Please lift up my long-time friend. She was like a sister to me, and I truly believe she is saved. She has made many heartbreaking decisions and is in a very dark place. She has "forbidden" me from future contact with her in any way regarding her beliefs and returning to the forgiveness offered in Christ - or even to simply offer her my ongoing friendship. She is full of hate and anger for the Church and all who are part of it. Please pray for God to break the spiritual bonds that are blinding this friend who was once very strong in her faith and well-educated in God's Word.
