Hello, all.

My best friend gets in fights with her mother often.  I do not know if they get physical (though I wouldn't doubt it).

This family is very poor.

My friend has run away several times, but only for a few days (she's 17).  She is now living at a soup kitchen/halfway house in town.  It took us a long time to track her down, but thank God she is safe.

She really needs prayers.  It sounds as though her mother is abusive, but I can't be certain.

To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.

Do not want things to turn out as they seem best to you, but as God pleases. Then you will be free from confusion, and thankful in prayer.
