Default A prayer to stay away from drugs.

Please ask God to give me the strength to stay away from and resist the temptation to drugs. I'm in a situation where there is an easy reliable source. Please pray to God to watch after me to protect me from losing my job, and help me Get away from this situation. I think that is they key for me to be successful-to leave. I'm also afraid for my health.

I'm in a tough situation here.

Thank you.

Johann, I'm so sorry you're struggling with this right now. Remember whatever our problems are, how much bigger and greater and more powerful is our God who loves us so much. He is right beside you...you're never alone. May God strengthen your resolve to stay away from drugs. God bless.

For Johann, that the Lord may strengthen, protect and guide you, for He is the Way, the Truth and the Life.

The words Our Savior gave us~
Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. Amen

an Act of Faith~
O my God! I firmly believe that Thou art one God in three Divine Persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; I believe that Thy Divine Son became man, and died for our sins, and that He will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe these and all the truths which the Holy Catholic Church teaches, because Thou hast revealed them, Who canst neither deceive nor be deceived. Amen.

and a prayer for St. Michael the Archangel's intercession~
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly hosts, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan, and all the evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Default Re: A prayer to stay away from drugs.

I have many flaws and often make mistakes. I am inconsistent in charity, faith, wisdom and commitment. Forgive me, God.

Yet even if I am less wise and less good than I desire, I have merely this consciousness, this body, this life that I can give You. There is no other self over whom I have right of decision and offering.

Only by Your miracles of grace can I give this ‘me’ totally, and in the way that You wish for Your delight and for others’ benefit. Please make it so, according to Your hope.

I consecrate my entire life to You. Please take all. Never let me go. Make me increasingly Your own. Let me live and accomplish, all that You dreamed of me from loving eternity.

Praying that you lose contact with the source ...

Full of grace
the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb,
Jesus.
Holy Mary

pray for us sinners now
and at the hour of our death.
Amen.

Lord, please help Johann keep free from drugs and help him to always call upon you when he is tempted. May he be strong and brave and never willing to go back on drugs. Help him to always have support and love from others, and help him stay faithful to you. May he avoid the people who are his source of drugs and not approach them even to have a conversation. Grant him self-control and the ability to say No! for the sake of his health and for the sake of his eternal soul. Thank you, Lord, for hearing my prayer. Amen.
