Please pray for someone who is suffering from the memories of a war, and struggling with drinking. As a Soldier I never want to quit, never give up, but sometimes I need a Battle Buddy to help me cope. Over the last few months the pit of depression has gotten deep -- but I was reassured that no matter how deep the pit, God will reach down and scoop me up. Many of us suffer from a pain or illness that can be seen....some of us suffer from indescribable pain that cannot be seen. We can never erase the horrible memories...but we could use the help of prayer to find ways to deal with it. St. Michael, pray for us.
