a prayer request that I need your help with....

Hey sorry for not being as active as I'd like to be in this community. But I have a big prayer request that I really need your help on.

In my bible study group I have this Christian friend, her name's Ruth, and she really needs a lot of prayer right now. Maybe I should explain a little more. Over this past year she's had several mental breakdowns and has been in-and-out of the hospital becuz of it. The devil has just been attacking her mind so badly, and it's been affecting her to the point where she'll have a breakdown, or even when she doesn't it shows in her appearance. I mean she'll be even shaky sometimes. My bible study group has been praying for her over this time, but we're not completely sure what's going on in her mind and why these attacks have been so bad. Some of us have gone to visit her in the hospital to pray with her, read her bible verses, talk with her, etc. But we don't even know if she's even listening to the things we say to her, if she's taking it in or not. She still believes in God and Jesus as her Lord and Saviour, but something in her mind is believing the lies of the enemy. Just recently she was out of the hospital and came to our bible study the teusday before last teusday, but just this last teusday we got the news that she had yet another breakdown and is now once again back in the mental ward of the hospital. We're still praying for her, my bible study is a really awesome close group and we're really trying do everything we can for her. It's just that when it seems like she's making progress and seems to be getting better, sooner or later she ends up having another breakdown and we end up back where we started. This has been going on for about a year now. So I just ask if everyone reading this could please pray for her, that this stronghold on her mind is released and her mind is set free, that she will not allow the devil to have any power over her or her mind, and anything else you can think of. Thanks in advance to everyone that prays for her, she is our sister in God's family and she needs our prayers.

And maybe if you could also pray that our bible study group stays encouraged and doesn't grow weary in doing good when it comes to praying for her and trying to help her, that the Holy Spirit will guide us in what to say to her and how to help her, that would also be much appreciated. Once again thanks everyone.
