My youngest son and I have a broken relationship we are trying to mend. Our issues started last year he became involved with a young lady who was not the best influence and continues to cause problems even though they are no longer together. She has pushed him to the edge of suicide twice going so far as to tell him to kill himself because he’s pathetic, has even hit him while he was driving, and vandalized his car. I pray that whatever hold she has on him is broken so he can live in peace. Every time he starts to do good she pops back up with some sort of ploy to cause distress, the most recent was returning a jacket that belongs to my son, but it was a ploy front to flaunt her new boy toy in his face, and of course, she didn’t bring the jacket. I get upset when I think of the head games she plays with his fragile mental state, and I have stop and ask for forgiveness because of my thoughts. I love my son and want the best for him physically, psychologically, spiritually, and emotionally. Lord, help me to say the right words to my son, listen without responding, or becoming angry.
