Have you known the pain of someone you love dying from drugs, or being a Jekyll & Hyde personality through drugs & alcohol? Are you being tempted into trying drugs yourself or do you binge drink to dull the pain & memories? If you do, please pray for yourself here or for the person you know who you want to protect. Our God is so strong & powerful, turn to Him & fight for yourself & your loved ones.
My sister, Debbie is 69 years old and abuses medicine. She had back surgery 10 years ago and was taking Norco daily for the pain. (Previous to this she would drink about a box of wine daily at night.) Now she takes Ambien to sleep, has a prescription of Norco, Valium, Xanax and takes Benadryl too. Often she does not remember things she has to do or what she has said. She seems as if she is "loopy" often. I have tried to talk to her, crying, pleading, to no avail. Her husband has tried talking to her too.
Please pray that God takes that "addicted behavior" away and restores my sister to who he wants her to be. She was raised Catholic, knows Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior, but I don't think she has any kind of relationship with him. Thank you!

Father I lift up Debbie to You Lord. I pray that she we would come to know the truth - that by His stripes, we are healed!!! He paid the price for us, for Debbie. There is no security in drugs - only in You Lord. She is a child of God, You created her for a purpose Lord, bring her back into Your light Father God - help those around her speak with wisdom and love - that she would be restored. Bless Donna and those who persevere to help Debbie. Give them strength Lord and to know the hope we have in You!
In Jesus name, Amen
