Title: A Prayer for a Girl Who Needs Help
Post by: PeaceSerenity on July 16, 2009, 10:56:57 PM
Please pray for a teenage girl I recently met who is Manic Depressive, bulimic, has suicidal tendencies, cuts herself, has suffered abuse as a child, and doesn't seem to see her worth in the world. Her mother doesn't seem to love her and she really suffers because of that. Pray to God that she will not hurt herself and He will enlighten her.

Lord, have mercy on Your dear child and her mother!


 According to a friend and former 'cutter', the act of 'cutting' oneself on purpose (self-mutilation) is probably more widespread than we might think.

I saw some severely depressed kids among my students... it really is a huge problem.

 O, the Lord of Lords, You who have told us through the Golden Mouth of the Saint Anthony of our time, Elder Porphyrius,that You are the only healer of our souls, our minds, and our spirits, and that the "psychological" turmoil is the easiest to cure, please keep away from your beloved child the demons of akedia and athymia, and grant her the Uncreated Grace of the Holy Spirit, so that she can bear in her shattered soul Its unique holy fruits, which are peace, serenity, joy, love and transform her despair into charmolypi and the blessed spiritual pain and comsuming fire of compassion of your Saints.......
