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,
Loving Father, I am overwhelmed by Your kindness and grace, that has called me to share in your heavenly glory through Christ Jesus my Lord. I pray that I may walk worthy of You and not shrinking from the fiery trial of life, but that through them I will be firmly established in the faith and strengthened in Your Word, with my feet firmly fixed on the Rock of my salvation, in Jesus' name I pray. AMEN.Source: Verse of the day for 1 Peter 5:10
Heavenly Father, thank You that You are the God of all grace and that Christ suffered once for all on the cross for me.. not only paying the price for my sins but also breaking the power sin and Satan in my life. Continue to perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish me in Jesus name.. and may I never forget that You who started a good work in me will continue until the day of Christ Jesus, AMEN.Source: Verse of the day for 1 Peter 5:10
