    O Lord, my Lord, my faithful and wonderful counselor. My faith is that I just know you are going to manifest your glory in my boy's life.

    I ask that you look upon my son Christopher and bless him. He needs you! Heal his wounded heart and convince him of his true worth and value which is only found in you. Chris is a treasure and a parents' dream. He works; pays his bills on time; saves his money; cares for others and helps others, and he is so loving, smart, intelligent and handsome.

    A dangerous pattern has developed in Chris' dating a week then move-in relationships ... 3 girls in the past 6 years... and each one a damsel in distress, while he's their knight in shining armor. But all of these girls have been abusive verbally with screaming - excessive drinking to the point of passing out - Chris was never raised in an environment like that. We strove for peace in our home. He admitted he has ownership also in making relational mistakes - what he calls "anger issues" and "low self esteem".

    Lord, you are there when he talks to us. He second-guesses his worthiness - and searches for some magic fix that will make the girl love him. He wants so to be loved by a wife, but it seems he has become a kind of target - as though these girls sense in him someone they can get something from. 2 of the 3 had been kicked out of their homes and were sleeping on friends' sofas when Chris met them. And all 3 must have seen his big heart and took advantage.

    Lord, save these girls. Rescue them and bring them into the kingdom of heaven!

    Chris has been honest and forthcoming with us; talking for hours and trying hard to understand WHY. It breaks my heart. Chris belongs to you, Lord, and he knows You are Lord even if he hasn't talked to you in a while.

    Jesus, you saw what happened when I married his father. His mother didn't come to see him or for 4 months. She repeatedly abandoned him until he was 14 and she stopped contacting him altogether. The last 3 years, his mother has reached out to him, but only to ask for help or money, and he has given her money and tried to help her.

    The girls Christopher falls for, he really wants to rescue - could he be trying to rescue his mother or win her love by proxy through a girl that reminds him of her?

    Lord, Chris told us several times last week and tonight that he "really struggles with low self esteem and anger". He is desperate for a certain kind of love, and he is an amazing catch! But Lord, he is in the wrong pond! Get him to the right pond and throw him in!

    I speak life into my son's world! I am the Lord's ambassador; therefore, what I say, He has said. I bind the enemy's plans to wound my son any further; they will not succeed! I say what my Lord has said, that He abides in me - He abides in Christopher - just as we abide in Him, and that the Lord will not dwell in the same house with the enemy! Therefore, devil of lies; spirit of shame, and spirit of confusion: The Lord says that you have to leave my son and not return!

    Lord Jesus, fill Chris with the knowledge of your Word again. Replace what the devil has stolen - replace it and make it clear to Chris that You have intervened when he was in despair - that You have never been ashamed of him and that your love is immovable. Be made strong in his weakness!


    Lord, draw him away from these people he thinks are friends. He hates and refuses to touch drugs. But his friends are using drugs and alcohol more and more - partying regularly, and Christopher feels he wants to cut his ties with them. He is right. He doesn't belong there! He belongs back in church; meeting Christian people and making friends; joining life groups and finding others he can confide in.

    Lord, rescue his friends and save them from the peril they run to. Scoop them up and make them to know the love of Christ in their hearts!

    Lord, I ask that Chris do his part to work with You and your Word toward the renewing of his mind. Be all over this, Lord! Be the Therapist, and let Chris as well as his therapist hear from you.

    Enlighten Christopher's understanding about grace, redemption, God's faithfulness, sin battles, spiritual battles, and what your Word says about his worth and value in Christ.

    You answered the prayers of other women in the bible.

    I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him. 1 Samuel 1:27

    He gives the barren woman a home, making her the joyous mother of children. Praise the LORD! Psalm 113:9

    Make me a joyous mother again. I love him like he is my own son, and I am his mother. He is witty and funny and makes people laugh all the time. But he has been unhappy for so long now. Remember Lord, Chris was always witnessing to his friends in high school. They were just drawn to him, and he eventually filled up 2 whole pews with young people... the pastor told us Chris had an anointing, and just like that, he bolted and ran from you.

    Lord, what is the calling on his life? Why does he travel BESIDE the path that You have laid for him? How did the enemy get Chris so gaslighted? He hears lies from satan. Satan is a liar and the father of lies. My son is the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus!

    You are the Healer and the Redeemer! You are God! You are the Word! You created the universe and set every star and planet just right so that mankind can live and thrive on Earth and worship you. You made us in your image. Christopher is like you.

    Lord, this desperate need for love at any price is the enemy's false version of love, and he has set traps for Chris. Spring those traps before Chris ever gets close to them and instead, let him find you.Let Chris know you in a deep and intimate way.

    “You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.” Isaiah 26:3

    When he has been drawn close, Lord, pull him or yank him the rest of the way back into the light!

    Give Chris a Christian wife who seeks wisdom; a gentle soul with her priorities straight and who will love him with the love of Christ. Let Chris know joy in becoming more and more an example of Christ toward his wife and toward the children he will have.

    Let his wife illustrate the strength and faithfulness of Christ's bride; the Church. Let them find in each other the many many ways of finding You. Give Chris friends who never tear him down or participate in destructive lifestyles.

    Change his world! Turn him back - run to him and fall on his face. Kiss him. Celebrate. Bless him. And rejoice, my Lord! Fill his heart and soul and mind with oil of joy for his mourning and give him beauty for his ashes.

    Teach your precious Christopher how to abide in peace - even through all his struggles. In Jesus' name, I pray AMEN.

    Yes, and ask God to show how he already answered your prayer.

    Mark 11:24
    Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

    Matthew 6:8
    Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.

    I will join you in prayer for your dear son.

    I teared up when I read this. I used to love women with a desperate love, wanting to fix them so they would love me back, and fix me in return.

    Chris will turn out fine, no matter how long it takes. God is good, and He will build something strong and everlasting where our own castles fall. And if Chris has even one person in his life who loves him with the kind of unconditional love that's obvious from what you wrote, it's a blessing that can't be denied. Love like that will eventually find its way and it will do what love does best: heal, restore and rejoice with its object.

    Amen. Yes!
    Jeremiah 29:12-13; "Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart."

    Psalm 66:17-20 - "I cried out to him with my mouth; his praise was on my tongue. If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened; but God has surely listened and has heard my prayer. Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me!"

    Thanks everyone for your encouragement and prayers. I guess I was a little overwrought last night. We just had no idea his life was this way until he poured his heart out to us the last two weekends. I believe my awesome son will find his life going in a direction he never dreamed possible - once he makes the decision to surrender and come back to the Lord.
    Thank you for praying. Love to all!

    I pray for peace and healing for Chris' low self esteem and anger issues. I pray he will be led away from those who would drag him down, and be led to someone who will be a good influence on him.
