My brother.  He has been an addict for a long time now and because of  it he may lose his freedom for a long time.  He is not a bad person, just lost his way at a young age.  He has done nothing really bad except getting caught with drugs, but that is all it takes.  I love him very much and have tried all I know to be there for him, but this time, there is nothing I can do except pray that maybe this is God's way of keeping him off the drugs before he kills himself.

This has to be the hardest thing I've ever done ... but I can no longer walk behind you on that road that you choose to keep taking.  I will always care for you deeply and hope one day you understand the reasons.  I hope you find your inner strength to keep off of drugs, and always know that Steven loves you.

~ William Robert ~
I would like to light a candle for our son who is into drugs and alcohol and presently is in jail due to these,  although he denies he has any problem.  His girlfriend has a black eye from his last escapade.  He is still in jail because he has worn out all his friends and no one wants to help him, including us.  We feel he is where he needs to be at this time although we love him with all our hearts.  He will have to go through this alone and hopefully he will realize that Jesus is there for him when he is ready.

Desiree ~ Crack Addict
She is in jail right now and has a lot of other legal problems to overcome.  But, the most important problem she HAS to triumph over is her addictions.  Please pray for her.

~ Jeff ~
He has been struggling with his addiction since a very, very young age.  I have watched him sincerely attempt recovery and fail a number of times.  He is such a beautiful person and he is so filled with despair and self-loathing.  I also lost a sister at age 25 to addiction, and not a day of my life goes by that I do not grieve her.  Hers was a very violent death.
~ Scott~
My much loved son, fighting crack addiction.
~ Tom Lonron ~
I am praying day and night for you. I love you and I know that this addiction is bigger than you. You are gone right now and I don't know where you are. We are planning some tremendous things in our lives and the devil wants to hold us back. Please Jesus, please help Tom through this. He is such a good man, and will be an inspiration to others when he can beat this. Please help us God.
~ Corinne ~
A very special young woman who is an addict

~ Stephen ~
My 26 year old son, fighting addiction to marjuana for the past 11 years. May God deliver you soon from the depression and the hopelessness you so often feel.

~  Danny  ~
 My son an addict.  I would hope this candle burns forever for Danny since he is in recovery for 9 months now and is only 16 years old. I love him so much and I want a new and clean life for him.

~  Gina  ~
I'm 34 years old and have done hard core drugs from the age of eight at the hands of my father.   I don't blame him, he just didn't know how to be a father and thought it would be easier to treat me like a friend.   I continued my use until seven months ago when i hit rock bottom.  I was shooting meth and I looked down at my arms and cried because I was a junkie.   I couldn't go and see any family because of the shame.   Now I'm clean and I feel great.   Life is giving me one more chance and I'm taking it.  God bless you and your strength.  Thank you for this site.
~  Joey  ~

My brother Mike whom I love so much. We've battled the same disease for so many years but he seems to have given up. It breaks my heart to know that he is caught in the grips of the dreadful evil disease of addiction. God please help him. 
My beloved daughter. She is addicted to alcohol and cocaine.  May guardian angels light her path, and keep watch over her
by day and by night.
~ Mike and Rene'~ 
Married, so called "recreational drug users" for over 25 years. Now they are caught in the downward spiral of destroying their brains, their bodies and lives with methamphetamine. Meth or life? They must make that choice now.  I lift them up to God, call on mighty angels to protect them and to open the doors of their minds to the light of reason. I love them so much. Mom
Melissa ~ Addict

My beautiful son. Today he is 20 years old.  I'd give my life for his life. 
My Son, whose care I have recently handed over to the Lord.  I can no longer be an enabler. 

