Please pray for this ministry

As I was reminded in the sermon on Sunday, prayer is something to which we are called on an ongoing basis. I'm posting this blog entry asking you not for donations, but for prayer.

I am involved in ministry called Addiction Overcome. My friend, Judith Ann Hillard, recently started this as a 501(c)3 non-profit entity. Her mission is to help families and individuals who are touched by addiction in some way. Her mission statement is summed up in the following:

That the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious FREEDOM of the children of God. (Romans 8:21, NIV)

Judith's testimony is amazing. She has written her story in her book The Other Woman at the Well: A Truthful Account of Addiction Overcome. You can read more about her on her website and her blog

Addiction Overcome is launching its first holiday outreach program called "Operation Bandaid." We're calling it that because we know this is just a temporary but necessary solution to the overall disease of addiction.

Please be praying that God will magnify and multiply our efforts as we seek to provide holiday meals, gifts, and necessities to families in need. Pray also that as we share God's Word with these families and tell them of the freedom to be found in Christ, that they will truly be able to overcome their addictions. Right now our biggest hurdle is funding, but we know that God will move that mountain if only we ask. He has proven himself faithful in so many ways. We look forward to seeing what he has in store for his children as a result of this ministry.

Thank you for your prayers. Please be sure to check out the website and blog. I'd be more than happy to answer any questions you may have about Judith or Addiction Overcome.
