Help my son get better

by LIse ()

Dear Lord, I don’t ask for many favours but I certainly need one now. My son suffers from a serious mental illness as well as substance abuse. He has been in either hospital or rehab for the last 6 months. He is on the last leg of this horrible journey and he is very tired and discouraged. He wants to leave the facility and come home but if he does that he goes to jail.He is very scared and alone and confused. Depression is rearing its ugly head again. The rehab center is making a decision today about whether he can stay in the program or send him home. I am begging that you help them find compassion for,his poor soul ! He has come such a long way and he needs your strength and courage and the centre needs your compassion for him. Please help us all in this horrific journey of drug abuse and mental,illness. The whole family is devastated and we are so worried about him. His Dad and I are totally exhausted and we don’t know how much longer we can cope with this .Please pray that they keep him and that he sees the light that he has to stay in treatment. Help him Lord, I beg you.

    I am in the same/similar situation with my son. I pray that the Lord helps our sons conquer their drug addiction and health issues and that the Lord comes into their lives and gives them strength and courage. I also pray the Lord gives strength to us, the parents and family, to remain strong during this time as our family is broken over this. I pray that the Lord hears our prayers and answers them. God bless.
