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.

Good Morning all,

I really didn't feel like going back to work this morning but oh well - hope everyone's Thanksgiving Day was great. We had a very nice one -ate 3 diff. dinners so we were stuffed. Everything is going pretty good at the home front. The kids are testing my patience - between being jealous over each other and then Tyler told Brett last night that he thought Brett loved me more than him and no matter what Brett said it didn't seem to help. I'm not sure how to handle that. I've been trying to let them spend time alone together all weekend but it doesn't seem to help. Taylor went to see an Oakland Raiders game w/ her dad. She has been a handfl too and told me she wanted to go be in her "dad's world" because she was getting yelled at by Brett and I. If it isn't one thing it's another!

Well, hope all is well w/ the rest of you. How are you Brian and Paige doing Bonnie? Happy 40th Bettyann! Thank you for your prayers Angel - I need all the help I can get. Welcome to the site dickeysgirl - my prayers are w/ you and your husband/boyfriend - God Bless you -
Dear Lord,

I pray for the patience to deal w/ this situation w/ the kids and their jealousy and acting out. Please Lord give Brett and I the strength to keep working things out if this is what is meant to be. I prayy that you can keep helping him keep his temper in check - Please help us al work together as a family unit and love one another. Please help all of us here on this site - help us to overcome our addictions watch over each and every one of us. Amen

Good day to all of you,

I hope everyone had a safe and God blessed Thanksgiving holiday. I really felt a deep sense of thankfulness this year. There is so much that is taken for granted that we sometimes forget to stop and thank our Lord for everyday. This Thanksgiving was somewhat of a struggle to get through until I stopped and thanked God that even though our son wasn't here with us to celebrate it that by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ Drew was still alive and was working on his recovery.
I thanked God that my husband and I have been blessed with the resources to help our son. I thanked God that our family has not only stayed united in our son's recovery but that we have all grown stronger as a family. I thanked God that He provides us with the courage to face each day and to have faith in Him to carry us when the day seems to hard to face. I thanked God for sending us His only son to die on a cross so that we may be forgiven for all of our sins. I thanked God for finding this prayer circle of people who I don't even know but are however brothers and sisters in Christ.

Dear John Roberts
You and your dad will be in my prayers and I will ask the Lord that this day will be the start of a new beginning where you can rest in His love and find relief...
Hello everyone:
I was glad to read you all seemed to find lots to be thankful for as I am. My concern now is really for my daughter Rachael. She is so busy working the 2 jobs but she is not addressing the drug problem. She has not been to any meetings in two weeks and is talking about trying to find time to go out with her friends. John is doing much better in his rehab and he will be going to a halfway house in a few weeks. My fear is now that I have her baby and she is free of John she will not want to take this seriously.
Only the Lord knows where this is going and I have to step back...
Hope everyone is finally feeling better and trusting the Lord in the BIG and the small things. Gotta go for now, my lunch is over and work beckons. I will keep you all and all your struggles in my prayers and Happy Birthday--Bettyann!
With His Love,
Joni

Dear John,


I too had a pain killer addiction to Vicodin, percocet and Tylox. There was a time when I could not imagine being able to function without them. But that was 6 years ago and I am glad to say I am no longer addicted to them. I have fallen short a few times and taken them in the last 6 years but have always jumped back on the wagon right away. You and your father are in my prayers. What made me quit was a life style change. I left my husband. I was very unhappy. I went thru flu like symptoms for about a week or so. I'm sure not everyone quits in the same way but I will pray for an answer for you.

I pray and ask for prayer that I may be freed of my addicition to alcohol. I have tried to stop but can not do it alone. I want so much to be a better person and to make a life that matters. I have been out of work for 3 months, yet I am terrified about what a new job might hold in store, and how I might not do well at it. My husband, who is all I have has about had it with me (understandable). I know I can make my life better and I beleive in the power of prayer. I am sorry that this plee is so selfish - but the end result I seek is to be a better servant to God, and to want to live. Thank you all so much.

