Many of us who are working on recovery from addictions have been helping each other here in MyLot. I am not real religious but I respect anything that will help me in my recovery process. I don't know where I originally found this list of emergency numbers. Recently, while cleaning the house, I ran across the list. Here it is for you. I felt a need to share this with you. I hope you like it. Do you have this list?? Emergency Help Numbers (author unknown) When in sorrow, John 14 When men fail you, Psalm 27 If you want to be fruitful, John 15 When you have sinned, Psalm 51 When you worry, Matthew 6:19-34 When you are in danger, Psalm 91 When God seems far away, Psalm 139 When your faith needs stirring, Hebrews 11 When you are lonely and fearful, Psalm 23 When you grow bitter and critical, I. Corinthians 13 For Paul's secret to happiness, Colossians 3:12-17 For understanding of Christianity, II. Corinthians 5:15-19 When you feel down and out, Romans 8:31 When you want peace and rest, Matthew 11:25-30 When the world seems bigger than God, Psalm 90 When you want Christian assurance, Romans 8:1-30 When you leave home for labor or travel, Psalm 121 When your prayers grow narrow and selfish, Psalm 67 For a great invention/opportunity, Isaiah 55 When you want courage for a task, Joshua 1 How to get along with fellow men, Romans 12 When you think of investments and returns, Mark 10 If you are depressed, Psalm 27 If your pocketbook is empty, Psalm 37 If you are losing confidence in people, I.

Wow! It's been a very very long time since I've seen that list. It was provided to me when I was a young teenager and I was attending a certain place that was there to assist me to deal with a particular environment at the time. Religious or otherwise, people can gain tremendous solace from the passages in that list.

It is a good list. I have had it for a long time. The paper it is written on is so old it is yellowing. You are welcome to copy it and make yourself a new copy.

Thanks, I may just do that! As I said before, it's been a while since I've seen this list, so a recap could be of benefit!

Yes, I have seen this list before published in the back of an old Bible.. But I do not remember which Bible.. As I used to read numerous of them as well as other spiritual scriptures in my studies. - DNatureofDTrain

That is very interesting. Maybe I should go look in the back of my bible. It is nice to know others have seen this list. I have always wondered where it originated from. I don't know who the author is so I did not know if it was in a book or a pamphlet or what. thank you.
