Prayer For An Alcoholic
Oh Lord Jesus, how difficult life has become due to my husbands excessive drinking of alcohol, well it is now really become alcohol addiction. Life has become so hard, almost unbearable, and his temper is at times out of control, and Lord, I am beginning to fear for our safety.
Lord, You know that this is splitting our family apart and at times I despair that this addiction to alcohol will ever be overcome. Lord, it has not only affected his moods and his increasingly uncaring attitude toward me, but it is affecting his work and I am wondering if he may actually lose his job as a result of this.
Father, it is painful to see someone You love in this pitiful state and I pray for Your guidance and strength to be able to deal with this in a way that honours You, but also for the wisdom to know what to do and how to help my husband.
Lord, I know that it may be a dangerous prayer to pray, but I ask that whatever it takes You would bring my husband to the point of desperation, where You are the only Person to Whom he can turn, as I know that only You can intervene in this addiction and return him to his normal mind.
Father, at times I feel weak and unable to cope and yet I know that Your strength is made perfect in our weakness. Lord, I know that Your grace is sufficient for me and ask that You would remain close to me, to lead and to guide, so that I would know what to do to help him overcome his alcohol addition and encourage him to turn to Jesus, in Whose name I pray,
Lord Jesus, I put myself into Your hands this day. I ask You with all my heart to cure the terrible addiction to alcohol in (name the person).
Create in them an intolerance for alcohol that will prevent them from ever offending those who love them again.
And grant their loved ones the grace to forgive them for all the hurt they have caused.
Through the Divine Mercy and Blood of Jesus, I also pray that they will be healed of all withdrawal symptoms of this terrible affliction.
I sincerely ask this, in the Name of Jesus. Amen.
Heavenly Father, I pray for every alcoholic that their lives shall be recovered, in Jesus' Name. We declare and stand against the spirit of torment that is operating in their lives, tempting them to live a life of alcoholism. Father, I plead on their behalf because Your Word says, envy, drunkenness, orgies and things like these; those who do such things will not inherit the Kingdom of God. We ask for repentant hearts so that they shall see the Kingdom of God. Amen.
Oh Lord, we thank You for life, but often times the cares of this world cause us to turn away from You and turn to drugs, alcohol and sexual immorality. But from today, we speak life over every alcoholic; we declare that they shall not die, but they will live and declare the works of the Lord. You give power to the weak; they shall not grow weary or utterly fall. Your Word stands forever. Amen.
Dear Lord, we come to You on behalf of those who are suffering due to alcohol abuse. Father, Your Word tells us that we should live soberly, righteously and godly in this present age. God, I therefore come to You on behalf of those who are suffering due to alcohol abuse. We ask that they break free from their addiction and come to know and experience Your Love, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
Father, I confess that I have allowed myself to become addicted to alcohol, and it is to my shame and sadness that my life is simply spiralling out of control. Lord, I know that in and of myself I am not able to break free of this destructive habit and ask that in Your grace and mercy You would help me to be set free of this ungodly addiction. I ask this simple, yet difficult prayer in the name of Jesus,
Dear Lord Jesus, we come to You in deep pain and sadness for those we know who are suffering in one way of another due to alcohol abuse. Both those that have been ensnared in their own excessive alcohol addiction and also those that are badly affected by the alcoholic abuse of someone else, a spouse, a parent, a child or a friend.
We know that You love and care for each and every addict and desire that they break free from their addiction. Remind them that Jesus died and rose again so that the power of sin and bondage to all forms of addiction might become ineffective in the life that is focused on the Lord Jesus.
We lift up all those we know who are suffering in any way, due to alcoholic abuse and addiction, especially those that we know personally, and pray that in Your grace and mercy You would do a great work in their lives, enabling those in bondage to break free of their debilitating addiction and those affected by the alcoholism of others to be kept our of harms way. May all come to a saving faith in Jesus and begin to enjoy a close walk with Him. In Jesus' name,
Dear Father God, in a world where many people are struggling to overcome the curse of alcoholic addiction, we lift up all those that have been ensnared by this ungodly dependence on drink, which has too often been the root cause of many ruined lives and numerous dysfunctional families.
We pray that in Your grace and pity You would come alongside these alcoholic sufferers who have this serious dependency on alcohol and ask that You would create in them a dislike anddistainfor all forms of alcoholic drinks
Lord, You died for each one on the cross for each one is lost and en-route for eternal separation from You, if they do not turn away from their dependency on drink to depend on Christ as Saviour andLordwe know that in Your power and strength You have all that is needed for each and every sufferer to be set free from this alcoholic dependency.
We pray that in Your grace You would draw many out of this slavery to drink and give them new dependency - trust in Jesus, Who died for all who would believe on His name.. and in Whose name we pray,
