Christmas Prayers

(This post ran a couple of years ago and many were encouraged to know that others would be praying.  Let’s keep a good thing going!

Monday Grace will be back on schedule next week, but I want to offer a special grace to those who suffer during these holidays. The holidays seem to bring reminders of our loss, even as they focus on our blessings. For those who miss loved ones who have passed, for those who cannot travel to be with family, for those who are worried about finances, for those who wish their family could be filled with love and joy–we will pray. )

I have written a couple of Christmas posts on dealing with your narcissists on holidays. They usually meet with mixed reviews because some who have reached the point of anger (a very natural point!) don’t like my suggestions on trying to get along. I understand and value the objections just as much as the words of appreciation. I will provide links to those posts at the end of this post.

This year I would simply like to assure each of you who must deal with uncomfortable situations with your narcissist that there are people praying for you.

If we have learned anything here, it’s that many people are struggling in narcissistic relationships. That means you are not alone. I know you may have to physically be alone in your situation, but there are people here who believe you and care. We will be praying for you.

To make that a little more personal, I invite those who desire prayer to write a note in the comments. You don’t have to write a lot, just “Pray for me!” If you use a pseudonym, that’s okay. The Lord knows who you are and what you are going through. And if you are able to pray, maybe just once or twice over the weekend, write a comment that says, “I will be praying for you!” Just a general comment, not in answer to a particular request. It will be a wonderful word of encouragement. And, if no one writes anything, we will still know that there are people praying. Because we do that here.

So, again, here’s the plan:

If you need prayer, write – Pray for me!

If you can pray, write – I will be praying!

If you are uncomfortable asking for prayer, please know that we will still be praying for you.  Even if no one asks, we know that many will need help.  So we will pray anyway.  For you.

Know that you are loved!

I will be praying for you!

    Please please please pray for me and my family.
    I know nothing can separate me from the love of God. But this mind bending experience with a covert narcissist is making me feel far from God.
    I have to work with him and he is in a position of power- I think he is going to try and make me look crazy- he is certainly succeeding in making me feel crazy.
    Ephesians 6 full armour of God and all that.
    I will be praying for you all.

    As a recovering survivor, I am praying for you. Keep your center line and don’t react. That is their goal and they love it.
    I know that internal anguish intimately. I thought I would never get out. I waited and watched for 15 years but a chance came and I took it but it took A Lot of courage and I was scared. I can’t believe I got out. It isn’t perfect but it’s out. Nothing can grow in that darkness and now it’s up to me. Keep close to your Bible for discernment and courage. Do not waste any energy hoping your crazy maker will change. They don’t. No ‘if onlys.’ Keep your thoughts and plans private at all costs. Never let the devil know that you know and never tell the devil your plans. Wait and pray. Look for your opportunity. Be smart. Don’t give up. Don’t let go. It will take time to recover from the stress and to rebuild your thought process. It will come. This reality is not forever.
    It isn’t you. Those words meant nothing to me until I finally got out. Years lost but start where you are. Be strong. Don’t confront as they will attack you. Be calm inside and outside. This is not God’s will for you or for anybody. Narcissism is an evil infection.
    I’m praying for you. All of us survivors are and we are waiting for you to join us outside to help you start to rebuild yourself. God Bless you in your ongoing struggle. It is possible to get out, somehow, someway. But it does take guts and faith. Kxxx
