My son needs your prayers and positive energy to overcome his heroin addiction. He had been sober for 2.5 years, but then had a terrible relapse. I thank God that he is still alive, but he needs prayers to be strong, stay healthy, do the right things, keep his faith in God, and get clean. He wants to be sober, but he is so weak. Please pray that God gives him what he needs to overcome this awful disease. Please also pray that he will take his medicines like he should, keep his appointments, go to his classes, and feel positive about himself. He is angry with God right now, so I hope that he reaches out and shares his feelings with God. I also pray that none of you ever have to deal with children with addictions . . . it's a real heart breaker. Thank you so much for any prayers or positive energy you can draw up for my son. God bless each of you!

My oldes daughter is a first-year teacher. She is really struggling with her class of students. She has about 25 children and they each have their own issues and struggles. I see her trying to help each one individually while at the same time teach them as a whole. When one child acts out it creates problems for the whole class. She has such a good heart. She tries not to yell at the children, she tries to use a more gentle approach to keep the children in order. Because of all the stress in the classroom and dealing with depression and anxiety, the school has put her on a one month medical leave. Since she has been gone, the school has attempted to put other teachers in her classroom and these teachers are struggling as well with the ability to teach and at the same time keep the children focused and centered on the work at hand. These children need prayers for their issues. And my daughter needs prayers to strengthen and sustain her during this time. She has such a good heart and kind spirit and she so very much wants to succeed and make a difference in the children's education. Will you please pray for her and her students. Thank you.
