URGENT PRAYER NEEDED!!

Recommended Posts

I have been asking prayer for my parents on here for a while.....basically my dad is elderly and a heart patient, my mother is deep in to mental illness.Dad had been trying to just deal with it and endure but things came to a head yesterday and my seventy-three year old father walked out and is staying with a relative. One of my mother's closest confidants called my brother and said she fears for my dad's life. My siblings and I met this morning and signed papers to have her committed to a mental ward for evaluation. They will pick her up and take her there this afternoon. PLEASE PRAY!!! We need for my mother to be evaluated properly. We need for the doctor who works with her to get a clear understanding of what is going on. We do not want her to walk out of this experience fooling the health care professionals. AND, since she has spent the last twenty-four hours calling every friend and relative she can think of to give them her skewered point of view, we need the Holy Spirit to open these peoples minds to the truth and not let them be decieved by her. She can be very convincing. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

I will be praying. Rest assured that the doctors deal with cases like your mother and worse so they will know what to do and not get fooled. God loves your mother more than you and the family could ever love her. He is placing her in the correct hands that will get her the help that she needs. This is where faith comes in.

God is faithful. Praying for all of you...

Just an update; my mother's therapist called yesterday and said my mother was starting to respond to treatment BUT my aunt called this morning. Apparently my mother called her last night and my aunt warned me that my Mom sounded really erratic and almost worse than before. PLEASE pray that her doctors will pick up on if she is faking it to get out!!!
ALSO, my DAD has been physically sick from the stress of it all. He is so hopeful that this will cure my mother and thay she will come home well. I am so afraid for him that he is going to be greatly hurt and disappointed. PLEASE pray for his health and well-being and also that God give us direction in whatever decisions we have to make. THANK YOU!!!

UPDATE!! We are meeting with my mother's therapist in the morning. We will be getting her actual diagnosis and treatment options. We will be having face time with my mother for the first time since we committed her. We need prayers to be able to handle it all with grace. We need prayers for traveling mercies as we will all be on the road from 2 to 4 hours (one way) to the treatment facility. My Dad is going with us and my mother is not happy about seeing him. He needs the comfort of the Holy Spirit to envelope him.
BUT thank you for recent prayers!! The therapist is aware of my mother's phone calls to friends and she knows what my mother has been saying.

Update.....we met with my mother's therapist and my mother. I wish I could say things went well but they did not. Although the therapist told us our mother's diagnosis and that it is severe, she appeared to be enabling my mother more than anything. Our mother was worse than we have ever seen her, quite belligerant that there was nothing wrong with her. Now our father isn't just the villian, we are as well. She is going to live with one of my brothers for a couple of weeks until what? We aren't even sure where we go from here. Our elderly father will need much care and help, which is a labor of love, and our mother needs us although her terms are pretty plain....choose your dad or me, no middle ground. That is not even an option. Please pray that God will give us wisdom and grace in dealing with this issue. Thank you.

Sorry for the late response to this. I assure you I have been praying since I first read your post. Im so sorry things didn't go as well as you had hoped for. Please be encouraged, God is still on the scene, even if it seems He isnt. I know that through this, God will somehow take this mess your mom has made and will turn it out for His glory for you and your family (Rom 8:28). Im continuing to pray for you and your family. Please continue to update us how things progress. May The Lord bless you and your family, and continue to strengthen and uplift each one of you.

Thank you Daisy!! I called my mother yesterday and she seems to be doing better since she started on the meds. She is possibly planning on moving back home with my dad this weekend. They saw each other for about 30 minutes last Thursday and he said she seemed much like her old self. She was even smiling and he said it made him realize that he hadn't seen her smile in years. Please continue to keep them in prayer. She is starting to realize that she does have a mental condition and that she is going to have to work at getting better. But we don't want her saying all the right stuff just to get back home, either. Her particular disorder is quite deceptive. Thank you so much again!!

Just an update....my mother has been back home with my dad for the last few weeks and is doing well. She is staying on her meds and seeing her therapist and when I talk to her I can hear the real her talking back. Our family still needs a lot of healing. Although she treats Dad well (a huge improvement!!), she still does not respond with love toward him. And there is a distance between her and us (my siblings and I) due to the nature of getting her treated. Please just pray that God would heal the relationships that have been damaged by her mental illness. Thank you so much!!

I agree.

Am praying and thanking God that He is great at mending broken hearts, broken relationships, and broken people. Thank you Father that you are even now doing a work in this family and doing it supernaturally.
