Sometimes we pray for long periods of time and think that God isn’t paying attention. That’s when we need to pray even harder without ceasing. I have a family member that is drinking themselves to death. Witnessing this day and night gets exhausting and can leave a dent in your prayer life if you let it. I find that praying for people with addictions is the hardest, because they need to hit a rock bottom before they can quit. It takes a lot of time sometimes before prayers can be answered, but just hold tight. God has a plan and reason why this is happening. Heavenly Father, please help to give us the strength and understanding to continue praying for our fallen friends and family. In Jesus name amen.
