In my line of work (Police Officer) I deal with all sorts. The past few months I've built a bit of raphor with Amber. The other day she broke down in front of me and her sister. She is 16 yrs old. She told us she is a Marijuana, Amphetamine & Cocaine addict, all since she was 13 yrs old. She is also an alcoholic. She pays for her drugs and booze by whoring herself. She told me she was disgusted by what she does, and wants out. I'm trying to get her to rehab, but she also needs God in her life. She is really ashamed of herself, and her life is in turmoil. Pray for her that she finds rehab, and also finds God. Her sister is trying to look after her, but she is about at the end of her rope too. Please pray.

Lord, have mercy and save your creature who has fallen into the trap of the enemy.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Lord have mercy on Thy handmaiden and strengthen her soul.

I think the French may be on to something here.

Lord, have mercy.
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.
