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. Remind them that Jesus died and rose again so that the power of sin and bondage to all forms of addiction might become ineffective in the life that is focused on the Lord Jesus.
We lift up all those 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. May all come to a saving faith in Jesus and begin to enjoy a close walk with Him. In Jesus' name,
Heavenly Father, I lift my voice in triumphant praise and joyful thanks for Christ’s victory over sin, Satan, death, and hell. Without Christ’s willingness to suffer and die on the Cross on my account, I would still be a slave to sin, under Satan’s dominion, a transgressor of the Law, and estranged from You. But You have set me free, through the shed blood of your dearly beloved Son, by grace through faith, so that I may love and worship You in spirit and in truth. I praise and thank You that You have already disarmed the satanic rulers and authorities and triumphed over them, making them a public example. I pray that I may live my life as unto the Lord. In Jesus' name, AMEN.Source: Verse of the day for Colossians 2:15
