I use these forums as a safe space for people to add they’re prayers, unspoken or detailed, whatever may be on your heart.
This week I’m going to do it a little differently. I’m going to let you guys know what’s on my heart and how my family could use your prayers.
If you read my blog frequently, you’ll be aware that my brother is currently struggling with addiction. He was recently incarcerated for assault charges, and is since out on bond. He cut our entire family off a few weeks ago, and to say it’s been tough is an understatement. He needs help that we can’t provide him, because he doesn’t think he needs it. We all constantly worry about getting a phone call that no one should ever have to receive. We miss him, and who he was before addiction overtook his life.
I ask for prayers for protection over him, calm for my family, and mending for my mama’s heart; I know it hurts her the most, and being a fixer, it’s not easy to watch all of this pain and be able to do nothing.
Your prayers and heart are welcome here, and I know that someday, this will be a well used forum for people to get the prayers they so desperately need, instead of continuing to try and manage on their own.
Our God is so much bigger than that.
