Update on blogger needing prayer

"Help your brother's boat across and your own will reach the shore" Hindu Proverb

I never thought writing this blog would really affect anyone. I wrote because I needed to write - I needed to tell without being seen - Then that blogger reached out to me, told me how dark her world is - reminded me of that hopeless and dark place that I somehow had survived from - I thought of friends who hadn't survived - friends who took their own lives, too overwhelmed with the pain. And then I asked for prayer for her and the kindness of your response showed me the power of the blog. You guys are the abolute best.

I knew you would pray. I knew you guys would come through and you did. Thank you.

Update: I asked if she would be willing for others from my blog to contact her to offer help or to possibly direct her somewhere in her area for help. She said yes. She lives in
Pennsylvania. If anyone wants to contact her please contact my blog and I will give her the info.

Giving her a name makes her all the more real. I'm always amazed by the thought that we can move God and change a life.

I started my blog for the very reasons that you started yours and I too have been amazed at the outpouring of love and prayer. I feel safer in my "blog world" than my real world. I will definitely be praying for the sweet young lady you spoke of...along with you. Hugs!!

This has given me a smile. I am so glad that we can show truly how vast God's kingdom is but also how close it is.

Thinking of you young girl! xx

How is your friend doing tonight? I pray she is better. If she has a blog, I would love to visit with her. Take care. Tammy

I wish I lived closer to her so that I could be of more help, but she will definitely be in my prayers. Thank you for being someone she can rely on in a world that has taught her otherwise.

God is faithful! He will spare the young lady from misery. Keep the prayers coming.

We are all pulling her forward. She so must reach out...if she does not she will remain stuck. There is no monster out here...there is only an angel that is waiting to soothe her pain.

Also tell her that as long as she remains hiding she is allowing the abuser to win.

physically we can't be around her but our prayers will surround her. with love and hope to cuddle and make her safe. God Hear our Prayers.
