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 and come to a saving faith Jesus Christ.. Who died and rose again so that the power of sin and bondage to all forms of addiction might become ineffective in the lives that is focused on the Lord Jesus.
We lift up all those that 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 – and may all come to a saving faith in Jesus and begin to enjoy a close walk with Him, in Jesus name we pray,
Heavenly Father, thank You for Jesus, and His sacrificial work on the cross. Thank You that He has already overcome the world.. and that by faith in Him, I too am an overcomer. Thank You that I have been born of the Spirit and have been clothed in His righteousness, and thank You that I am accepted in Christ. May I submit my life to You entirely, and live each day in spirit and truth, to Your praise and glory - this I ask in Jesus name. AMEN.Source: Verse of the day for 1 John 5:4
