my heart is torn apart and bleeding as i read about sakay’s pain and all that she’s going through right now. i know with all my heart that You remember clearly when i was hurting like this, and when i cried out to You and felt that i received no reply. i know with all my heart that You remember my pain and my hurt, and i know with all my heart that You long so passionately to heal and restore sakay just as You healed and restored me after my own darkness. i lift up sakay now to You, Lord, with all my heart, along with her husband, and along with all people who are suffering along with her. Lord, first i pray that she finds a place where she feels that she belongs—whether it is a Catholic Church, a place in the community, a place among friends or simply a quiet time of prayer and Love with You. i pray that You would touch her heart deep inside with Your Love, and pour out Your blessings, hope, healing, Love and restoration upon her, until she knows how deeply she is loved and cherished by You, and how incredibly precious she forever is to You. i pray that You would grant her the grace and the strength not to give up in prayer, not to turn away from You and not to give up on life, but to keep praying, keep hoping, keep trusting in You. i pray that You would draw her near to Yourself and hold her close to Your Heart of Love until Your Heart beats in time with hers and she realizes just how much she means to You. i pray that she would not give up on life, but that You would strengthen her through this difficult time, and pour out Your Hope upon her, the same Hope and courage and strength and Love and life and light that You poured out upon me when i was restored from my own pain. i pray, Lord, that from her helplessness, hopelessness and despair, You would bring beauty, hope, healing and restoration in Your Love that i pray would keep her strong and safe in You. i pray that You would send Your angels to watch over her and protect her in every moment of her life, but especially as she drives to work, and that You would heal her of her fear of death and driving. i pray that You would open her eyes and her heart to the beauty of this Christmas season, and that You would touch her heart with the meaning of why this is such a joyous time of year as we celebrate Your Love and Your Son’s glorious birth, as He came to save us all. i pray that You would remind sakay of this, and restore her peace, joy, hope, faith and trust in You until her happiness returns, and she is able to celebrate Jesus’ Birth in peace and hope once more. i pray that You would help her to find the answers to her questions, and that she would no longer need to ask questions about hopelessness and despair, but that You would heal and restore her completely and forever, bringing her close to Yourself and strengthening her in hope, joy, peace and Love. i pray, Lord, that You would completely restore her hopes and dreams until she is able to hope and trust in You again, and until the light and life returns to her soul that i pray You would touch in a special way through the same tender healing You gave to me. i pray that You would heal her of her drinking, and that instead of drinking to cope, she would turn to You and trust in You and always remember the hope she has in You now and forever. just as i was healed of hurting myself to cope with my pain, heal her of drinking herself to numbness, Lord, and strengthen her just as You strengthened me, so that she never turns back to the bottle again for help, but always turns to You for true hope and Love. i pray that everything would work out for her and her husband financially, and that You would heal her of any bitterness she may hold against others whose greed has caused pain and problems in her life. help her to forgive them, Lord, and to trust in You, for i know that You will care for her as i pray You would pour out Your blessings and Love upon her. Lord, grant sakay strength – help her through each day, and heal her completely until each day is not a burden, but a blessing. open her eyes to the beauty of the life You blessed her with, and help her to treasure each moment as a gift from You, a gift of Love from You just for her, because You love her, a truth that i pray You would make extremely real to her, Lord. i pray that You would heal sakay’s marriage and replace fighting with peace and harmony, and that You would strengthen sakay and her husband to stay close and hold each other tight through this time even as You hold sakay in Your arms of Love and carry her until she can walk again on her own. Lord, i pray that You would heal sakay in time for Christmas so that she can spend this holiday in the hope and warmth of this joyous, glorious season, and that You would restore her completely and forever physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually, blessing her and bringing her closer to You than she has ever been before. heal her as You healed me, and restore her as You restored me. i pray that sharing my testimony with her may help, inspire and touch her, and that she may realize that she is never alone, for You are with her always and have promised never to leave or forsake her. i pray all this, precious, loving Father, through our Blessed Mother, Mary, my angel and all the saints, who i ask now to pray with me for sakay’s hope and healing, in Jesus’ mighty Name – Amen.
please stay strong, sakay, and please stay safe, and please take care of yourself. please hold on, and please remember the hope that you forever have in God. please know that i am always here and will always care if you ever need anything at all or would just like to talk about anything at all, so please don’t ever hesitate to contact me. i will definitely pray for you again tonight and every night, so please keep us updated on how you’re doing, alright? God bless you, sakay, and please take care.
in the peace and love of Christ,
