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.

Hello to all. I am hoping that you have room for one more "New Kid on the Block". I have read some of the prayers you have posted for the past few days and am amazed by the love and concern that you show to one another. Just to give you a little back ground on my situation; My husband of 10 years recently told me he had a drug problem and wanted to kick the habit. The problem had started when he had lost his job and was searching for a new one. I never knew there was a problem. He never seemed high when he was around me and our daughter. We were blessed when he found a great job that he has had for 5 months now, but he could not tell me where all his money was going. He has had a history of cheating on me, so I thought he was doing it again. I never imagined he was on drugs. He has always been so against them. He came to me with the idea of moving to the country (we now live in a big city and we are both country folks at heart), so I jumped at the idea. This is when he came to me and told me about the problem. I ask why he chose now to tell me and he said I was so happy about the house, that he wanted to straighted up his act before he lost everything. Well, I did a lot of praying and some research and found a program for him to get involved with, but because of his job, he could not make scheduled appointments (he works out of town), but he told me he was strong enough to do this on his own, so I trusted him. He made arrangesment that I could pick up his paycheck and I was controlling the money again, so he did not have the extra funds to support his habit. Everything was going great. I thanked God everyday for keeping him straight. On Monday he had a relaps and fell hard. He called me crying and asked me to help him. Ofcourse I did what I had to to help him out, butI don't know what to do anymore. Do I just give up on him? Please pray for my family. Lord please give my husband the streangth to stay straight. Also give me the streangth I need to be supportive of him. I know this is an illness and he needs help, but all I can think is the money he has wasted and how my daughter and I have done without so he can get high. I pray that God will help me get through these thoughts and give my husband the support he needs. I am trying my best to remain strong and have faith that God will see us through this. I was brought up a Christian but am ashamed to say I have gotten away from going to church. I know now, I need God in my live more than ever. The last church I went to, I sang in the church choir and pray now "Open the eyes of my heart Lord". And I pray for all the others that are dealing with situations like mine. Lord please guide and protect us. God is good all the time and all the time God is good. Amen Thanks for listening to my request. I believe in the power of pray. Please help my family beat this thing that Saten has thrown in front of us. Bonnie

Greetings my dear friends. BA sorry you had a trying day. I'm with you on the O'duls though. I did that labor day weekend, made driving home a breeze. Dearest Bonnie my heart goes out to you. My prayers are with you. You can't change your husband, just as I can't change my dad. They've made there choices. The difference is I hear yours asking for help, it's jut a matter of whether he has hit his bottom or not. You're in the situation my mom was for 19 years. She prayed and prayed and one day got angry at God. She asked Him "Why aren't you doing something about this?" God repied.."I'm trying if you'd get out of the way!" We to often give it God take it back. I am allowing God to do a work in my dad as there are many prayer warriors right now, interceding in his behave. Meanwhile I'm allowing God to do a work in me. He is healing my wounds. Tonight I cried again. I thought after a month of tears I was better, but my youngest son is being evicted, his girlfriend is pregnant and I am helpless to do anything. He went to his dad again for help. I'm sure all he got was a sermon and "I'll be praying for you". That's all he's ever had to offer his sons. I believe in the power of prayer, but we have to do our part and you don't forsake your first born!! There dad has never been there for them in 20 years except to preach his believes to them. They believe in God and were saved at a young age, but are bitter from having their dads beliefs crammed down there throats. He talks a good talk, but one has to learn to walk the walk. Don't give up on your husband, I can't give up on my dad. I have distanced myself for now, till I can sort this all out. I will say though and you already know it. You can't fight it by yourself. My dad has been conning us for so many years, he's in denial. "Help is for the weak" is usually there best defense. "I can quit anytime I want to". NOPE not without God and not without his servants. Let me think on this some more. YOu keep the faith take care of your daughter and let God do the rest. Please everyone take a moment today to remember the victims and those who sacrificed on 9/11. God Bless You. Jesus loves you and I appreciate all of you.

