I have a son that is a drug addict. We have tried helping him to the point. where we lost everything and ended up homeless. My son got lost in the streets. One day I get a phone call from him. Where he need help because his was badly heard. We were being housed by a family member. And the didn’t wanted him coming over. We had no money are place to stay. I told my son i couldn’t help him. The only thing i had left was my prayers and my love. I have been praying for 2 1/2 years. Hadn’t heard from him didn’t know if he was alive. I felt i had fell as a mother. I kept texting to him on is old number, that’s all i had. 2weeks ago i got a text. And it was my son. Telling me that he was on a recovery center and the he was getting good help there. And that he loved me. I just want to tell all my family in Christ thank you for all your prayers. And if there is anyone that feels there cross is to much for you. Please don’t stop praying. God will never live us. And even when we give up he still right there by our side. Thank you my lord God and all the saint. Many Blessing to everyone that reads this. Amen

    • May God continue to bless you greatly and your son. Amen. Whatsoever you do to the least of thy brothers that you do unto me.

    • Hello Ch,

      Concerning your son, what a blessing for your son contacting
      you while in rehab. God is so good.

      Please pray for a friend of mine whose son is addicted to
      drugs as well. At the age of 14 as a first string high school
      football player, one of the older players handed him an
      mood altering (I think heroin) drug and he has been an addict ever since. He is now 29 and is still addicted. Like you, the family is destitute trying to help him and he has resorted to
      breaking into the house, stealing, and selling his family’s
      possessions in order to purchase drugs.

      I ask all of our Pray More Novena family to pray for this family.
      Ch, I will pray for your son and family.

      Blessings ~ Molly

    • Thank you for sharing Ch may God’s blessings be upon you and your son and may you reunite soon. Thank you for your words of encouragement that even when our cross is too much to carry we keep praying.
      May God bless us all.
