Teenager needs God’s guidance

by Jacqueline (Alabama)

My eighteen year old cousin came to live with me to finish high school. The circumstances and stress of his home life kept him from going to school and being able to take care of himself. The environment he was wrapped up in was one of drugs, jail, and the wrong kind of people. His parents are separated and his mother has a record of drugs and jail. His brother is in and out of jail. He stayed with me a month and left abruptly leaving me a note that he could not handle the stress of not knowing what was going on at home. He loves his mother dearly but she does not look out after his well being. He is now back in the poor environment and quit school again because he feels responsible for her. He only has 3 credits left to get his diploma but he cannot seem to focus on his needs.

I am asking for prayers that God guide him to make the right decisions to keep him focused on taking care of himself so he can take care of others. Also pray that God guides him and provides him strength to stay and live above the evil that surrounds him thus he will not get pulled down into depression, drugs, or any other crime that surrounds him. He has a good heart.

  1. The power of prayer

    The power of prayer will find him and heal him. He will find his voice and realize how precious he is to you and to our Lord in heaven. He will use his circumstance to reach out to others and help them on their journey. For we claim him in the name of our Lord Jesus Our Friend Our Savior