Greetings, I'm back hoping you all have a blessed day. I don't know who Kris is but I pray she is o.k, as you do. Quigley,I missed you hope things are well with you. Cindy as always thank you for your strong words of hope and encouragement. BA it's a brand new day and we all have to take those baby steps in our recovery process, you hang in there. I know you believe in the Lord, now's the time to start believing in yourself. I am still new to some of you so I will send my heart felt prayers and gratitude to getting to know you throught this sight,and look forward to the fellowship. Bonnie you know in your heart what you need to do, not neccessarily what you want to do. That's the difference. Your husband came clean with you and now has an obligation to seek help, if he is sincere, if not you may need to take your daughter and seperate yourself for a time,or go down with him. My dad can't even face me with the truth. All I have is "hearsay",but from very good sources. My dad is in the paranoid stage,he's asking around if anyone has talked to me, and what am I saying? Prior to this we were so close. I don't think my pain right now would even phase him. He's only worried about saving his own skin, and using my sons as a shield to do it. I trust God has a plan and if I am to be the one to see it come to light he will give me the courage. God will give you the courage to seperate yourself from your husband and his addiction,until such time as he is really ready to get help. That is between him and God. I do not judge the heart of a person. My prayers are with you as anyone on this sight can tell you, either way you go it's going to be a rocky road, but remember Jesus is right there baring your yoke if you allow Him."Cast your burdens upon Him". "He will not leave us, nor forsake us." One day at a time.
Cindy W

Good Morning all and thanks for making me feel so welcome. Thanks for your prayers. BA, you ask if he was religious, he is a believer, but doesn't think he needs to go to church. When he was a child his grandparents made him go everday, and he says that he is burnt out because of it. But I feel that is just a way out, because that was 25 years ago. I am looking for a church for us to go to. He has told me he will go. So that is a plus. Hubby has an appointment Friday for an evalustion and he has also spoken with someone from NARCON and has found out some meeting times. He told me that the only time he feels weak is when he is out of town by himself, when he is at home with the family or has his workers with him at the motel at night, he is fine. The man from the hotline told him that is when the disease gets the best of you. It knows you are alone and it can keep you company. Cindy, hubby said the same thing about getting help, "Why pay someone when I know what the problem is. I can kick this myself." Well he now knows he can't. He said he has no control over this and now knows that he needs help. He said he never realized what he would loose until the other night; his freedom, his job, his family. It hurt me that his family wasn't the first thing that he thought of. But I know the drug (cocaine) makes him think of himself before others. Cindy I will be praying for your sons and your father and for the girlfriend and you, ofcourse. :-) I pray that God will open your dads eyes and heart to him and make the right choices. I have never had a close relationship with my dad, he left when I was only 6 and my sister was 6 months, he was an alcholic and abusive, so I can only imagine how it hurts you to see your dad like this. BA, sorry to hear of your bad day. But hang in there and stay strong. Your right, tomorrow is another day, all we can do is pray that things get better. So I will close now with a short prayer for all of us:
Dear Lord, I come to you this morning and ask for your guidance for my husband and all who seek your help. Please wrap a hedge of protection around all and let them feel your unconditional love. Please be with BettyAnn and help her to remain strong and believe in herself. Lord I ask that you watch over Cindy and her family and give her the streanght that she needs. Lord, no matter the age, we are all your children, and will always need you. Please help us to remember that. Dear God, you know all the needs of all of here, please give us the guidence to make it through the day. In your presious name, Amen.
I hope you all have a bless day. I know I will, because I found you. Talk to you soon. Bonnie

Hey all,

I had the day off yesterday and what a day it was. My boyfriend ended up w/ the flu and was throwing up
and then the school called and sd my daughter had head lice. So you can just imagine how my day went
and now on top of it I donít feel very well. Iím interviewing for a new job - it doesnít pay as well but I just
donít know if I can keep working here anymore. Pray for me that I can make the right decision job wise.
Iím feeling defeated today and I need lots of prayer - I havenít even had a chance to read everyoneís
posts - my boss is breathing down my back - love ya all God Bless - Iíll try and write later.

