I know not all of you share in my beliefs, but I need to ask for prayer. My 14 year old niece ran away this morning while vacationing in New York City. Please pray for her safety and that she will be found or return on her own soon. Please pray for this young girl and pass this prayer request on to anyone and everyone you can think of. The more prayers we have lifted up the better. Thank you.

Thanks be to God that she was found. I pray she resists whatever influences brought her in this place.

Father, I lift to you this girl today. Let her know you. Heal the hurts in her life. Help her to walk in your love and truth.

Kayla, happy to read that she was found safe and sound. Praise God for listening to all of the prayers sent for her safety. I'll continue to pray that she and her family get to the root of whatever troubled her enough to feel the need to run away. How scary... May God bless you all during this trouble time.

Sorry all. Yes, she's back. She and her mother returned home. She told her mom that she was going to visit a boy she had met on the internet, another 14 year old(they've met him in person before, so he really is a 14 year old boy). One of the more frustrating parts to all this is that my sister in law had offered to bring her daughter out to visit him and his family on this trip, and her daughter said she didn't want to. She later told her mom and grandma with no remorse that she just wanted to shake up the family. Thank you all for your continued prayer on this issue. Amanda-Thank you for the information, I will definately pass it on to my sister in law. It's good to know how many "strangers" are willing to pray for others. Thank you again.

I will pray for her and her family. Has she been found/returned? I see this post is 2 days old, so maybe she's back?

First of all, may we all give God the glory & thank Him for her being found. I feel like we should all continue to lift this precious young girl up in our prayers. A special thank you to Kayla for reaching out to the Circle of Mom's. God Is Good ALL The Time!!!!!!

Hi! I'm so sorry to hear that you all have had to go through this. I used to work at a place for troubled teenage girls. It is a Christian-based home. I'm not sure what your beliefs are, but you believe in prayer so I'd say you would agree that Jesus is the only One who can truly help! The home is different than most you hear about. It is not a lock down facility. It is more for teenagers who know that they need help and whose parents love them, but have tried everything they know. Such a wonderful place!! I loved it there. If you think that it may come to that, believe me when I say this would be one of your best options. Anyway, the place is called Shenandoah Haven for Girls. It's in Cleveland, TN. The phone number is 423-339-2103.

Thank you all of you. We just got a call from my husband's dad. Our niece has been found. She's in a cab right now in deleware, but with the help of the police her mother was able to speak with the cab driver who is turning around and bringing her to the police station. They'll have many issues to work through, but she is safe and on her way back to her mother. Thank you so much for your prayers. Prayer is the most powerful thing we have. Praise God!!
