Dear Father God,
We bring to You those who are addicted to alcohol. Jesus, only You can heal these men and women who are caught in the web of intoxication. We pray that our youth especially are protected, from falling into this temptation. A special prayer for the spouses, parents and children of alcoholics.
We come to You in deep pain and sadness for those we know who are suffering in one way of another due to alcohol abuse. Both those that have been ensnared in their own excessive alcohol addiction and also those that are badly affected by the alcoholic abuse of someone else, a spouse, a parent, a child or a friend.
May our homes, churches and organisations be places where individuals can celebrate without alcohol. Heal the addicts, Lord Jesus.
Dear Father God, in a world where many people are struggling to overcome the curse of alcoholic addiction, we lift up all those that have been ensnared by this ungodly dependence on drink, which has too often been the root cause of many ruined lives and numerous dysfunctional families.
We pray that in Your grace and pity You would come alongside those who have this serious dependency on alcohol and ask that You would create in them a dislike and distain for all forms of liquor.
Lord, You died for each one on the cross. Lord we know that You have all that is needed for each and every sufferer to be set free from this alcoholic dependency.
We pray that in Your grace You would draw many out of this slavery to drink and give them new dependency – trust in Jesus,.
We know that You love and care for each and every addict and desire that they break free from their addiction. Remind them that Jesus died and rose again so that the power of sin and bondage to all forms of addiction might become ineffective in the life that is focused on the Lord Jesus.
We lift up all those we know who are suffering in any way, due to alcoholic abuse and addiction, especially those that we know personally, those in our family and those in our friends circle. We pray that in Your grace and mercy You would do a great work in their lives, enabling those in bondage to break free of their debilitating addiction and to be kept out of harm’s way.
May all of them come to a saving faith in Jesus and begin to enjoy a close walk with Him.
In Jesus’ name we pray.
