Kind and merciful Father, I come before You, pouring my burdens at Your side. I am overwhelmed. I am emotionally and physically weak because of my situation. Finally, I have no one to turn to, except to the God who delivers.
My spiritual life has faded because I can’t see beyond my trials. But You, oh God, knows my beginning and my end. You have great plans for me, and not any that will cause harm.
1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.
Struggling with alcoholism
God, I am struggling with alcoholism. I am battling with the addiction of drinking continuously and it is affecting my life, my family, my work and my relationships. Lord, it is so difficult to stop. And, as much as I want to change, I feel this tie holding me back. Every time I make one step away from alcohol, I go a couple steps backwards.
James 4:7 Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
Tired of hurting my loved ones
My God, I am tired of hurting the people around me and I hate making havoc in the lives of others. I have caused enough emotional and physical damage and I want to change.
Lord, I am sorry for drinking of that ungodly spirit when I should have turned to the spirit of God. I am sorry for being distracted and carried away by alcohol, even to the point where I forgot who my eyes should be upon: Jesus.
I confess that I have fall short of your glory, and I plead the blood of Jesus over my life so that I shall be set free. With humbleness and sincerity, I repent of all iniquities and I choose life over death this day: I choose Jesus over alcohol. I pledge to make a change God and I need Your help because I can’t do this on my own.
Romans 13:14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.
Heavenly Father, I don’t want to be an alcoholic any more, but I want to be a faithful servant of God. Lord, I ask that You would hear my supplication and guide my steps away from alcohol. I believe and I trust in You for my breakthrough and I know it is already done.
I proclaim my deliverance. No devil shall have his way in me anymore. I decree and declare that I am no longer an alcoholic. I am a child covered under the blood of Jesus who will follow his ways. Amen.
