    Dear most loving and precious Jesus, Our Lord of Lords and King of Kings, I ask that you enter into my husbands soul, with the assistance of St. Benedict, to recognize the addiction, realize the damage caused and turn from it and get the help he most desperately needs in Korea. You, Lord, are all the things we strive for and you have enduring love for us, you patiently wait with open arms, I know my husband is in a deep, dark place and only through you can his journey begin. Thank you for listening—grant me the grace of forgiveness, patience and a love like yours for us. Amen.

    I am praying with all of you who are battling addictions or living with those in turmoil. Addiction is a disease and a tough one to overcome, but with faith in God, this battle can be won. He strengthens the soul, the will and the faith of those who call upon him for help. Praying and trusting that God can heal addictions is the first step. My son is clean with God’s loving help and he has returned to church and prayers. God sends miracles…trust Him.

    I am so sorry about the loss of your son to drugs. I pray for you and your family. Take comfort in knowing that his soul is at peace and he knows the love God has for him. Pray that he can help others heal from their addictions by praying to God for them. Addiction recovery and healing is something we need to pray for daily. So many families have someone that they love who has addictions and/or mental issues. People with addictions have a chemical imbalance in their brains that cause the addictions. We need to pray for help and a natural cure of this chemical imbalance. I pray that God helps all addicts by increasing their faith in him and the knowledge that God is the Ultimate Physician and He can Heal them and bring them a peace the world cannot give. God Bless you, Janie and all families dealing with this disease. Amen.

    To Jane….when my son was doing drugs over 2 months ago, a friend posted this powerful prayer to St. Monica for him. Thanks be to God and His Miraculous healing my son and his girl friend have been drug free. Putting Faith and Trust in God and His Will for us is the first step. I add my prayers for you and remember that “All things are POSSIBLE through God. God Bless you, comfort you and heal you. Amen.

    Dear St Monica, troubled wife and mother,
    many sorrows pierced your heart during your lifetime.

    Yet, you never despaired or lost faith.

    With confidence, persistence, and profound faith,
    you prayed daily for the conversion
    of your beloved husband, Patricius,
    and your beloved son, Augustine;
    your prayers were answered.

    Grant me that same fortitude, patience,
    and trust in the Lord.

    Intercede for me, dear St Monica,
    that God may favorably hear my plea.
    (mention your intention here)

    Grant me the grace to accept His Will in all things,
    through Jesus Christ, our Lord,
    in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
    one God, forever and ever.

Remember that you are already forgiven because of his son’s sacrifice and that as long as you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior that you are also forgiven. Please find the strength to seek out the help you need.
