I must pray to thank God for the many blessings he has recently given my son who is recovering from a heroin addiction. God gave him the gift of new counseling, a good semester at the UW, a new medical diagnosis which will explain his depression, and many good days of sobriety. Please pray that God will continue to give him strength in overcoming his powerful addiction, that he will feel loved and supported and that he will totally break free of his addiction. He wants more than anything to be happy and lead a "normal" college life. Please pray that he makes it through this weekend with sobriety, as it will be a very hard one for him. God has given him so many blessings, hate to ask for more, but I also know that God wants us to ask for his help and love. I need both so badly. I pray in hope and thankfulness. I ask that you do the same if you could please. Thank you so much for any prayers you could offer up for him. God bless!

I've been requesting prayer for my marriage for several months. My wife and I have been separated since September after I committed a horrible sin which caused deep emotional pain for my wife and my stepdaughters. We have a 2 year old son whom my wife hasn't allowed me to see for the past 7 months. I repented immediately and have been seeking help via Christian counseling and Celebrate Recovery. My wife had indicated several months ago that she planned to divorce me. I had recently given up on our marriage and was considering legal action so I could see my son--then, last week, my father in-law unexpectedly passed away from a massive heart attack. I attended his wake, where to my surprise, my wife allowed me to play with my son. She told me that the day before he died, her dad told her that I was not a bad guy--that I probably just messed up one time. She also said he wanted her to let me see my son. Her uncle told me that her dad hoped for us to get back together. She did not say anything about us having a future together, but since our talk at the wake, I feel there may by some small sliver of hope that we could somehow be reconciled someday. I have been praying for a miracle since September, and the way things are converging right now, I know God is up to something. Please pray that my God will use my father in law's death to change my wife's heart and give her the desire to pursue reconciliation. Please pray that God will miraculously restore my marriage and our family. Thanks.
