Eternal Father, we thank you for Angela's life. We thank you for the children she brought into this world, and for the grandchild she is about to have. Give Angela courage and strength now, as she fights a terrible addicttion. Let her feel the power of your love touching her life. Help her to know that no matter what, you always stand beside her, and that she is never alone. Help her to know that she is loved and valued, by you and by those around her. And, most of all, guide her to value herself, and to see in herself the potential that you saw when you gave her life. Bring Angela to understand a new view of her life, a life with new meaning, full of joy and love, and free from the effects of cocaine.

Our HEAVENLY Father,
Take Angela's hand and lead her out of the devestating temptation of addiction and guide her into a relationship with you. Be her rock and I pray also that you guide a sponsor to help aid in her recovery of crack cocaine. I pray that you will give her strength to pick up the phone instead of the pipe, and I pray that those precious children will give her strength as well not to use but to seek your unconditional love and forgiveness.I pray that she can see that you have already forgiven her, so that she might also forgive herself.
I ask these in God's name,
AMEN

Lord,
I pray for Angela today. I pray that Angela realized that today, she has asked for help from someone, some thing, outside herself. This, as all of us know, is the first step towards a true realization that only something outside ourselves can save us. amen

Angela: I am an addict. I am an alcoholic, and drug addict. I am a recovering addict/alcoholic.
TODAY-THIS VERY MOMENT-YOU ARE TOO.
The moment, each moment, no matter how many times you make a decision for something outside yourself, like a group meeting, a phone call to a support network, a request from a loved one to stay close to you; each of these times is a start-anew. You are on the road to recovery each time you realize that your addiction is something you have no control over, and that it is something you need help with. Ask God for the help, like you have been doing, ask your family for the help, but don't expect anything. It is the asking that puts the task away from you and to something greater. It is the "telling" on yourself that places the loneliness and isolation of the disease of addiction outside your mind, and body, for each of those terrible, desperate, wanting moments. I know those moments.
I too, have what would be considered a charmed life in that i have great family, job, career, support, etc.
THE DISGUST IN OTHERS, ABOUT YOUR ADDICTION, IS FRUSTRATION. THE LOVE IS THERE. EXPECT GREAT THINGS WHEN YOU TURN OVER YOUR ENTIRE BEING TO SOMETHING OUTSIDE YOURSELF. EACH TIME YOU GO BACK TO USING, YOU'RE TURING BACK INTO YOUR INNER SELF. THAT'S NOT WHERE THE STRENGTH, AND RESOLVE IS. IT ISN'T WHERE THE LOVE OF SELF IS FOR ANY ADDICT. IT'S OUTSIDE YOURSELF. LOOK OUTSIDE YOURSELF EACH MOMENT, EACH MOMENT OF TEMPTATION; EACH MOMENT OF DOUBT AND DEPRESSION; EACH MOMENT OF HELPLESSNESS;
When I need help, and i often do, I ask for it.
Ask for it Angela. Ask for it.
I am here. Your God is here. NA/AA is everywhere for those who seek it, as is God and friendship.
Do you feel a fellowship, a membership, with any group? If not, you are on a path to relapse, again, and again.
Start yourself off today with a moment of reflection, realizing you need something outside yourself today.
"I need help today, this very moment."
Each moment turns into hours, days, weeks, and so on.
Time clean means nothing except for today. Today, ask for help, like you have. In good moments, in difficult moments, you need help, Angela.
Know that today, someone knows your pain, knows your depression, knows your addiction, knows what you think about yourself, about what those around you must think, (as least as we think they do); but also know that someone JUST LIKE YOU in many ways, all the bad ones especially, feels stretches of moments of peace, of not wanting for anything, of silent knowing that things are going to be okay. This is not a lofty, unreachable thing for you to have TODAY, Angela. Turn to me, turn to anyone, to God in your heart, to another person in your life, and let them know that you're having a hard time, that you're an addict, and that you know the difference between right and wrong, but that you need a friend to hear you, and to hold your hand through some difficult times, for the rest of your life, not for just a short period. This voyage starts today, started when you wrote this prayer request. This moment starts the journey, that lasts for the rest of your life, not just until you're clean for a while. Each day, starts anew.
I pray for you Angela, and my heart is with you this day, and each day i sit in a meeting of fellow addicts and we speak of those that are still outside, alone, and feeling alone and helpless. Be inside a room like that Angela, then you can help others like you in time.
Amen and God Bless Angela.

Dear Lord, i am asking for you to look down upon Angela and help her each and everyday,her problem she is having is far more greater then mine today, so i am praying for her this morning. I understand what it is like to have that very problem in your life, and I understand how hard it is to ask for help, so I asking you Lord, to show her the way you have showed me so many times before. In Jesus name Amen.
Dear Angela, I too am in recovery. And I too have relasped more then I can tell you, I have lied to my family, hurt my Children, and failed myself over and over again. I can not tell you what to do, for sometimes i still have moments when i am at a loss...I do know that the power of prayer does work, as I'm sure you do as well. We are addicts and we will be addicts for the rest of our lives. This is something we will have to deal with each and every day with or without support. I know how hard it is for you to turn to your family for help, and try and make them understand, but they will never understand, and that is okay, we don't expect them too, but Angela don't ever give up, keep asking , keep trying. I have burned bridges and lite torches, caused chaos, and almost ruined my life, my family, and the life of my girls, all because of temptation. Angela you have the strengh in you to do this....all you have to do is believe in yourself, and have faith that the Lord will help you, and always remember he never puts more on us then we can handle....what does not kill us makes us stronger!
You are in my prayers!

dear angela r,

i've had a friend who was once a heroin addict who managed to break the habit after years of being in that wretched cycle. you too can do it. you can. as hard as it is, you can do it. and you deserve to have a good and fulfilled and healthy life with your family and loved ones. please don't add the burden of guilt and self-loathing to your load. these are useless and poisonous feelings. God's love for you as a perfect child of his will never ever ever fail. you are loved, and you will always be loved. there is nothing that you can do that can take you away from such unconditional holy perfect love.

many God in infinite mercy, bless, protect, strengthen, and comfort you always. love, love and yet more love be poured upon you. grace and peace and mighty strength be given you to shake off the ties that bind you to this drug.

God bless and keep you. you will make it. i believe firmly you can.

peace and rest to you.

Dear Lord;
thank you that Angela recognizes that she has a problem and wants to be freed from it.so many others in this position
never admit to the fact that they
have a problem.
i pray by your power and with thy might that you will release Angela from the clutchs of this dreadful problem.It is her desire to be free and cleanand completely recovered and you are able to remove the desires for drugs from her that she might be able to enjoy her life and family.
you understand the flustrationthe family feels because of their deep love for her And not being able to do anything that would benefit Angela and free her from this addiction ;but help them to see how much angela needs their support and love,may they stand by her and help see her through.
might Angela realize that all she needs to do is Ask you to set her free :FREE indeed both spiritually; and physically.she recognizes the destructiveness of her ways :give her the strength And power ,to defeat this Addiction.thank you Lord for your goodness;mercy and Love and for what you Are going to do for Angela even in these very moments.Your word says if we ask we shall receive;so on behalf of Angela I am asking for her Freedom from this Problem.AMen
