Thomas W. Glenn Jr.
Tommy was a wonderful man. He was charming, intelligent, charismatic and good-hearted. He could always put a smile on your face.


This prayer circle is for all of those who are suffering from the disease of addiction, dealing with a family members addiction, or those of us who have lost a loved one to addiction. In loving memory of Tommy. September 2,1975-January 27,2001. God Bless


This prayer circle is in memory of Thomas W. Glenn Jr. Tommy was an intelligent, articulate, charming and good-hearted young man. His life ended short at the young age of 25. A true genius, the things he could have achieved if given the chance. On a cold Januay morning he passed away from "bad heroin". His family and loved ones miss him desperately and need prayers. Also, in honor of Tommy the prayers are being said for all of those suffering from the disease drug addiction, families dealing with addiction and loved ones of those who have passed on due to addiction. Tom was a conquerer, if this could beat him...it could beat anyone. Please help one another. Please Lord, give me the strength to continue to fight for this cause. God bless you.

WE LOVE YOU TOM!!!

Tom, you are in the Lords hands now and one day we will meet again For now, I pray for you all the peace and happiness in heaven.

Dear God,
Bless all the people who have been falsely accused & persecuted wrongly. Let the persecutors realize that Tommy had people not only visiting him while he was going through detox. in rehab. facilities, Cape May, & during the 11 months that he was on & off of heroin. They were fighting a war to get him clean. After losing the battle and a loved one not only did she do so many things to help his family while they were falsely incriminating her. Which she did out of love for her cuz Tommy. She also took in her cousin Kimberly children & watch them for months after Tommy's death. While she was still dealing with so much of her own grief. Grief of not seeing her beloved Tommy again in this life. Her grief was not from guilt....Even though bad guilt can cause grief. If there are people who are carrying this bad guilt let them forgive their self & move on with their lives. Let them find peace & reconciliation with their self & family. Teach them to be thankful that Tommy was so lucky to have such caring people in his life & not boot anyone who will stand up to the false accusation. Which I understand happen more then once. I have tried to contact you & I've been hung up on. If that is the way you want to live your life so be it. I will not. My heart goes out to you that you lose your son....but that does not give you the right to be ungrateful for all that has been done for you. Someday, we hope that you will realize that we cared too!
In Jesus name we pray,
Amen

HELLO LORD, IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE WE'VE SPOKE, AND THOUGH IT'S BEEN AWHILE I HOPE YOU'RE STILL LISTENING.
I'VE STRAYED AWAY FROM KEEPING YOU CLOSE TO ME, FROM KEEPING PRAYER A DAILY PART OF MY LIFE, AND MORE SO FROM KEEPING YOUR WILL A PART OF MY MISSION IN LIFE, BUT I PRAY THAT YOU ARE ALWAYS FORGIVING AND UNDERSTANDING TOWARD MY FAULTS.
IT'S BEEN A FEW DAYS SINCE THE PASSING ANIVERSARY OF A GREAT MAN, THOMAS GLENN JR. AND YET I NOW AM JUST GETTING TO THIS , FOR THAT I AM SORRY, NO DOUBT SUCH A GUY DESERVES THE UNLIMITED ATTENTION OF THE WORLD, AND OF MYSELF, BUT WHAT I AM PRAYING FOR THIS MOMENT IS THAT ATTENTION BE BROUGHT TO THE AWESOME CHARACTER IN TOMMY, MORE AWESOME THAN I COULD EVER HOPE TO ACHEIVE, HE WAS A GREAT MAN, NO, HE IS A GREAT MAN AND THAT'S THE WAY HE'S ALWAYS GOING STAY TO ME, TO US, A GREAT, GREAT, GREAT GUY, AND IF NOTHING ELSE I PRAY TODAY THAT HE BE KEPT IN ALL OF OUR MEMORIES AS SUCH, JUST A GREAT, MAGNIFICENT, KIND, LOVING, UNDERSTANDING, COMPASSIONATE AND PASSIONATE MAN WHO KNEW NO BOUNDARIES, BUT PLEASE LORD LET HIM STILL TO THIS SECOND HAVE NO BOUNDARIES, SO THAT HE MAY TRAVEL BETWEEN AND AMONG US ON EARTH WHILE HIS SOUL MAY BE IN HEAVEN BUT HIS SPIRIT WILL ALWAYS BE WITH US HERE, AS I KNOW HE IS. THANK YOU, AMEN.

Dear God,
This is for all of us who need it:BLESSED IS THE MAN (PSALM 32)

Blessed is the man whose sins
have been forgiven!
Blessed is the man whose soul
is right within him.

When I kept my sin inside,
Lord, I wasted, almost died,
apart from You.

Heavy, Lord, was my distress!
Then to You did I confess,
and I was freed!

You are loving, You are true.
Unto all who trust in You,
You show the way.
You show the way.

For Thine is the glory and the power forever and ever Amen

To The Father, Son and The Holy Ghost,

Source of the possible, You gather us,
Many colored gems that glisten in Your hand,
And spill us upon life's table,
Our futures displayed in the arrangement.

The table's tremor scatters the design:
Illness, loss, isolation trigger the disruption,
The pattern shifts. Yet You remain,
Sending Your light through the stones.

