SEAN A
SON IN CRISES


MY SON IS TRYING TO FIND HIS WAY & NEEDS PRAYERS TO OVERCOME SUBSTANCE & CHEMICAL ABUSE


MY SON IS A NICE PERSON WHO NEEDS ALOT OF PRAYERS TO OVERCOME HIS POT & ACHOHOL ABUSE & TO EMOTIONALLY HEAL HIS HEART, MIND & BODY. HE THINKS HE IS NO GOOD,BUT HES ONE OF THE BEST PEOPLE I KNOW. HE SLEEPS WITH A ROSARY & A FIGURE OF THE 'BLESSED MOTHER' NEXT TO HIS BED. I KNOW HE WANTS TO STOP BUT HE'S AFRAID OF SOMETHING. PLEASE PRAY FOR HIM, IF YOU KNEW HIM, YOU WOULD LOVE HIM TOO.

Praying for Sean to make him strong. It can be done. My late husband was a heroin addict in his youth and found the strength. You can do it Sean. God Bless.

dese5: I also have an 18 year old son, and I am also a recovering addict so I know a little bit about how he feels and what he's going though. You didn't mention how old he is but I went to treatment 5 different times in a span of about 15 years. I've been sober for about 2 years now and I am 49 years old, soon to be 50, but I feel like I'm 16 years old. They say you stop maturing at the age you started drinking and I was 16 when I started. I wasted all those years and I will never get them back. However it's never to late, I just wish people were more aware of it then--like they are now--I could have started earlier. It sounds like you're a very loving and caring mom so I'm happy about that. He's going to need a lot of support and I know you'll be there for him. The first thing he'll need to do is get a sponsor and he also needs to go to AA or NA meetings. Ideally once or twice a week.

I think it is so absolutely precious that he sleeps with a rosary and has a figure of the 'Blessed Mother' next to his bed. I can see how much you love your son because I feel love for him also. He sounds like such a sweetheart. I just want to give him a big hug and tell him that everything's going to be ok. I'll be keeping you all in my prayers.

Sean, God made us all with weaknesses, and he understands that it is sometimes hard for us to do the right thing, the important thing is that we always know he is there, waiting with open arms to hold us up and help us out of our misery. He truly is an ever loving father and just like our own earthly parents only want the best for us and would do anything to help us achieve that God wants that for us even more. My favorite scripture says, I have plans for you, plans to prosper and not to harm you, plans for hope and a future. Let him take over, take all your problems to him in prayer, lay them at his feet and leave them there with the knowledge that with him all things are possible. God Bless and Keep you during this difficult journey!

Our Dear Lord God,
I want to offer up your beloved son, Sean, to You, in prayer. I want to pray for his hurting soul, his hurting heart, and pray that You will replace the pain and desire to blunt that pain with pot and alcohol, with Your soothing love, benevolence and understanding. I pray that Sean will find someone who will show him the way to a relationship with you. Lord, I pray that Sean will be put on the path to recovery immediately! In Your most precious Name I pray, Amen.

It is always difficult to see your child fall and struggle to get back up on their feet again.. You may lend a hand, give verbal cues and physically show your child how to walk... This, I immagine, is how God feels about us. I belive that the Lord is with you and your son, and because he is all knowing I need but only pray: Dear Lord, please help Sean take one step at a time to get to a safe place, and help him to become less impressionable and hang out with a 'better crowd' Thank you much Amen.

Dear Lord I lift up Sean to You - I pray You give him the strength necessary to get thru his difficult time & give him the strength to give up the crutches of alcohol & drugs. Lord I Pray for blessings for this young man. I pray You will put angels into his path each day to guide him, comfort him & give him daily strength.
Lord I ask for special blessings for Sean's family who are desperately trying to help him. Please guide them & bless them each & every day Lord.
In Jesus Precious Name I ask these things. AMEN!

Dear Lord,
I have been in Sean's shoes before. Please help him come out of this and give him the power, strength, and faith in him to overcome his chemical dependency. Wash him clean of his sins and bring him back to the holy land of Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Just watch over him Lord until he does make the right decisions at least. Intervene in his life with devoted Christians and maybe even speak to his mother about an intervention. Thank you for every blessing and listening Lord.

Now this is to you dese5... i have been down that road... i would really like for you to e-mail me so i can find out some more facts and give you some advice. I have been there before... it is so hard to get out of though but please e-mail me djbutterflyx@comcast.net I want to do anything I can to help hun!

