Bumping this instead of starting a new topic. Please pray for a young friend named Ellyssa. She's 15 & in a dark place right now. Her world is consumed with gloom & doom & hopelessness. Her mother has 'failed' her in several major ways & her grandparents are trying to pick up the pieces (she's living with them now), but there's a lot of work ahead of them & it all depends on Ellyssa wanting to be helped ... which apparently she doesn't. Ellyssa used to be ... delightful (for lack of a better word). She's creative & smart & artistic & clever. Now ... all she is ... well "dark" ... that's the best way to describe her. It's heartbreaking & I very much appreciate your prayers for her.
