prayers for freedom from addictions
~*~*~Lord Jesus, you prayed with the words of the prophet Isaiah, "I have come to set the captives free." we are captive and need your healing touch. open our hearts to receive your gift of grace, that releases us from our bondage and addictions and gives us...
...freedom from cares and worries that stifle our happiness;
...freedom from sins that cling to us, and to which we cling;
...freedom from all compulsive behavior that prevents our becoming what You, Lord, have planned for us.
bring us, loving Savior, to the experience of abundant life which you promised. thru your Holy Name i pray, amen.
~*~*~ The Lord sets the prisoners free; the Lord opens the eyes of the blind; the Lord lifts up those who are bowed down. (Ps. 146:7) ~*~*~
dear Savior, Jesus Christ, you know the temptations of this world. be with me and teach me how to overcome my addictions.
lead me Oh God, out of my darkness
i commit myself to this journey, oh God; i will not go back.
oh Holy Spirit, fill me with your presence that i may know that i am not alone.
most merciful God, protect my loved ones that my actions will not cause them harm.
Lord Jesus, this journey is difficult and i am weak; let me lean on you.
when i stumble, oh Lord, pick me up and dust me off.
when i am tempted to turn away, dear Jesus, remind me of those who love me.
this journey is for life, oh Lord, my life is in your (exceedingly capable) hands.
