A Prayer for Help and Gratitude from B's Mom

Heavenly Father,

I thank you, every day, that my son is alive. Thank you, God, that despite my son's drug addiction and his troubles that you have helped us to grow closer. I lift up my son, in prayer, because he life is still filled with turmoil. My heart is heavy that B is still unable to get health insurance. Father, I pray you will move in the hearts of people who can fix the medical insurance problem. I pray that my son will get Medi-Cal, so that he can have care of his diabetes, his addiction and to help with his dental work. I pray for my son's physical pain in his tooth. Father, I pray that you will give my son the confidence to listen to my advice. You know what it is. 

I also pray for my son's living situation. I pray that his friend "A" will come to admit that he is so heavily addicted to heroin, that he will want to be set free. Lord,I pray for A to get the help that he needs. I pray that you will shake his world in such a way, that his family and girlfriend will no longer enable his addiction. Show them the truth, Father.  Yet, I thank you for showing my son a mirror image of what his behavior was--not that long ago. I pray that my son will continue to be repulsed and angry with A's out of control drug use.

I pray that you will help my son to know what he needs to do. Please, Father, give him the courage to make a change. Set him free of that lease and I pray you will find a place where he can live. 

I also pray that my son will find a better job. I pray for his boss, that my son will not become bitter against the way he is being treated. 

I pray that B's car can be fixed. He is feeling such despair at this.


Above all, Father, I pray that you will fill my son's heart with your presence. He feels so frustrated, and so discouraged. I pray that my son will put his trust in you, and not be in bondage to fear and worry. My son is under spiritual attack. I pray for your blessings to come into his life, and that he will find hope.

Thank you, God, that my son is not using drugs. I continue to place my hope and trust in you. I pray that you will give me a sense of calm, that my stress will no longer manifest in severe headaches.
I am under my own stress, but I continue to cry out to you to be my rock.
I pray that you will help me to become a Godly mother of courage. 

I pray for those families who are feeling so helpless. I pray for addicts who feel hopeless.

You are our God of Hope. Thank you for your grace and mercy on my son, on me and in my marriage.
I pray for peace and clarity, in Jesus Name.
Amen.

That was a beautiful prayer. And I prayed it with you as I read it.

What a beautiful prayer! After I read it, I re-read it praying it with you and changed "my son" to B! And prayed the parts for you too. When I started, there were no comments, as I went to write this, Tom's came up, I think that maybe we were praying it at the same time from across the country... when two or more... Thank you for sharing it!
God bless.
