I feel bad in not seeing your post concerning your son. I do SO relate to your pain and his! You may recall our 3rd born; a daughter, is a drug addict; with actions of the dirtiest sins, the lying for so many years....and so much more! I did pray, some time back, but will pray again with present urgency for you and your son. GOD alone can provide total victory. We MUST rely, in faith, upon the Loving Heavenly FATHER.

How is M doing, Jo?
He seems to be doing well. He's coming back to town from school for Xmas break, he'll be staying with a family from the church he attended before he left to finish his education.

Thank you all for the prayers, he seems to be doing much better. I'm praying and hoping this sobriety and this want to finish his education will continue strong!

Oh YES!!!! GIANT, wonderful, important goals! If we ever sat and talked about our kids and addiction, we would probably both end up crying and laughing! :)

Continued prayers.

Just remember the righteous man falls seven times and rises again (pro 24:16). It seems like even though he's stumbled in the past he gets up again so take heart. God keep him and protect him always.

I'm glad we're all continuing in prayer for this young man, but damn, my heart quickens each time this thread gets bumped.

Maybe, just a huge amount.

But I'm overjoyed to learn my panic was misplaced. Prayers of thanksgiving and for continued conversion. I've been praying he follows you across the Bosporus.

Praying. Keep Nikki in your prayers also, as she's not ready to admit even needing help.
