Father, I join with Anne and our prayer partners at beliefnet and ask that you remove the need for alcohol from her father and bring him into your light. Lift any burdens from his soul that cause him to turn to alcohol instead of leaning on You and the love of his precious daughter. Father, let him want to be sober and re-experience life the way that You meant for him to. If it is Your will Father, heal this grandmother of her cancer. Let her have peace and comfort as she goes through her treatments. Father, I pray that Anne has found a job that meets her financial and emotional needs. Bring her comfort and security in this difficult time. We thank You Father for hearing and answering our prayers. Amen.

Dear Lord,
I have been praying and thinking about this family as you well know. I ask not much for myself, but for my friends. Please take away this disease of alcoholism and guide this person into treatment of either AA or a hospital. It is a disease and needs attention!!! The cancer is also is a disease and I realize this, however with today's medicine their are miracles. Please show your loving grace! Please make Anne feel secure with this new job. I am praying that with one day at a time this will all fall into place and peace will come. You are such a sweet forgiving Lord...Amen

Portlandlady....Our Father listens to those who pray!!! I am so grateful myself to see the miracles that God gives us!!! It is one step at a time on the other issues. I am married to a recovering alcoholic. I totally understand the frustrations and emotions that come with this disease...but the beauty of all this is that there is a way to beat it!!!!! Prayer!!!
Not just prayer, but hard work! This disease does not develop overnight...If you must, try going to an Al-Anon meeting....you will learn how to manage your life!!!!I have a book I would like to send you...If you would like..It is called " Courage to Change." It has saved me from letting someone else's disease destroy me too!!! It makes so much sense. If you are interested please email me at Angelheart323@aol.com, and I will be happy to give you this book. In recovery process, the beauty is to be able to help someone else. It would make me feel good for you to have it!!!!
Lord help and protect this woman from her sadness!!!!! Amen
Congrats on your job!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Father, I pray that you will help Anne remain strong in the face of adversity. Cancer and alcoholism are two very dark illnesses that many of us face today. My father was an alcoholic for most of his life and my sister is recovering from cervical cancer. I know firsthand how your soul can be tormented when loved ones are afflicted with one or the other. The only thing that helped me was to pray for my family members and myself, as well. I finally had to let go of all the anger I felt for my father and all the fear I felt for my sister and turn things over to the only One who would be able to handle these things...God. There were still many pain filled days, but I was able to "let go and let God". My father has now passed on to his heavenly home and was alcohol free for four years prior to his death and my sister is entering her five year mark for her cancer. My family has been truly blessed in many ways. I pray (and I know) that God will do the same with your family...the hard part is that He will do it in his time. So, keep praying and hang on to all the beauty in your life...things will get better in time. God bless you now and always.

Lord,
Thank You for the enjoyment Anne is now feeling in this new job--a true testament to the fact that when one door shuts, another opens! Thank You for the mysterious ways in which You work. Please help Anne to be strong in faith as she endures the pain of watching her loved ones suffer. Give her strength, not only for her own well-being but for her family as well. Lord, if it is in Your will, heal her grandmother of her cancer and brain tumor. Please ease her physical and mental anguish as she faces this trial. Please inspire Anne with the right words at the right time when it comes to talking with her father. Please lead him into finding help for his addiction. Give Anne wisdom to face all things, and reward her with a closer relationship with You, Lord.
In Christ, amen

Dear Anne,
You have been in my prayers! I have not been able to use my pc the way I would have liked too! You have a lot in common with me. My husband is in AA..( I keep my fingers crossed), and my sister was ill with cancer and killed herself. Yikes! So much to have to deal with! You know what though...God really does love us and will make things better..You might not see it right away..but it will come! Have faith!
May God Bless You and Your Entire Family!! Amen

Dear Anne,
Before I came to post a prayer here for you, I went to post a prayer for my friends here! How ironic that I want to meet all of you!!!! I guess that is the frustrating part of this prayer connection we have all managed to find! God works in mysterious ways, but he sure knows his stuff!!!! I read your requests for help when it comes to alcoholism!!! I suffered many years of hurt from this terrible disease. My husband is now 3 years sober! Before this period it was a living hell!!! The one thing that I have learned from this, is that loved ones need to take care of themselves or you will go down too!!!! It is not your fault, and you cannot stop the person. They have to do it! All you can do is pray for them!!!
It took me a long, long time to realize that! Be STRONG! Today, I have to bite my tongue when my husband is away from home so much to attend meetings. Sure it is frustrating, but when it is your father's time to turn it over to God, you will know it! I have prayed for him, and I will pray for your father!!!!
I just know that when I die, I will be known in heaven as the pain in butt who called out to every angel out there!!!!
As for the cancer issue, I will pray for inner peace to come!
Dear Lord,
Please keep this family safe & continue to heal the wounds that affect this family!!! Make sure you let Anne know in her heart that I Marilyn who lives miles away will continue to pray for her!!!Amen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Peace to you Anne... :)

Thank You for continuing to bless Anne--please keep her safe from harm and contented with her life.
