Help with In-laws


I just got off the phone with my SIL and found out that my BIL is drinking heavily again and it is a very bad situation.
My BIL is an alcoholic that has gone through rehab before he met and married his wife. His brother gave him a beer awhile ago and the rest is history.:mad:

The whole family is messed up and need prayers for salvation and for healing of this problem with alcohol. My hubby isnt as bad as his siblings but he does drink.:frowning:

I appreciate all of your prayers and please pray for wisdom for my SIL so she knows how to handle the situation. She did speak of divorce but I told her to not think that way and to try and fix the problem. I think she is too upset right now to think about fixing it. Although my BIL doesnt think he has a problem.:frowning:

I told her I would be there for her and support her through whatever happens.

Thank you and God Bless


:signofcross: Praying!


Praying. :frowning:



Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of death.


Thank you all so far.

I told my SIL all I could do for her now is pray. I also believe it is the most powerful thing I can do for her ever really.:smiley:


I am praying for a peaceful resolution to this terrible time within your family. May they feel the comfort of the Lord, ever at their sides.


AMEN!! Thank you
