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.

Oh Lord Jesus, how difficult life has become due to my husbands excessive drinking of alcohol – well it is now really become alcohol addition. 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 where 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 time 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,
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,
Heavenly Father, thank You for the freedom I have in Christ and that He died to pay the price for all my sin. Thank You that I am not under any form of law but under grace, and that because Christ identified with my sin, I am identified with His perfect, righteousness, and have been declared blameless through faith in Him. Keep me from sin, I pray, and give me wisdom to recognise things that are permissible, but which are not expedient, and help me to live my life in a way that honours You. Thank You that in Christ, all things are lawful unto me, but I pray that I will not cause another to stumble or backslide in my own Christian life. This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.Source: Verse of the day for 1 Corinthians 6:12
