Please pray for my son (Jamal Hurd) he is all mixed up in his mind. He has taken someone's car he lives with and stolen his debit card. He has left the state and is just driving only the Lord knows where he is going, I pray he is coming home. They have called the police and they are searching for him. All this started because he lost a promotion on the job which he had put his heart into doing a good job but it didn't work out. Please pray for his safe return and that he turns himself in and is not hurt and he gets probation instead of time. He is really normally a good respectful young man but something has gone terribly wrong.
