Victims of Addiction

The following prayer is from my discernment committee homework. In light of all who struggle with addictions and for all those who love & care for them I offer this collect.....

Collect for the Victims of Addiction

O blessed Lord, you ministered to all who came to you;
Look with compassion upon all who through addiction have lost their health
and freedom. Restore to them the assurance of your unfailing mercy;
remove from them the fears that beset them; strengthen them in the work of their recovery; and to those who care for them, give patient understanding & persevering love. Amen BCP 831
