Oh Lord Jesus, how difficult life has become due to my husbands excessive drinking of alcohol – well it is now really become alcohol addition. Life has become so hard, almost unbearable.. and his temper is at times out of control- and Lord, I am beginning to fear for our safety.
Lord You know that this is splitting our family apart and at times I despair that this addiction to alcohol will ever be overcome. Lord it has not only affected his moods and his increasingly uncaring attitude toward me, but it is affecting his work and I am wondering if he may actually lose his job as a result of this.
Father it is painful to see someone You love in this pitiful state and I pray for Your guidance and strength to be able to deal with this in a way that honours You – but also for the wisdom to know what to do and how to help my husband.
Lord I know that it may be a dangerous prayer to pray.. but I ask that whatever it takes You would bring my husband to the point where of desperation, where You are the only Person to Whom he can turn.. as I know that only You can intervene in this addiction and return him to his normal mind.
Father at time I feel weak and unable to cope and yet I know that Your strength is made perfect in our weakness. Lord I know that Your grace is sufficient for me and ask that You would remain close to me – to lead and to guide, so that I would know what to do to help him overcome his alcohol addition and encourage him to turn to Jesus, in Whose name I pray,
Heavenly Father, thank You for the wisdom that is found in the book of Proverbs. I pray that I may live my life soberly, discretely and in the fear of God in all I say and do – both in my actions and my attitude. May all that I do be carried-out for Your greater honour and glory and may my life become a living testimony of a Christ-like life. This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.Source: Verse of the day for Proverbs 23:21
Father we thank You for all those that are involved in helping others with their addiction to alcohol. We thank You for places like Alcoholic Anonymous and the many Christian ministries and rehab centres that are dedicated to helping men and women recover from this debilitating and distressing addiction, and showing them the love of the Lord Jesus.
Give wisdom, grace and patience to all that are serving in one capacity or another to relieve the distress and devastation that alcoholism leaves in it wake. We pray that You would give them the right words of encouragement and advice to enable those that are addicted.. to enable them to permanently break free of their alcoholism and so live a more meaningful and fruitful life.
We pray that You would not only rescue alcoholics men and women from the depths of despair to which many have fallen, but also that You would raise them up into a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ and bring them into newness of life in Him – to His praise and glory – this we ask in Jesus name,
Father, I thank You for the many blessings that You have graciously bestowed on me, and in such abundance, but Lord my heart aches for my son, who has become so addicted to alcohol causing his life to almost spiral out of control.
Lord I am powerless to do anything to help him and he seems so lost and in so pain and I beg You Father to intervene in his life and show us what we can do to get things under control.. help him to break free of this terrible addiction and get back some semblance of normality due to this into this heart-rending situation.
Lord I know that You have plans for my son and yet he has strayed so far from the path of Your choosing – but Father I pray that in Your grace and mercy You would show us what to do to free him from His addiction to alcohol. Give me Your strength of Your mighty power to support his through this difficult time and help him I pray to break free from his alcoholism – and to You be all the praise and glory - this I ask in Jesus name,
