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.

Dear Lord,
Please help my son Jason Robert, he has fallen into addiction again. He is back to his old habits again and I am at a total loss. My heart is broken but I will not give up on him and I know that you will forgive and still be there for him. Please Lord help him with this constant struggle to give up the drugs and see that happiness can be found in you. Please Lord open his heart to accept your love and feel your peace. Please take the evil of addiction away. I ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen

I indirectly lost my little girl due to drugs. She was born to a drug addict who abandoned her. We adopted her and she had a congenital heart defect(most likely from her mother's addiction) My Katie had open heart surgery at 21 months and sadly died three days later.
My prayers with Tommy's family and all who are struggling with addiction. My son has a marijuana habit he is trying desperately to overcome and it breaks my heart. I try to "let go and let God" and when I truly surrender my fears it is then that I feel peace. God watches over us all.......In memory of Katherine Mary DiTomasso

My name is Dana and I am a recovering addict. I know how terribly hard it is to be in the grips of the disease known as addiction. I also know how hard it is for the family and friends to watch their loved one destroying their lives with drugs. I am the oldest of 6 children and the other 5 ALL have had or still have problems with this insidious disease.

Support groups do help all of us, but the pain in our hearts engulfs us and it is impossible to make the addict stop using unless they want to.

I pray for you, Tommy, that you are at peace from the demons that took you away. You are loved and will always be loved. You are with God now and your spirit will be at peace. My heart goes out to all family and friends who might think that they could have done something more to help Tommy, but please don't ever blame yourself. Please remember this is a sickness, an illness and I say this from my heart as I had to witness my brother and sister "out of control" this past weekend. I cringe sometimes when the telephone rings. I constantly pray to the Lord and I find that I don't want to argue for fear of alienating myself, but I pray to take away my anger. But we are human and get frustrated. Remember you are not alone. We have our God and our family and friends who love and support us. And if there is any solace in what I have to say, we are/were powerless over this disease. May you find comfort as each minute, hour, day goes by. Tonight I will say a prayer for Tommy and for you, too. I live in fear all the time, but it helps me to pray to God, knowing that He is in charge. He is the one who will comfort you, hold you in his arms and help you in time to remember all the good that you shared with your son. And remember, Tommy wasn't a bad person; he was a sick person. God bless you all. Tommy, there is no more suffering for you. Amen

Hello all, I have spent the afternoon reading these prayers. The only addiction I have is smoking I quit in January but like a fool I started back up, I need lots of prayers to quit smoking. My Daughter is a recovering addict and alocholic. She lost her two boys,and hwer Daughter, she has her Daughter back home now. My Husband and I had custody of the boys until their father deceided he wanted them after he hadn`t even tried to see them for 7 years, they were 10 and 11 years old, one will be 18 in December and Praise the Lord he is coming home to us. He is a Christian . We only get to see them once a year cause it costs us over $1000.00 to go see them. Please pray for all of us. I just had a toe amputed in January.

Lord in Heaven, hear my prayer:
Sweet merciful savior, bless this family with your Holy Spirit. Help us to overcome all of our problems, by giving them to you. Carry us, Lord. Help us to become worry free; to be strong with your spirit. To help each other. Lord, my son, Jason Ryan needs you more than ever. Descend upon him; make things happen quickly. Set him free. You have given him another chance in this life. I am most thankful, Lord. I ask that he now be able to prove himself. It will be hard, but please give him that chance. You know him; you know Jason's heart; his soul. Show him how to be a leader - to teach others to be strong and say NO. Lord, I don't know if I can wait all these years. Please show us the way to freedom. My mother needs Jason.Let him live w/her and made the rest of her days happy w/comfort. I ask this in Jesus' name, Amen.

"I believe in the sun even when it isn't shining
I believe in love even when there's noone there
And I believe in God even when He is silent."

Often, Lord it seems you are silent. Hear and answer the prayers of all here and bestow on them your blessings and peace.

Especially bless the family of Tommy who began this prayer circle.

My own son (and only child) is waiting to get into a residential rehabilitation program. He has been a heroin addict for 14 years. As a result, like many others here I am sure, our family is emotionally, physically, and financially drained.

Bring healing to us and to all others in our situation.

Hello all,

Have not been on the site for a while. I guess this is a hint not to leave because my life has started to fall apart. My boss cut me down to part-time because of his financial difficulties and wants me to look for a new job so even the part-time is temp. I loved almost everything about my job plus it was great pay. I'm already having financial problems because I went off the deep end and gambled too much. I just pray that I can recover before I lose my car or house etc. Pray for me please - BA - hope all is well with you and Kris, hope you are doing well also. Bonnie, I've rec'd your emails but haven't read them. I will do that tonight - Hope things are good for you.

Love

Dear Merciful Heavenly Father:

I thank you Lord for blessing me with a Sister who has been a friend as well as a sister for most of our lives. As the years have gone by she has become more and more addicted to presciption drugs (Pain Medication) and it is ruining her life,making her miserable and hurting her family relationsips. Give me the knowledge, sensitivity and strength to do and say the things that are helpful. Also the strength to overcome the anger I feel, which I understand is actually fear and hurt.

