Father, I confess that I have allowed myself to become addicted to alcohol, and it is to my shame and sadness that my life is simply spiralling out of control. Lord, I know that in and of myself I am not able to break free of this destructive habit and ask that in Your grace and mercy You would help me to be set free of this ungodly addiction. I ask this simple, yet difficult prayer in the name of Jesus,
Heavenly Father, I confess that I have not only hurt other people, and especially those that are close to me, but I have offended You and ignored some of the warnings that I believe were directly or indirectly sent from You. Help me I pray to break free of this ungodly addiction and get on the road to recovery.
Forgive me Lord, for I have sinned against You and ignored the clear teaching of Your Word to live soberly, righteously and in the fear of the Lord and to walk circumspectly before You, as a child of the light. But I come to You in humble submission to ask You to help me to get on the road to addiction recovery, for I know that You have promised to lift-up all who come to You out of the miry pit, even when we have foolishly dug it for ourselves.
Help me be set free from alcohol, putting on the breastplate of righteousness, and for the helmet of salvation in Christ, in Whose name I pray,
Heavenly Father, I pray that in Your sufficient grace I will stand firm in this evil day and in Your strength will patiently endure all the trial and tribulations that the enemy will strew in my path. Thank You that Your grace is sufficient and I pray that I will not start to rely on my own abilities; provision and strength.. but appropriate all that You have given me in Christ - to Whom be all honour and praise, AMEN.Source: Verse of the day for James 1:12
