Donovan O
Confused and Addicted Teen

My 17 yr old son, my only child, is drinking alcohol excessively and getting into trouble with his friends. His choices go from bad to worse and I pray constantly that God will show him the right choices to make.

Dear God, I am requesting your help for my son Donovan, who is 17 yrs old and making some very poor choices in life. He is very smart but has ADD, and is failing in school. His teachers have lost all interest and hope when he needs it the most. He has been binge drinking with his friends even though his father and grandfather are both alcoholics. He seems unable to say no to his friends and now is in trouble. He lives with his father in a resort town far away from me, and is influenced by his father's animosity and negativity. I love my son very much and have offered him a home with me, but he chooses to live in the small town and be with his friends. I pray constantly God, that you will show Donovan the right choices to make to get his life back on track. He is worth saving from a predictable life full of misery and failures. Please God - hear my cry.

Father, I thank You for hearing this prayer of the mother of Donovan. This prayer was nearly two years ago Father and so now donovan is perhaps around 19 years old. It is not acceptable Father for our children to fall into addictions of alcohol. Father, Donovan's mother's pain is real and tender and Father I thank You for showing her that You are real and O so worthy of our prayers. For only You can tender the heart of Donovan where ever he is today and I ask too that he be healed one hundred percent Father and that no matter when he pick's up a bottle, that he finds that to be an awful taste and he makes a conscious decision, not to drink anymore. Father show him a path of Your righteouness and light that path for His eyes to see it and I thank You Father that from now on, Donovan will make choices, based on Your will for his life and not choices that he would make in his own will. Father, call out to Donovan, Show Him Your will in his life. I thank You Father and sing Your praise because You alone are worthy. - Amen
