    (Prayer request for those in despair)
    My brother’s wife died last November. He was outsourced from IBM after 25 years and had to care for her with no health insurance and no income. He finally had a nervous breakdown himself. Now that she is gone, he is consumed with grief. He has a social phobia disorder and has started drinking. Our mother just died in January. My sister is working to support both my brother and me. None of us is getting any younger (I’m 59). I just don’t know what to do for my brother except to pray and try to console him and keep him from drinking. There must be many people like me (and my brother) who are in despair. I am recovering myself from 3 years of a medication withdrawal and nearly lost my own faith because of it. I am still trying everything I can for my brother but I feel so hopeless. Our father was an alcoholic and for years I prayed for him to stop drinking. He eventually did but it was too late then. If Dr. Perry could pray at least once for my brother and for people like him I would be so relieved. I have trouble getting to church here in town because I have no car and can’t ride the bus. I will keep praying on this end, it seems like the the most powerful thing to do.
