Peace on Earth, and in our hearts, I Pray

 Heavenly Father,

I am praying for my son, at this very moment.  It seems that so many roadblocks have been set before my son. I pray that this is all part of your Divine plan.  Father, you know the struggles that my son is facing. Father, you know what is going on-- at this very moment-- where my son needs a miracle.  I thank you, God, for the abundant grace and mercy you've given to my son.  Thank you, God, that today I am on vacation. My son and I have things to take care of. I pray that you will fill my heart with Godly wisdom, at this very moment. Help me to know what things I can and cannot do to help him. I pray that you will use me as your conduit to do your work in his life. I pray that you will help me to accept the things that I have no control over. I pray that my son will cry out to you, Lord-- and not hear the voice of darkness that brings him down.
I pray for my son's health, and that you will fill him with the courage that he needs to deal with the physical agony of his withdrawals.

Father, I am asking that you will bring peace and calm to the soul of a mother, who is agonizing over her son's pain.

Christmas is a difficult time for so many families.  I pray that those who are in need of a miracle, that only you can do, will feel your power and presence.

I pray for joy, today, in my son's heart.  Thank you, Fahter, that you hear our prayers.  I pray for my blogger friends who are dealing with their own struggles-- that you will fill their hearts with encouragement and hope.

I pray that you will set my son free of the bondage of addiction.

Thank you for praying. I do the same. I wish nobody was in my shoes, but at the same time I am thankful that I am not alone.

Father God,

I join with my brothers and sisters in Christ in lifting Debby and B, and all others in our blogging sphere who are dealing with painful issues right now - addiction issues, loss issues, parenting challenges, whatever the struggles - we lift them before You. Bring peace to their hearts and strength to their souls to surrender to Your healing and deliverance. Grant them eyes to see You and ears to hear You. Give them hope. Let them feel Your love and presence right where they are.

You are a God who comes right into our lives with us, right where we are. You stepped out of heaven and entered this world in the body of a child born in a stable, so You could free us from the destruction and grip of sin on our lives. We give You glory and praise.

In Jesus name,

Debby, very moving prayer and comments. Will B join you on Christmas day? I am thinking and praying for your family, for all of us.

I'm not much on the whole God think but I do hope you and the others here have peace of mind for your holiday celebrations. B is so lucky to have you in his corner and you seem to really understand this disease of addiction very well and I feel you are handling things like you should. Showing B your motherly love without enabling him. Your a very special person Debby and I see that without knowing you and just through your writings which you do very well.
