Dear Lord Jesus, all forms of addiction ruins so many lives, and addiction to alcohol can cause such devastation in the lives of individuals and their relationships with the family, friends, neighbours and work colleagues.
Dear Lord, I lift up to You all those that have become addicted to alcohol, which Satan so often uses as a tool to damage and destroy the lives of so many people. Lord, I pray for all who have been afflicted with this terrible disease. May they be released from the ruinous way that it affects so many, and be set free of this addiction.
Lord, I know that there is no freedom except in You. I pray that in Your mercy, You would meet each of Your children at their point of need. In the power of the Spirit living within, I pray that they may break free of this destructive addiction.
And Lord for those that are not believers, I ask that in Your grace, You would convict them of their damaging behaviour, both in their own bodies and in the lives of those that they know and love. Turn them away from alcohol addiction to a right relationship with the Lord Jesus, in Whose name I pray,