Dear Lord,

I pray that I can make the right decision when it comes to changing jobs whether I should or I shouldnt. I
pray Brett starts to feel better emotionally and physically. Watch over him Lord, he feels like he is having
another nervous breakdown - help him through all of this court stuff with his ex. I pray that we can be
there for each other through our hard times. Help him to find a way to make money and feel good about
himself again. I pray T knows that I love her. Help me to learn to be more patient w/ her. Give me
strength and willpower against alcohol Lord. I thank you for the willpower that you have given me - itís
more than I have ever had. Please keep me on the right path. I pray for all of my friends here on this site,
BA, Renee, CW, Kris & Cindy - watch over them Lord - help them w/ their issues they are facing in life -
God Bless them and keep them safe. Amen

Bonnie,

I just read your post (yes, I'm supposed to be working but what the heck) I feel for you in your situation -but I think the worst thing you can do is give up on an addict. I pray that God can give you the strength to be there for your husband because he needs you right now - I also pray that your husband can overcome his addiction to whatever it is he is addicted to. It's possible with God - Lord, please give bonnie the strength she needs to be patient w/ her husband and the faith in you to know that her husband can change his ways. I pray that Bonnie's husband can find the willpower to give up his addiction - please watch over them both Lord and give them courage, faith and love.

Just a quick note before I leave for the day (I should be working too. LOL)Quigley, thanks for the prayers and words of encouragement. My husband and I have been through a lot in the 13 years that we have been together, so I am not giving up now. Atleast I am going to give it my best shot as long as he shows me he wants to kick the habit. There have been many times that I could have walked away, but something keeps me around. One thing is my daughter. My husband and I were both brought up without our fathers in our lives and we made a promise to each other our child would not grow up that way. I know it isn't good to stay together just for the kids, but I do love this man, and I know he is a good man, he just stumbles and falls sometimes. I pray everynight that God will see us through this and give up peace. So goodnight to you all and God's blessings to each and everyone.