~ Becky-Mother ~
~ Crissi- Daughter/Addict ~
Becky is a wonderful person who is carrying this so very hard burden, please pray for her to stay strong, and please pray for her daughters recovery. We met and have become wonderful friends from this wonderful web-site. I thank God for this web-site and God sent me such a wonderful friend.   My son was released from prison 10//01 and he is doing good and I thank God for this and please continue to pray for us also God Bless the ones who are in recovery and the ones who still suffer....Prayer and handing my sons life in Gods hands helped us both so much...I still pray for us each day and Thank God he helped me to stay strong and has seemed to have healed my sons addiction..but things could change but I keep the faith
Thank you all!
Debby from Georgia
~ Alex ~
My beautiful 18 year old son, an addict for the last 5 yrs, in and out of rehab. & juvenile detention, now in adult jail.

Please pray for us. 
Thank You. Carolyn
~ For Jewel ~
 .  although I personally do not know the demons that torment the addicts mind and body, I do love the inner Jewel with all my heart.  Each day is a struggle for her sobriety and she feels as if she is so weak.  I cannot think of a stronger person who could resist such powerful temptations.

If he fails he will be sent to 20 years in prison for committing 4 felonies (forging/stealing prescriptions). He has been in and out of jail and detox. This is his last chance. So far it's been 6 months. He is handsome and bright. I will never understand why? A special friend, Michael.  My son, Jaimie who is only 18 and is currently in drug rehab. He is addicted to meth.

My sister, she has been on and off prescription pains killers, valiums, etc. for years.  I lived with her for a long time, didn't know if she would be dead in the morning or not.  When she wasn't,  I tried to put it behind me till the next day.

My sweet son Scott - 
Age 19 - I love you always, Mom

For Billie from Mother 

Dana Bruce, my son. I am his mother. Clean 9 days now. His first detox was March 2002, relapsed after 2 months clean. This time was heroin. Please pray for him to stay clean. His addiction has been just 2 long years. I read on this website, lost souls who have been addicted for many, many years. I can only pray that we have caught him in time. He has a beautiful wife and much support from his family. He has hurt us all so badly.

Michael, a God's child. David Randall, my beloved cousin/brother who is a 54 year old addict that has not found his way due to enabling. His mother just passed away and now our family is trying to let him go into Gods hands. He has only one option for us to help him and that is to take him to a rehab when he is ready. We love him so and it hurts so very much to do this.

I see you walking the streets of Asheboro,NC and it breaks my heart. Surely there must be someone out there that wonders where you are.  You're somebody's daughter, sister, mother. It is so obvious that the drug that you are chasing has caught you. I ask God to watch over you and to make room for you in heaven. One day precious girl, you will have rest. God Bless You.

Robyn (Me)
 By the grace of God, I'll be clean and sober for 8 years in August.  Sometimes it's still so hard.  Thank you.

My alcoholic brother. My father died this month and the alcoholism has escalated and I am fearful for his life and the lives of those around him.

Lord, please help my husband to realize the truth about what he is doing to himself and others and bind satan so that he will release my husbnad's mind and body from this addiction.

Dave .... I will love you through eternity,,Always remember..Hand over heart,,every breath,,always by your 
side  ..... 831

For Aubrey,
I know the statistics for recovery are grim, but I believe that "My God is greater than any problem anyone has".  I pray daily for you and others who are struggling to overcome their addiction.  There is power in prayer & I have seen miracles.   I know addiction is of the devil, but Jesus has won the victory &I believe He can heal you and all those who cry out to him.  Aubrey I love you and I believe in you.  I know you can do it!!

Matthew...my handsome 23 year old son.  He is meek and mild, a humble soul with a heart of gold.  He is also an addict in recovery. He struggles every day. Please pray that the lord watch over him and let him realize he is a beautiful person with so much to offer the world. God bless all mothers and their addict children!
Brant J.D. (I would greatly appreciate a candle lite for my fiancee, who is a loving man along with loving partner, but most of all a loving father who needs to reach GOD and well I feel right now I'm his only help in getting there. I wish I could submit my story so you could better understand where I am coming from, but I'm trying myself to put all of this in GODS hands! I just so happened to reach this web site and well if this is not GOD talking then I don't know what it is. I thought of not telling why I have asked for this candle but I feel I need to. My once healthy, full of life fiancee is additicted to the most horrible drug their is, CRACK! We are now apart because of this horrible thing they call crack, I want nothing more than to be with him, because spending these days apart are killing me inside but I know to that when we are back together ( with GODS hands) we will be to eachoher what we promised to be in the beginning. I could probably write all night about how much this is tearing our lives apart but the faster the candle can be lite the faster I can hold the man I've waited for my entire life!Please pray for my dear Brant and for our family we so much want to be.  IN TEARS, MISSY

