Prayer for 1 John 5:4 ►
“because whatever has been born of God conquers the world. This is the victory that has conquered the world: our faith.”
Father God, I know that the life-path I am treading is fraught with difficulties and problems but Lord I trust You to lead and guide me through the maze of life, because You have promised to be with me to lead and to guide – to strengthen and to help.
Let me never lose sight of who I am in Christ and help me to trust You in all things, knowing that I am Your child and that greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world.
Thank You that You are my Shepherd Who has promised to lead and to guide.. to protect and to uphold. Thank You that you are my Defence and my Defender and that You have promised to be my ever-present help in those times of unexpected difficulties and trials.
Thank You Lord, that You remain faithful and dependable, even when I stray from the path that You have graciously laid out for me. May I never forget that You are my firm Anchor and the steady Rock upon which I stand, and that no difficulty in life is to great that You cannot overcome – thank You 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 so 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…

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.
