Harold D.
A good father having problems with drinking.

My father has started drinking again, causing him to be drunk almost everyday and it is putting strain on all of my family.

Please, please pray that my father will stop drinking and never pick up the bottle again. He has started becoming drunk everyday, using money on beer when we need things at home. It's putting my mother in a lot of stress because we cannot live like this. So please pray that he stops drinking and realize what it's doing to his family and that we need him. And also, that he never starts drinking again.

Thank you all very much. God bless.

I will pray for your father that he sees what his addiction is doing to his family and that he finds the strength to get help while his family is still intact. I will also pray for the rest of the family that they too seek help for alcoholism is a devasting illness. There are groups to help the rest of the family if the addict does not seek help. Al-anon just to name one. I sincerely send my love and my prayers to you that all will work out for the highest good. Love and Light....LeahRachel.

Dearest Higher Power, please give Harold the willingness to reach-out for your help as well as the necessary courage to embark on the road of recovery from his addiction to alcohol. Help him to connect with You during this difficult journey. Crowd his path with guidance and support by steering him toward all the right "people, places and things." Help him to accept the reality of his addiction and to truly "see" the harm that it inflicts upon himself and his family. Lift him from addiction's torment and despair and replace it instead with all the faith and hope necessary for him to achieve a complete and sustained recovery.
Grace him with the Shining Light of Your Fullest Presence.
Heal too, any and all injury that Harold's addiction may have already caused to his wife and children. Bathe them in the ointment of Your powerful Mercy and protect them always in a warm blanket of Your Almighty Love.
My eternal thanks and gratitude to You for hearing each and everyone of our prayers. Amen.

Eternal Father, we thank you for Harold, and for his loving family. Give Harold the opportunity to feel the power of your immeasurable love, and to believe that he has, with your help, the ability to change. Give strength to his loving children and to his wife, that they may have the wisdom and courage to discern and do what is necessary. Give them the ability to trust in you, sure in the knowledge that you will always answer every prayer, even though we sometimes do not understand the answer at the time. Most especially, touch Harold's children with your spirit of power and peace and love. Help them to know that even in their most troubled of times, they are never alone, for you are always with them. Guide them to find the support that you are sending them in the form of others. Let them see your love reflected through all those around them. We thank you, Eternal Father, for Harold's family, and we trust that you will hold them close to your heart. Amen.

7/16/2005 13:58

Your family has been lifted in prayer to God's care. Your father will have to Surrender his addiction to God himself...when he's sick and tired of being sick and tired and has hit Rock bottom knowing he can't live like this anymore. Hopefully he will seek treatment and come in to Alcoholics Anonymous which I belong to and it is a God sent, a wonderful program. Meanwhile continue to pray for him and consider AlAnon for yourself and the rest of the family which will give you hope and coping skills. Many Blessings.

To Harold and Family-May you find the peace and serenity I found 20 years ago at 24. There's no perfect solution, yet only one way to fill that whole in our heart,God. We try alcohol,drugs,work, sex and people who love us try hard to help believing they can make it better, usually it's the opposite. Through a 12-step program I found the simplest answer to filling that empty heart and soul, God and the fellowship he loves so we have it to pass on to others. It was the best thing that ever happenned to me as I found the answer to my problems-standing right in front of me my whole life and have the largest support group everywhere I go. It takes the family to start recovering from their obsession with your drinking. In AA I found the one and only thing that was going to save my life, God.Bless You.

7/16/2005 14:55

Dear Lord, please give Harold the strength to quit drinking once and for all. Let him turn to you for help. Please bless this family who is in need of help. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.

7/16/2005 16:14

Dear heavenly father, please take Harold in your loving arms and show him that life is good, that whatever pain and suffering he is enduring you can be erased with your love and grace. Please grant him the strength to stop drinking and give his loving family the patience and wisdom to continue to be by his side during these difficult times. Harold really needs your help, Lord, please heal him from all pain, we ask you this through Christ our Lord, Amen.

7/16/2005 19:16

Lord, I pray that Harold turns his helplessness and addiction over to you and ask for your will in his life, so that he may become the sober, loving person you intended him to be.

To the child of Harold: I am an alcoholic, an addict. I pray for you and your family as much as Harold today and each day, that you too may seek the help, and ask for it. Your prayer request is a seed, that now planted, will grow into to something greater.

I ask you to get your Dad to an AA meeting. It's the only way for countless numbers of men that have every war story and excuse that he may have. It is made up of people that know what he thinks, how he thinks, what he feels, and how helpless and ashamed, or too proud and angry to admit wrong. Either way, it's what he needs, and what will keep your family together and supportive to each other.

You can go to a meeting for family/loved ones of alcoholics also. It's very useful for those dealing with what you are dealing with. Ask someone to take you if you can't get there yourself, because you need help too in dealing with this disease.

I pray for you. Amen Greg

7/17/2005 16:55

dear Lord I pray that you be with this family and help guide them into your presence. I pray for the father who has a drinking problem. Please help him in this time of need. In Jesus name I pray Amen.

7/17/2005 18:10

Dear Heavenly Father, I pray that you will fill this family with your love, strength, faith, hope and comfort. I pray Lord that you will bind the spirits of alcoholism, fear, doubt, anger, and hopelessness and that you will loose the spirits of abstinence, sobriety, courage, trust, love, hope, faith and self-control in this man. I pray, Lord, that you would fill him with your HOly Spirit and that the scales will fall from his eyes so that he may see what he is doing to himself and to his family. Ipray that you will give him the strength he needs to fight this battle, Lord and that once he puts that bottle down, that he will never pick it up again. I pray dear God, that you will give this family the love and strength they need to stand strong through this storm and that you will enable them to forgive and to love unconditionally. In Jesus name, I pray, Amen.

7/17/2005 18:35

Dear Lord, Please give Harold the strenght to deal with his problems without the alchol. Please let him see that you are there to help him and his family and that he is hurting them with the drinking. Please be with him and give him the courage to come to you for help. I pray in your name AMEN

7/17/2005 22:07

Dear Lord,

Please give Harold the strength to quit drinking forever and the mental clarity to realize what his habit is costing him and his loved ones. Grant him a strength and earnestness and determination to overcome his addiction, bring him into circles of people who will be able to assist and support him during his recovery, and most of all grant rest, peace, hope and comfort to him and his family. May your almighty Holy Spirit bring them a sense of your unending, unconditional love for them, and may this nightmare end and a new, joyous life for Harold and his family begin.

In Jesus' name I pray,

Dear Lord,
How close to my heart is this cry for healing of alcoholism. I have seen personally what this can do to a family. I beg of you, please heal Harold of this devastating addiction. Bring comfort to this family so they can also heal from the wounds of this battle. I pray for this in Jesus name, Amen.

We rebuke the demon of alcohol in the name of Jesus. We bind up Satan and send him back to the pit of hell where he belongs. Dear God, please let Harold know that the hole in his soul is Jesus-shaped and can only be filled with Him and His love. Strengthen his family and keep them together during these trying times. Help Harold find the support to tackle his problem. Remove the taste of alcohol from his mouth today. We claim victory over alcoholism and Satan today in Jesus' name. AMEN

7/18/2005 09:09

I pray that you would be with his family so that they will give him the understanding that he needs so he will not pick up another drink. I ask these things in Jesus name, Amen
