Prayer From A Compulsive Gamblers

Dear Father God, I have sinned and become obsessed with gambling to the extent that it has become a terrible compulsion in my life.. for which I am deeply ashamed and grieved in my spirit.
 
Lord I know that there is nothing that commends me to You except that I come in the name of JESUS - and ask that in His name I might be washed clean of this sin and made whiter than snow. Lord I know that I cannot do this on my own but only in His strength.. only in the power of His Holy Spirit.
 
Lord I believe that Jesus died for my sins and rose again so that the power of sin might be broken in my life.. and Lord I confess that I have wandered far from You but I also know that You are a God of compassion and mercy - slow to anger and of great goodness and I know that this life-style that has so enwrapped me is not Your will for my life. Help me Lord to break free in Jesus name I pray – and I will give You all the praise and glory,
 
Amen
