Staying Clean


#1

Greetings

I have had a very bad substance abuse problem for the past 2 years, and just now getting a handle on it. It has been 15 days since I have smoked crack. I'm asking for support in any form, prays, emails, anything else. I need all the help and people praying for me in this very early stage of my recovery, since I am still weak and have strong desires to go out and use. I will be remembering all of your in my preys as well.

God Bless

Today, on the feast day of the Immactulate Conception, I ask my mother, and your mother, Mary, to please help you to stay free of drugs. Keep him high on Jesus, not on crack. Ask your son to send His grace down and strengthen him so he can be clean.

In your name, I pray
Amen.

St. Maximilian Kolbe is the patron saint against drug addictions. I pray for his intercession, that you may find strength and stay on the right path.

Graham, God bless you!

My everything, our God, I give to You—every breath, each cell, all that I ever am, have or do.

Now I ask for Your everything—whatever You wish to give to me and to others through me.

Please nurture and grant this everything growth, blossom and fruit. Then that everything I do give to You—in time and eternity.

Loving God, You loved me into existence. Please help me to become truly the person I am created to be, so that others can experience Your love, goodness, and beauty in me, and can receive the blessings You intend for them through me.
