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
You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

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.
