Prayers for a troubled women
« on: December 06, 2005, 11:28:41 PM »
My secretary at work came into my office today and told me that her 34 year old daughter Karen has a severe cocaine addiction.  She has not had any contact with her daughter for three days, and every conventional therapy/treatment/intervention has been unsuccessful of releasing her from the grip of this terrible drug.

Please pray for Karen, and let her see the light and find her way out of the darkness and out of the grip of her addiction.  Thank you for your prayers.
"Wherever you go, there you are."

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

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
