Hey sorry for not being as active as I'd like to be in this community. But I have a big prayer request that I really need your help on.

In my bible study group I have this Christian friend, her name's Ruth, and she really needs a lot of prayer right now. Maybe I should explain a little more. Over this past year she's had several mental breakdowns and has been in-and-out of the hospital becuz of it. The devil has just been attacking her mind so badly, and it's been affecting her to the point where she'll have a breakdown, or even when she doesn't it shows in her appearance. I mean she'll be even shaky sometimes. My bible study group has been praying for her over this time, but we're not completely sure what's going on in her mind and why these attacks have been so bad. Some of us have gone to visit her in the hospital to pray with her, read her bible verses, talk with her, etc. But we don't even know if she's even listening to the things we say to her, if she's taking it in or not. She still believes in God and Jesus as her Lord and Saviour, but something in her mind is believing the lies of the enemy. Just recently she was out of the hospital and came to our bible study the teusday before last teusday, but just this last teusday we got the news that she had yet another breakdown and is now once again back in the mental ward of the hospital. We're still praying for her, my bible study is a really awesome close group and we're really trying do everything we can for her. It's just that when it seems like she's making progress and seems to be getting better, sooner or later she ends up having another breakdown and we end up back where we started. This has been going on for about a year now. So I just ask if everyone reading this could please pray for her, that this stronghold on her mind is released and her mind is set free, that she will not allow the devil to have any power over her or her mind, and anything else you can think of. Thanks in advance to everyone that prays for her, she is our sister in God's family and she needs our prayers.

And maybe if you could also pray that our bible study group stays encouraged and doesn't grow weary in doing good when it comes to praying for her and trying to help her, that the Holy Spirit will guide us in what to say to her and how to help her, that would also be much appreciated. Once again thanks everyone.

Oh yeah, cuz we all think that it's "somehow" so funny. I must have been giggling up a storm when I wrote that. Maturity at it's finest lol.

The "devil" does not attack your mind.Going by that logic, electric shock therapy would serve as an exorcism. That's not how mental health works, and by the way, it's TUESDAY, not teusday.

Well if that's what you honestly believe I'm not going to force you into another belief. I really don't care if you don't agree with what I wrote or any of my beliefs for that matter. I just think you should be more respectful of other's belief systems even if they aren't the same as your own, cuz not everyone is going to think the same way you do, and that's ok. I don't go around laughing at other's beliefs, cuz I respect the fact that they think differently from me or anybody else. We're not meant to be robots all having the exact same thought patterns you know. Since you're not even a member of this community, this community post obviously wasn't even directed at you, you just happened to find it.

And you don't have to go nit-picking at all my spelling mistakes cuz I really couldn't care less how I spelled "tuesday", if I did care THAT much I would have corrected them before posting when I skimmed-read the entry. But I didn't cuz I figured that MOST people would get my point regardless of a tiny misspelling. An entry doesn't have to be perfect but if I was writing a resume then yes I would have fixed every single tiny spelling and grammar mistake.

Well whatever I don't mind discussing views and opinions like civilized and MATURE adults, and answering people's questions, but if all you're doing is looking for someone to start an argument with then look somewhere else, cuz I don't play that game. I'm not saying this to be harsh, I'm just letting you know that I've seen lj drama way too many times, so I know how it gets started and I don't care for it, or to get caught up in any of it. I've been a member of the lj website much more than long enough to not care.
