Father, I come to You in the Name of Jesus, my Saviour and I thank You that He died to pay the price for my sins and to set me free from the power of sin and death. Lord, I particularly come to You today to seek Your face on this habit of smoking, a long-time habit that I have found so difficult to break.
Lord, I know that I am not condemned because of my smoking, nevertheless it is a habit that I truly want to break and have come to You to pray that You would give me Your grace and strength to help in this time of my need.
Lord, Your Word says that I can do all things through Christ Who gives me the strength, and I pray that You would indeed give me the strength to completely stop smoking and also to remove the desire that I have to light up. Lord, I know that my body is a temple of the Holy Spirit and do not want this habit to be a master over my body and my will, but rather I want You alone to have first place in my life and within my body.
Give me the grace I pray, to enable me to stop this habit completely, and to have the desire to smoke eliminated from me. I will give You all the praise and glory, in Jesus' name,
Dear Lord, I know that my smoking has become sinful because it is has such a strong hold over me. Lord, I confess that I have allowed my smoking to take over, and to rule my life, even allowing it to dictate to my God-given volition and will, and Father I know that this in not Your will for my life. I want to change and to give up smoking and ask for Your help in this matter.
So Lord, I humbly come to You asking to put my life into Your hands, so that it is Your will that is done in my life. Lord, I want what You know is best for my life and I know that being addicted to smoking is not what You would will for me. And so, into Your hands I surrender myself. I surrender my will to smoke into Your hands, and pray that moment by moment and in the power of Your Holy Spirit, I will give every desire to smoke into Your gracious hands and take captive this destructive craving. Thank You for loving me so much that You died to break the power of sin in my life, including this ungodly addiction that is so ruinous.
May Your will be done in my life. Give me the desire and the will to stop this addiction, and thank You Father, for hearing my prayer and for always being there for me. In Jesus' name I pray,
Loving Father, I come to You to pray that You would help me to give up smoking. Father, in my heart I feel that I am not being a good witness to those around me, and although I know that there is no sin in smoking, nevertheless my heart desires to quit this habit, in order to help to be an encouragement to others who are also struggling with the habit of smoking, both believers and non-believers alike.
Lord, I pray that You would take away the desire to smoke and replace it with more and more of a desire to know You more and to draw ever closer to You in the days that lie ahead. Lord, I believe that You are willing and able to give me the strength to quit and to You be all praise. In Jesus' name,
Heavenly Father, I bring before Your throne of grace all those that are seriously embroiled in any destructive addictions and particularly those that have become addicted to smoking.
Lord, I know that anything that is able to overtake a person's will and cause them to become physically or emotionally dependent on it, is not Your will for their life, for our dependence and sufficiency is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Lord, I know that in their own strength, no one will be able be set free from a smoking addiction, but Your grace is sufficient to deal with any addiction, and Your strength to overcome the obsession with smoking is made perfect when people are prepared to hand over their addictions to You and to surrender their obsessive habits into Your safe-keeping.
Father, I pray that You will be gracious to all those that are seeking Your face on this matter and who are prepared to turn their smoking obsession over to You and move forward in their lives in Your strength, by the power of the Spirit. In the name of Jesus I pray,
