart and some acceptance of this situation. Thank you and God bless you and your families.

Dear Heavenly Father,
We pray for Celeste who has entered a world of confusion and is unaware of what is real and what is imagined Father, she is suffering from dementia, and in her state of mind, as you know, she feels her family has turned their backs on her and locked her away in a nursing home to get rid of her. Father, clear her mind for her to understand that this move is for her safety and well being and there is nothing vicious or cruel in their decision to placing her in the care of this facility. They only want what is best for their Mother who has always taken care of them...And now she has lost the ablility to take care of herself and in her state they can't handle her to take care of her themselves. Father we also pray for her family and for the difficult decision they had to make, it is never easy to have to take a loved one and move them to a care facility especially when it is against their will and they don't understand. Father, please give Celeste, peace, comfort and joy in her new living arrangements in the form of a new friend that will make her stay at the home better for her, kind words from the staff and excellent care, too. And a good chaplain to call on her to fill her spiritual needs Father. Fill her to overflowing with love, joy and peace and an abundance of friends and family who visit her on a regular basis in these her final years in this life. For her family bless them with faith, hope and love and endurance for what they will go through in the coming months and years as they have to witness the deterioration of their Mother, Grandmother and Friend, but give them the strength to be by her side and to be supportive of her through it all no matter what and they will cherish the moments of clarity that come and go that they were there to witness. It helps I hear to remind patients with dementia of past pleasant memories and knowing someone myself with dementia I know it works on him to reduce his outburst of violent behavior due to frustration, Father so I pray they will try this and it will help them to subdue Celeste's anger and outbursts over her situation too. Bring calmness to Celeste and send the Holy Spirit to aide her in her final days. We pray this for Celeste and Her family and friends in the name of Your Most HOly and Precious Son, Christ Jesus, Our Saviour and Lord, Abba Father, We love You with all our Hearts and Soul and We give You all the Honor, Glory and Praise for The Blessings You bestow on Celeste, Her Family and Friends, and on Us each and everyday, now, past and future, and we Bless You with Joy Love and Peace. Amen and Amen.
Praise be to God in the Highest.

I would first like to thank Jesus for all that he has done for me. I know he is with me and hears me. I just need some prayers for help to get out of this financial crisis that I am in. I don't want to loose my home, which I have been having a hard time making my mortgage payments and other monthly bills. I just can't seem to get ahead and need the strength of others prayers. Thank you and praise you lord for everything. Sherry

Glory Be to YOU Almighty,
You have touched the hearts and minds of many worldwide that live for the opportunity to help someone like my sister by faith, Celeste. Although she sincerely NEEDS to feel your presence Holy Spirit to KNOW that there are some things we simply can not do anymore. Yes, Yes Acceptance is one of my growing victories. Like Celeste seems to be, I once stood at the feet of Jesus crying WHY? Thank you Almighty, Thank you for being there with us no MATTER what. . . Please Assure Celeste's loving children that this too shall past for her. Holy Spirit feel there hearts with the TRUE meaning of unconditional LOVE for their mother is only doing what I once done. She is hurt mostly by the fact that changes have physically come into her life and she can not be the mother she WANTS/DESIRES to be, I KNOW from observance not living motherhood and the HONOR comes from you Almighty. Therefore, until she rest assure they are FINE with her as a disabled mother, (Holy Spirit PLEASE touch her)there will be gloomy days for everyone. Father, I hear the cries of others like me, within this request time, Please help us also. For you are the only one that can bring PEACE into our hearts, minds and spirits. In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen

Dear Lord
I am praying for two family members today. First is my Aunt Sally but called Sis since we are so close & close in age. She has ben diagnosed with Kidney Cancer as of yesterday. More tests will reveal whether they find more cancer & if so they cannot remove infected kidney but if clear she will have kidney removed first of April, remove the tumor if possible & replace or may not. She has suffered excruciating pain and illnes in a variety of areas with no answers for years and held the faith steadfastly. She also , in the past year, cared for her ailing husband who made it through multiple life threatening surgeries, now cancer free; cared for and said goodbye to her Brother and Sister both with cancer with no complaints and total faith in God. Her whole life has been caring for others, family or friends relying on God throughout. Now I pray you, dear Lord, will be there for her with your love & healing if it be your will.. I am ill and 2000 miles away so cannot get there..
Then my cousin's next to youngest daughter being checked for liver cancer She is a young Mother of 2, in the medical profession and other than severe lower back pain had no warning. I am thanking you for listening to my requests and will honor your decisions. In Jesus name..Amen

I LIFT UP THIS FAMILY TO LORD. HELP HER TO COPE WITH THIS VERY DIFFICULT SITUATION OF ABANDONMENT. I ALSO WENT THRU THIS WITH MY MOTHER WHO WAS ON LIFE SUPPORT FOR THREE YEARS AND FELT LIKE WE HAD ABANDONED HER. IT IS VERY DIFFICULT BEING THE FAMILY MEMBER WHO HAS NO CONTROL OVER THE SITUATION TO BE BLAMED FOR PUTTING THE MOTHER IN A FACILITY FOR CARE. IT IS DIFFICULT FOR THE PARENT WHO HAS BEEN CONFINED IN A FACILITY FOR CARE AS NO ONE WANTS TO BE IN SUCH A PLACE AT THE END OF THEIR LIFE. PLEASE LORD HELP THIS WHOLE FAMILY IN THIS VERY DIFFICULT SITUATION.

AMEN

Father God, I come to You now in the precious Name of Jesus, asking for Your miraculous, powerful, loving and healing touch to come upon Celeste. Make her whole and complete in You. May every fiber of her being, line up with Your Word. Dementia is just a "name" of a disease. But Jesus' Name is above ALL names. Therefore, Dementia must bow and flee at the Name of Jesus. I thank You, Lord, that she will forever be in her right mind. I thank You that she will not resist her children for them having to place her in a nursing home. I thank You that she will walk in her healing so she will be able to live an independent life, according to Your Will. I bind up Satan, his demons and evil schemes he's planned for Celeste by the authority given unto me by Christ Jesus. I loose healing, peace of mind and restoration in Celeste's life. I thank You that her children will not take to heart the hurtful things their mother is saying right now, for she is not in her right mind at the moment. I thank You for giving them all increased strength, comfort, peace and patience to endure this difficult ordeal, until Celeste's healing is manifested in Jesus' Name. Amen.

If you ever need prayer or just want to talk, feel free to email me at Lmbookerossie@yahoo.com