Good Evening to all!
First things first! Quigley, and BA !!! I am so proud of you two not drinking!! It just makes me grin! :)Two beers in THREE days, BA? good for YOU!:)Now make it 2 beers in FOUR days! The weekend is coming up, so I will say extra prayers for you and Quigley!! :)
I too am concerned for Kris. I miss her sooo much. She is SUCH a wonderful person!! God is with her. This I know without a doubt!! I've emailed her 2/3 times too.
Quigley, I read where you applied for another job. You know we have prayed for you & your job where you are now, and nothing seems to be improving, so my prayers for your job are going to change a little. Just wanted you to know that.:) Keep resisting satan, and SEEKING Gods help. You and BA are going to be fine! :)
Cindy W., glad to see you back!! You will find great comfort and encouragement here. As well as WONDERFUL people.This site is SUCH A BLESSING!!!
Bonnie, what can I say? You are on a very rough road indeed!! Welcome to the site! Been there!! Read back, and you too will find tears of broken hearts, tears of joy, and friendships that are just fantastic!!!
Renee!!! Great post! I enjoyed it very much. HOW ARE YOU? Are you doing ok? Bono & Grandmother? What about your friend and husband(Brian?) I pray that he is still on the right track, and things are getting better for you, and them. Thank you again for this site!! I so look foreward to hooking up here every day, and praying together!! There is so much power in prayer!
My faith was mentioned in earlier posts a couple of days ago, and I just felt like I should tell you all about MY FAITH IN GOD!! The more you stay in Gods Word, the stronger your faith becomes. GOD LOVES US SO VERY MUCH WE CANT EVEN BEGIN TO IMAGINE!! If it were not for my faith, I hate to even think! I'd probably be in a rubber room somewhere!:)Seriously- Cindy W, you are going to be facing some really tough decisions ahead I feel. They will not be easy ones, but if you BELIEVE, and ALWAYS SEEK GODS FACE, YOU WILL COME THROUGH VICTORIOUS! The war is already WON!! WE just have to fight the battles! GOD IS THE ONLY WAY WE CAN FIGHT AND WIN THE BATTLES. PERIOD! GOD IS THE ONE THAT PROTECTS US! GOD IS THE ONE THAT GUIDES US! GOD IS THE ONE THAT TELLS US WHAT TO DO, AND WHEN TO DO IT!!! IF GOD IS FOR US WHO CAN BE AGAINST US???? When we rebuke satan in JESUS NAME, he HAS to run! He KNOWS he doesn't have a chance! I have had to make some VERY HARD decisions in my life, ones I agonized over for months on end. God had already led me to know what I had to do, and He is so paitent with us He watches out for every situation while we struggle, and we just have to completely TRUST HIM WITH EVERY FIBER OF OUR BEING! God has NEVER let me down, or pointed me in the wrong direction. But, we have to do our part!! WE CANT JUST SIT AROUND, AND WAIT FOR HIM, BECAUSE HE TELLS US IN HIS WORD TO SEEK (means to look)FIRST (not second, or when we have time) the kingdom of GOD, and all we ask for we shall recieve! There have been many many miriacles in my life. I AM A MIRICALE!!! SO ARE ALL OF YOU! God will never leave us. He is always right there-just waiting-for a hello,a simple thanks God, anything from us because He loves us. You can JUST BE YOU with God. He made you, and GOD DOESNT MAKE MISTAKES! THANK GOD SINCERELY EVERY SINGLE DAY THAT YOUR LOVED ONES ARE ALIVE!DONT FORGET TO DO THAT!!GOD PROTECTS!! THE WORLD OF DRUGS IS ONE OF satans BEST TOOLS, AND IT IS A VERY VISCIOUS,MEAN, COLD UNCARING, UNFEELING WORLD. ITS A VERY SCARRY WORLD TOO. NOT JUST FOR US. ITS REAL SCARRY FOR THE ADDICT TOO. When you dont know what to pray, God tells us that JESUS makes intersession for us to God the Father, as does the Holy Spirit make groans, and mutterings, that we cant understand. SEE? GOD EVEN MADE A WAY FOR US TO REACH HIM WHEN WE DONT KNOW WHAT TO SAY!Isnt He good to us? THANK YOU LORD FOR LOVING US, AND FOR THINKING OF EVERY THING BEFORE WE EVEN KNOW WHAT WE WILL NEED!!
I'll be right back. :)

First let me say to all of you THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS AND COMPASSION. I don't mean to be selfish at this moment,but I've been up all night crying and sharing with my family. My dad was arrested and it's in the paper this morning. How do I even begin to put into words everything I'm feeling, so many emotions as one time. Like Bonnie said it hurts he didn't put his family first. My stepmother came over to tell me and she was lying through her teeth, trying to protect her butt. She really just wanted to know if my sons or I had narced my dad out. I love my dad and he's 60 years old, he is diabetic with horrible sores all over his body (from the meth)and his refusal to go to the doctor the past couple of months. I am angery, hurt, asking why????? He had so much going for him, we have always been a close family. We forgave when he did this before and turned his life around. He spent his 50th birthday in jail, it broke my heart to see him like that. I never wanted to see that again. God it hurts, it hurts so bad. I can't hardly type because the tears are flowing so hard. You throw trash away not your kids or grand kids. He walked away from us "because the money was good" My little sister was away for four years in Washington State while her husband was in the Navy. They came "home" two years ago. She is so hurt, she feels lost. We all the love the Lord and each in our own way are grieving and seeking God to help us through this. I am very sensitive and every time I close my eyes. I see dad sitting in that cell, the cell he put himself in, when he could be here. I pray this is scaring my yougest son straight, cause he wasn't getting the seriousness of it. My oldest son is really doing well since re-hab. He's glad to be alive and glad to be free from the addiction. I will continue to pray for all of you and pray you forgive as I am an emotional wreck right now, but I do care for you and what each of you are going throug. God bless you,comfort and keep you safe in His mighty arms from the terrible evil that surrounds us all. You are precious!! Thank you Jesus Cindy W

