Please pray for my step daughter Jess - she is 17 yrs and is really gone off the ropes. She is dating a druggie, and she stormed out a few days ago after she was told to apologise to her mother/brother for her behaviour. She is out there somewhere, and we just want her home for Christmas! Being the typical 17 yr old, we threw out all our encyclopedias (because she knew everything-ha ha), and we are all wrong, she is right, and her way is the only way! Yes, there are times we have failed her as parents - and she has been told so-but she seems determined that her way of life is the only way, and because it goes against our principles, she has decided to walk out, and them blame us saying that we 'threw her out' when we never said that. Being a step dad is hard, and I pray each night for her (and my wife, step son, and son). I pray they will all find the true path - though my four year old is on the right path-each night we say the Jesus Prayer together, plus a few requests thrown in. It is not the best time of the year to have this happen, but we have rules/principles that we expect our children to follow. prayers are appreciated!! Any step parents out there with similar problems???