My beautiful daughter, Tiffany 23 years young. She is my heart.May her angels and guides surround her,protect her and heal her. Walk into the light sweet child and find your way back to life and love.

Michael David my loving son who is so sweet clean, but through his addiction he and I don't know who he is.  God keeps watching over my son for he has a plan for him.  Bless you Michael Rachael,
The mother of my beautiful grandaughter!  I want you to get better soon.  Please try hard to come back to your daughter, she needs you so much.

My beautiful,precious friend. She's helped me see into my husbands alcoholism and reflect on the miracle of me being six and a half years clean. I pray for God to deliver her from her addiction but more so to deliver her from herself. A three year prison sentence is her alternative and I pray she stops looking at what she has to lose and focuses on all she has to gain. One day at a time isn't a long enough goal, it has to be "this is the first day of the rest of my life sober".One day at a time leaves on option for using tomorrow and that kind of option is dadly to an addict.

My son Mark,
He is 21 years old and has just relapsed again. I don't know how long I can watch this disease slowing take his life. Please pray for him, I am so afraid. This time I'm even mad at him, and I have never been mad at him. He knows I'm mad at him and this scares me more. I'm afraid he will do something because he thinks i have given up on him. Please pray for us.

For Myself .... I am an active addict for the last 20 years. I can feel that my body does not recover as it used to. God has been kind to me ... it's just not easy being too involved and plugged in to this world that lives through so much pain and suffering ... somehow, a mind altering substance shuts it all off ... I can no longer feel your pain ... not to mention mine.   Drugs (its high) provides me a sense of welcomed isolation ... it disconnects me from all the imperfections and subhuman qualities people tend to practice with every breath.  Under the influence, the gnawing, needy voices stop .... it's easier to chase drugs than change the world ....

As an addict I yearn to be free from the constant reminder of society on how I should behave ... what I should or should not do ... The only way to help an addict is to let them be ... let them suffer the consequences of their actions without being condescending or militant about it. And yes   ... love them ... I mean truly love them without bounds ... as this disease knows no limits either.

My husband who is nether here nor there and my brother which we are all seeing them lose and can not help them. its really hard i dont know how to get myself and i am not the one with the problem but they do not understand that it effects everyone .it hurts so bad not to be able to help. i sometimes just want to let my husband go but he will not go . i am sorry please god help us it is sooo sad give these addicts strength to come out of the dark please hear our prayers.  
Thank you

Chris ~ Addict
          Today you left our home searching for love the love of drugs. May god watch over you,  and keep you safe.

My Husband Bill, I pray each and every day that you will see the light of your angels guiding you into recovery from crack cocaine. For the many long 11 years that we have endured the suffering of addiction together. I pray that we will live through this and see the hope and love all around us in our kids eyes. I pray that all our hopes and dreams for our family come true and addiction does not have to rip our hearts out anymore. It was enough that our sister sacraficed her life to dope. I pray that we don't do the same.

Casey, my son "the great enabler" 
that is in love with a crack addict.
Jessica, age 20, Knoxville, TN -Entered detox on January 4th and full in patient treatment today on January 8th.

Roanne, age 19.  Though selfish it may seem, i want to light the light for me. I am not as religious as i used to be, I prayed for God to help me. Now as I try to recover though and its very hard, the temptations raw, I hope the Lord can guide me through and help me once more. I realise now my head is clearer that he has been there for me, else I would be dead now or not have what I have. Please help me to remain strong, and I will pay you back I promise some how.