Good morning everyone,

First let me say CW - when I read your post it made my heart stop because I think that God is trying to intervene by putting your dad in a safe place for now. Some place where he can't sell drugs and he can't do drugs. I know this is very painful for you and your family and I will be praying for you all weekend but hang in there. I almost had a guilt feeling because I prayed for your dad to have a wake up call. But I do feel good will come out of this somehow. Stay strong CW - Love & God Bless
Dear Lord,

Please watch over Cindy W and her family - I pray that her father can see this jail time as a wake up call and realize that he is on a dead end road. I pray that this will open his eyes to what is important in life - his family not drugs. Please keep Cindy and her family strong and help them pull together in this time of tragedy. God Bless them Lord and see them through this.

BA & Cindy,

I miss Kris too and no I haven't heard from her at all. Cindy, I got tears in my eyes the way you ended your post - I pray she is okay and thankyou for the prayers with my job. I feel like if I could just get that part of my life straightened out then maybe the rest will follow. I never really thought about my situation the way you put it I guess I should be grateful that I have this job and that I can work. Thanks Cindy. BA, I am hanging in there girlfriend - I drank 3 1/2 beers last night and then went to bed. That's actually good for me. Once I start, I can't usually stop. Still haven't tried Odouls - I'll be thinking about ya this weekend.

Bonnie,

I did not forget you! My boss keeps walking down the hall so I have to sign off quick sometimes! Good, I'm glad you are going to be there for your hubby. If you love him, that is what matters. I've been married to someone I wasn't in love w/ and I don't ever want to do that again. Stay strong - I will be praying for you.

Dear Lord, I pray that you are watching over Kris and will bring her back to us soon - I pray that BA and I both can stay sober and away from the temptation of alcohol - please keep Bonnie strong and help her to be patient with her husband's addiction - I pray that her husband can overcome his addiction to drugs and have the willpower to say no. And Lord thankyou for bringing us Cindy (angel) she is a strong prayer force here and uplifts my heart. I pray that Brett and I can overcome our problems we are dealing with in our lives right now, my alcoholism, my job, his legal problems - his son - help us to communicate lord, keep us close - help us to be patient with one another. I pray you can help me make the right decision on what job I have and I pray that you can help Brett to go back to work - Watch over our family Lord and keep us safe

Good Afternoon ALl:
Wow after I read all the previous posts I suppose the way I feel isnt as bad as the rest. I drank 5 beers last night because I didn't want to deal with what's going on..My Fiance came home and said the re-fiancing loan may not go thru..Let me back up and explain..In the beginning of August the interest rates were good so my b'f went to his bank to re-fiance the house and we wanted to add on 2 rooms..SOOOOOOOO..the bank said everything on paper looked good so we hired a construction company to start..Now the problem is, the loan isnt finished and the guy wanted his money as he went along..To sum it up, My b'f Todd borrowed 18,000 from his parents till the loan closed.The guy is now finally done with our house but since Todd thought the loan would go thru he has charged 3000$ on his credit card for house stuff like new carpet,hardwood floors, etc.etc to finish the 2 new rooms..Now he saw the loan people yesterday and they told him his debit-ratio (what he owes to what he makes) is off and they may not be able to get this loan autherized(PROBLEM IS)~~~~~ He was sooooooo depressed last night and hardly talked telling me how in the hell are we to pay back his parents 18,000 if the loan doesnt go thru..We ahve tried 3 banks..So I told him to just pray and if needed put me on the loan also to raise our income( I didnt want to do that not being married) I lost 1 house already after my last divorce..SOOOOOO I drank beer with him last night. Neither of us slept all night, Please pray for us the bank loan goes thru so were not 18,000in DEBT to his parents.Other than that Im great. I love and miss all of you and my heart goes out to all of your earlier posts:
Dear Jesus, I pray for all the above that you give them strength and guidance, I pray we can all overcome our addictions in life, I pray that we may all find healthier ways to relax instead of alchol or drugs, I pray for Cindys Dad to finally get his act together and wake up from the drug, I pray you help her to remain strong, I pray for Bonnie that things with Hubby work out, I pray for Quigley to have a Sober weekend and lead her in the right Job which will make her content, I pray for Kris, Dear GOd please bring her back to us, give us a sign she is ok, I pray for Renee that things are going well, I pray for all that things work out for the glory of God, I pray the angels protect us daily in our walk in life and that all of you may find true happiness, inner peace and love.In Jesus name I pray,
God Bless,
Bettyann:-)

