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.

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.

Father God; Please do a great and excitilng work in the life of my son Michael. Remove from him the desire of drugs and alcohol and return him to you. Please God watch over him as he has been moved to yet another home. Give him your love and strength to get through this. We rebuke Satan in your name, and tell him to come out of Michael's body and be on his way. We love you Father and we love our son. Yow can and will do great things for him. Please be with all who are administering to him and give them the answers to his treatment that you would have them do. Give Michael your peace and let him know we love him and are there for him and look forward to the time we will be a family again. Thank you Heavenly Father for your love for all of us and expecially for Michael and thank you for placing him in our home the first time. We trust you for Michael. mimito

Thank you sweet Lord Jesus and thank you Holy God Father. I praise your name that Tommy's family has known you and knows to turn to others who love and trust you. Please keep showing them your healing power and let Tommy's death bring great spiritual growth to all who've been touched by it.
Also Lord, please never give up on me. I too struggle w/ horrible monster we call addiction. My life has been ridden with it. I torment over it. I despise myself because of it. I want so bad to be able to say that I am drug free and living that way everyday.
Thank you for your unconditional love Father. Thank you for not giving up on me or Tommy. Amen.

To the parents and family of Tommy, I feel your pain and heartache. I also lost my only son at the age of 30yrs old to the disease of addiction an over
dose of heroin. It has been three years since that terrible phone call came and I still hurt, but my faith and knowing that he is with the Lord in heaven at peace and healed helps me to get through the days. I know that one day we will meet again. There are many times I cry because I miss him, his blue eyes and smile that lit up a room when he walked in, his hugs, he was kind to everyone and loved nature. He left me many gifts, he made me see the beauty in nature that I always took for granted, my priorites are different than what they were. I have also realized how short life can be. God bless each of you and may our Savior give you peace. I believe Tommy is with the Lord also, perhaps your son and mine have met. I will continue to pray for all those who suffer from this disease of addiction and pray that drugs will no longer be a problem in our society. The second Sunday in December is National Childs Day light a candle at 7:00 PM it represents all the children that have died. Remember the good times and keep Tommys spirit alive.

Oh God please help Tommys family with there grief. I know you will take care of Tommy, his family needs you now.
Please pray for my son Chris for he is out there again using, Pray that he gets the help he needs before something bad happens to him. I place him in Gods hands for only he can help him. I know God hears all our prayers so please pray for my son, it is not easy being a mother of a junkie, I've seen to many young lives wasted because of drugs,to many die and to many people crying. And to many children with out there parents.

Blessings to all who suffer the burden of addiction, and blessings to their families for their suffering and heartache.

May all people know peace.

I TOO HAVE SUFFERED FROM AN ABUSE ADDICTION THAT AT TIMES WAS SO OVERWHELMING THAT AS HARD AS I PRAYED IT DID NOT SEEM THAT I WAS NOT GETTING ANY BETTER. I DO NOT BELIEVE THE AVERAGE PERSON THAT HAS NEVER EXPERIENCED THIS TYPE OF HORROR CAN UNDERSTAND. I FEEL FOR TOMMY AND HIS FAMILY VERY DEEPLY. I HAVE BEEN ALMOST TO DEATH WITH A DIFFERENT TYPE OF SUBSTANCE ADDICTION AND IT WOULD SCARE ME AND I WOULD PRAY FOR FORGIVENESS AND THE STRENGTH TO STOP. TOMMY'S DEATH IS NOT IN VAIN AS IT BREAKS MY HEART TO KNOW THAT SUCH A SPECIAL AND WONDERFUL PERSON IS NO LONGER ON THIS EARTH BUT I AM SURE THAT HIS SPIRIT IS WATCHING OVER OTHERS WITH THE SAME TYPE OF PROBLEM THAT HE HAD. I AM GLAD TO KNOW THAT THERE IS SUCH A SPECIAL ANGEL WATCHING OVER ME. AGAIN, MY PRAYERS AND THOUGHT GO TO HIS LOVED ONES AND FRIENDS.

I am a newcomer to this, but certainly not new to believing in prayer. I know that with God all things are possible. It seems sometimes that we are traveling the long road alone, but with the wonderful peace that comes with prayer, we can truly know that we are not. I am sending my prayers out to the family of Tommy and to all others who are victims of chemical additions even though some have not lost a loved one in actual death - we are still broken hearted, and the addict him or herself is the only one who can truly overcome this problem. We can only offer our assistance to them, and Dear God, Pray for a spiritual renewal within them and ourselves, for we know not what he or she may be going through right now. My family's life was disrupted a couple of weeks ago when a son was arrested and remains in jail at this very moment because his family loves him so very much and feel at this time that this is not feasible. He needs big help to overcome this problem. He has been married and has five beautiful children who have had to face many things because of their father AND MOTHER's addictions, feeling that their "good times" were oh so much more important that taking care of these children and now ALL of them have been taken away from them forever unless a miracle happens. Yes, I do have faith, and I know that it can happen, but so many chances have been theirs over the past four years, that I am truly afraid that they may not have another chance for them. I just pray that these adults along with any others in this world let God grant them the SERENITY to accept the things they cannot change, the COURAGE to change the things they can, and the WISDOM to know the difference. May God Bless You ALL is my sincere prayer to all who reads this. Even death does not take away the love we have for our family or friends. The sting of death only gets weaker with time. I sincerely hope that all who have lost their loved one can continue to throw out a helping hand to all others who need one and may it save someone else's life. May God Bless!

