I have recently come to medhelp because of problems with my 5 year old son. I pray every night for strength. That he will calm down and turn his life around. He is very violent and just numberous problems in school, at home, and in the community. If you want to know the story you will have to read my questions on my home page. Anyway, now I am reaching out to you. Anyone who would like to have support and give it in return please friend request me. I want as much support as I can get. God led me to this great site and to this group and to you by having you read this. Thank God for his leadership
This is a prayer for you. As you read it, believe it and trust in it. Speak life over your son and your situation. The devil comes to conquer, destroy, and steal. He wants to steal your joy, conquer your home, and destroy the hopes that you have for your son. God wants you to feel joy, be the leader of your home, and have a son who makes you proud.
God, our savior,
Be with this mother during her hard times. Keep her from feeling overwhelmed and lost. Let her find peace when she speaks to you. Enable her with the strength and the tools she needs to lead her son and take care of him. When she needs someone to support her, let her find support even in the most unlikely of places. Give her joy and show her your love everyday.
Lord, be with her and let her feel no pain. Give her strength and let her find time for herself and for you. Please Lord, be with her son and let him start to act as he should act. Allow him to find the words he needs to express himself to his mom even as young as he is.
Lord, give this family peace and guidance. Let nothing destroy the great plans you have for them. This I pray in your name and your sons name Jesus Christ.
In Jesus Name, Amen. Standing in agreement and praying also. If you encouragement through this process, please send me a message. Just know you cannot give up on your son na matter what anyone thinks of him. You are his advocate. More than that, Jesus is his advocate. That devil, satan, is after our children. Fight in prayer and in faith for you son. Tell the devil he cannot have your son. Speak life into your son. Anoint him every day and every night. More important, believe Jesus hears your prayers and have faith He will answer them.
Have you ever heard of the Human Library?
Well, if not I will let you check it out online, but this was the first thing I thought about when I read your post.
The 26th lesson on the course of miracles is:
My attack thoughts are attacking my invulnerability.
It is surely obvious that if you can be attacked you are not invulnerable. You see attack as a real threat. That is because you believe that you can really attack. And what would have effects through you must also have effects on you. It is this law that will ultimately save you, but you are misusing it now. You must therefore learn how it can be used for your own best interests, rather than against them.
Because your attack thoughts will be projected, you will fear attack. And if you fear attack, you must believe that you are not invulnerable. Attack thoughts therefore make you vulnerable in your own mind, which is where the attack thoughts are. Attack thoughts and invulnerability cannot be accepted together. They contradict each other.
The idea for today introduces the thought that you always attack yourself first. If attack thoughts must entail the belief that you are vulnerable, their effect is to weaken you in your own eyes. Thus they have attacked your perception of yourself. And because you believe in them, you can no longer believe in yourself. A false image of yourself has come to take the place of what you are.
Practice with today's idea will help you to understand that vulnerability or invulnerability is the result of your own thoughts. Nothing except your thoughts can attack you. Nothing except your thoughts can make you think you are vulnerable. And nothing except your thoughts can prove to you this is not so.
Six practice periods are required in applying today's idea. A full two minutes should be attempted for each of them, although the time may be reduced to a minute if the discomfort is too great. Do not reduce it further.
The practice period should begin with repeating the idea for today, then closing your eyes and reviewing the unresolved questions whose outcomes are causing you concern. The concern may take the form of depression, worry, anger, a sense of imposition, fear, foreboding or preoccupation. Any problem as yet unsettled that tends to recur in your thoughts during the day is a suitable subject. You will not be able to use very many for any one practice period, because a longer time than usual should be spent with each one. Today's idea should be applied as follows:
First, name the situation:
I am concerned about ______.
Then go over every possible outcome that has occurred to you in that connection and which has caused you concern, referring to each one quite specifically, saying:
I am afraid ______ will happen.
If you are doing the exercises properly, you should have some five or six distressing possibilities available for each situation you use, and quite possibly more. It is much more helpful to cover a few situations thoroughly than to touch on a larger number. As the list of anticipated outcomes for each situation continues, you will probably find some of them, especially those that occur to you toward the end, less acceptable to you. Try, however, to treat them all alike to whatever extent you can.
After you have named each outcome of which you are afraid, tell yourself:
That thought is an attack upon myself.
Conclude each practice period by repeating today's idea to yourself once more.
