    I believe in Prayer, but have never asked for it..My stepson is borderline insane, with very violent outburst, and making our life a living hell..Has been for years..But now he is bigger and stronger, and much more dangerous..Would you please pray that god will help my family.

    Jack,

    I'm sure that you and your wife have your hands full. I will keep you, your Family, and your Stepson in my prayers. Prayer is something we ALL need my friend.

    Remember that if GOD leads you to it, GOD will lead you thru it...

    Jack, believe me, prayers are now being sent from Oklahoma for you. I fully believe in the power of prayer. There is a Pastor that travels the US with a Prison ministry. He was once on the FBI's 10 most wanted list. His mother prayed for him every day. She was at a service and the pastor told everyone to call their friends and relatives in to be saved. To pray and KNOW that it would happen. Durring that service she dropped to her knees and prayed. She asked God to "rewire" her son, and bring him home.

    The young man was a killer, and a drug addict. The next week after his mother asked for him to be rewired, he walked into the church Sunday morning, right down to the alter, knelt to his kness and accepted Jesus. He then stood up at the pulpit and said that he was laying in bed in a hotel with 2 hookers when he felt, and saw two beings come into the room. They came up to him and he felt a burning in his head and his arm. He asked what they were doing and they said they were rewiring him.

    This was to give you hope, and to remind you that ALL things are possible with God, no matter how bad they may seem.

    Remember to speak positive about your stepson. Your words have the power of life and death. Speak things as though they were, not as they are.

    I try and say every day things about my kids like:

    My son is very smart and has full control of his emotions and his actions.
    My son is growing in his spirit and loves the Lord and his family.
    My son knows how to, and respects ALL adults.

    Saying things like this, even though your eyes may not see it, your words will have the power to make these changes.

    If you need to talk, I am but a PM away, believe me, I have been through a very rough time with my stepson, but I believe that we are on the way out of it now as sooo many things have changed and improved.