CORINNA (addict) 
but especially for the baby she just had
which was born addicted to methamphetamines
Danny my son who is 33 years old and 
an addict.  He current is serving a 5 year sentence in a West Virginia prison.  
He suffers from severe depression.  
Now he is in solitude for using drugs in prison.  He faces more time when he has done this 5 years.  I light a candle for him and pray that he will overcome his addictions and depression and have a health productive life.

Nicci...I love you and pray for you. May God protect you.
Love Mom

My son Michael. Right now he is serving a 5 year sentence but is in it's last phase and is in a halfway house. He is a crack addict and also addicted to this girl who is a heroin addict. She got pregnant and told my son it was his child. When the little angel was born I was there and so was DYFUS. I battled them for custody because this was my grand son who was born addicted to heroin, crack and methadone. i spend day nd night for one month of his life at his side in the hospital. God heard me and gave me custody. But then the bomb hit, paternity tests were take and it was proven that little Alexander was not my sons child. I had the most difficult decision to make. I could keeep fostering this child or place him some place else. By this time I had bonded with hime. He lived wit me for about 1 month after he was discharged from the hospital. I chose to place him becasue I thought for sure my son would never want to see this girl again after what she put him and our family thru ough. WRONG! I find out he still loves her and they have been in contact. I am trying to let go and let God, but it is hard. I can see a fall coming because I know he wants a life with this girl when he comes home.I know that 2 addicts can't make it. And if one falls so will the other. So I litght this candle for him. Maybe he will see the light.

Kel-my dear son.  I pray for you.  I love you so much and know this is so hard for you.  Love, Mom

My son Phill, Alcohol and drug addict, I haven't seen him in 7 years.  Dear Jesus, please take him back, I love him but you love him more.  You came back from the dead, please bring my son back too.

Jessica my 16 yr old daughter. I have been told that I am lucky (as well as she) that she is still alive for all the drugs she has used and how she used them. She is in recovery now, and am hoping she can stay strong.

My daughter Kate.  I pray this candle will help to lead you out of the darkness.  I miss you so much.

My beloved and brilliant son, Josh, who is also an alcoholic. My denial is finally at an end after 5 years, and I pray he recognizes his need for help before his addiction kills him or lands him in prison. Josh I'd give my life if I thought it would make you well again. I love you. Mom

Until then, I keep you in GOD'S hands. I hope, my love, that you have the strength to be down the path that once brought you happiness. God Bless you and keep you safe, thats all I can pray for.   I Luv U ! and I am here for you always.

Kip, My son. 44yrs. old crack addict

Nicholas Michael, my son, 20 years old
From pot and alcohol to crack and now the vicious demon of meth.  Somewhere inside is a small bit of the boy we all loved, but you've become the walking dead.  You hate us for turning our backs to you to save what is left of our family.  I grieve for you and pray everyday that you will be restored, but will no longer enable you.   I release you into God's hands.

For Joshua, let the mantle of the Christ fall around him and wrap him in peace.  Please, Father, bring him comfort and healing.
I pray that you know how much I love you, and how precious you are to this world. I feel as though I've made things worse for you. That tough love stuff really hurts.. me too. I don't want you to think I do not care. I don't know what to do to help, I am here if you ever want my help. My friendship and my love will be here for you forever. Please know that you are in my prayers, I pray that you will have the strenght to care about yourself again. I love you, Cindy

He is my cocaine addicted husband, and I pray he will find himself and his strength he needs to fight and escape the addiction.

John,crack addict, loving friend and ex-husband.  May he be touched by the grace of God, in whom all things are possible.

My daughter Jessica.  Missing for 45 days now.  You are in my heart and prayers.  I do hope you are safe and will one day find your way.  Drugs have almost taken all of you away but I do know in my heart that the Jessica I once knew is still in there somewhere. Be safe, Love Mom   xo xo xo


Love you. You will never be forgotten.
My wonderful daughter Danielle...Her brother is an addict. She has been an outstanding daughter throughout our long long long battle with Jordan's addiction

My daughter Monique,
So beautiful, when she graduated from high school. Now its been 9 years, she had her life so together.  What happened.....
Meth happned, sad, my heart aches when i see her, Detoxed her, at home about 3 monthes ago... she was clean...

