Skip to comments.In return for some prayers, may I share a musical blessing?

A loved one is in turmoil. He's a young loved one and he's an Iraq Army Vet.
I can't pray specifically, just that he gets some wisdom and some peace pretty quickly. And I pray God will help him find his true home.
Thanks for the prayers.
I believe the blessing comes with selfless prayer.
Has he gone to the VA...there are now excellant programs for help.
I believe that some vets are concerned about seeking help because it might prevent them from getting future jobs.
Trust me...I can’t be anymore selfless.
I am powerless here. I have done everything I can do.
This involves young, stupid people. But it’s time for the YOUNG STUPID person to wake up.
Family has been so supportive...but we just can’t fix it.
Prayers. God bless.
Thank you. I would ping a prayer group and I am sometimes pinged here for prayers, but I don’t know a prayer group.
I’m just asking ... at a moment of complete trial ... for prayers for my loved one.
You are right. You can’t fix it. Only God can fix it. Maybe it’s time to let go and let God. Trite I know, but true. I will pray for God to intervene.
I *did* let go.
I’m the Godmother. I let go. I can’t do more.
All that I can ask for are prayers. Is it wrong to ask for prayers?
I’m not familiar with the ping groups, though I do pray.
I need you here.
WJ...Brad’s Gramma has a prayer ping, which is why I pinged her. Will pray that your loved one finds peace and for you to have God’s blessings to help him.
I have helped him to the tune of a lot of money.
Where he is, apparently, is not good ... but he doesn’t have his guns.
His car is here. I towed the belongings back.
He went back to where he’s in the National Guard.
We thought he had changed his station....but there’s also a ... woman out there.
And...he left his 5 year old daughter (I originally went to just get her...but HE decided he wanted me to bring him home...) So, we have ONE of his kids...the mother is ANOTHER story. She gives her kids away...she had TWO before she met him and gave them up to the father...my nephew has THREE with her and she just gave the oldest girl away to my brother and SIL...
I’m an idiot.
I feel like such an idiot...but...
WHAT ELSE COULD I DO? It’s family.
Thank you for the blessing in song. Those girls are good.
Not wrong to ask for prayers. As you say, that is all you can do when you have done all you can do. May the Lord ease your heart and give you peace of mind in the midst of the storms.
Gramma, your wisdom and prayers are needed here.
I scared that this is going to harm my brother. I love him so much.
My SIL is handicapped and he has upping blood pressure.
My niece is terrific... she never does ANYTHING wrong and she is helping take care of her niece.
My nephew SHOULD be a man...but he’s not... he acts like a kid.
My brother asked me to go get my great-niece because he couldn’t afford it. He’s a working man...but they have piled money into their house and ..
it’s a long story. We just need your prayers.
Hey, Prayer Warriors....please read the thread, the WHOLE thread....and pray for this Vet and his Grandma...
Thanks, everyone, for the pings...even though I didn’t see this till now. ;(
You are NOT an “idiot” for trying to help!!!
I have a friend who’s SORT of in a situation like this...and yeah, it’s been WAY beyond hard for she & her husband....unless people have walked in your shoes they have NO idea, do they?
Like you said..IT’S FAMILY and you do what you do! You do the best you can with the resources you have..and you pray, and you help.
Plain. And. Simple.
Prayers lifted for your loved one.
