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 confess that I have not only hurt other people, and especially those that are close to me – but I have offended You and ignored some of the warnings that I believe were directly or indirectly sent from You. Help me I pray to break free of this ungodly addiction and get on the road to recovery.
Forgive me Lord I pray me for I have sinned against You and ignored the clear teaching of Your Word to live soberly, righteously and in the fear of the Lord and to walk circumspectly before You, as a child of the light. But I come to You in humble submission to ask You to help me to get on the road to addiction recovery, for I know that You have promised to lift-up all who come to You out of the miry pit – even when we have foolishly dug it for ourselves.
Help me be set free from alcohol.. putting on the breastplate of righteousness, and grace, and for helmet – the hope of salvation in Christ , in Whose name I pray,
Dear heavenly Father, thank You for Jesus Who understands what it is like to be tempted in life. Thank You that He is able to sympathise with all our weaknesses. Thank You that there is no temptation that I have to face that is not common to the human race.. and thank You that You have promised to provide a way of escape, by grace through faith in Christ.. when trial come my way. AMEN.Source: Verse of the day for 1 Corinthians 10:13
Dear Lord, how I thank You for Your grace towards me for you have lifted me up out of the pit that my life was in and set my feet on the rock of my Salvation, which is Jesus Christ my Lord and Saviour. Thank You for freeing me from the shame and sin of my addiction, which has robbed me of so many of years of my life and caused me to lose not only my home but many of my friends and family as well.
Lord Jesus there are those that would seek to entice me back into the shadow from which I escaped and are trying to almost blackmail me into returning back to my life of crime and debauchery – but I have been set free and I do not want to return – keep me from temptation on those occasions when I feel alone and protect me from the pressures that I have been put under on certain occasions to return.
Lord I know that ALL my past sins have been forgiven and that I am clothed in the righteousness of Christ Jesus – keep me walking in the path of holiness and protect me from those that are still slaves to their addictions – I pray Lord that You will rescue those of my friends that are still enthralled in the world of addiction – I ask this in Jesus name.