Dear Hope,

I hear the desperation in your words and understand what it is like to so desperately want to quit drinking. Your plea is not selfish - that is what we are here for - I will keep you in my daily prayers - God Bless

Hi all,

Joni - I will be praying for Rachael to
be able to juggle her life and to address her drug problem - it sounds like she is very busy so hopefully it will keep her out of trouble - as you said trust in God - I myself need to remember that. Hope everyone else is doing okay. I pray that God grant me the patience, love and understanding to be a good mother and girlfriend - and the ability to forgive - Amen

Hello everyone:
Thanks for the prayers Quigley. Rachael went to an AA meeting last night for the first time in three weeks so keep praying!!!!
Dear Hope
I will pray that you will find God's grace is NEW every morning and that you will be able to face each day knowing His love for you. Turn your fears over to Him and He will hold you up.
Hope everyone is doing ok. We are MORE than conquerers through HIM who Loves us.
With HIS love,
Joni

Hi all and Welcome all the new people,
I too am a alcoholic. I gave it up because fiance kciked me out and was tired of my drunkenness all the time and fighting, It can get better and you CAN quit..I recently started drinking again since I went back to school in September, I went totally down hill since last Friday on my "40th" b-day with everyone buying me shots :-( Now my Fiance said to me last night? You have been hitting the booze again heavily why? I never realized till he said that , it finally hit me? HEY I need to TOTALLY quit again and go back to the O'duls. I did it I can di it again, Alcohol just ruins life's, it brings you down, it's a depressant, It is NOT the answer . Dear Jesus:
I come to you today to first to say Im very sorry I went back down the wrong road of drinking again, I pray that you help me get back on track and Totally give it up and only drink O'duls. I pray for the deliverence for everyone in here suffering an addiction, I pray you halp John get off the pills and have a meaningful life, I pray you help all us alcoholic's say NO to the booze and turn to you, give us all the will and strength. God grant me the serentity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to no the difference. Everyone take 1 day at a time, don't look back, don't look forward, live you day 1 Day at a time, do the best you can do for that day. Put God first and all will work out, In Jesus name I pray,
God Bless,
Love Bettyann

Hi Kris!

It's great to hear from you - I'm sorry to hear about your health - I hope you start feeling better soon. I've been thinking about you a lot. I miss seeing your posts.

BA - I have been doing a lot of drinking lately too - I went out last night w/ some friends and I feel awful today and guilty. Actually, this is probably the worst I can remember feeling in a long time. I pray we both can start back on the wagon -

Hope everyone else is doing good - God Bless all.

Father God, thank you for your love, mercy and grace. I lift these prayer requests up to, and maybe my brothers and sisters in Christ will read these requests and stand in the gap for my family. Lord, hear my prayers. Please give me health/wellness to do what I need to do each day. Provide for me the doctors/medical specialists to help me with my multiple sclerosis diagnosis. Please forgive me for my doubts and fears about my health. Help me to just trust in You. Lord, I seek your face, I stand at the alter, I bow at your feet...please, according to Your will and to Your glory and honor, Father, please provide for my family. You know our needs. Please heal my husband. Help him get help for his depression and alcohol abuse. Help me to forgive him for the mess he has put our family in at a time when we are supposed to be moving, at this Holiday time and when I am struggling so much with my health. Please, Father God, according to Your will and to Your Glory and Honor, make the police drop the felony charges they have brought against my husband. Forgive him for being so irresponsible by taking Rx narcotics along with consuming alcohol. You know what happened, Father. Forgive him for wanting to hurt himself. Forgive him for hurting me. I lift these requests up to you in the name of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. Thank you, Daddy. I love you. Amen.

