Dear Lord Jesus, all forms of addiction ruins so many lives and addiction to alcohol can cause such devastation in the lives of individuals and their relationships with the family, friends, neighbours and work colleagues.
Dear Lord we lift up to You all those that have become addicted to alcohol, which Satan so often uses as a tool to damage and destroy the lives of so many people. Lord we a pray for all who have been afflicted with this terrible disease - that they would be released from the ruinous way that it affects so many and be set free of this addiction.
Lord we know that there is no freedom except in You and for those that are Your children we pray that in You mercy You would meet each of Your children at their point of need - and in the power of the Spirit living within, I pray that they may break free of this destructive addiction.
And Lord for those that are not believers – we ask that in Your grace You would convict them of their damaging behaviour, both in their own bodies and in the lives of those that they know and love, and turn them away from alcohol addiction to a right relationship with the Lord Jesus – in Whose name I pray,
Heavenly Father, thank You that I am a full and equal member of the Church and that by Your grace I was baptised into the Body of Christ at my salvation. Thank You that I can partake of the same spiritual benefits that have been promised to all Your children. Thank You for the gifts, graces, benefits and ministry You have seen fit to give to me, by Your grace. I pray that I may be a willing and obedient member of Christ's Body and fulfil all the work You have prepared for me to do - to Your praise and glory. This I ask in Jesus' name and for His eternal glory - AMEN.Source: Verse of the day for 2 Corinthians 3:17
