Christian mother, BCC teacher asks prayers for son at critical moment

This is from a Christian mother and Bible-correspondence-course teacher whose addicted son overdosed several weeks ago. Names have been omitted for privacy’ sake, at the request of those who shared it.

Please send out an emergency prayer request to pray for our son! We found out late last night that police issued a warrant for when he overdosed in October. They told us they can charge anyone who overdoses. They took the needle for testing and said results would be back in 2 to 6 weeks, then if charging him, they would do so.

We hadn’t heard a thing for almost four months, so we thought they weren’t going to charge him. He has been doing well, going to all of his drug counselor and psychological appointments, working, staying clean and passing all drug tests. He’s been sober for 109 days! And now this! A misdemeanor and felony 5.

Please pray that he won’t despair and give up and try to overdose or hurt himself again. Help the judge see that it was a relapse and that he is really trying to get it together. Pray that our son will see that he can work this out, no matter what. That even if it takes a long time, it is better than death and that while there is life, there is hope. Continue reading
