Subject: Please pray for my son......

I don't really know what to say. We are having behavior problems. We have tried so many things. My husband comes from a totally non-Christian background and I come from an abusive background. We really want to raise our children in a godly manner. I just don't know what to do. I found out tonight that our son deceived us. At first I was very angry at him (to myself, he wasn't home). Then, I started praying and then it just started to hurt. I couldn't believe what he had done. Looked me right in the face and said "yes, mom, I understand and hear you" and agreed to my logic for why I said no. Then, did it anyway. I feel like I have lost control over him.
I rebelled because of the abuse from my father and my rebellion hurt my mother deeply. I can honestly say I understand her pain, sleepless nights, and tears. There is so much to parenting that you don't understand, can't understand until you experience it. But, that goes both ways. The joy is so beautifuly wonderful, that there is no way to express my love for my children or the joy they bring me. I just was hoping if we raised our children in a better home than what we were raised in they would be able to make better choices, have more faith in God and to rely on Him more.

So, would you please pray that God would send the Holy Spirit to convict my son's heart? And, that God would give my husband and I wisdom, understanding and some of His Grace? I also think "wow, is this how God feels when I sin?"...because it hurts! Then, I feel shame for doing that to my Lord and Savior.

Thank you for taking the time to read my post and to pray for our family! May the Lord bless you and your family!