Hello to all,
Welcome to all the newbies!! It is good to have you here. It is my prayer that you find encouragment, friendship, and hope here.
Hey Kris! Good to see ya on here again! :) I miss you very much! I will call you soon. You are in my prayers.
Ps 29:11
The Lord will give strength unto HIS people; the Lord will BLESS HIS people with PEACE.
Ps118:14
The Lord is my strength and song, and is become my salvation.
Phil 4:13
I can do all things THROUGH Christ which strengtheneth me.
So, who can tell me what the big "I" can do????????? WITHOUT CHRIST, AND WITHOUT GIVING HIM RESPECT(AS IN USING CAPITAL LETTERS WHEN REFERRING TO HIM, CHRIST,HIS WORD,ETC..THATS NOT MUCH TO ASK!!)JUST EXACTLY WHAT DO YOU THINK "YOU" WILL ACCOMPLISH????? NOTHING! NADA! ZERO! ALL GOOD THINGS COME FROM OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR!! YES??? LET THOSE WHO HAVE EARS TO HEAR, HEAR.
My prayers are with you all always.
Angel

Good Morning to all,

I am so sorry for not posting in such a long time. I have been pretty busy here at the office. Things have picked up some (we landed a few new accounts), so I am hoping that I will get all of my hours back soon. I am glad to hear that everyone had a good Thanksgiving. Quigley I am glad to hear that things are getting better for you. Kids will be kids and they will always try your patience Ė at least I know Paige does. She is so spoiled (and I know that is my fault) and used to having me all to herself while Brian is gone during the week, that she has a hard time of sharing me on the weekends with him. Try your best to stay away from the drinking. Donít give up!! God is there with you, all you have to do is turn to him. WOW, why canít I follow my own advice? BA happy (late) birthday!! I pray that you too can stay away from the drinking. I am proud that you have made it this far. Keep up the good work. How is school going? And work? Joni I hope things are going well with you and that you have gotten into a workable routine with having the baby with you. I have been praying for Rachel and that she is able to find the time to work on getting to meetings. Brian also feels that he doesnít have the time to go. I am praying for both of them to find the time they need. Welcome to all the new people. I have said a prayer for each of you while reading your post. May God be with you in your daily walk and give you the peace and strength you ask for. Kris I am so sorry to hear about your health. I donít know you personally, but I can tell by your post that you are a very strong person and I know God will hear your prayers and give you the peace you need. I will close this now with a short but full of love prayer.

Dear Lord, I come to you today with thanksgiving for another beautiful day. The sun is shining and the birds are singing. I pray that you are with the people that are stuck in bad weather that is happening in the other parts of the world. The storms should remind everyone that You are in charge, not us! I pray now for all of my friends on this site. Please be with all of them. Hear their prayers Lord and heal them. Open their eyes to your Love and give them the strength and peace that they all ask for. Lord, I ask now that you wrap a hedge of protection around Brian. He is working very long hours and is away from home for days at a time. Please keep the demons away from him. I also pray for Paige. Please help her to understand why her daddy is away so much. Please give me the patience I need to make it through everything that is going on. Help me relax and enjoy this holiday season with my family. Help me remember that YOU ARE THE REASON FOR THE SEASON. I bring this all to you. If it is your will Lord, AMEN

Hello all,

Good to hear from you Bonnie. Things get pretty hectic this time of year - so it's good to hear from you whenever we can. Kris, I hope you are feeling better - and thanks for not commenting on the OTHER subject right now - I just want to get thru the Holidays and be happy - we will seen what 2004 brings - We put up the tree this weekend - Taylor had an ice skating Christmas program this weekend - it was cute - she is getting better at skating - but can't quite keep up w/ the other kids - but she tried - Brett and I are trying to keep our relationship together but he isn't on his medication again because they dropped his insurance and so his moods are up and down - I just pray that he can get back on the insurance because the meds are around $150.00 a bottle - or that he will just break down and pay for them - BA, hope things are going better for you - and Shininggold - bless you for letting Kris use your computer - it is so good to hear from her again and it's nice to have you join us -

Dear Lord,

I come to you today and ask that you watch over each and every one of us here on this site - I pray that you hear our prayers and requests and help us through our daily problems. Lord, you know my problems and I pray that you can help me in my decisions and show me the path to take Amen
