A Prayer for Dealing with and Overcoming Addictions
HEAVENLY FATHER, we come before You in total surrender to Your Will because we are weary of the addictions we face. We do not mean to fail You, Merciful Father, but too often we give in to the temptations of the enemy as he entangle us and weigh us down. Help us, Lord, to exercise self-discipline so we will not be defeated anymore. We will continue to believe that Your love and GRACE will never fail us and Your mercies will endure forever.
Titus 2:11-14 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.
As we struggle in our various addictions, whether it be in the form of alcohol, drugs, or any other type, we know that we have already been healed by Jesus. Help us to believe and place our complete trust in Him. We claim freedom and healing as we cling to You, Lord Jesus. We declare that these addictions will not destroy our families or cause further suffering. You are our Comforter and Rock in these difficult times.
Romans 13:14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.
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.
We look to You, Jesus because we cannot free ourselves from dealing with and overcoming addictions in our own strength. Because of You, Abba Father, we can build a strong foundation on which to stand. We declare DELIVERANCE from the control of all addictions! In Jesus’ mighty name, we claim our victory, Amen!
