I am in desperate need of prayers. My boyfriend of almost 2 years has fallen into a shall we say, "unhealthy lifestyle." There are some people who wish to kill him. I am a strong believer in prayer in numbers can bring about great miracles, that is why I am appealing to everyone I can. His name is Charles and I ask you to keep him in your prayers along with the men who wish to do him harm. Pray that God can fill these men's souls who wish to kill my boyfriend and make them choose another path. Thank you. frown

I'm with MBM. I'm sorry you and Charles are going through this. My prayers are with you.

Anything you can share about the situation? Anything AA.org can do to help? Even if it's only some additional perspective, I'm sure you'll get lots of love here.
It has to deal with drugs and money. frown He lost his job recently and felt that he needed to sell drugs until he can find a real job. He is really smart, but he don't apply himself with positive things. I think after this and other things he is starting to come around to seeing that he needs to stop. I love him, but I don't know if I can deal with this much longer. I don't want to turn my back on him, but I can't be dealing with the fact I might get that phone call when he dead! frown Yeah I'll let you know what happens.

@ Lea I read Psalms 140 thanks for that, that is exactly what I need to read right now. When I see my boyfriend I will have to pass it on to him. I pray alot but he doesn't really. It seems like the only time I notice him praying is when things go wrong, he needs to understand to pray when things are going good to. But thanks for ya'll thoughts. smile frown

mspretty-certainly will be sending some good energy your way.

forgive me for going here, i mean no ill will by it, however, please make sure you are exercising concern as well for YOUR health and safety. we all know how easy it is to be caught up in drama when it concerns someone we love. people who are involved in questionable activity often don't consider who else they have to hurt in order to get at the person they seek to destroy or advance their goals.

so please, please, please, sister to sister, from the bottom of my heart, protect yourself.

prettygurl,
from your previous post you seem quite intelligent. Now the hard line.. I grew up in Chicago running with the brothers of one of the biggest drug family in the city. To make a long story short, my prom date body was tossed on my parents lawn like garbage and I haven't been to Chicago in almost 21 years (well I did go in briefly for 2 days in 1995 but thats all I was allowed was 2 days for a funeral), and recall all I did was run with these brothers. I wasn't directly involved. What I am forever cut off from my family and I have to live with the fact that my parents and siblings are 20 years older from the last time I really saw them. I had a nephew who was born, growing up crossed the wrong side of the tracks and was found with his hands, legs and head cut off, without my ever getting to know him other than those 2 days I got to talk with him in the city. He was 19 years old at the time of his death. Maybe where you are from they do things a lil bit slower, but in the big city you catch a rat by weeding out his possible hideouts and you would/should easily consider yourself a potential victim of a violent crime in order to get at him. You should be asking for prayers for yourself and the many victims whom he has sold his drugs to instead of trying to save a hopeless case. Because in time we all pay for our actions. So my prayer (if I really have any) goes out to you sweetie. Tell me what you think
@ Brother of the night-u asked me what I think. First off I amtruely sorry for what you have been put through in your life, after reading what has happened to you, my situation feels somewhat silly!I will say a prayer for you also. Well what you said was the real truth, but I will have to disagree with you in one point you said- you said something like stop trying to save a hopeless case. I do not feel that he is in anyway "a hopless case." I feel he is still one of God's children, God still loves him, God still has a road planned for his life-he just has happened to go down the opposite road,but there is no reason he can't be put onto the right path. I don't believe anyone is totally hopeless or any situaion is completely hopless.There's always hope, people change, but they got to want to change! But I do agree with having to pray for myself and the victims of the drugs he is selling-that truely is tearing our people down. frown But at the same time when you truely love someone you can't just turn your back on them, but I do know that sometimes when you really love someone you might have to let them go. Overall I thank you for you comments-eventhough I disagreed with you about the whole hopeless case thing, I appreciate your opinion none the less! Thanks smile

you are quite welcome my sistah. And I hope the situation gets better, before it get worst. Its good that you don't give up on the brother, but if you don't see any progress immediately, perhaps you should rethink that whole situation, and that is why I use the term "hopeless". The dope game is a fast pace style and when you snooze you lose. No doubt. It also unfortunately yield many temptations that keep brothers and sistahs from walking away from it, especially when they haven't gotten their piece of the pie yet (as most mules haven't). The big fancy house, the cars, the women (oh yeah you better believe there is no reason to have "a" woman when the world is yours). And you care less and less about or for the people you are hurting around you, including your victims and your families. As your money grows in this game so does the stakes and the propencity to act violently. So you be careful sistah and watch how this guy carries himself day to day. We usually don't just walk away from the game, its usually six of our friends who help us walk away roll eyes. Tell me what you think
But I do see him changing. He is not like the rest of the drug dealing men and boys that live in his neighborhood, he is so smart. He wants to change, he has told me that much. He sees what it can do to his family, you know somebody might take it out on his family instead of on him-so he really does want to change for them. He says he wants to get rid of the stuff he has now and then give up that life. He has told me that it is going to be hard to give up the fast money good life, but he has seen it first hand how it can totally destroy a person and all the people around him so for that he wants to stop. He has told me that it is not even worth the money to possibly get his family hurt or me for being with him. SO I think he will get out of it. Actually he hasn't been "on the block" all week, we went away for a couple of days-so he is starting to wake up-at least I think he is. roll eyes

its all good sistah. I'm not judging anyone, I am simply stating what I know through my experiences with the fast life. Actions speak louder than words, and he is saying a lot right now. But I am curious, how does he plan on "getting rid" of the stuff he has now? By dumping it, flushing it, or selling it and turning a profit yet destroying another lost soul? Please don't get the wrong impression of me because I am not "holy than thou". In fact the only "holy than thou" person to have walked this earth was Jesus Christ or so I am told, and he still got his britches nailed to a cross. So by no means am I being judgmental. You take care sis and just update the board if you feel like it about his progress. I am sure many of the readers would like to know if he makes it.
No I don't have a bad impression of you. You have very strong opionions, but you seem like a positive brother none the less. Yeah I will do a update in a couple of months.
