Sara A
Prayer for a Troubled Teen

For teens who are having a hard time.

I have a close friend who is going through some very hard times. In her family and also within her life, she is having a lot of trouble adjusting to the changes she is experiencing.
Not only do I want to have this for her, I also wish that someone would pray for the teens growing up in todays world. I believe that god can help in mysterious ways and this is one of those ways.

3/5/2002-I found out today that she has found a place to get some help and will be getting some treatment. I can only think that this prayer circle had a lot to do with this happening

Tpdays world is hard to grow up in. Times are troubled enough to begin with. Extended families are spread all over the place and natural parents are more likely than not to be living apart. Teens NEED their parents whether teens or parents want to believe that. Teens, like everyone else, including parents need love. A parents love for their child must be unconditional though just like the love our father had for his son and all of us. Children aren't obligated by the unconditional love rule though. Teens make mistakes. Parents make mistakes. It is alright not to like the action of what either has done but you should still love the person. Jesus went through lviing hell and paid the ultimate, most horrible of prices so that we have second chances from our mistakes. Your friend must look within to find her way. There are all kinds of people who are all to ready to show her the way but the map to love and God is in her heart. She may have to drill through some scar tissue, hammer out some walls built up, and heal some bruises and wounds but if she keeps looking to someone or something to make her happy, she will never be whole. She must save herself. It is not easy, and there are no simple solutions but none of us grow up in a perfect world, we must play with the cards given us. She must first forgive herself and others, and learn to love the life she has. I would suggest guided imagery tapes/cds to learn just how to feel good about herself. While drugs and other treatments are beneficial and needed on a case by case basis, she needs to learn how to live her life valuing who she is. With friends like you who care, she will hopefully find her way.

Lord, watch over Sara A. It's been since 2002 since this has been updated, I only hope that she is better and filled with your love. Whatever she went through or is still going through, I only hope that you are making her the person that you designed her to become. In Jesus's name I pray, Amen.
