Prayer For Drug Addicted Child
I lift up my daughter in prayer.
You are the God of Miracles.
You are the God of Victories.
You are the God of Freedom.
You are the God who creates Overcomers.
You are the God who creates Champions for Christ.
You have everything my child needs
to overcome this addiction
turn her life around.
Put freedom and victory into her heart.
Stir up hope in her.
Show her how to receive
How to stand strong!
Do miracles, Lord.
I pray in Jesus' name,
I lift up my child to you in prayer.
Awaken my child to your Love and your Power.
I fervently pray that today my child would come to the end of his/her wayward journey of addiction and begin to run to you.
Do miracles, Lord.
In Jesus' name I pray,
Father, Praise You for miracles, and Your perfect timing to bring them into our lives. The winter is bitter cold and brown day after day until suddenly, one warm day ushers in a thaw. Watching someone we love succumb to the grip of addiction wraps our hearts in an icy chill. Suddenly, we become closed to anything other than panic and reaction, worry and blame, solution and force. But, that is not Your way.
Father, You love us in a perfect way, even in the middle of our mess. And in the middle of our children's messes,You love them perfectly, too. Thank You for the evidence of Your miraculous power through Jesus' life. He reminded us that He came to do Your work, and that You are always at Your work. That includes our children their addictions their demons their mistakes and their sicknesses.
Thank You for loving our kids beyond our capacity.
When we can't see what's happening in our children's lives, we can rejoice because You hold them in Your hands. Their journey with You is as unique as they are. Thank You for the individual way Jesus comes after each unique human heart.
Forgive us for falling into cycles of blame, remorse, regret, control, sadness, and anger. We confess that the first reaction we have is not always to equip our minds with Your truth and cry out to You in prayer, truly trusting that You hear us in those moments. Forgive us for putting too much pressure on ourselves as parents, or for any stray paths we led our children down. Forgive us for wanting to shelter and bubble our precious babies.
Help us to remember that the manipulation of substance-influenced brain is beyond practicality before attempting to speak reason into it. Remind us that the disease of addiction can be healed. Place an army of people qualified and educated specifically in this battle to help our children out of the hole. Help us to seek them, seek their counsel, and help our children to connect with them. Help us to have compassion on our children as they suffer, without enabling them to sink back into the hole. Surround us with a circle of qualified and godly people to guide us on how to execute life with addiction so near and penetrating.
Father we pray specifically for our child's physical health, mental health, safety, shelter, employment, and dependance on You. Bless us with a released grip on control, send Your Spirit to strengthen us to surrender worry and control. God, You are bigger. You are in control. You are love. You sent Jesus down to earth and after our hearts to call out the demons, heal disease, and claim His Father's children leaving not one behind. Father, we pray, in the name of Jesus, Your perfect Son who died for Your will to be done, for miraculous healing in our children's' lives and freedom from the demon of addiction. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
Dear Father in Heaven,
I come to you today to thank you for the blessing of my son. I love him so very much, and it's through my pain and inability to conquer his addiction that I lay myself at your feet.
Please forgive me for not recognizing or seeing the signs of his drug problem beginning.
Forgive me for the guilt that has enveloped me.
I can't help but feel that I have failed as a parent in some way.
Lord, only you know my son's heart and the reason behind his addiction.
I pray for a heavy conviction upon his heart. Give him eyes to fully see his situation and the will to overcome.
Please don't let the evil one have victory over his physical body nor his mind.
Please help each of my family members to find the strength to support my son in prayer while encouraging him with uplifting words.
Help each of us to fully love him and forgive us when we give way to blame, fear, worry, and anger.
We know these things are not Godly.
Fill us with love, compassion, forgiveness, and most of all, faith in your miraculous healing.
Your timing is perfect, and we trust in your plan for our son.
Help us to have patience in that timing and to know that even though we are in the middle of a mess, you are here with us.
Father, I pray that you protect every part of my son's body and mind. Please wash through his entire body with your cleansing power and flush the drugs out.
Cleanse his mind of any desire to feed his addiction and pull him up, and out of this darkness, he is in. Help him to feel your firm hand wrapped around his.
I pray that you will prevent him from succumbing to remorse, anger, and blame. Equip his heart to trust you.
As the addiction releases its control over him, please send your Spirit to strengthen him.
Guide us, Lord, as we travel this unknown path that is before us. You are in control, Lord, and we trust you. I pray these things in Jesus' name, Amen.
Lord Jesus, what started as fun for my son has turned into an addiction. He has tried everything to stop using drugs, but nothing is working. Lord, you came to proclaim freedom for the captives and to release prisoners from darkness, my son is desperate to stop being an addict. O Jesus, please remove my son from darkness, and proclaim freedom over his life. May he start living in the freedom that is found in your Son, Jesus. Thank you for answering my prayers. Amen.
Almighty God, my son, is so ashamed of himself for becoming a drug addict. He has a deep desire to stop using drugs, but he keeps going back to his addiction. Father God, help him. Holy Spirit, remind him that he's no longer under condemnation because Jesus has paid for his addiction at the cross. When the enemy reminds him of his failure, tell him of your love towards him. In Jesus's name, I believe and pray. Amen.
Father in the name of Jesus I believe that my child will be delivered from the spirit of drugs and alcohol. According to your Word I confess and believe that my child is free from the bondage of drugs and alcohol. Thank you that you are bringing my child back from the land of the enemy and that they will be in their right mind and sound in body. I thank you that my child is whole and redeemed from every evil work and that they have complete control over their body. I believe that my child is set free and delivered because I have called upon the name of the Lord. Keep me in perfect peace as I wait for my appointed time with my child.In Jesus name Amen.
Lord, I bring my child to You with such a heavy heart, knowing that the precious child You blessed me with has become caught up with drugs and their life is spiralling out of control. Help us Lord I pray, to know what to do, and show us how we can help to stem and to stop these drug-related activities.
Wherever the blame for this situation lies, I pray Lord, that You would help us to address it so that our child is able to be freed from this drug-related trap. I pray in the name of Jesus that You would step into this situation and whatever it takes, I pray that You would convict our child of the need to call out to You for help, for You alone have the power to help and heal their life.
Give me the strength I pray to support my child, in prayer or therapy or any other way so that they may be enabled to leave this drug-related past behind, and step out into the future having been freed from this bondage. And help me to trust in Your many precious promises and not lean on my own understanding. This I ask in Jesus' name,
