My 19 year old son has Covid-he's saying it's the worst sickness he's experienced. Our family needs prayers that my son is able to get the Paxlovid, the Covid antiviral ASAP. There is a difficulty coordinating doctors orders to get the prescription, and him being in a college that doesn't usually deal with this augments the problem. Also, I can't just "drive down" and pick him up! So...please prayers that he gets the Paxlovid pills easily and quickly...and that he recovers strongly from this in body and spirit. Thank you everyone! Erin and her beautiful daughter...and now me and my son!

I am requesting prayers for my 18 year old son. He has been challenged with mild depression at times, but is a happy and beautiful soul. He has made some choices this past year that has not made him happier. I had a dream recently that he was backing up a train, but was going too fast and hit a wall with it. My husband and I are giving him all the support we can...and things are on the upswing for my son. I just ask for God's grace and guidance from Him, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and Mary and all the angels that we get my son to a happy healthy place. I really pray my son's faith in God is restored (my son said it was damaged after we had to take care of my brother in law who had had a minor stroke and had major mental health issues). The dark energy that came thru my brother in law while he was with us really threw our family communication for a loop and my son is still recovering. Anyway: please pray for my son that his communication with God heals fully and pray that whatever the "backing up of the train" I saw in my dream is safe and not recklessly done. I am so grateful for you all.

I earlier wrote about an amazing young Lakota man (Brandon Ferguson) in Pine Ridge reservation that organized funding a new home for a destitute family and also helped an elderly grandfather living in a condemned trailer. The frail elderly grandfather got a hole in the ceiling of his trailer patched, his (broken and leaking frigid air windows) replaced, new (used) furniture, painted his place and fixed many other things. This was done with enthusiastic help of others in the community. Recently the Elder was brutally assaulted, was left bleeding out and the assailant was found just watching him and sitting on his couch. There is so much hope rising as a result of this young man galvanizing the community, but the darkness does not want change. Please pray for this Elder. Pray for the community to come together to make a stand for the light to take hold more strongly in this community. They deserve it and need it so much.

I've come across a young man, Brandon Ferguson, who is Lakota Sioux and lives in a very poor town in Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. In the past couple of weeks he has organized and inspired people in his area (Native and non-Native) to help an extremely poor disabled Elder and an almost destitute loving family of Elders who are taking care of their grandkids. They had no heat besides a wood burning stove, plastic over windows, blankets on walls for insulation, no running water, no toilet besides an outhouse (and more). Also, the temperatures have been -10 and the wind chills have been -25 degrees F. This is not (sadly) unheard of--what is new is that this young man is galvanizing enthusiasm among his neighbors. Almost all the comments by his fellow Native people on his Facebook show strong hope and enthusiasm for change. Please pray that this energy of change, hope and practical concrete steps continue to grow like wildfire among the Native community there. Where non-Natives can help, let it be done with respect and efficiency. Let the Spirit of God come into this place and people in a new healing way. Guide Brandon and the people helping him (like Deb Wallenberg and her husband Jim).

Hello! I just wanted to say thank you to God and you all for praying for my family. A few weeks ago I posted about how my family was feeling like it was being attacked by negativity on a whole new level. I asked for support for my daughter who is a senior in college. She was in the worst depression, give up-ness and negativity that I had ever heard from her. She hadn't gone to class for 10 days and hadn't been able to get out of bed either! This is a girl who works out 6 days a week and has a high energy level. She was going to fail a class that she needed for graduation on time. Miracle of miracles--she faced her fears (I told her what Betty always says: "never give up!!!") , among other things, and she got back in the game! She started going to class and struggled but overcame the difficulties with her senior level computer programming class at a competitive college. I urged her to talk to a Counselor and she did. I told her we were praying for her too. In the midst of all that she actually said "yes" to a nice young man that had been asking her out and she is happily dating him--her first boyfriend and he is gracious, giving and wonderful to her. The change-I kid you not-is like night and day. I've known this girl for a long time (ha!) and I've never seen her come out of a funk this bad this fully and completely. Well, yesterday, she texted me that she passed the class and really did understand the material eventually....and is on track to graduate on time!! Whopeee! Thanks to God and all of you and Betty, Jeff and the whole family! This really is a miracle for me, knowing her and where she usually shoots herself in the foot. My husband has turned the corner too--he had been so scarily negative. I asked him what changed and he said "he gave all his problems to God". Again, thank God! Now.....my son is coming home today from college and he has a very mean person to separate from that hates me and my husband. I was feeling overwhelmed that she was going to destroy our communication with our son, but with all this progress, I know God has got our back! And all of you WAVES too, God bless you all. May your holidays hold miracles in your heart like mine feels right now.

Prayers are requested for peace, knowledge of God's will and the courage to act on it and let it all up to God at the end of the day. My teenage son is having difficulty with self image and has gotten into a toxic relationship with someone who we now see as a controlling person. I've spoken with this person kindly about not taking advantage of him or our family's space. We've helped this person out tremendously--helped buy them a car, get them into the local community college and other things. They need to stand on their own two feet now and did not take kindly to loving boundaries. This has not gone over well-and this person is trying to turn my son against me. I love and care for this person but it anguishes me that my son will not talk to me right now. (He originally asked me to contact them about a problem his friend had and I dealt with it from "the Spirit" I got in my heart when I asked God for help). The adversary seems to be at work and I ask for prayers for healing for my communication with my son and strength within my family.

It seems like the adversary is challenging my family on every level. My daughter needs emotional and spiritual strength to stay close to God and finish her last year of college in a successful way. My son needs protection and guidance to hear God that are tempting him with the "dark" side of music and gender issues. My husband has been putting out the worst negativity where he used to be fairly tuned into God and optimistic. I feel like we are under attack and it's a new level of watching my family struggle--we didn't used to be this vulnerable to negativity. Please pray for each one of us and that God's light infuses all our hearts and our communication with each other. I am so grateful for this space and you wonderful people. May God send you his support and love in every way!
