Default Please Pray for Strength

A couple weeks ago my good friend Clinton was involved in a head on collision where he was completely in the wrong. There is no excuse for what he did, period. He has screwed his life up to the point where Iím worried about him hurting himself instead of owning up to the consequences. He has been my hunting and fishing buddy for 7 years, but in that time his drinking has gotten out of hand. So much so that we had an intervention a week before his accident. He didnít speak to me again until I walked into his hospital room to visit him.

The two passengers in the other vehicle were both seriously hurt. They deserve the majority of the prayers for healing and a hopefully make a complete recovery. One was a child, which makes the situation all the worse.

I know Iím going to lose my friend for a period of time, but please pray for strength that he faces the consequences instead of doing the unthinkable. He really does not have much going for him right now and could use the prayers

Man, this is tough for you and him. I can only imagine the conflict you have and I admire your resolve to be his friend and help him.

Prayers for strength for you and him. May he find the love of Jesus Christ.

Prayers up for all. I heard this the other day and believe it may help him.....ther is a reason the windshield is so big and the rearview mirror is so small-where you are heading is a heck of a lot more important than where you have been.

I hate to hear this. He's lucky he didn't kill someone. He deserves whatever he gets, though.

Been down that road and understand. I pulled a buddy out of his rolled F250 and took him to his parents. His dad wasnt happy and told me to take him someplace else.

His dad took his own life years later. That made the drinking worse. Several of us on many occasions tried to talk to him and he quit associating with us.

Prayer up. It seems like it’s harder and harder for people to own up to their decisions.
Healing for all involved is the priority

I agree, his own actions and decisions put him in this position. All of his friends understand that he deserves what he gets, but none of us want to see him take his own life.

If he didn’t kill anyone I can’t see him staying in jail that long. I worked with a man that went out drinking with his best friend. Both were intoxicated. My co worker was driving when they crashed and killed his friend. He got four years for intoxication manslaughter He did all four though.

Prayers to those harmed and they're families for healing and comfort. Also praying that his demons are conquered and for you that your friendship will help him through this.
