I'm asking for prayer for my brother. He is my little brother, but he is a grown man. He's struggled w/ addiction over the years. He recenlty went through a medical procedure that was pretty severe, and he had to be put on pain killers. He overdosed on them, most likely to get a "high". My parents got him home and then he overdosed again. He said he had taken 40-50 pills! They took him to the hospital and he is now being sent to an In-house care facility, unsure how long, most likely not long enough to really help. I've TRIED to get him to go to Teen Challenge, but he thinks since on occation; he can stop drinking, that he's ok, he doesn't SEE the problem w/ drinking. He has passed out in the street driving before. I feel if he does not get help, he will eventually end up dead, whether it be an overdose, fighting, or a car wreck. My brother suffers from low self esteem, as I do, and most likely depression also. I'm not totally sure of his beliefs. He seems to believe in a higher power, but I'm not exactly sure if he believes in God or what. I know he's NOT a Chrisitan, not living a Christian lifestyle.
Please pray for my lil bro, that he will come to realize this is very serious and could kill him, and that HE IS WORTH IT . He is also VERY smart, but has never gone anywhere w/ his life, pretty much dead end jobs, prob. due to being stuck in a long relationship that was also wrong for him and just not believing in himself.
Thanks so much!
