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 could beat anyone. Please help one another. Please Lord, give me the strength to continue to fight for this cause. God bless you.


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.

My Heavenly Father,
I come to You in Jesus precious Name, the Name above all names,
Lord, I ask for ALL addicts, alcoholics, suffering from their abusive habits, that someone, somewhere,through YOUR DIVINE GUIDENCE, that they be brought to the realization that the ONLY way to a new life in Christ Jesus, is to come to YOu humbly, asking for forgivness, and be willing to give up their old ways, and become a new creature in Christ Jesus, by asking HIM into their hearst as their Lord and Saviour. Give them enough faith to take the stand FOR YOU, and enough COURAGE to not give into temptations, or the pressures from others. Help them oh GOD, to RESIST IN JESUS NAME the prince of DARKNESS.Father, I ask for guidence for all the families and friends that live through this with them, and see their suffering, Lord, that YOU give them the strength they need to NEVER give up - to always be there, for them.
God, I ask that they may feel so not alone - so not such an outcast. They are lost souls Lord, just looking in the wrong direction for what they truly NEED, as we all NEED YOU oh Lord. Bless and keep all in these situations safe, and under Your mighty care untill their day of repentance.
In Jesus Holy Name I ask You
Amen, & amen

HAIL and blessed be the hour and moment in which the son of God was born of the most pure Virgin Mary, at midnight, in Bethlehem, in piercing cold. In that hour vouchsafe, O my God! to hear my prayer and grant my desires, through the merits of Our Savior Jesus Christ, and of His blessed Mother. Amen

It is priously believed that whoever recites the above prayer fifteen times a day from the feast of St. Andrew, 11/30 until Christmas will obtain what is asked. Michael Augustine, Archbishop of NY, February 6, 1897.
I recite this prayer every year - it does work. The Lord hears us! Try it!

My heavenly Father, please hear my prayer.
Lord, help my son, Jason Ryan to humble himself in all things. Lord, send your light through his body, his mind, his very soul. Teach my son how to cry. To let go, cry it out, to get down on his knees & confess his sins to you. Let Pops help him, give this man the right words to mend Jason's heart. Humble this young man, my son to salvation. Please Lord, hear my prayer. Give Jason strength, to overcome all demons in his life. To overcome all obstacles, to realize his life through your word. Help him to listen to Pops. To know what to do when the time comes for the truth. To be strong & forgiving of all mankind. Let him heal through his tears. I love you Lord Jesus, you have answered every prayer from day one, concerning this young man. I love the phrase, "Your never late," Your answers to my prayers are always perfect. I place Jason Ryan in your hands for all his life.
May the Blessing of Almighty God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit descend upon Jason Ryan & his family, and remain for all time. In Jesus' name, Amen.
Lord remain w/me through all things, speak for me. Help me to be a good mother, daughter, grandmother, mother-in-law, wife. Help me to not be noisy, but loving/kind to my family. To teach rather than preach. I hope that the children always feel welcome & loved when they walk through our doors. May we always be close & devoted to one another. To help one another without insulting open wounds of heart-ache. Be with us in all our trails. I ask this in your name, Jesus' Amen.

Hi, This is the first online prayer circle I have ever posted on. I have been going to a celebrate recovery pray meeting at my church for 12 weeks mainly for co-dependency. I finally got my husband to go last week because his addiction to pain pills has destroyed our finances and our marriage is barely hanging on. He keeps saying he is going to stop then he has terrible withdrawls which means he can't work - which means no money. I have tolerated this for a year and have been developing a relationship with God. I pray continuously for God to take his addictions away. I know it is a struggle and he really is a good person but I have put my walls up and I am already setting up things in my own name planning for a separation. Then part of me says that I should help him -I am now seeing a christian counselor but I so confused. How are other people dealing with loved ones who are hooked on pain pills.

My heart goes out to all of you who have posted and I will keep you in my prayers. Please pray that God leads Michael in the right direction and gives me strength and direction also.

PS I would appreciate any suggestions, GO

11/8/2004 23:57

I pray for you,
I also was addicted to pain meds..Its hard and WE DO want and mean to quit, its the scary withdrawls that bing us back, but as long as He is willing to admit he has a problem that is the first step..It takes depending what hes been on and how much 3-5days with total withdrawls, once hes over that its all down hill from there..Im nurse and was also addicted to pain meds caz they made me feel great when I had back surgery, then in this field I got them just because...the downfall is you are always tired, lack sex, and feel depressed afer awhile,,,I will pray for him and its up to GOD what will happen, all you can do is PRAY for him, and all will happen thru GOD, I hope u find peace, its no different than being an alcoholic, drugs, etc...its all about the hi, and not feeling the low when you come down,,In jesus name I pray,

11/13/2004 00:36

Quigley and Kris,
I pray you all are doing fine. I think about you lots even tought Im not on here quite as much. The depression is getting bad , and the migraines even worse, I saw a Doct today and he told me I needed and MRI of my head and that my Diabetics is out of control with my diet and stress.It's ALWAYS SOMETHING...I have Faith that it will all work out caz Im tired of feeling like crap..No pills just drinking to relax......I pray for you all, and I also hope that God is there for all your sorrows and that you may find peace, caz untill we feel at peace we keep running and get away from GOd,
In Jesus name,

Hello all,

BA, I pray that your headaches go away and the depression too. How are you and Todd?

