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.

God please keep your protectivie hand on BA. She is struggling to make sense of her own behavior. Remove those obstacles that would keep her from reaching the goals and rewards you have in store for her. I pray for healing, for loving kindness, financial health and wealth and above all these God I ask that you fill her with love. Love for herself and for those around her.
In Jesus name amen,

Special note to BA:
You are a very worthwhile person. Give something back today to those who don't deserve it.

for quigly,I was led to give you this verse,and I think that it is for e
veryone,and it comes from romans8:26-27
ALSO, the Spirit helps us with our weakness.We do not know how to pray as we should.But the Spirit himself speaks to GOD for us, even begs GOD for uswith deep feelings that words cannot explain.GODcan see what is in people's hearts.And HE knows what is the mind of theSpirit,because the Spirit speaks to GOD for his people in the wayGOD wants.AMEN.LOVE,KRIS

Kris, Thankyou for keeping me and my family in your prayers. If you could please keep my mother in your prayers. She is going through a very difficult time. Thankyou for for the beautiful poem you wrote to spuds88. Thankyou also to mustard for the inspirational prayers that you leave. I love to wake in the morning and read your posts.
Lord, Bless all those who come here in search of your help for an alcohol or drug addiction. Even more so, help those that are out on the streets using. The people who have no family or friends to turn to. Protect them as they find their way back to You. Bless all the wonderful people who post here to reach others. Thankyou, for allowing me to find comfort in their words.Thankyou for blessing me with such a loving and understanding mate. Please hear his prayers. Thankyou for making him such a strong man. I couldn't imagine anyone being able to continue to stay at my side the way he did after loosing Tommy. Lord, as you know I have had such a hard time learning to deal with this loss. Thankyou for blessing me with a man whose love is unconditional. Help me to be as wonderful to him as he is to me. Lord, hear my prayers. God Bless all

Some of you may know this prayer.. For all those mourning.
Safely Home.
I am home in heaven, dear ones;
oh, so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty
in this everlasting light.

All the pain and grief is over
Every restless tossing passed;
I am now at peace forever,
Safely home in heaven at last.

Did you wonder how I so calmly
Trod the valley of the shade?
Oh! but Jesus love illuminated
Every dark and fearful glade.

And he came himself to meet me
In that way so heard to tread;
And with Jesus' arm to lean on,
Could I have one doubt or dread?

Then you must not grieve so sorely,
For I Love you dearly still;
Try to look beyond earths shadows,
Pray to trust our Fathers will.

There is work still waiting for You,
So you must not idly stand;
Do it now, while life remaineth-
You shall rest in Jesus' land.

When that work is all completed,
He will gently call you Home;
Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
Oh, the joy to see you come!

Kris - I have never before experienced the love and kinship a prayer circle offers and your prayers and concern touch me deeply. I feel stronger and am doing better - I will keep trying - thank you for your support.

I pray for patience and love for my daughter this weekend. I get her back after her being with her dad for 2 weeks. I pray that her and I and my new friend can have fun fishing tomorrow and that she feels loved and not left out. I pray for my co-worker who is struggling with an issue of guilt and unknowing - please give her peace - Help me Lord to be a better person to be who you meant for me to be and to help others. Amen.

A prayer for someone very dear to my heart in recovery. Dear Lord, please bless JBVM. I am so proud of her. She has kept her willpower & strength through very trying times. Facing some of the most difficult times you place in front of us; she has kept her grace, her wonderful charisma, her amazing sense of humor, and has remained the very best friend a person could ask for. Always caring , always giving and always putting a smile on someone's face. Thankyou for giving her such strength. Thankyou for blessing her with an angel that will always love her and be with her. And with that beuatiful angel on her shoulder, I have faith that she will continue to prosper. Keep her strong & always let her angels Love shine on her. Amen.

