Prayer For A Recovering Alcoholic

Heavenly Father, thank You for helping me along the way to recovery from my addiction to alcohol. Thank You, Father, for lifting me up out of the miry clay, saving me from the pit of despair and setting my feet on solid ground. Thank You, that You cared enough for me to be there throughout my recovery, to uphold me with Your righteous right hand, as You poured out grace and mercy to help in time of need.

I repent of my foolish decline into alcoholism and confess my reluctance to admit that I was getting swept into an increasingly ungodly lifestyle. Forgive my selfish foolishness and thank You from the bottom of my heart for setting me on the right path to freedom in Christ by putting a new song in my mouth, even praise to my God.

Oh the joy and peace of knowing and trusting the Lord Jesus Christ. You have performed wonders in my life and I praise the good work that You are doing in me. Thank You for the freedom I have found in You as You have gently led me along the path to recovery from alcoholism. You are my God and have performed great and mighty wonders in me, and I praise Your holy name for ever and ever,

“Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;”