A PRAYER FOR THOSE WHO HAVE LOST A LOVED ONE

Dear God,
I miss my loved ones. I carry their memory with me wherever I go.
I pray that you will remind me that they remain a part of me in everything that I do, and everything that I am.
Continue to show me that they are still a part of my life and that nothing can seperate us.
I ask that you keep the bonds between us strong in spirit until the day that we are reunited in your kingdom.
Amen.

Father your word says that "not by power, not by might but by Your Spirit" we are empowered to overcome. In Your strength our weakness is made perfect. You do not give us spirit to fear but power, love and sound mind." I stand in agreement for all here who suffer from addictions, bondages and lonliness which may be leading to these things. I ask now in Jesus mighty name to loose Your people miraculously from all bondages in Jesus name. That what we confess with our mouths and believe in our hearts will be granted. Please remind us to confess the Word over our circumstances and not the problem. To remain steadfast will bring results if we agree with Your Word. I ask for faith to overcome my weight problem which at times is an addiction as well. In Jesus name.

Dear Lord,
Please give me strength in the next coming weeks. It seems Tommy's death has really hit me in the past month. It's almost like I just found out. I have been having dreams about him all of the time and although they are good, it still upsets me. I keep dreaming that I am with Tommy and I keep asking him if he knows he's dead and he always happily replies "Yes". He even comforts me in the dreams and it's over him. Tommy looks so happy and healthy in my dreams and this leads me to believe that he is in your hands. If it possible I feel like I can actually smell his scent. I feel better knowing that he is coming to me and in every dream he tells me how much better off he is. I think this is my subconscience trying to help me accept Tommy's death. I pray for Phylis, Tom Sr, and Kimmie. I hope they are okay and I love them and my prayers are with them and the rest of Tommy's family and friends.

I pray for these families who are suffering-Please uphold them & keep them strong. In Jesus name we pray.

Love is a strong thing. It was the love of our god that brought jesus. It was love that bled from christs head, wrists, and feet so that we can be here. We love our family and friends. We wish we can control them but we can't. Thats why we sometimes blame ourselves for thier addiction. The addiction lies to them to control them. They make them fell dependent and feel like they have to have it to live. In all reality the addiction doesn't have the control. The person does. If they only Knew how easy it is to look up to the lord and ask "All loving, forgiving god I am a sinner Please Help Me?"
My sister got pregnant at 17. By the time she was 18, the father and her had split. She started changing. My sistet wasn't my sister any more. She lost wieght, she was gone half the time leaving the baby with me. Lies were an everyday thing and her stealing my bracelet with doves and praying hands hurt more than anything.She was tring to pawn it for drug money. I felt that if I could have seen it coming, the life she was living. We coulnd't get any proof that she was using but we knew. The bad thing was that I hang out with the same group. I don't use. I chose to say NO. I made threats to our friends. IF they dare give my sister any money for drugs or give her drugs that I would unleash the wrath of god on them. The ones I gave the threat to aren't happy now. My sister is married, has another baby, and is healthy. With the help and strength god and our family gave her she is no longer addicted to drugs. I fight back tears now as I write about it. Those were painful times. I am very thankful for my sister. I love her dearly. Little does she know that I thank god for her being a teen mother. I feel that if she had been older when she had Aleia, the first child, I probably wouldn't care for her as much as I do. I had the opportunity to bond with this adorable little baby.I had to step in to be mommy. I was only 16 when she was born. I remember crying when my sister first told me she was pregnant. I was the first person to know that she was pregnant the second time. My little nieces bring so much joy to my life. The older of the two calls me aunt lawie now instead of mommy lawie. If I keep on with the little one her first words will be aunt lawie.HA! God is with our family. I remember everytime I look at my nieces. Only god can give us these things we charish so much. Only god can give us the hope we had back during those dark times. Only god gives us these blessings that wake me up at 3am, one wanting a bottle and one wanting a sippie cup and scoobydoo cartoons.I thank you lord, thank you.

Dear Lord, most high, most loving father and friend...I beg you to give comfort to the family of Tommy W. Glenn Jr. and for all other famalies who may also be suffering because of drugs, alcohol, or any other addiction that takes over their lives. In your name, oh Lord, and with your blood, I ask you to ease the pain of all who suffer, from this deadly disease. For it is he who needs your love most. Please guide all who long for you and who truly hate who they are because they were consumed by something which was out of their control. Please help the families of these addictics to continue to love the one who suffers and never give up on them. There is nothing good that comes from tough love except death to the addict who already feels bad for who he is. Help all to understand that most addicts/alcohols do not choose this way of life because it's fun. Most likely they were this way because they were hurt by somone in some way or felt unloved and wanted the pain to go away. I ask you, Heavenly Father, to help the families of all addicts who are still here alive to not give up on the one(s) they love, unless they are prepared for the death of that person... and maybe then they'll regret when it's too late! In Jesus name AMEN.

Dear Heavenly Father, you have a special plan for us all. I pray for Tommy and his family that the loss of Tommy will bring them closer to you. Tommy is resting in the peace of the Lord. I ask for prayers for my daughter who has just given up her addiction that she will have a spiritual renewal and that she will find God and the power of the Holy Spirit in her life. That she will appreciate this chance she has been given and use it for the good of God's children. Please pray that she receives the graces and blessings of Our Lord, the angels and all the saints that she will see the difference in her life and she will never again go back to using no matter what the reason may be. I ask this through Christ Our Lord Amen.
