Hope Over Heroin – Awareness

February 29, 2016

Written by Kiko Schulz

Many have seen Hope Over Heroin’s ministry on the stage and at the altars, however ministry continues year round and behind the scenes.  We are blessed to receive countless stories of lives changed and impacted by the power of our God who is able to set us free from any addiction or stronghold keeping us from living the life God designed us to live.  It is this Presence and Power that keeps HOH staff and associates pursuing cities and individuals struggling to be free from this horrific epidemic.  It is our heart and passion to find those that others have given up on and tell them, “God is real!  God cares!  He sees all.  He knows all. And, most of all, He desires and is willing to heal us and set us free!”

We at HOH realize the struggle is real.  As we continue to move from one city to another, we still recognize that people struggle everywhere, everyday.  We are grateful when people reach out for help.  This tells us there is still HOPE!  We believe that inside of every addict–no matter how far gone they seem–there is still a place longing for freedom.  That is why HOH’s ministry does not stop on the stage or at the altar.  We welcome stories of freedom, but also encourage people to reach out when they need help.  Listen to T.P.’s request below, the response from HOH’s staff, and how immediately God worked on T.P.’s behalf:

T.P. from AR writes, “Please pray for me.  I just moved down south from Chicago, IL area…I’ve been strung out on opiates for almost 10 years…I came into the Methadone clinic, but can’t come up with funds or get into a detox etc, and feel the ONLY way out is suicide!  I’ve NEVER felt this helpless & hopeless!

Our HOH staff replied,  “Don’t do anything [drastic].  I am praying for you now.  Father, I come to you right now in Jesus’ name, and I ask that you would protect T.P. and help him, Lord.  I ask that you would take away every withdrawal symptom from him right now in Jesus’ name. I also ask that you would help lead and guide him to the place where he can get the help that he needs.  In Jesus’ name I pray! Amen!”

Within hours T.P. responded, “How GOD can make such a difference! AS I have been enduring this fiery, red-hot trial, I have been watching Christian…TV here in AR.  There came a time last night that the Spirit of God put faith and HOPE within my heart!!  His Presence filled the small bedroom I’m in!  And His LOVE has broken through my hardness of heart, anger, hatred, etc!  I THANK you so much for your intercession! And the fact that you simply care!  Please add me to as many prayer lists as you can!  I have a wife and 4 young children!  T.P.”

This is why HOH exists!  We have seen time and time again the Power and Presence of our God break through the fog of addiction and set people free!  It is stories and testimonies like this that fuel our passion to go into all the world and see all captives set free!  Join with us in praying for T.P and all the thousands upon thousands of people with stories like his!  Become a partner with HOH and help us spread the GOOD news that God is real, God is more powerful than any addiction, and God cares!