Good Evening to everyone!!
I have read the posts, and I have a lot to say, so maybe you should get "comfee"! :) My heart goes out to you all. I know the pain you are going through. :( I am deeply sorry for you and what you are dealing with, and what is yet to come. I have VERY STRONG BELIEFS, AND ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT TO ME IS THIS: GOD SAID IT; I BELIEVE IT - AND THAT IS THAT!!!Period! NO IFS, BUTS OR ANYTHING ELSE. God does not TRY- HE DOES! CW I am sorry your Dad is in jail. It DOES NOT MEAN HE WILL NOT GET HIGH IN THERE!! JAIL IS NOT THE ANSWER. JAILS ARE FULL OF DRUGS.I AM SPEAKING FROM EXPERIENCE (not me in jail!),but others I know who have been there. Most can't wait to get out and get high! And they CAN AND DO GET HIGH EVEN IN COUNTY JAILS!! It takes a conviction INSIDE the person who is addicted. We can not put that there. It would be so easy if we could. I know I would just JUMP and run as fast as I could, if I could fix whats wrong with those that I love, because I love them unconditionally.BUT I CAN NOT DO THAT. You have to REALLY get that in your heart, to help start YOUR healing process. NONE OF US ARE ANY GOOD TO ANY BODY ELSE IF WE DONT GET OURSELVES RIGHT FIRST!! CAN YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT I AM TRYING TO SAY?? We have to be in line with what GOD wants. We have to do what HE wants us to do BEFORE He does what we ask.And He wants us all to be happy. He did not create us to be miserable. He wants us to BE STRONG IN OUR LOVE FOR HIM, AND OUR FAITH IN HIM!! I'm not sure if I am saying this so that you understand what I am trying to tell you. Father, help me to speak words to these people, your children so they will know what You would have me to say. Thank You Lord. Man! I FEEL for you guys. This brings back soooo many of the things I have ENDURED and by the GRACE OF GOD, I MADE IT AND GOD HAS SO BLESSED ME IN MY HEART.tHE TEARS, THE AGONY, THE HEARTACH, THE PAIN OF IT ALL. YOU KNOW ABOUT 6/7 YEARS AGO, I WATCHED AS MY (now husband) shot up in his arm. He didn't even know what it was, and neither did the people who helped him shoot it!~ They just KNEW that if ANYBODY would HE WOULD!! I'm telling you, you could look in his eyes right through the back of his head! THERE WAS NOTHING THERE! That's what DRUGS DO!! Addiction IS their LIFE. nothing else matters! Just the next high. How they will get it, and believe me, they will rob, steel, beg sell every thing they have, LOSE EVERYTHING AND EVERYBODY FOR THAT HIGH. THE COMPLUSION TO USE BECOMES GREATER THAN THE COMPLUSION FOR LIFE. They make LIFE null and VOID. EMPTY. HOPELESS. HELPLESS. EDUCUATE YOURSELVES! It is the first step towards YOUR healing, and as I have already said YOU HAVE TO HEAL BEFORE YOU CAN HELP ANYONE ELSE HEAL. GO TO THE LIBRARY, AND READ, READ, READ!!KNOWLEDGE IS A POWERFUL THING!! FROM WHAT i KNOW ABOUT NARCONON, it is a real good program. But still, he has to WANT this part of his life gone. Drugs/alcohol are hard to kick. but they CAN BE WITH GODS HELP!Please, please, please, WORK ON YOURSELVES FIRST! YOU CAN STILL BE THERE FOR YOUR LOVED ONES, BUT FROM A DISTANCE (not a physical distance), but an emotional distance. Its real hard to do, but if you don't, they will use that emotional part of you every time to get the results THEY want, and who is in a better position to know what they WANT? YOU OR THEM??? I send you hugs and prayers. You are on a very difficult road. Stand on Gods word EVERY DAY!! Do not sway from it. It is the ONLY way to get through, and to heal. Your Dad did not walk out on you! That person is not your Dad. That person is the drugs!!Seperate the two.

