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.

Dar Father, I, too,lost a Tom...to a heroin overdose. I pray you will hold all addicts in your loving hands, keep them safe until they can come t you. Comfort the family and friends who are torn apart by this disease.."looking to see whom it can devour". Lord, most addicts are sensitive and intelligent which sometimes makes it harder for them to get help, open their hearts and minds to your wisdom...for the "Toms" we have lost let not their deaths be for nothing...if one person is savedbecause of this prayer circle, all will rejoice. Give us all your love and wisdom, hold Tom close to your heart. lauriejoy

to shevaun...I have been clean from heroin for 2yrs...after many,many attempts...do not give up on Jim...It was my mother and all my relatives that prayed,I believe, that helped me get here alive...I will pray for Jim and add him to the prayer list at church...tell him to hang in there. Its hard because one bad decision and you're using again...just remember to tell him that even if he slips up one day, don't throw in the towel thinking that he screwed up and its over, start over the next day. I used to get so discourged if I used once, I'd just give up and start up all over again. This disease will make him think ...what' the point, I'll never stay clean..even when I really try I still relapse...once a junkie, always a junkie.........addiction is really a disease of the mind.....it's like hell on earth but God is all powerful and it can be beaten with his help...lauriejoy I'm willing to help..

The Prayer Of JABEZ

Jabez cried out to
the God of Israel,
"Oh, that you would bless me
indeed & enlarge my territory! Let
your hand be with me, & keep me
from harm so that I
will be free from pain." And God
granted his request.

1st Chronicles 4:10

Dear God,
I lift up all the people who feel defeated today. Struggling & giving up.
Here's a poem that may give you strenght to make it a better day. I pray that your angel will sing this in your ears. A melody that will heal the pain and make it a beautiful day.

DON'T QUIT
When things go wrong
as they sometimes will.
When the road you're trudging
seems all uphill.
When the funds are low
and the debts are high.
And you want to smile,
but you have to sigh.
When care is pressing you down a bit...
By all means pray, and don't you quit.
Success is failure turned inside out.
God's hidden gift in the clouds of doubt
You never can tell how close you are.
It may be near when it's seems afar.
So trust in the Lord
when you're hardest hit...
It's when things go wrong,
that you must not quit!

Dear GOD,

Bless Tommy's family and give the strength to carry on. I myself am going to a similiar situation.

My husband is a heroin addict and has gone to numerous bouts with rehab, but only stays for about a week. And a week is nothing to a person who's been an addict for the past six years.

I don't know what to do with him he went to Puerto Rico for 6 months. His mom told me he was clean but it was a lie, he was still using over there.

Well before he left he had stolen a bunch of stuff from our four children and myself. And the second day he came back he sold my DVD which I had replaced because he stole my other one. He's stolen from my children he is such a compulsive liar.

I suggested that he go to a rehab for about 6 months to a year but he refuses to go. Saying that he's going to find a job. Well nobody is going to hire a heroin addict, and his appearance says it all.

Please pray for my four young children and myself that he may get the help that he needs. I'm at the end of my rope if I throw him to the streets he has nowhere to go. But meanwhile I losing all of my personal possessions.

Please pray for us. I pray that it won't be too late.

Thanks
Maria

God is able,HE WILL NEVER LEAVE US OR FORSAKE US, hE IS MY REFUGE AND SHELTER,IN HIM SHALL I TRUST. ITS SO HARD SOME DAYS TO UNDERSTAND HOW THIS ADDICTION CAN HAVE SUCH A STRANGLEHOLD ON MY LIFE, FOR MARIA WHO'S HUSBAND IS ADDICTED...WE ALL BECOME LIARS AND SOME OF US THEIVES WHEN WE ARE STRUNG-OUT. i HATE TO SAY IT BUT THE BEST THING MY FAMILY DID WAS REFUSE TO LET ME COME HOME(EVEN TO VISIT) UNTIL I WENT INTO LONG TERM TREATMENT....MY MOM WOULD COME SEE ME AND TALK TO ME ON THE PHONE. BELIEVE ME I TRIED EVERY ANGLE TO GET AROUND THIS...USING GUILT(WHAT IF I HAVE TO SLEEP ON THE STREETS AND SOMEBODY KILLS ME) I SAID HORRIBLE THINGS TO HER TO TRY AND GET MY OWN WAY WHEN MY MANIPULATIONS DIDN"T WORK....I'D PROMISE TO GET A JOB, SAY IWAS GOING TO REHAB BUT THEY HAD NO OPENINGS,ETC.ETC. IT WAS ONLY WHEN I HAD NO WHERE ELSE TO TURN DID I GET SERIOUS ABOUT REHAB AND ACTUALLY STAYED WHEN I GOT THERE. YOUR CHILDREN NEED YOUR STRENGH AND ENERGY RIGHT NOW AND ,UNFORTUNATLY,US ADDICTS DRAIN EVERYONE AROUND US. I WILL PRAY FOR YOU AND HIM BECAUSE I KNOW GOD CAN HELP BUT TRY TO GO TO SOME ALANON MEETING,TOO. IF YOU DON"T LIKE THE FIRST ONE,GO AGAIN UNTIL YOU FIND A GROUP YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE WITH...MY MOM SAYS IT SAVED HER SANITY WHEN I WAS ACTIVE IN MY ADDICTION. ANYWAYS,GOD BLESS YOU AND ALL OF US WHO ARE FIGHTING THIS BATTLE . GOD BLESS THOSE WHO HAVE LOST LOVED ONES..TOM"S FAMILY AND OTHERS....I'M SO GLAD THIS PRAYER CIRCLE IS HERE. LAURIEJOY

