Please pray for me.

I’m calling upon my fellow CAF Prayer warriors, as I am in need of serious prayer. I’ve been battling an addiction to certain narcotic medication for several years now. I’m trying desperately to overcome this addiction and finally break that chain. The withdrawal symptoms are quite hellish, which is one reason why I’ve been addicted to them for so long. But I’ve had enough. With all the doctor visits, pharmacy swapping, my life has become engulfed by this addiction and everything revolves around my refill days. I’m tired. Please pray for me that these chains will break. I’m ready to move forward. Thank you.

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.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now, and in the hour of our death. Amen.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Saint 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 you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

Amen.

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.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.

Amen.

Saint Maximilian Maria Kolbe, your life of love and labor for souls was sacrificed amid the horrors of a concentration camp and hastened to its end by an injection of a deadly drug.
Look with compassion upon this child of God who is now entrapped in addiction to drugs and whom we now recommend to your powerful intercession. Having offered your own life to preserve that of a family man, we turn to you with trust, confident that you will understand and help. Obtain for us the grace never to withhold our love and understanding, nor to fail in persevering prayer that the enslaving bonds of addiction may be broken and that full health and freedom may be restored to him / her whom we love. We will never cease to be grateful to God who has helped us and heard your prayer for us. Amen.

I was forced due to being misdiagnosed young with ADD and then later due to my label of Asperger’s Syndrome to take high doses of Ritalin and Aderal, which led to at my young age to have the immune system of one far older than me and a extremely restrictive disability in that I live with constant painful muscle spasms in my legs, because I took myself off of a 100 milligram dosage of Aderal cold turkey, and thus suffered damage. I never really felt any addiction but to caffiene and things outside the drug world, but I know the consequences of medicine all to well, so my heart aches for what you are going through right now. But we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us, and we have Saints like Maximillian and our wonderful Mother to pray beside us and walk with us each step of the day as we bare our daily cross and battle each our own demons. Christ gave us Life and where there is Life, there is Hope.

If you have a counseling ministry with your local Parish, such as Stephen’s Ministry I would highly reccomend joining them. I am preparing to do that myself in my struggle against PTSD and the consequences of my decisions because of that particular struggle. Trying to fight such a thing by oneself is the reason why many find it so hard to stay clean even after they manage to get themselves clean for a while. I’ll continue to pray for you and hope that you are able to surround yourself with strong support that will help you beat this addiction. May the Lord Bless thee and keep yee.

Eternal God , in whom mercy is endless,
and the treasury of compassion inexhastible ,
look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us ,
that in difficult moments we might not despair
nor become despondent , but with great confidence ,
submit ourselves to Your Holy Will ,
which is love and mercy itself . Amen

May we sing the praise of God our Savior with the angels and saints in heaven forever and ever. Amen.
