Lightbulb A Prayer for our Addicted Children

For all the children, no matter how young or old, no matter if still suffering or long in recovery...this prayer is dedicated to you...


"Children Who Are Addicted

Most merciful God, accept our prayers on behalf of the children and teenagers of this world who are addicted to drugs and alcohol. Hear the cries of the parents who are afraid for their children. Awaken the hearts of the parents who are unconcerned for their offsprings’ welfare. Empower every community to act to prevent the spread of the use of chemical substances, that the children of this world may receive the inheritance you desire for them: life abundantly. Amen. "



Shalom!

Amen. My prayers for all the children, and our adult children, and all who still suffer and those who struggle. May they find light to guide their path.

Dear Lord, bless those who seek
solace in substances;
helplessly hurting their bodies,
trying to feed their souls.

Father, let them see You are the
food they crave.
Envelop them in the warm blanket
of Your eternal love.

God, please keep them safe from the
perils of their actions.
Protect those around them as well.

Give them the strength, O Lord, to see
that it is You they’ve been searching for.
For there is no void You cannot fill.
And You are always with them.

With You there is no fear, no pain,
no judgment -
And all their sins will be forgiven.

They need only look to Your hopeful
light within them all,
Instead of the demons that beckon.

We pray they know they are always
worthy of Your love,
And can forever bask in Your
Holy Grace. May peace be theirs.

A prayer for the children of addiction and for those of us who love them, may we all be protected today.

The light of God surrounds me;
The love of God enfolds me;
The power of God protects me;
The presence of God watches over me;
Where ever I am God is.

For the kids...

I pray today to the Lady of Fire,
great Brighid, Triple Goddess.
There is someone here who needs you,
someone who is sick.
I ask you to bring your healing flame,
the warmth of life, into him,
burning away all that is making him sick,
that I might always have cause to praise you.

May the spirit of all that is good and wise walk beside our children and protect them today.

I call the light of golden rays
I seek protection thus,
I pray for heavenly forces at my side
angels, sages, spirit guides or wolves
who walk with cunning skill
Come to my aid!
Come at my will!
Black bird soaring light my path
so I am victim to no one's wrath!
And when my journey knows success,
all those who aid me Goddess bless!

Most loving God,

we ask your blessing upon all
who suffer from addiction.
Strengthen them to reach out for help.
Enable them to take the first step to recovery.
Bless them with the persistence to persevere
in the fight to be free.
Give courage and hope to their families,
drawing them close together
in the power of your love,
which alone can transform our living.
Amen.

Praying for all children young and old who suffer today.
May you soon find the gift of peace and light from the miseries of addiction.


:present:


Praying for the future of all the new precious children
they never need know the horrors of addiction.
The disease of addiction be wiped out
time for all the suffering to end.

Gonna print these prayers, take em home and share them with my wife. Our lives have in so many ways been affected by addictions! Only with my strong recovery can we begin to mend the twisted fate drug and alcohol abuse has thrown our way. I pray for Katie, Josh, Brandon, Bradley, Brianna, and Brittany (our kids). I pray that I can continue to take the first step in breaking a long lineage of alcohol and drug dependance and the crazy way it affects our lives. I pray to be the best example I can for the young people I can influence during my remaining time here on earth. I pray to show them that love of God is the best way for me.

We pray, O God of hope,
for all families
whose lives are torn and disrupted
by drugs and alcohol.
Enable them to identify the illness.
Strengthen them to seek help.
Bless them with the power of your love,
which imparts transformation and wholeness
to those who trust in your name.
Grant that as they walk this tortured road,
they may journey together
and bound close in the bond of love.
Amen.

Lord in heaven,
please listen to all those
who are praying to you now.

Those who are sad and crying,
those who have lost friends and family.

Those who are alone
and frightened.

Help them to remember,
that you are there
and you are listening.

In Jesus' name, we pray.
Amen.

Prayer To Live With Grace

May we discover through pain and torment,
the strength to live with grace and humor.
May we discover through doubt and anguish,
the strength to live with dignity and holiness.
May we discover through suffering and fear,
the strength to move toward healing.
May it come to pass that we be restored to health and to vigor.
May Life grant us wellness of body, spirit, and mind.
And if this cannot be so, may we find in this transformation and passage
moments of meaning, opportunities for love
and the deep and gracious calm that comes
when we allow ourselves to move on.

Rabbi Rami M. Shapiro

A Prayer

You are mighty, G*D, who brings healing to the sick,
You are great in granting salvation,
providing the living with sustenance, with lovingkindness,
caring for the sick with great mercies,
supporting the fallen, healing the sick,
releasing the captive,
and keeping faith with those who are lost among the living,
Who is like you, Creator of mighty acts, and who compares to you,
The Eternal One who restores health, and causes salvation to sprout,
You who are faithful, comforting the ill among us,
Blessed are You, Adoni who heals the sick.

Shalom!

Most merciful God,
there are many in this city
who hate themselves,
who consider their lives worthless,
who have not known the healing of love.
Touch them with the wonder and power
of your transforming love
that their lives may be made whole,
that they may find fulfillment in life,
that they may rejoice in your blessing.
Amen.

Maybe I should starting reading this forum more often. Today has been difficult for me with my son. He's hurting and I'm feeling his pain. But I received a moment of happiness reading the prayers that are being said for our kids.

Thank you to all for sharing them with me.

Blessing

O Holy St. Jude, Apostle and Martyr, great in virtue
and rich in miracles, near kinsman of our lord Jesus Christ;
faithful intercessor of all who invoke your special patronage in the time of need.
To you I have recourse from the depths of my heart
and humbly beg, to whom God has give such great power, to come to my assistance.
Help me in my present and urgent petition.
In return, I promise to make your name known and cause you to be invoked.
St. Jude pray for us and those who invoke your aide.
Amen.
