Prayer For Drug Addict
May my heart be gentle
My mind still and open
My spirit unshackled
My awareness keen
My conscience clear
My nature giving
May I be a healing energy
May I be of benefit to all
May my life enrich others
May i know what matters
And live in harmony with nature
I cleanse myself of all
selfishness, resentment, critical feelings for my fellow beings, self-condemnation,
and misinterpretation of my life experiences.
I bathe myself in generosity, appreciation, praise and gratitude for my fellow beings,
self-acceptance, and enlightened understanding of my life experiences
In the comfort of your love, I lay before you
the memories that haunt me,
the anxieties that perplex me,
the despair that frightens me,
and my frustration at my inability to think clearly.
Help me to discover your forgiveness in my memories and know your peace in my distress.
Touch me, [O Lord], and fill me with your light and your hope.
Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial,
for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life,
which God has promised to those who love him.
Let no one say when he is tempted,
I am being tempted by God,
for God cannot be tempted with evil, and He himself tempts no one.
But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire.
Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death.
Dear [Lord], I ask you to turn this weakness into strength,
this suffering into compassion,
sorrow into joy,
and pain into comfort for others.
May I trust in your goodness and hope in your faithfulness,
even in the middle of this struggle.
Fill me with patience and joy in your presence as I breathe in your healing life.
Dear Lord, You are a loving God and we praise and thank You for all Your goodness to us and to all men. We bless You for our lives and for all the joy and grace that You so readily bestow on all Your creation.
But Lord, we lift up an increasing number of men and women who suffer from drug addiction, and pray that You would provide them with the grace and strength to reach out to You for the necessary help and guidance that they may need, as they take the important steps to recovering their physical, emotional and spiritual health.
Give those that are addicted to drugs the will, perseverance, courage and ability to take the first step to regain their health and wholeness. Comfort and strengthen friends and family members that are affected by those that are trapped in drug addiction.
Give courage and hope to all who are seeking to break its demonic hold over the lives of so many, and may the power of Your love and grace transform their lives, knowing that Jesus Christ alone is able to break the power of drugs, return a soul into freedom and bring beauty for brokenness. This we ask in Jesus' name,
Oh Lord, I come to You to pray for all who are weighed down with some form of addition. Lord, You are the One Who came to set the captives free and to release the sinners from the chains that bind them. So I lift before Your throne of grace all those that have become addicted to drugs.
Lord, I know some personally and others that I know nothing about, but You know everyone that is enchained by the curse of drug-addiction. Look with compassion on all that are ensnared by any form of addiction, and send help and freedom to all who would accept help. Lord, I pray that they may be released from this imprisonment and returned to a life that has dignity and meaning.
Give wisdom to their family members and those that care from them, that they may be given the support and help to put them back on the road to recovery. Endow them with patience, understanding and perseverance, knowing that this can take time to address.
More than anything Lord, I pray for their salvation. You died for every drug addict and it was Your love for them that caused You to die on the cross of shame that they might be lifted up and seated with Christ in heavenly places. Save them Lord, in Jesus' name I pray,
Heavenly Father, You are our God and Maker, and I cry out to You in desperation to ask that You would help those who are trapped in the destructive web of drug addiction. I pray that in Your grace and mercy, You would help and heal all who are affected by this dependency upon drugs or medication.
Reach out Your strong arm to lift them out of the miry clay I pray. Release them from the trap into which they have become ensnared. Draw them into the arms of Jesus, and convict them of their need for Him.
Comfort all those that have loved ones who have become drug addicts and all who have been adversely affected by drug addiction, especially parents and spouses, children and those whose life has been negatively affected by this debilitating and destructive habit.
Lord, in Your grace I hand each and every one over to You, and ask that in Your pity and mercy You would heal all who have become addicted to drugs. In Jesus' name,