Please, Lord, help this young man know that 'God don't make no junk' and that Heavenly Father has a purpose for everyone on the planet...even if it's to have others pray for him!
God doesn't create us to fail...at anything. Even when we DO fail...that's still a success! In our failures, we become more like Paul who THANKED God for his many problems, saying that others would look at him and be drawn to God, to His holy comfort and to the beliefs Paul shared with his friends and the disciples of Jesus.

Satan likes to keep us in the pool of pity as I call it, prefering to see us drown there rather than swim to the surface and breath the light of God!

Come to the surface, child of God, child of Light--and breath the light of Heaven...Jesus loves you and will bring you peace...One Day At A Time.

There's nothing you can do about the past...it lies there...but the future is alive and waiting for your touch! Let your past be an example to others as your future will be when you PRAISE GOD for his healing...it may be a slow climb, but sooooooooooo, sooooooo worth it! Trust that, brother, I know this for a fact!!!!

I lay in a bed of depression and God gave me three nights of a dream, asking me which will you choose...I chose the hard, rocky road and came up out of the depression like I had come up out of a pond of water...I gasped for air like I had been there forever...
And when I began breathing, I began crying because I was covered with HIS light and love...amen and amen!

I struggle daily too with my problems, but HE is there, and that's what I focus on...I listen to the radio...Christian stations ONLY...and I meditate (PRAY) constantly...when I go out into the world, I take HIM with me--I think before I speak; I have rid myself of allllll the outer trappings of the world--and I feel better for it!

I don't watch much tv anymore, nor read many papers--instead, I go to churches, not one, but many--and see, and meet believers, now I've found this site, and I'm amazed, just amazed! I have never known how many people out there were in the same place I was--now I DO; and I will NEVER go back to that other place! I backslide in my words sometimes; in my relationships sometimes; but I'm moving ahead and I KNOW IT!

When I doubt it, I make a list of all the good things that God has done for me, for my family/friends or even just people I have only met--it far outweighs the bad stuff.

And I pay attention to 'Serendipity' too, the small good things that happen unexpectedly, filling me with happiness.

Such as; having someone give me something I stood in need of, but didn't have. I was desperate for this blessing, but I had to say to the Lord...it's in your hands now...and to my amazement, the next day it was solved!

I'm more able to 'Let Go--Let God' than I ever have been! Taking baby steps to that kind of faith is HARD, but YOU can do it...you can...reach out and turn on the tv, watch Joyce Meyers; Charles Stanley; Creflo Dollar; Joel Olsten; and a host of other modern day people who help you find JOY in today's life, no matter what your circumstances...please, please, cast off your darkness and find HIM!!!

Don't expect to cast it off all at once, because you have been abusing your mind and body for awhile...drugs and alcohol DEPRESS the central nervous system, and it takes a good year for those effects to exit your body, but you CAN do it--Go with God, Child of Light...Bless you and thank you for being there for me to pray for...I'm still learning to step outside of myself and think of others, but I'M DOING IT!

YOU CAN TOO!!! One, and only ONE, day at a time, that's alllllll we get--even the RICHEST man in the world only gets 24 hours...and a special blessing on your mom tooooo...I sure know where she's at...I surely do....

Heavenly father-Please help Sean to free himself of his addictions. You know his heart Lord and you know that Sean wants to be free of it so badly. Please remove any fear that he may have and help him to focus on staying strong not just in the body but in faith as well. Please help the family get through this difficult time and I ask of this Lord in Jesus precious name. Amen.

Lord, I pray for this man and his family. With every bone in my body Lord, you know I feel his pain, I hear his cries, I feel the sorrow in his heart because I was once him. Take away the urges, the cravings and give him rebirth through Christ. Clear his mind, open his eyes to the beauty of sobriety and let him taste the benefits of sobriety. Replace the need for drugs and alcohol with the need for our Lord. Let him know that there are people that care about him, that want him to live a life of freedom. I pray Lord, break the chains of bondage that keep him under lock and key to alcohol and drugs. Take away the urges and show him there is a better way. Touch him in such a profound way that there will be no mistake of your presence, then I believe he will see the light. The light of the lantern that is being held up by his family, a light so he may find his way back home to them and to you, Lord. I feel his pain, I feel his urges, I feel the ache and guilt as if it was yesterday.......but then I reach out to you and I pray he reaches with both hands, heart, soul, mind and spirit. Please Lord, we beg of you to heal him. In the Precious name of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Salvation. Amen.

O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good; because his mercy endureth forever.
I called upon the Lord in distress; The Lord answered me and set me in a large place.
Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed thereto according to thy word.
