A Prayer for Those Struggling With Addiction
Dear Heavenly Father, I stand in faith on the authority I have as a believer in Jesus Christ, and a co-heir to His kingdom. Your Word says that Satan has come down with great wrath, knowing that he has only a short time. We know Lord that You are the only answer. We know Lord that the enemy comes to steal our lives, to kill and destroy our families.
In the name of Jesus Christ, I bind every evil spirit and every evil plan the enemy has planned to keep me in this addiction. God’s Word says that God has plans for good and not evil (Jeremiah 29:11) for me and I claim God’s plan for my life right now. You have given me all authority through Jesus Christ to execute this judgment on the forces of Satan (Psalm 149:5-9). Your Word says that the adversaries of the Lord shall be broken in pieces in Your perfect timing, and will bring salvation, restoration and healing to me (Samuel 2:10). O Lord, with each new day, help me to be strong and continue to trust you. Bring into my eyes and heart an honesty that sees my true situation and find strength in your goodness and guidance. I declare release from my addiction and receive my renewed joy in living from this day forward (Psalms 21:1-3). Let me not be ashamed for I put my trust in You. Cleanse my mind of all darkness and fill it with love and light. Almighty God, You sent Jesus to set the captives free (Isaiah 61). I know Your power and I know Your might. I ask that You deliver me from all addictions and bondage that has kept me from being and doing my best. I know Lord that You and only You can and will deliver me from this evil. Help me to arm myself with strength and hope. Help those around me to give me sound and Godly advice. I believe in miracles and according to Your Word in Psalms 149:5-9 because You are my deliverer. Heavenly Father, I ask that You send Your angelic warriors to drive back this stronghold of addiction. To God be the Glory. In Jesus Name we pray, Amen
If you have prayed this prayer and wish to find a support system that will help you grow in your relationship with Christ, please plan to attend one of the Overcomers Support Groups. Detailed information is listed below.
Overcomers Recovery Support Group:
Group meets every Monday at 6:00 PM
Millions of people are fighting silent, losing battles with alcoholism, drug addiction, gambling, pornography and sexual addictions, eating disorders, violence, criminal activities, or feelings of inadequacy and failure. Through self-help books, talk shows and the Internet, it has become easy to research the subject of recovery. People have been inspired to renew spiritual commitments, get involved in a local church or develop a willingness to change. Maintaining emotional and spiritual stability for a lifetime, however, involves more than knowledge; it requires changes in attitudes and behaviors, and most of all, a relationship with God.
The Overcomers Program has a long established history of success through weekly meetings and the 90-day recovery workbook A Daily Choice, Overcoming Life-controlling Problems, by Charles and Sharon Burton. The daily lessons are personal and there is no specific evaluation of your written work. You are asked to faithfully attend a minimum of 12 weekly meetings and complete one easy to understand lesson each day for 90 days. Meetings are open to adults who desire spiritual and emotional support while overcoming addictions, compulsive behaviors or codependency. Our support groups maintain a positive atmosphere of acceptance, practicality and encouragement. Observing the principle of confidentiality creates a safe environment for discussing difficult issues or disclosing painful emotional wounds. Your participation in weekly support meetings and completion of the daily lessons will provide direction for your successful future.
Our commitment is to give you friendship, prayer and acceptance, along with the educational and spiritual tools to help you overcome your life-controlling problems. A better understanding of God’s love and forgiveness will help you make appropriate daily choices and regain your self confidence. You can use your failures as stepping stones to make necessary lifestyle adjustments and take control of your future.
