You know and love our Mason so much. You placed him in our family to love and nurture; you took him out of an unhealthy environment and transplanted him into our family. Sometimes I just don’t know what to do to help him. I feel so overwhelmed and at a loss. My heart aches to see him struggle and my heart aches because it is tiring for me to parent him. I know you have given me the tools to raise him, but I grow weary at times. Please give me your strength so that I may love and be a witness of your love, not just to M, but to those who interact with us. I want you to be glorified. Please help me make the right decision of medication for him. Please guide me in the right direction and apply your piece and peace to the right decision. Perhaps medication is not the solution, please guide me to what will help. Thank you dear Jesus for hearing my prayers. I love you. AmypattysyellowbusPrayers: 766Requests: 10

Abba, Father! Hallowed be Your Name! We walk in Your Kingdom today and desire to do Your will as it is done in heaven. We stand beside dear Amy today – our sister – who has followed You and taken into her heart her dear Mason. Answer her prayer today, for wisdom and strength, O Lord, allow her to sense that she is doing Your Will and walking in the path that You have laid out for her. Specifically, Jesus, she needs Your help in making a decision about Mason’s medication. Lord, You know what is best for Mason – give her wisdom, discernment and understanding. Grant to dear Amy, clarity in these fuzzy places and allow her to walk in Your confidence. We love You, Lord!gsimoninPrayers: 2032Requests: 17

Standing in agreement with these prayers, Lord. We ask for wisdom on behalf of this loving mom, Amy, for her sweet son, Mason. Help her understand how to best parent him. Give her rest and refreshment from the daily challenges.
Amy – I encourage you to continue praying for wisdom. Our Father says that if we lack wisdom – don’t we all? – all we have to do is ask, and He will give us some. Keep asking. I have seen Him answer similar prayers in ways that could not be imagined. He is faithful!
Years ago, one of our son’s classmates was a kid who could not keep still or quiet in class. Ever. It didn’t matter what was said to him, or what discipline was meted out. He just couldn’t do it. It was annoying at best. Eventually, he was only allowed at school for 3 hours in the morning: 1 hour in the classroom and 2 hours in the Principal’s office. The mom had been advised to give medication to her son. She didn’t want to do this. So this pattern went on for several years. Eventually, she was at her last rope and decided to give him the medicine. Afterward, her son was able to be calm, and quiet – like he had never been before. And his comment to his mom was that he was so thankful to be able to have control over his body and mind. I’m not telling you this story to say that this is the right decision for you. I don’t know. I do know the One who can give you the wisdom to make this decision and I pray this for you. ~ gailfelixculpa723Prayers: 887Requests: 4

Heavenly Father, I thank and praise you for this beautiful prayer and for the open heart of this mother. Amy has laid her heart on your altar of prayer, and we can’t but feel total empathy for her as the mother you intentionally and divinely chose to parent this son. I am so thankful to you that our kinship with you is never sweeter or stronger than when our resources are exhausted. I stand beside Amy along with the gathering of prayer warriors who form a circle of prayer on behalf of this child, your creation, one you will never leave or forsake. Father, pour your wisdom on Amy’s heart and mind, as well as the physicians and other professionals she consults about her son. Lord, you know the needs of this child better than we ever could. I pray that you will show the next step forward to Amy, and give her peace as she acts on this decision. Protect and defend this child , we pray in the name of Jesus. I ask that you would find avenues to heal this child of any known or unrevealed afflictions, or early childhood trauma that is contributing to his behavior. Lord, I pray for an overflowing of your grace, compassion and love that Amy needs to face even another day with this child. I pray that you would encourage Amy that these days of discouragement and uncertainty are all part of your plan for her life, and for the life of her son. Precious Lord, I thank you and praise you that forever and for always we are first your sons and your daughters.
