In the past, and even today, people suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder have hesitated to ask for help because they thought of it as a sign of weakness. In this chat, Janet brings out the importance of love in healing and the spiritual strength that can come through turning to God in prayer. The chat explores how faith and a Biblically-based approach to the subject can lead to healing.

Questions from site visitors include one from a veteran suffering from a disorder, others from people who have suffered the trauma of abuse, dealing with hesitation to ask for help with the problem. Others ask how to re-establish relationships with family members who have been away for long periods in the military, whether or not a soldier has the right to pray for healing, how to eliminate dark memories and overcome the limitations of human history.
