My ex-wife and her painkiller addiction
« on: July 26, 2010, 12:32:04 AM »
Dear Friends,

If I've already made this prayer request, please forgive.

Pray for my ex-wife who's in denial about a painkiller addiction and lost her housing (she's not homeless, to my knowledge).

May the Lord have mercy on her soul and give her strength to conquer this addiction.

Amen!

Lord, have mercy

I hope she is able to overcome the addiction.

Lord Have Mercy!

Is there a local AA in your area? They deal with Narcotics too.

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Lord, have mercy.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