Kris, I've gotten your messages. I have just been swamped and not at home very much at all. I have not had very much time to myself lately. My life has taken on a big change for the good. My job is going great and I'm so busy I can hardly keep up and I'm working at home half the time. It's great pay and I love the work - what more could I ask for? I met a new guy. His name is Kevin and he has 3 kids. I'm buying a house with the help of a good friend who won the lottery and if life gets any better I'm going to start to get scared!! I'm so thankful. This time last year was not at all like this. I hope that you are all happy and at peace.

Well, I just had a sec. Love you all

11/21/2004 13:14

Glad things are looking up for you, that is wonderful..Keep up the good work. Things are ok so so with Todd and I..Love my job, weekends off, getting in the mood for x-mas but not spending the money this year like last.I take one day at a time, hope for the best and prepare for the worst...Headaches are better, get MRI Nov 27th...I just wish I felt 100% for Todd and this relationship but I no I cant afford to move out and start 0ver, at least we make great friends if not lovers ..Its been 4 yrs and I dont no what our future holds if Im suppose to stay with him or not, all I do is ask God for direction..Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and find many things too be thankful for :-)

God bless you all and good health to you..
Peace, Bettyann

I just want to say Thank You LORD for all YOU'VE given me I LOVE YOU SO MUCH. I know that I've had an alcohol addiction that I'm doing much better with and with YOUR guidance I will make it through this. It's so easy to get caught up in daily stress, family and relationship problems and turn to the wrong things like drugs and alcohol, but I know that the LORD is watching over all of us and he wants us to be happy and live good CHRISTIAN lives, and get back up when we fall and keep trying. We all have to keep looking to the LORD JESUS CHRIST AND SAVIOR to realize what's most important, HIM THE FATHER. We wants all that is good for us, but we have to want it too, I mean really want it, in other words, take responsibility for our actions and quit blaming everything for what we do. GOD gave us the ability to make a decision, now it's time to show him that he's taught us well and make good decisions. I PRAY IN JESUS NAME TO GRANT THE STRENGTH TO DO WHAT YOU'VE GIVEN US THE ABILITY TO DO AND THAT IS TO LIVE A BETTER LIFE FOR OURSELVES THROUGH YOU AND IN RETURN HELPING OTHERS LIVES TO BE BETTER AND HAPPIER. Thank YOU LORD for always being there even when we think YOU'VE left. WE LOVE YOU FATHER. AMEN

11/21/2004 23:36

Praise you!!!!!!!! I hope you continue, I also have a problem with drinking to ease my life(so it seems) then gets me deeper in trouble...I just love that if we ask AND R SERIOUS THE LORD WILL HELP......... I pray for all, this is a terrible disease as any drug, to relax, I pray we can relax and unwind from daily termoil without alcohol,
In Jesus name,

thanks for that last poem:
sooooooooooo true, I hope all had a good turkey day and found things to be grateful...I found out my aunt has 48 hrs to live, ovarian cancer, I cant call, shes not aware...I cried at dinner at my parents and was thankful that Im just alive and have a job, roof over my head and a b'f of 4 yrs and a family that loves me....After that I feel so ashamed that I worrie about money, zits, age, etc...Im Diabetic but Im still alive and in control,..Its sad that good peole die and the ones that kill, rape, etc seem to live forever> I will never understand God that way, but I guess when our time is up good or bad we go??????? I pray you all have a great holiday with Christmas coming and remember the true meaning ....
God bless you all,
Love Bettyann

Lift them up and if they don't know you Lord, bring them into your presence and let them know they are never alone with You. Amen

Heavenly Farther,
I come to you with prayers for Tommy's parents as the lost of a loved one is a slow healing wound. I also come to you for prayers of assistance for myself with 30 days of sobrietyand all of your children who struggle to get clean and sober and to stay that way-one day at a time. For those who do not know You can do anything if we only trust and belive in You. I know that when there is only one set of footprints in the sand that you are doing for me what I can not do for myself. Thank you Farther for all your blessing. Keep me and those who suffer from this painful disease of addiction in the Palm of your loving hands.
