Look with kindness and mercy on your beloved children who are wrestling with sobriety and freedom from addictions. We pour out our appeal for those who are in their first year, day, hour, minute of hope. We ask for you to give them strength and renewed courage. We lift up those around them who can give support, encouragement, and aid at all hours. We know that you are with them in this time of struggle and effort. Please make your presence real, tangible, and consoling.
Lord, hear our prayer and, in your mercy, answer us.
