I am asking prayer for my cousin who is suffering from alcohol abuse, due to many years of arthritis pain in his back and hips. This is how he relieves the pain. He was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis at the age of 8, so he has dealt with pain his entire life, he is now 55.
We were planning to go to Church this weekend, and after chatting with him, He reached out to me asking for me to help him get the help he needs. He is now starting a journey that I pray will help him be healthy and happy again. I pray for strength, guidance and endurance for him during this time and after, and that his pain can finally be diagnosed correctly and he can get the help he needs for that also.