BA and Quigley GIVE IT UP TO GOD!!! You do not need the self inflected guilt from drinking! And I bet that loan problem was still there huh? Bet the problems of work, and Brett, and court were still there too huh? Until you completely give it to GOD and walk away from it you're going to drink! GOD IS THE ANSWER. HE IS YOUR ANSWER!! He is paitently waiting for you both to say, ok Lord, I can't do it! I can not lick this thing by myself! You know how stubborn I am! i keep trying it MY way, and it just doesn't work, so here I am. Take me, and make me into that person You created me to be. I'm tired of this yo-yo Lord. I want OFF this roller-coaster ride. I DO NOT want to be on this ride anymore. I love you guys! I really do.:) I am here for you. I will pray for you everyday. I will listen. I will do whatever I can to help. I am truly sorry for what you two are going through. You KEEP THE FAITH, AND DO WHAT GOD TELLS YOU TO DO!!Focus on the SOLUTION not the problem. See if you get a different perspective.God is there with you always. Don't give up on Him He will not give up on you!
Bonnie, and CW - one more thing I want to say to you two is this: Let the tears roll, and THANK GOD THAT YOUR HUSBAND, AND YOUR DAD ARE STILL ALIVE!! Do it right now!! Thank Him over & over & over!! It COULD be so much worse!! You COULD be making funeral arrangments!!
"Nature" ~~ Welcome!! :) Don't know how you got here, but you did! I am sure there is something for you here. Please come back.

Father God,
I can sing of Your Love forever!Sing praise! His love endures FOREVER! Thank You God for loving us.Father, You see the broken hearts here. You see their pain. Their tears. They know not what to do. I pray Father that You comfort them in their time of need. I pray Father that they seek a closer walk with You.I pray Your will be done Lord not mine. You are the giver and the taker of life Lord, and I thank You for all addicts that they are still here, which means they still have a chance to come to You Lord, and to make right choices in their lives. They still have the chance to LIVE, and know the Grace You give us so freely. Thank You Lord. I pray You keep Your loving hands on them both the users, and the ones standing by them. They need You in their lives Lord more now than before. Help them Father to seek You in everything they do. To seek Your will for their lives.
Father, keep Ba, & Quigley safe, and help thyem Lord to do Your will. I know its hard to give up self. We all struggle with it every day. Help us all to know and feel the joy of the Lord in the mist of all our trials.To You Lord, be the golry and oraise. Without You Lord, we are nothing.
Father Your Word tells us in Ephesians 6:10 -17 -Finally, my brethern, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might
11:Put on the whole armor of GOD, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil
12: For we wrestle not against flesh and blood,but against principalities, against powers, against rulers of the darknessof this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13: Wherefor take unto you the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all to stand
14:Stand therefor having your loins grid about with TRUTH, and having on the breastplate of righteousness
15: And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace
16: Above all, taking the sheild of faith, wherewith you shall be able to quinch all the firey darts of the wicked
17: And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of god:
18: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching there unto with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints.
Father, help us every day to put on the whole armor of GOD.Help those realize that You are our strength Our guiding light. Father, I pray for my own son that You deliver him from the evils of drugs. Lord, let him be the Dad You intended him to be. Thank You for bring people here, that their strength may be made whole in You. Increase their faith
In Jesus Precious name I pray
Amen
Love and prayers always~~
Cindy(Angel)
