Son in Need


I have previously asked for prayers for my son who is recovering from alcoholism and addiction and has a baby on the way in less than 2 months. He has made progress in the last month, but is having employment problems and I discovered another lie over the weekend. Please pray that somehow, someway he gets it together before his daughter is born. He has a wonderful woman in his life and so much at risk. He needs a new job ASAP and lightning to strike him to make him see that he needs to be honest so that those that love him can continue to be there for him. I try to detach but it is so very hard - I believe it is beginning to affect my health. I appreciate any prayers offered - I feel that is the only thing that can help. God bless you.




Thank you for your generousity in prayer.:signofcross:

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.[/size][/FONT]


I’ll be praying for your son. A baby is a gift from God and also a great responsibility. Let’s hope he gets rid of his addiction.


Sandra, a mother’s prayers are very powerful, so keep it up, but God bless you and preserve your health. Somehow, though it is hard for you to imagine how, find an inner time to seek the soothing Love you also need. May your son become wakeful to the miracle that is coming his way. May you and your daughter in law be strengthened. In Jesus’ name, Amen


Praying for your son!


Oh Lord, you can conquer any addiction. I pray that you send your healing Spirit upon this man, and restore him to Your plan for him. In Jesus name we pray.




Prayers of strength for you and prayers for your son!


I will pray for your son.


I will keep your son in prayer that he will overcome his weaknesses and find rewarding employmnet to provide support for himself and his little family…


I’ll pray for your son. :gopray:


My prayers for you :crossrc:


I will pray for your son for him to rid himself of his addictions. I also know how hard it is for a mother to see this and pray day after day and see little or no results. Don’t give up. I will pray for the Lord to continue to strengthen you so that you won’t give up praying for your son.




Keep the faith, I will pray for his family and you too, especially since I know you hurt for him




Praying your lost lamb finds his way by allowing God’s love and love of family move his spirit to where it needs to be. God Bless.