Help us to adjust to these changes,
To sense our continuing essence;
Help us find new radiance, Your glory,
Align us again in holiness.
Amen

P.S.
To all those suffering from addiction my prayers are with us, to all those recovering from addicton Thank your Higher Power and keep up the good work, to all those who lost someone to addiction may God help you in your time of need, and finally to still suffering from such a crippling disease which seems to effect the brightest and best, may God find you and keep you, in the arms of the angel may you find some comfort here.

Amen

To Tommy Glenn, and all that were touched by his heart, WE love you! :

Spend all your time waiting for that second chance
For the break that will make it OK
There's always some reason to feel not good enough
And it's hard at the end of the day
I need some distraction or a beautiful release
Memories seep from my veins
Let me be empty and weightless and maybe
I'll find some peace tonight
In the arms of the Angel far away from here
From this dark, cold hotel room, and the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent revelrie
You're in the arms of the Angel; may you find some comfort here
So tired of the straight line, and everywhere you turn



There's vultures and thieves at your back
The storm keeps on twisting, you keep on building the lies
That you make up for all that you lack
It don't make no difference, escaping one last time
It's easier to believe
In this sweet madness, oh this glorious sadness
That brings me to my knees
In the arms of the Angel far away from here
From this dark, cold hotel room, and the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent revelrie
In the arms of the Angel; may you find some comfort here
You're in the arms of the Angel; may you find some comfort here

I find comfort knowing that you are our angel! Love always,

Jen

Rest Safely in His Care

There are many things in life
That we cannot understand,
But we must trust God's judgement
And be guided by his hand,
And all who have God's blessing
Can rest Safely in his care,
For he promises safe passage
On the wings of faith and prayer.

Hope for Tomorrow

There's hope for tomorrow,
Even when things look dim;
There's hope for tomorrow
When you put your trust in him
Though darkness surrounds you,
He's always there,
With arms that will hold you
In His loving care,
Just when you thought
You had lost everything,
He's right there beside you
With comfort to bring,
And you'll know assurance,
He'll never depart,
For He's dwelling inside you,
Right there in your heart.

I FEEL ABANDON BY GOD BECAUSE WHEN I WAS GOING THROUGH A DEPRESSION THE ONLY HOPE I HAD FOR MYSELF WAS MY JOB THAT I LOVE. YETSERDAY I WAS ASKED TO COME TO SECURITY, WHICH IS ROUTINE IN BANKING. ABOUT TEN MONTHS AGO A CUSTOMER CLAIM SHE BOUGHT A CD FOR 7000.00 AND THE BANK IS MISSING THE MONEY AND THEY HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO GIVE HER THE CD AND INTEREST. THEY SAY IT POINTS TO ME WHO PROCESSED THE CD ABOUT A YEAR AGO. HOWEVER, THE MONEY IS MISSING. I WOULD NOT EVEN CONSIDER UNDER ANY SITUATION OF TAKING MONEY. I FEEL THAT ALL THE PROBLEMS I HAVE BEEN THROUGH GOD WOULD GIVE ME AN REST FROM MY PROBLEMS, BUT, TO TAKE AWAY THE JOB I LOVE IS SO UNFAIR, I FEEL GOD HAS ABANDON ME, BECAUSE I COULD GOT TO JAIL AND LOSS MY DREAM JOB I LOVE. IF YOU COULD PRAY FOR ME, AND MY SITUATION NOT TURN OUT THIS WAY AND MOST IMPORTANTLY ASK GOD NOT TO ABANDON ME, PLEASE PRAY FOR ME.

Hearing this verse again only strenghten my faith. I pray that it will do the same for all the people who have said prayers on this site. I want everyone to know that this pray site is in my prayers daily. God bless all of you & brighten your day. Amen

Dear Father,
I'm reaching for the stars & the strain on my body is much to hard. My father's
child has taken it to far. He sits in a bar having fun, while I stand in lines looking for funds. I try to keep my chin up high, but the weight of my tears have my chin down to my thighs. He does his happy little dance while he takes my child to Burger King. Telling her she is his sweetheart. While I watch him tear her life apart. NO FOOD, NO MONEY, NO BILLS, HE'LL PAY JUST SO MOMMY WILL LET HIM STAY. GO AWAY! GO AWAY! I SCREAM IN MY HEAD YOUR ADDICTION TO DRUGS & ALCOHOL IS THE ONLY THING YOU OBEY! You don't care if your child's body is bare, JUST AS LONG AS YOU CAN PAY YOUR ADDICTION FARE. I say farewell & I hope to win the warfare. MY GOD HELP ME TO REACH THIS STAR & GET AWAY FROM THIS MADMAN'S ARMS. AMEN

It's been a little over a year since Tommy died, and I still hurt and try to make sense of it all. Reading this prayer circle shows me how much people(family, friends, etc.) care. My heart still aches for you and even more so for the people you left behind. Your Mom, Dad, and your sister Kim are keeping it together and they miss you more than you'd ever know. Your family is strong and I would like to think with such tragedy that good could come out of it. But I am still waiting for that good, I don't know if anyone will ever know what happened to you and as much as it hurts maybe there is a reason. I still have faith in finding out what happened. I am still healing, reading Tommy's letters, going over the last few conversations that we had trying to think of anything that seemed wrong or out of place, but I think that is part of the healing. I never lost anyone close to me like Tommy was and he was the first boyfriend I had, and now I sometimes feel it's hard to move on but I try and I'm glad I have his family to talk to so my memory of him lives on.
