PostSubject: Prayers for my niece   Mon Jul 11, 2011 9:24 pm

My niece is 21 years old, and she is shedding her faith for a more
atheistic belief system while being fed a bunch of crap from a couple of
Satanists she's become friends with through some role-playing website.
I am really worried about how she will turn out from all this.

Not good news at all, praying now.

An ironic thing happened yesterday after posting this. My sister, my niece's mama, called last night and is currently in the hospital with innumerable blood clots in her lungs. While I don't thing God likes to make people suffer, it does seem odd that my niece is struggling with faith and then her mom ends up in the hospital. Could it be that God has allowed this to shift my niece's ideas of faith? It could just be that my sister needs to take better care of herself and all coincidental, but the timing sure seems weird to me.

So, add my sister to your prayer time, please. I'll keep you posted of what's going on.

Maybe God is using this to convince your niece that God is the way, the truth and the life.
I hope you sister will do better, blood cloths in her longs is serious.
My prayers are with your seester and your niece.
I hope God will show her what's really true.
Hope you soon have good messages about your sister and your niece.

I'm with you, I don't believe God purposly hurts his children...but all things can be used for God's will. Praying this will cause your niece to see her need for Chirst.
Also praying for your sister.

Heavy stuff. Remember though, God doesn't usually work overnight... this may take some time, but His will is going to be done. I see some good coming out of these difficult situations.

How's your niece reacting on all things happened with her mom.
I pray that God opens her eyes.

My niece is just kind of withdrawn--more than usual. I think God can do wonderful things here, but I almost feel like she is going to have to get worse before she gets better. I think my niece really wants to just run wild.

Very sad to hear that, praying she will see the error of her ways before it is too late.

I got to have a real heart-to-heart with my niece today. She is struggling with faith in God due to confusion about her sexuality. She can't resolve how God would give her those desires and then call it sin. At least I was able to get her to really pinpoint what the issues were that were bothering her. Now, I can pray more specifically and really sic the Holy Spirit on her! LOL

Good to hear she was willing to talk to you. I think I might take that as a good sign.

Your niece will be in my prayers.
It really helps when you can pray more specifically.
My hope is God will use you to tell her about her confusion.

I really tried to approach the whole conversation as more of a friend than as her uncle or even as a pastor (since I am both). She really opened up using that technique. I will have to remember this and try it with my youth group! LOL Anyway, I am hoping that some of what I told her at least gets her to thinking. Maybe, just maybe, God will get her back on the right track.