Dear readers of this page I love you all. In truth you are God's beloved Adorable Angels. Each of you has a direct connection to God. You can listen to his voice. Whenever you hear something true and loving it emanates from Him.
Romans 8 is my favourite chapter in the Bible, as it is so pure and spiritual. in verses 26/27 we read
God, Spirit supports us in our weakness (TCNT)It is the Spirit of God himself that guides us in our prayers.
Here we are expressing the Mind of the Spirit (KJ)and we are doing God's will. We are pleading for God's own people in God's own way (NEB)and this is in harmony with God's own will.
This is what healing is all about, bringing yourself into co-incidence with the peace of God that passeth all understanding. This is dwelling in the revelation (John 8:32 NEB), this is knowing the Truth and the truth alone. and this brings freedom, healing, joy and peace. This Kingdom of peace, heaven, harmony is within the grasp of each one of us today, right where we are. All we have to do is humbly and meekly let go of all our fears and guilt, our condemnation and excuses, and LET God's will be done, Let Love outshine the night of darkness in our lives and LET our God given light shine that we may unselfishly bless all those around us never counting the cost, thinking only good thoughts, we are indeed Angels of God.
Love to you all and God bless

Happy Monday all, I pray that God will answer your prayers Bapetnut. Good job on the 9 days - I pray for you to be strong and keep up the good work.

I want to thank God for the turn around my life has taken even though the change is a little scary. I found a man who is very warm and caring and very good with my daughter. He just has so much to deal with which means I have to also - so I pray that I can be strong enough to help him through whatever his troubles are with his ex-wife and his son. Give me strength lord and wisdom to do what is right. I want to be a good, loving person and sometimes I know I am self centered - please give me patience and understanding when it comes to T and B and his son. I pray that I can keep working on controlling my drinking - Help me to focus on things that don't pertain to partying. Amen

Hi, Im still not drinking but things arent going as smooth as I thought they would. You see I used to get along great with my b/f mom, she is now at our house in the garage telling my b/f not to take me back( the drunk)..I really dont think she understands that Im serious this time and have God in my life and will NOT go back to the bottle and ruin my relationship again, and hit him, etc..Please pray, Im causing a wedge betweem his mom and him and Im scared that they wont talk anymore because he still loves me and says he still wants me around no matter what his parents think right now, but its hard on me thinking they think Im still that bad drunk oldself,which Im not anymore. Oh Dear Lord I pray for patience, strength, willpower and pray I no and do your will for my life. I pray for all suffering addiction and what comes afterwords like what Im experiencing.Please give my b/f trust again and strength to get thru this and not play tug a war with me and his mom, I dont want him to have to choose..I pray all experience Gods love and see how he can help you make it thru, just ask for his help and give 100% of your problems and believe me he will help, it's hard daily but Im learning and staying Sober:-)

dear bapetnut;-i read your entrys and let me say how very proud to see to see you are doing well in staying sober, everyday counts,everyday matters.it does amount to being one of the hardest ,but the most rewarding things you do .becauseyou are conquering over something that is no longer conquering you.you are winning the battle everyday you go another day sober.and the very most valuble thing youhave is your life.so you have that gift of trying to make everyday count and make the most of it.WITH GOD YOU CAN ACCOMPLISH,ACHEIVE,THE IMPOSSIBLE, BECAUSE NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD .I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHICH STRENGHTETH ME.PHILLIPIANS4:13.IT IS ONE OF MY MOST FAVORITE VERSES.I DO PRAY THAT YOU WILL CONTINUE YOUR GOALS IN TRYING TO GO BACK AND GET YOUR CAARRER STARED.TRUST IN GOD AND ALLOW HIM TO LEAD THE PATH OF YOUR STEPS AND HE WILL GUIDE YOU WHERE YOU NEED TO GO. TO A PLACE THAT IS PLEASING TO HIM . GOOOD LUCK HONEY.I WISH YOU ALL THE BEST.LOVE IN CHRIST, KRIS.

Thanks Kris,

Life definitely seems to be looking up. I want to pray for this man who has been so nice to my daughter and I. I pray that he can get over his past and his anger with his exwife and be there for his son. His son seems to have some anger issues which I'm not used to dealing with. I pray that God can help them both to get through the difficulties of a divorce. I pray that B can learn how to deal with the issues with his son and to teach him respect. I also pray that I can learn not to be such a materialistic person. I know that this man doesn't have much in the way of financial gain because of his situation and I pray that I can look past that and care for him because of his beautiful heart and not dwell on superficial things.


