Lisa A.
Faith, Addiction, Abuse

My boyfriend and I have been together for six years and have a two year old daughter together. I am a Christian and he is not. I have gotten way off of my path, but I'm am trying hard to get back on track. It really bothers me that we have a child and w

My boyfriend have been together for six years, since we were sixteen. My brother had an accident when I was 15 that left him totally disabled. I'd gotten saved, but began to rebel and met my boyfriend. After I became a mother, I really grew up, but he hasn't. He has his own business. I run it for him (I'm an accounting major) but he totally takes me and my daughter for granted. He is verbally abusive. I left in December and just came home. He told me he would start counseling and go to church, but he's not. I know he believes in God because he does pray when things get rough, but I can't do this alone. Please ask God to open his heart to Him. I want things to work out for John and I so we can be a Christian Family. I want my daughter growing up in a family where BOTH of her parents can teach her about the lord. I know he loves me, but things are rough-the business is slow and he is drinking and smoking pot a lot more now. Please also ask the lord to help John with his addictions. Thank you.

Our Lord, please loose John of the things that binde him to drinking, smoking pot, and rebelling. Show him your light, and wash him in your blood. Give Lisa strenght to support him, and show her the bigger picture, your finished work in him. Bless this child that was given by you, keep her safe & at peace. Let yor spirit fall and heal.
Dear Lisa, my heart goes out to you & your family, if you need to talk, you can email me at I also am strugling, young, and have very little support from my husband. He to believes, but is rebelious. It is hard to stay faithful to God when you have little support, but remember... God is our strenght, he will bring us out of the darkness & into the light! Love your sister in Christ, Jul

Dear One, everyone at some time or another makes a blunder or more. Do not beat up on yourself, God loves you, your friend and child. This is my prayer for you and yours:
FatherGod/Mother Goddess, by the power of the Holy Spirit and Redeemer for your children, I ask that you would dispatch "Eschiel", your good angel that binds drug abuse and self-destruction. Give relief to this your daughter and heal the pangs of addiction in her environment. Impart the spirit of peace and bring her to a deeper knowlege of You. Heal her friend from the slavery to drugs, NOW!
