My daughter needs prayer desperately!

I am very worried about my oldest daughter. She is 10 and has ADHD. I think that there is more to it than this. She goes through fits of anger where she wants to hurt people and animals, and destroy things. Anything she can get her hands on. She recently used a razor to cut her hair, just grabbed a handful up front and, swipe, off it went. She doesn't even know why she did this, she says she just felt like it. I am afraid that it will lead to more.

This evening she went through one of her episodes where I have to restrain her so she won't hurt someone or herself, and we talked afterwards. She admitted to me that one of the reasons that she gets so mad at herself is that she will wake up in the middle of the night and have thoughts of going and getting a knife and using it to kill me. She told me, through her tears, that she never wants to because she loves me too much, but there is a "cold hard whisper" in her head telling her to. She says she doesn't know if it's coming from herself or not. She says that she also has thoughts of killing her sister, but instead of strangling her like "her voice" tells her to, she just pulls her hair or hits her.

I never knew that it was this serious, and I am calling the Mental Health Division on Monday morning to set an appointment. Until she is better, please keep her in your prayers. Please pray that she gets the right kind of help that she needs. I love my little girl, I don't want her to feel so angry and afraid.

Thank you all,
Ria

Dear Lordsria,

Praise God for your courage to share with your brothers and sisters. I praise God for our brother Brothersinarmst4G for posting immediately to your struggle! When we communicated earlier this evening and prayed the Lord did provide an opening for your daughter and you.

I am not specialized in ADHD but have studied this area in my education curriculum and learned how so many doctors, not all, in America have misdiagnosed this symptom in children. You were given the name of an institution called the Block Center and will be able to point you in the right direction, Ria.

I hope you will go to Pastor Tim at your church and he will also be there to minister to you.

Please read and meditate on Psalm 116:3-7, The cords of death entangled me, the anguish of the grave came upon me; I was overcome by trouble and sorrow. Then I called on the name of the Lord; O Lord, save me! The Lord is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion. the Lord protects the simplehearted; when I was in great need, He saved me. Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the Lord had been good to you.

We all love you, Ria, you have been an encouragement to many of your brothers and sisters at Talk Jesus, and a light to the younger ones. Please keep us informed, sister.

Your servant in Christ Jesus.

Lordsia, I am so sorry of the struggle you are having with your daughter. I will be praying for both yourself and your daughter.

Lordsria, I will be praying for you & your daughter (& whole family) also. Remember the authority given to you by God to fight & defeat the enemy. Pray in that authority as your daughter's parent & satan has to acknowledge it.

I will pray that God will open the doors He wants opened for you to get help for your daughter....for Christian doctors to care for her & that in the midst of this, you will have an opportunity to minister/testify of God's Glory.

praying for her

:rainbow: I will lift you and your daughter in prayer. Sometime kids with ADHD can become violent she may need to have her meds changed. Also some meds can cause this. You really need to go to the mental health place for help. Only they will be able to determine what is the problem, and how to deal with it. No matter what the problem DO NOT WALK IN FEAR. For Jesus is with you and He will open the right doors for you. God wants you and your daughter to be free and healed. You will be in my prayers, get her help as soon as you can.

Your sister in Christ,

AlabasterBox :girl:

I will pray for her. God loves her and will help her. Satan uses many ways to hurt us. God isn't giving her these thoughts satan is. Because of Jesus we can say no to such thoughts. Just have faith and trust God. God will help her. Satan has no power over us in the name of Jesus.