BAPETNUT

Hi all,
Things seem to be looking up. My b/f and mom made up:-) I have an appt. this morning at Apollo College for a Medical asst, I pray I can get a loan to go to school and move forward. It's getting easier not drinking or smoking. Sometimes I miss the feeling of drinking and relaxing but I started taking walks with my Dog's and feel better and no this is much better for me than the Bottle.I have a saying that I got out of an AA book, hope you all like it: it helps me get thru the day;
AND ACCEPTANCE IS THE ANSWER TO ALL MY PROBLEMS TODAY.WHEN I AM DISTURBED, IT IS BECAUSE I FIND SOME PERSON,PLACE,THING OR SITUATION---SOME FACT OF MY LIFE---UNACCEPTABLE TO ME, AND I CAN FIND NO SERENITY UNTIL I ACCEPT THAT PERSON,PLACE,THING OR SITUATION AS BEING EXACTLY THE WAY IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE AT THIS MOMENT. NOTHING, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING HAPPENS IN GOD'S WORLD BY MISTAKE. UNTIL I COULD ACCEPT MY ALCHOLISM, I COULD NOT STAY SOBER;UNLESS I ACCEPT LIFE COMPLETELY ON LIFE'S TERMS, I CANNOT BE HAPPY. I NEED TO CONCENTRATE NOT SO MUCH ON WHAT NEEDS TO BE CHANGED IN THE WORLD AS ON WHAT NEEDS TO BE CHANGED IN ME AND IN MY ATTITUDES..
GOD BLESS ALL..

Hi,
Hope all are doing well. I just pray that a loan will go thru so I can attend school in the fall. Fighting daily staying Sober, the feelings of stress come back and I want a drink or a cig but I breath a few then it passes. I pray the Lord gives me strength to keep clean and have a fullfilling life. I wish the best for all..GOD bless all,

Listening to my CD's heard this song and it made me think of you
"One Sweet Day"
Sorry I never told you all i wanted to day, now it's too late to hold you, 'cause you;ve gone away so far away.Never had i imagined living without your smile, feeling and knowing you hear me, keeps me alive.And I know your shining down on me from heaven, Like so many friends we've lost along the way, and I know eventually we'll be todether, One Sweet Day.Darling I never showed you, assumed you'd always be theretook your presents for granted, but I always cared, and I miss the love we shared. Although the sun will shine the same, I'll always look to a brighter day, Lord I know when I lay me down to sleep, You will aways listen as I pray. I know eventually we will be together, one sweet day.
- Mariah Carey

See ya when I get there!
Missin' you until then!

Kris, Thankyou for keeping all of those that I posted for in your prayers. You and your family are always in my thoughts and prayers.
Bapetnut continue to stay strong. I am happy to see that you are doing well. I may not always leave a post but I do read every prayer & keep you all close to my heart and in my prayers. I'm proud of you for just how much you have accomplished so far. I know others that have tried the non-alcoholic beer and it really seems to help. Stay on the path that you have found. I will continue to keep you all in my prayers. God Bless! Love, Renee

Kimmie, Thankyou for sharing that song. I've never heard it but I'll probably download it today. It's so beautiful & comforting. It's kind of funny, yesterday, I found a letter from you from '94. "Good Times" :) The letter said " we finally did the laverne & shirley thing" like we were planinng since we were about 5 yrs. old. It got me to thinking of me & you Then to me, you and Tommy and all the things we did as kids. They were so many memories flooding my mind. All happy. Remember sitting on the steps on the corner playing with the talluto's dough for hours then eating it?!?! haha :) Why did we want to grow up so fast? lol. We had it made back then. I was happy and surprised to see your post. I hope that you and the kids are doing well. I hope your parents are well also. I always think of you with love. I pray that your not angry with me. I hope you get everything in life that you could ever need. Tommy used to tell me that you deserve only the best. He was right. I hope that you are happy, I hope that you have found some peace after loosing your brother. I know how much it hurt you. In my heart, I know that Tommy hears you when you play that song. Him & his music :) I always find comfort in songs too. I like to think that he's sitting right there with me singing. As I'm sure he is with all of us. I know that he is Proud of his little sis' and watching over you always. Of course his little man & princess too. I miss you. Love Always, Renee

Consolation

"Earth hath no sorrows
that heaven can't heal"
As I softly reapeat it,
Great comfort I feel.
And I long to reach out
To those in the storm
Of sorrow's dark night
and point to the morn,
when joys will abound
Up there in the skies,
As God gently wipes
The tears from our eyes!
oh, then we'll see clearly
The faces we adore
And greet our loved ones
who've gone on before.
Gone every heartache
That here we may feel;
For "Earth hath no sorrows
that Heaven can't heal!"
- Alice Hansche Mortenson
