Family Situation 1 My son, Joshua, has to drop out of junior college (senior high school) coz of schizophrenia. His mental health started to give way about 5 years ago & had to take long MC leave from school. He returned to school this year but had to terminate his schooling abruptly as his condition deteriorated, despite intense medical treatment, such as, undergoing 2 cycles of ECT (2014 to treat his suicidal tendencies; 2 weeks ago(early December 2015) to treat his moods) by a reputable psychiatrist in Singapore. It has been extremely draining & threatening to us his caregivers as he has a tendency to vent his irrational anxiety about his fears of anti-Christ, spies & pastors reporting badmouthing about him to our Singapore government. He would often accuse us of lying when we try our best to re-assure or rationalize with him and ended up being attacked by him. Just this week, we have called the police to assist us coz he had threatened to punch me and kill his father. We are torn between sending him away to an asylum coz our lives could be endangered by his uncontrollable rage, or keeping him wiz us by counseling/rationalising with him & risking our lives in the process. But locking him up in an asylum would mean depriving him of Sunday church attendance. Both my husband & I are very financially drained & stressed. We are at our wits� end. I believe in God�s healing power. Joshua present condition causes him to misinterpret the bible altogether, so he has stopped reading The Word. My husband, Benjamin, is a backslider and does not attend church. He indulges regularly in geomancy (a method of divination that interprets markings on the ground or siting of buildings & observation of dates & timings for luck). So I am seriously wondering if Joshua�s mental condition has something to do with this conflicting belief. My other son, Seng, has been under tremendous pressure to perform in the National Uni of Singapore as a Year 3 (final year) Science student as he is under Singapore government scholarship. But he is very much distressed by his brother�s unstable mental condition & lacks peace of mind to study. This is worsened by the fact that he is finding the going very challenging as Pure Maths isn�t really his cup of tea. He has been getting borderline results despite our prayers for him to excel. He is so stressed up that he even hears negative vibes about him from fellow students & members of the public. I am afraid he is hallucinating, like his brother Joshua. If his results continue to slide, he may not qualify for Honours year after this final year, & it is a requirement for him to do Honours year under the terms of the scholarship. If he loses his scholarship for not doing honours year, I have to pay back the government what we owe. 1) Pl kindly support me with prayer for Benjamin�s salvation/deliverance & Joshua�s total healing. We desperately need Joshua to recover so that he can be an independent, functioning & productive person. Both Benjamin & myself are getting on in age & we cannot be caring for Joshua forever. Thank you. 2) For God to intervene in Seng�s mental health & academic performance by excelling & qualifying for Honours; that we won�t be made to pay back the government Seng�s scholarship money. Career/Workplace Situation 2 I am teaching at a junior college. I have a superior who is younger than I am & who is not at all appreciative of me or value my experience in the subject area (Project Work) that I am teaching in. In fact I have been given a D ranking (barely meeting expectation) by this head of department for 4 years during my annual performance appraisal despite my effort to meet her expectations or the brilliant results my students have been obtaining at the Cambridge �A� Levels exam (senior high level). She finds faults in every area, such as, lack of engagement during my PW lecture, etc. Nothing that I do would ever be enough coz of this blatant nit-picking. It is getting very stressful & demoralizing. I realize too late that I should have asked for a transfer to another junior college earlier but I actually enjoyed the school & the students. The Principal & the Vice-Principal are hinting that I should quit the teaching service altogether next year which is prior to my retirement. I cried out to my God & ask why, Lord, that He promoted me to this high rank only for me to be degraded by a younger superior/Head of Department, who is disparaging behind close door review of my work performance. I have never been threatened so much by job insecurity before. I am quite close to getting my retirement pension but they heartlessly indicated that it is not their concern whether I should wait until my pension is due for collection as I am not good enough to stay on in the college. 3) Please pray for help to deliver me from this dilemma, that the higher up (Principal) will eventually see my strengths & will not sack me when she comes in to evaluate my performance in 2016 since I pointed out to her that the �D� has not been an objective rating. I am very upset & afraid. I need a miracle. I can see that this is a spiritual warfare targeting my finances. I need the retirement money to support my family (my backslidden husband, Benjamin, is jobless & has a heart problem & son Joshua who needs psychiatric attention for mental problems) & the entire performance appraisal is highly subjective & skewed. I hope to apply a transfer all the same to another junior college in 2016 without any obstacles caused by the 4 years of �D� rating or their adverse report of my performance. I desperately need God�s divine intervention to allow me to continue teaching & earn an income so that I would not forfeit my retirement pension at 62 years old by being �robbed� by Satan, the accusing devourer.

I need a Christmas miracle from Jesus.I'm Jenny in Milwaukee, Wi. Please pray that our Heavenly Father restores my relationship with Brian. I need Brian to come back to me. I'm very miserable, and lonely. I need to be happy in my heart again. We were going to get married and everything. It was my fault, I falsely accused him of doing stuff that wasn't true. I know that Jesus brought Brian in my life in the first place, he is a very good kind man. I need me and Brian together again. Jesus knows what's in my heart, and how much this means to me. Jesus comes first in my heart, and Brian second, Brian is my family. I can't live like this any longer, I can't bear being without him. I cry none stop every day and night. It feels like my soul was ripped in half. I love Brian that much. I haven't felt like this since my mom passed 20yrs ago, and she was my best friend. Could you please agree with me in prayer that Brian comes back in my life asap? And ask others to pray for this too? Please? Because Jesus said "When two or more gathered", and "that two of you agree on earth concerning anything they ask , it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. Matt 18:19. Thank you so very much for everyone's prayers.

Hello Brothers and Sisters in Christ. I would like to request prayer for me and my family. I'm a single mother of 4 precious children by whom the Lord has Blessed me with. I recently got evicted and lost my vehicle. I get little help from my 3 eldest children's dad and get no help at all from my youngest child dad. I have been searching and calling for resources for a place to go and there hasn't been any available. I'm Trusting God and when He opens doors I will Testify of His Greatness and Marvelous works. Thanks you in advance for your prayers. God Bless you all.

I am the only Christian in my family, who is broken. My sister and brother who are adults do not want anything to do with us and them along with my parents have been lead astray. I pray they find God, and our family is healed. My family is very cynical of God and I just want them to find His love and all the drama and tears be stopped. We need a miracle and I pray that we will end up being together for Christmas.

God has called me in the most clear and fantastic way to minister to those with chronic illness and chronic pain. I'm in a very personal position to do so, and my friends, Don and Cecil, feel, after prayer, this is my calling. Will you please pray that the website I'm creating, www.bruisesandbutterflies.net, will be a tool God uses to bring those suffering with affliction the following: hope, joy, a sense of not being along in the process of living, peace and, above all, surrender to Him. I've struggled with this because it requires making myself vulnerable to an unknown number of people, sharing my own struggles, and I'm... Okay, I'm afraid. But God has laid this in me like He's planted a root of conviction and it's growing and spreading and I know in my knower that this is right. Thank you for your prayers. The website is still under construction, but it will accompany a book, my memoir, that will be written pieces at a time: Today, I Choose Joy: The Memoir of a Broken Body and Joyous Heart. It's a faith-based book on trusting God and letting go. It's so important to me that people not believe they're suffering alone or that God is someone "punishing" them. Thank you for adding me to your prayer list. I know God s moving. My job is to keep up.
