Prayer For A Child Caught Up In Addiction

Dear Lord Jesus, our heart is breaking with grief because our precious child has gone down the route of addiction. They have left home and are now living rough in the streets and seem to have become an entirely different personality. Lord we have not seen them now for many months and we are filled with great sadness –but we are trusting You Lord to work a miracle.

Look down Lord Jesus in pity on our dear child and convict them of their wrongdoing and restore a right mind within them. Protect them Lord from the dangers that surround them and bring them home Lord we pray.

Lord there is nothing that we can do, but to trust You - and we DO trust You Lord, to turn our child right round and return them home. Into Your hands we commit this great sadness and pray that the return of our precious prodigal will take place very soon – and we will give You all the praise and glory,

Amen

Heavenly Father, there are times when the difficulties and dangers in my life seem to be very similar to the things that David went through when he called on You to judge his enemies and cover his accusers with dishonour and shame. At times I also feel like praying for You to avenge me of all the horrid things my enemies have done against me. I also know You have promised that Your grace is sufficient for me in ALL the evils I may face, and pray that You would give me wisdom to know how to pray when I am beset by those that would do me harm. Help me O Lord, my God to deal with those that would assault my soul in a Christlike way, and give me wisdom to recognise a time to pray for forgiveness and a time to pray for justice - this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.

Prayer For Those That Are Addicted To Smoking

Heavenly Father we 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 we know that anything that is able to overtake a persons 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 and in the name of Jesus,

Amen
