CHEMICAL ADDICTION
FOR THOSE AFFECTED BY CHEMICAL ADDICTION


This circle is for the addicted person, and also for those affected by the addiction of others.


Having suffered from multiple chemical addiction for about 25 years and now living a solid, clean and sober life for 3-plus years, I have devoted a portion of my life to service; helping those suffering from addiction online and at 2 treatment facilities speaking before newcomers to recovery. Additionally, online I offer prayer and consolation when requested.

Beneficent Father, please bestow understanding, patience and courage to those suffering so they may face everyday challenges. By the Passion of the Most Sacred Heart of Lord Jesus Christ, the Infinite Healer, please reach out to those suffering and comfort them in their time of need. Despise not this petition and hear their prayer, and deliver them to the confidence of Your Holy Grace. Be the shepherd in their life as you have guided me, and reassure them to a level of hope in You.
-Amen.

FOR MARAHET (& Daughter):

Heavenly Father, I offer my prayers and the suffering of this day in hope that You look down on those still coping with the disease of chemical addiction...You offered Your only begotten Son through suffering so that we, as your children, would not suffer too...Please Dear Father, release those in denial and those who are captives of active chemical addiction from the bonds of the evil one, who lays the snare to entrap Your children...lead them to the True Fold where Jesus is the Good Shepherd, tending the Flock where they can be freed from bondage and live in Your Light.

Almighty Father, despise not this petition but in Your infinite mercy hear and answer this prayer.

Through the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus I pray. Amen

Thank you Heavenly Father, for 4 years of sobriety and honest, clean living...I realize that, although I have accumulated a few "1 days at a time", that I cannot become complacent in anything I think OR do and I mustn't forget where I came from, ever. I am truly grateful for ALL that you have done for me, and I pray that those who visit this circle will come to better understand all that awaits them through a life in You which starts the recovery process 1 day at a time....

Dear Jesus, I love you above everything and everyone...Thank you.

Blessed Laurel, I have read many of your prayers and I thank God for recovering addicts like you. I too have been blessed with the Lord's guidance since coming into recovery 7/13/97. I pray everyday for the still suffering addict. May God have mercy on them.

Lords_Angel: God Bless you...it is heart-warming to have read your post and to connect with you spiritually as well as on a level of content recovery.

There are those of us who are spared to do the Will of God...this has become increasingly important to me in recovery. Giving of myself is very important in this recovery process, not only to shed light on the positive effects of a 1-day-at-a- time lifestyle, but also to be a living testament to the power of prayer and the ability to come to understand His Will for us. Thank you for your positive message...dominus vobiscum.

Most Holy and Righteous Father, I thank you for all the people on this site that's concerned about other family or friends or themselves. Lord God, with your love,grace and mercy I ask you in Jesus name to show each and everyone how to help the lost and hurting souls. First of all you must seek God's Face and ask him to bring deliverance to these precious people because all they see is darkness. But through the prayers of this site they can find a glimmer of light and that is the word , it convicts and give us a godly sorrow of what we've done. I know it so well because a number of friends, family have been in this web of deceit for far too long. but I know God is able to do all but FAIL.. So I ask God to bring his love and comfort in all the people on this website and their family and friends and may the peace and love of God rule over their hearts, mind and spirit. And pray for my sister Janet, who is an alcoholic and doesn't realize the effects the alcohol has put on her. But the Devil is a lie and will not keep noone on this site God has made everyone of us Free, he's paid the ultimate price for freedom so walk in the freedom of Christ and command your blessings to come forth. God loves us all. Continue in the love of God and don't give up. The battle is not ours but it belongs to God and he is the author and finisher of our faith, Stay strong in the word is my prayer for ALL. God bless you richly. Tameka973

Dear Jesus:

You said, "ask and it shall be given; seek and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto you"; I humbly beseech You, with Your Omnipotent Power to free those who are addicted OR are adversely affected by loved ones that are addicted to be freed from the bondage of chemicals, and to be lead to the TRUE FOLD where YOU are the SHEPHERD in greener pastures. Allow them to bring Glory to Your Holy Name.

For Ryan:
Failure (to surrender) is our biggest enemy...This takes courage and it definitely takes acceptance to things.
I cannot (alone) do for myself what He (God) can do for me..."anything is possible to a man who believes"...said Jesus.

Heavenly Father, please grant Ryan the relief he needs from You to put his life on the right path. Give him the courage to address his issues and grant him the desire to live a fuller life in Your Glory. In the Holy Name of Jesus, the Redeemer. Amen

Laurel, My thoughts and prayers are with you. Jesus is the divine light and the redeemer. He saves us all. Congrats on your three years. I'm sure it wasn't easy but it is so worth it to surrender your life to Jesus Christ.

I offer prayer to my wife, Sandy S., a beloved Wife, Mother, Daughter, Sister... and Grandma to ten wonderful grandkids . Sandy needs spiritual assistance in stopping an awful tobacco habit that is endangering her health and also in the need to becoming health conscious. Sandy spiritual aid to help realize the need for regular care and self awareness.

Heavenly Father, I pray that Sandy and all others so afflicated with the horrible tobacco addiction be graced with your never-ending love.

I further pray that You may provide Sandy with the guidance, strength and hope, the Faith, and the desire to overcome this horrible addiction. This addiction - as all others - utlimately harms not only the abuser, but also all those others who love that person.

Lord, I pray that you give those loved ones the strength and the hope and the Faith to be sustained through the trials and tribulations of this problem and through to its healthy solution of addiction freedom. I pray that You give them and the abuser the necessary tools to work through this problem and ultimately restore them to a life free of addictions.

Please, Father, guide them to Your Peace. I pray through You, the One God, Forever and ever.

Amen.
