Please Pray for My Future
Hello and first of all thank you so much for considering all these strangers in your prayers. I know god will bless you for your hearts for others. I feel so much more secure and considered knowing I’m being prayed for.
Recently my life has turned upside down. I had money saved a secure job. And a career plan. I have since lost all of these things through no small fault of my own (I had a relapse) i’ve lost everything. I find myself discouraged and losing drive or direction, and starting from pretty much nothing, I don’t know where to begin. I’m not a bad person, but an addiction that I thought I had left far behind reminded me pretty severely that I can never let my guard down. I’ve disappointing both friends and family and without much transportation my options are limited. More than that i’m afraid to put myself out there. I’m in a rut. Spiritually and financially. It’s hard to find even gods purpose for me at this time.
Please pray for my parents to have a peace in their hearts and minds as they worry for me and my future and are disappointed and fear they will continue to be. Please pray for me to find some direction.
Thank you so much for caring enough to pray for me
I’ve been sober for 7 years and in recovery for 22. I’ve had at least 50 plus relapses. I agree that relapse is part of sobriety. It’s not how many times you relapse but how long you stay there. Don’t worry about what’s happened in the past (that you relapsed). Start a new day again, a sober day. I promise you it gets easier. And one day you won’t even think about the substance you’re addicted to. That I promise and its the most freeing feeling ever. Hang in there and just know “This too shall pass.”
Ok Smiley get up off your knees and dust them off… The God we serve understands and loves us even when our weaknesses take over of a time…. Smile… it confuses the enemy as he tries to make your life misrable…. To beat your addiction you MUST get rid of ALL OF THE FRIENDS you have that do and would have you do with them the things you know and understand are stopping you from abtaining the life you want….. there can be no exceptions…. remember… you are your friends….. Next the Word will be a great place to start…. and lot of Prayer FROM YOU… Have you sought help for your addiction yet? IF not then this should be your first order of business… Are you fully engaged with your church yet…. if not then you need to surround yourself with other Christians. Get involved… and stay involved. Remember we are the body of Christ and when one of the parts of the body are hurt or sick, the rest of the body joins together to help the sick part…..
Father God, maker of heaven and earth…. Our brother smiley is in need of your mercy and love on a major scale… Lord of all creation help this brother becomer and overcomer… FIll this brother with Your Holy Spirit and guide him towards You Father… Show your Glory not only to our brother but to his family as well… Let them see the major changes taking place in our brothers life, his heart, and his actions…. Father for the family… hold them in your arms and help them with the patience they need to see this through… Lord God send the enemy packing and away from our brother and his family… Lord send away all of the wood be friends in this brothers life as we know that to break away from his addiction he will need to get away from all that would see him fail…… we ask all of this in the mighty name and through the mighty name of Christ… understanding that our part is to deliver….. and standing in faith….. Amen
I definitely have to agree with Gerald on his point about your friends. I had a cousin who went to drug rehab on several occasions. He would do great while he was there. However, as soon as he got back to his old neighborhood and old friends, he’d start back doing the same things they were doing.
The only way you can break this chain is by breaking those things off that influence you back in that direction.
i wish you the best and you’ll be in my prayers.
