Prayers for Drugs


A Prayer For Drug Deliverance

Dear Lord, I thank You that You care for people like me who have gone so far astray from the way of truth. Thank You that You have never given up on me despite my addiction to drugs. Thank You that I can come to You to seek for deliverance and know that You will not turn me away. Thank You that Your mercies are new every morning and thank You that You are faithful and true to Your word – even when we prove faithless.
 
Lord I know that Your Word promises a way of deliverance to all who seek You and I believe that in Jesus is found healing and wholeness, salvation and security – deliverance and joy. And Lord I ask for You to deliver me from these drugs and free me from being in bondage to this cursed addiction.
 
Help me I pray. Save me Lord and set me free from these drugs on which I have become so dependant. Give me the means to break loose from drugs and the ability to see it through to the end.  I know that on my own I will fail but Lord I do believe that in Christ I can be set free - help me Lord in Jesus name,
 
Amen

Thank You Jesus..