My heart breaks with the pain of someone so pretty ,

You are my son and I will always love you. I must now turn you over to GOD because Methamphetamilnes prevent you from hearing my cries. I will now hand you over and let the HOLY SPIRIT reach you. I LOVE YOU.

Dan, my dear son....I pray for your healing...physical, emotional and spiritual.  Pain, drugs, disease have taken its toll.  Please gain the courage, the strength and the faith to make wise decisions and return to the loving young man I once knew.   I cannot bear to watch you suffer any more.  I beg God and whomever is compassionate enough to pray for us to please help us through this painful journey.
With all my love, Jean

My Husband...he is so lost right now, feeling great pain and guilt, as we are here waiting and worried. I pray he will see the light.

My son Johnathan, who is an addict and bi-polar and suffering/struggling terribly to understand his place in this life. Please help me pray for his recovery and acceptance of his higher power.

I am lighting this candle for my girl Amber who I pray every day for. 
We love you Amber

Justin, our oldest son, 24 years old.  Addicted to alcohol, heroin, pain killers and other drugs. He has battled this disease for 8 long years and it is not over yet.  We love him so much and pray that God will help him recover from this awful disease that is taking not only his life, but the lives of his family as well.   We all grieve for him and would do anything to take this away from him.  We want our son restored to his former happy life.  Please, God, hear our prayers and the prayers of all parents who are struggling with the daily pain of knowing that their children are in the depths of addictions.   We know there is nothing we can do, but you can.  Please hear our prayers and surround these your children with your warm and comforting embrace.  Heal their hurts and help them to fight the battles ahead of them.   Please bring angels into their lives to lead them back to the truth.

Mitch, the love of my life. 
Please find your way back to me. Please God help him get off of Heroin. 
I love you.

I miss you baby

Don B.  He is a sweet man, has been recently released from jail, recovering alcoholic and a new friend to me.  Please pray for him to receive guidance from the Holy Spirit and strength along the way to his new life.
Thank you.

To My 20 yr old son ERIC.  Where are you? Where is the Eric that laughed, and had a smile so big it was hard not to smile back, the Eric that hugged so hard so they would last, where are you? The meth has robbed us of you, and I miss you terribly. You are living on the streets, using and killing a part of yourself daily. I will always love you, I miss you so much and pray that you find the Lord to give you the strength you need to beat this. My dear sweet son, where are you?  Love Mom

Your son loves you and needs you please put that spoon down.  Ii told you you couldn't handle it, the only person suffering is Riley, you are the only one smiling. He is not.


Brandon,  addict for 5 yrs 
I love you son.  Please get well

Justin.  Our first born son who has been an alcoholic and addict for 8 years.  He has been to so many treatment facilities and in and out of jail and nothing has helped.  We love him so much and pray for God to strengthen him in his daily battle with this disease.   Nothing we do helps him.  I want to do the right thing.  He is in trouble again after being sober for 2 months - the longest time ever.  He has lost his job now and things are not looking good. He is so depressed. Please pray for our son as we pray for all who are imprisoned with this disease of addiction.

Matt~  My sweet son, aged 22, is caught in the grip of drugs, alcohol, seizures, deep depression, and anger/hate towards God.  Please pray that the right people will cross his path, that he turns back to the Lord, and that God softens his heart and heals him.   I am so scared: I see him slipping away more each day and slowly dying.  God, be near and heal our addicted loved ones and us, the ones who aren't numbed by drugs but feel acutely the anguish of this nightmare.

Jeremy B ~ a very special person to me,struggling with being a recovering alcoholic,moved away&im worried about him.i will always care jer,you are always in my heart 4ever.Angie O