"IF IT SHOULD BE"
(Dedicated to the one with the biggest heart in the whole world...and of course Superman)

If it should be that I grow weak,
and pain should keep me from my sleep,
then you must do what must be done,
for this battle couldn't be won.
You will be sad, I understand,
Don't let your grief then stay your hand.
For those days more than all the rest,
your love for me withstood the test.
We've had so many happy years,
what is to come can hold no fears.
I've gone to where my needs they'll tend
but never I forget who was with me until the end.
You held me firm and spoke to me,
Until my eyes could no longer see.
I know in time you will see
all the kindness you've done for me.
Although my hand its last has waved,
from pain and suffering I've been saved.
You'd not want me to suffer so
God called for me to go.
We've been so close, we two, these years,
don't let your heart hold back its tears.
You still have HIS work to do,
but don't fear for I'll be watching you.
May God bless you and keep you,
for HE and I will see you through.

JBVM Sometimes I feel like I don't know
Sometimes I feel like checking out
I wanna get it wrong
Can't always be strong
And love it won't be long...
Oh Angie
Don't you cry
Oh child
Wipe the tears from your eyes
You know we need you to be strong
When the day is as dark as the night is long
Feel like trash
You make me feel clean
I'm in the black
Can't see or be seen
Light my way
There is a silence that comes to a house
Where no one can sleep
I guess that's the price of love
I know it's not cheap
When I was all messed up
And heard it calling in my head
Your love is like a light bulb
You know what needs to be said
Light my way
JBVM
The Lord would never turn his back on any of us. As loyal servants to the Lord, we should never turn our backs. Do what is right not what is easy. Amen

Lord, i came here tonight because i myself could do with more prayer in my life, i have my own problems, yes, but they cower in comparison to those around me, but still i seem narrowminded, stubborn and ignorant to those hurt and afflicted, i too feel afflicted but my vices and disease by mine and Your will alone are probably easily conquerable, but i've not yet done that, so maybe You could direct me today in being more mindful of those around me, in turn i hope to see clearly enough to be open to being compassionate and willing to receive, because i havn't and that hurts, myself and especially others, i don't think i will try this time, if i could have your blessing i will do.

Dear God, i feel the need to pray, i haven't for the longest time, so as rusty as i am i'm asking again, i pray that You look upon Tommy's cuz Ren who has dome an absolutely astounding job with this site in using it as an instrument of Your peace, so many have sought and found refuge and solace in her words and expressed thoughts and feelings, to those who need a lil nudge with a wink and smile she looks eye to eye with and shares her story, and as hard a one as it is her cordialtiy and compassion rings through those sceens in front of a face damp with tears, i am blessed to know such a woman, things are always popping up to challenge her the same as any of us, but when they get abit large i ask You to touch her on the cheeks, send a warmth to her, one she can be aware of, those warm hugs are so vital to health and heart and i just think she deserves a gazillion of em'
for this i pray to You
Amen.

Almighty God, Creator, My Friend:
Be with Tommy's family, that they will be comforted by your presence, that they will feel guided, supported by those around them, strengthened to face this loss, this tragedy. May my family know your presence in our lives and feel guided and strengthened to deal with my sister's problem, know the right way to deal with it. Protect her daughter, keep her from harm. Be present with my mom and her friend, that they will know you are present with them as they travel to visit my sister and her daughter. Keep them safe during their travels. Be with all those who are suffering from the terrible disease of chemical dependency, and those around them, who would be caught up in the destruction. Grant that the circles of humanity and divinity around these afflicted would grow and envelop them in loving kindness, that they would be open to this, that they would know peace and freedom from bondage. Shalom