Give her strength, Lord to overcome the addiction; Give her peace, Lord through the Holy Spirit, the comfortor and give her the prescence of mind to get the help she needs.

I am so grateful, Father that you have allowed this technology to be so available, when it is used in this way. As I pray to you now there are 83 pages of prayers just for Addicts and their families. I pray that you will watch over all, particularly those who have lost a loved one to addiction. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, Our Savior, Amen.

Heavenly Father hears my prayers and the prayers of those who suffer from addiction. I have been with a lovely man for two years who is fighting the demons of addiction. His family no longer has anything to do with him and I am the only person who has not turned their back or stopped believing that he can get well. I pray that God can show him the path to righteousness and recovery. I know that the man I fell in love with is not the man that I am seeing today but because of the precious gift of love God has given I believe that it is my earthly mission to continue to help him. Please pray that he is safe and that he will get the help that he needs. I pray all the time and I know that I need help in doing this. Please pray for my fiance, that he gets well from this horrible disease. Please pray that these demons leave him. Thank you all so much.

Heavenly father, please watch over Terry and keep him safe. Lord please lift him and all others suffering from addiction into your arms and let them know that you never fail them and that they are loved. Heavenly Father give them the strength to break the chains that weigh them down into the depts of the hell that they are experiencing right now and bring them into the light which is you. Please Lord I pray this prayer today and everyday.

In your name

AMEN

my name is Adelaide and I just joined beliefnet. First of all let me pray for all of our brothers and sisters in Christ who need his healing. The power of prayer is awesome. I know what God and prayer will do, I have seen it for myself. Please pray for my boyfriend Guy. He is a recovering addict and cannot seem to let go of it. I have done all that I know how to do and prayer is the only remedy that I know will truly work when a person believes. Please pray that God will restore him and bring him and so many others out of this addiction.

Please pray for my boyfriend Guy who is suffering from drug addiction and alcoholism. God knows the temptation that he and so many others face. Please pray and ask God to deliver he and them completely from this disease.

Lord in Heaven, please hear my prayer;
Lord, place your hand upon all who suffer from addiction of some sort. The pain it causes, not only for the weak victims - but for the families. Lord, help us to help our loved ones. We are powerless over this problem and powerless over anyone's life but our own. Lord, I am asking for you to breath into their very souls, the gift of life; your light of hope. Giving these lost souls of temptation, courage to fight against their love of this addiction. All who are on this site, need your hand upon them. Help us, Lord Jesus to remain strong, patient, loving for those we're struggling with to help; this horrible disease of addiction, of drugs or alcoholism.
Lord Jesus in Heaven, please place your hand upon my son, Jason Ryan. Guide him through his pain; heal my son, mentally, physically, emotionally. Forgive all sins in this family. Jason is hurting; he needs the love and support of this family and close friends; help Jason's brother to commit to helping Jason through this horrible time in our lives. My son is sitting in prison, alive, for which I am thankful. Lord, it's has been a hard 15 months; very hard, but Jason is alive and his system is clean. He's getting the help he needs, in the school of hard knocks. This is not what I would have chosen for him, but I'm asking no questions. My Lord in heaven, you know my son, better than I. You have taken the bull by the horns and set him down; down hard. Thank you. I know Jason is the type of person, who has to see reality before he can accept the truth. He now sees the reality of his weakness. Lord, you slapped this young man in the face and answered all my prayers. I am so grateful. I ask that you still guide my words and actions so that I will say and do all I can to hasten recovery. Help me to also detach so that my son will admit the problem and keep seeking all the help that he needs. Heal him, Lord.

Sweet Jesus, guide Joel to his brother. Help them both to recapture that closeness they have shared growing up. Bring all of Joels' pain out into the open, so they can both heal. Help David & I to heal.
Lord, all who seek you, help them as you have us. Let them feel and know that help is on the way. I pray that we never lose faith in Your power and Your love for each one of us.
Lord, I ask this in Your name, Jesus, Amen.

"And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you." Ephesians 4:32

"I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God: in him will I trust." Psalms 91:2

PRAYER FOR THE SICK:
Let us pray: Consider Oh Lord, Your faithfull ones, suffering from bodily or mental afflication, and refresh the lives, which You have created, that by being bettered by suffering, they may ever be conscious of Your Merciful Salvation.
May the Lord, Jesus Christ, be with you to guard you, within you to preserve you, before you to lead you, behind you to watch you, above you to bless you, beneath you to catch you.
In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

May the Blessing of Almight God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit descend upon you, and remain for all time. Amen.

Lord you are the true conquerer. Through you addictions are broken as chains are broken for those in bondage. God our nation is sick because of these drugs, the illness leaves grieving families all over the creation, broken bodies, and vessels of suffering. Please break these chains of bondage on our young people, our nation, and our future. Give us strength to choose life and Father lead us to a new day in your presence.
