Prayer for the family

by Maingi
(Kenya)

Please pray for my daughter Veronica. She sneezes a lot in the morning and in the evening all the time. She gets congestion and starts wheezing at night. Again, sometimes she gets a lot of headache. She has a permanent running nose all the time. She is a teenager and the doctors say that she is asthmatic. It hurts me so much because she is permanently using a handkerchief all the time. Please lift her to the Lord. I am a widow and sometimes I spent so much money taking her to hospital and I am not earning so much.

My two brothers are schzophrenic and are of marriageable age but not married. That God will have mercy on them.

All my siblings are married to partners who reduce them to size. My sisters, one separated the other day because the husband has threatened to kill her. The other sister's husband keeps reducing her to size by using very derogatory language. He has rejected her. The men in my family are not doing well. They are married to wives who abuse them openly and say that they are good for nothing. One brother has taken to drinking very heavily and says that it is because of frustration from the wife. The wife has also exposed to everyone and she says that she married a good for nothing person. None of my siblings has a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.

Lift me to the Lord also, I have applied for a loan so that I can finish up school fees for my daughter and settle a number of urgent things. I would like to start a business to take care of my brother who is schizophrenic and also to build a small house for him so that at least he can stay alone. Our house is quite small but I thank God that he has used me in a very big way which I never expected.

My brother's wife has reduced him to a house husband. He does all the cooking, cleans the house, does all the duties in the home and the lady does not listen to him at all and goes out all the time with women who are very well to do and very educated. She tells him that she is free to mix with anyone she cares to. She has stopped talking to her in laws and now my brother has stopped talking to me. I have been standing in the gap for my family.

Thank you for standing with me. God bless your Ministry.
