Most merciful God, accept our prayers on behalf of the children and teenagers of this world who are addicted to drugs and alcohol. Hear the cries of the parents who are afraid for their children. Awaken the hearts of the parents who are unconcerned for their offsprings' welfare. Empower every community to act to prevent the spread of the use of chemical substances, that the children of this world may receive the inheritance you desire for them: life abundantly. Amen.
