Prayer for son
« on: October 08, 2010, 08:34:45 PM »
My son was recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder.  He was incredibly manic two months ago - a swing that lasted nearly six months.  His doctor is not cooperating with him and he cannot afford to see a psychiatrist.  His psychologist is a very caring and apt gentleman, but is also very frustrated with the primary care physicians lack of treatment to find the proper meds to be on. 

He's swinging up to manic again is suddenly terrified of the world for his son and wife. 

Please pray. 

Thank you, everyone.
In His Mercy,
BethAnna

Thank you everyone for your prayers - my son and his family (wife and year old son) is coming up tomorrow to stay with us for a few days.

He and his family will be staying in my office/guest-room where my prayer corner is.  May the angels that minister in this room as I pray also minister to him and his family while he is here - and go with him when he leaves.
In His Mercy,
BethAnna

Lord have mercy!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

May I please refresh this prayer request. . .I just got off the phone from talking to my son.  He's been manic for months - has stopped taking his medication, stopped seeing his therapist, is telling me that abandoning his son, wife is of no avail that if it happens, it's supposed to. 

I know his come down is coming. . .the last time he came down from his mania he was horrified at the damage he did while so ill. 

Please pray.

Lord have mercy on Casey. . .please have mercy.  +
In His Mercy,
BethAnna
