The Drink

He tells me

“The Drink” has taken over my life

Years of his own praying

did not end the habit.

He continues

I was fighting “The Drink” when we met

He asked me to pray for him

Ministers I confided in have prayed for me

This will sound strange

I hope you will understand

God directed me to call you tonight for prayer

Please keep me in your prayers each day

I think God plans to use you to help me

Give up the drink.

We finished talking about the past year

his is very successful

We joked and laughed

he has a great sense of humor

As we ended our conversation

He prayed for me and I prayed for him


Please deliver my friend

from “The Drink”

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
