I’ve known my friend Cy for 12 years. He’s been a great friend through thick and thin. There has always been sadness surrounding his relationship with his mom (he is her only child and there’s no relationship with his father for either the mom or him). I assumed that it was typical run-of-the-mill family issues. Recently he revealed to me that his mom has paranoid schizophrenia. She is in her 70s and lives somewhat transiently (hard to keep track of her location). She does not see a doctor regularly and is not open to therapy or medication right now. She shows up at his home with little warning during her episodes (she lives on the opposite side of the country and will drive). More troubling is that her bizarre behaviors, including unplanned cross country travel by car (alone) are related to her “seeking spirituality” and wanting to feel loved and forgiven by God (his words). This has been tormenting both of them for a long time. They cannot have the type of relationship they both desire due to her untreated mental illness. He tries his best and feels a lot of guilt for not being closer to her. They are both spiritually minded people but not believers in Christ at this time. I let him know I would pray for this situation and he accepted and thanked me. Please join me in prayer for their deliverance, first and foremost. Please pray for his mom’s mental health, that she is open to seeking treatment. Please (more importantly) pray for her soul and that God intervenes and speaks to her and draws her near to Christ! Please pray for restoration, healing, forgiveness, and hope in their relationship. Please pray that God comforts my friend Cy as he deals with this without other family to help. Please pray that I can continue to be a supporting friend and prayer warrior for them both. Thank you.dwry0546Prayers: 7Requests: 3

Loving heavenly Father we come into agreement with these prayers for Cy, and his mother. We pray with urgency, our prayers for Cy, and his Cy’s mother’s salvation. Let this be the first priority. So much change happens in a persons life after they have accepted Jesus as Lord. So many strongholds disappear upon becoming a born again son, or daughter of God, when they are delivered from the power of darkness, and are translated into the Kingdom of God’s dear Son… Things change. We pray for her total deliverance from the devils influence that’s been holding her in bondage to mental illness. And we pray that both Cy and his mother, grow in the love and knowledge of the God who loves them so much. Father, bless Tiff, with wisdom as they continue to be a fisher of men toward their friend.
In Jesus name, we pray. Amen! 💓spiritdoc1Prayers: 5095Requests: 409
