January 26: A Prayer Concerning Overcoming Addictions

Heavenly Father, thank You for Jesus, the Name that is above all names. Thank You for giving us the power of the Holy Spirit which is greater than any power that exists in this world. Thank You for never giving up on us, even when we fail time after time. You are so merciful and kind. We cannot live without You, Lord. We will praise You with our whole hearts. We will tell of the marvelous things You have done. We are filled with joy because of You, Most High, and we sing praises to Your Name! We know You to be a shelter for us when we are oppressed and troubled. You never abandon those who search for You. Lord, we love You. You are our strength. You are the Rock in whom we find protection and safety. Your Name is worthy of praise!

 

Faithful Father, it is not Your will for us to be lost and held captive by addictions to drugs, alcohol, sex, food, gambling, or any other vices. We decree that whoever the Son has set free is truly free. Therefore, we rebuke the spirit of addiction that seeks to destroy the lives of those within our Church Family, our personal families, and in our community. There is no other name that is powerful enough to save our loved ones who are bound by addiction than the Name of Jesus. We are the righteous, and our earnest prayers have great power, producing wonderful results. We will not waver and doubt when things seem to get worse instead of better. We know that You will respond to our faith. Therefore, we declare that we will not cease to pray until our loved ones who are bound by addiction are released and delivered. We declare, in the Name of Jesus, that our homes, our families, and our communities are restored back to You!

 

List the names of friends, family, or neighbors who are struggling to break free of an addiction. Commit to pray specifically for them today:

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, make us keenly aware of those within our Church Family and community who are hurting and bound. Give us a heart of compassion toward them. Show us how to reach out to them without judging or condemning them. Remind us of Your love and grace that brought us through our trials. Heal those who are bound by addiction in every area of their hurt.  Strengthen and help those who have been hurt by the fallout of addiction – the grandparents raising grandchildren, incarcerated parents, abandoned and abused children, impoverished families, and those who have lost loved ones due to addiction. Help us, as a Church Family, to build better partnerships with community organizations who are reaching out to house, educate, and rehabilitate those who want to come out of addiction. May we be salt and light to them as the Lord has commanded.

 

Righteous Father, please forgive us for not being there when we should have for those who turned to drugs for comfort. Forgive us for judging and condemning those who are addicted. Forgive us for overlooking opportunities to show love and compassion to the hurting families who are suffering from the effects of addiction. Forgive those who are addicted for turning to something unholy for help instead of turning to You. Forgive them for not responding to the voice of wisdom and making unhealthy choices in life. Forgive those of us who have at one time, knowingly or unknowingly, contributed to the cause of another’s addiction. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that You have committed). Holy Spirit, remind those who are addicted of all those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show You names or faces of people that You may need to forgive. As He shows You, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in Your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

 

Holy Spirit, help those who are addicted to not yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

 

Glorious Lord, ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything You made, we can clearly see Your invincible qualities – Your eternal power and Your divine nature. O Sovereign Lord, You have only begun to show Your greatness and the strength of Your hand to Your servants. Is there any god in heaven or on earth who can perform such great and mighty deeds as You do? In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

A Prayer about Materialism

A Prayer about Materialism

 

Scripture Reading

I Chronicles 16, Matthew 6:19-34

 

Reflections of the Heart:

Jesus said, “A person is a fool to store up earthly wealth but not have a rich relationship with God.”  Luke 12:21 (NLT)

 

Scriptural Prayer:

 

Heavenly Father, Your Name is to be honored.  Lord, how excellent is Your Name in all the earth.   You have set Your glory above the heavens.  Lord, You are a great and greatly to be praised.  Your greatness is unsearchable.  Today, we lift our voices towards heaven and offer praises to Your Most Holy Name.  We thank You for Your marvelous works and Your loving kindness and tender mercies toward us.  Thank You for providing us with employment and blessing us with homes, cars, and “things.”  Lord, You are good.  Your mercy endures forever.

 

Father, it is Your will that we do not lay up material treasures on earth for ourselves, where moth and rust can destroy and where thieves can break in and steal; but lay up treasures in heaven for ourselves, where neither moth nor rust can destroy and where thieves do not break in and steal.  Your word states that our lives do not consist in the abundance of the things we possess: therefore, we will beware of covetousness.  The one who lays up treasure for himself is not rich towards You.  Where our treasure is, there our heart will be also.  Lord, we confess that life is more than food, and the body is more than clothing.  Therefore, we declare that we, as a church body, will seek first Your kingdom and Your righteousness and all things will be added to us.  Lord, we confess that we will not trust in uncertain riches but we will trust in You, the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy.  We confess that we will be a church that will continue to do good works and we will be ready to give and be willing to share.

 

What “material things” are controlling your life?  List them and ask the Holy Spirit to help you release control and let them go, so that God’s perfect will is done in your life:

_______________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Father, please help us to spend wisely and not excessively.  Please break the bondage of conspicuous consumption over our nation.  Help us to be better stewards of the resources You have blessed us with.  Holy Spirit, please help us to be more disciplined with our lifestyles.  Father, help us to learn to be content with what we have instead of always wanting more.  Help those who are in financial trouble.  Many need a miracle in their finances and we ask for Your intervention.

 

Father, please forgive us for greed, selfish ambition, idolatry, conceit and arrogance.  Forgive us for loving things and placing them over You.  Forgive us for not being good stewards of Your blessings.  As a church, we renounce any gods of materialism.  Lord, remind us of those we need to forgive; and help us to forgive.

 

Lead us not into temptation; but, deliver us from the evil one.

 

Lord, You are the Almighty God, the One who is and who was and who is to come.  You have taken Your great power and reigned.  Great and marvelous are Your works, Lord God Almighty.  Just and true are Your ways, O king of the saints.  Who will not fear You, O Lord, and glorify Your name?  For You alone are holy.  All the nations will come and worship before You; for Your judgments are manifested.  For Yours is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, forever.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

 

Scripture References for the written text:  Matthew 6:9, Psalm 8:1, Psalm 136:1, Matthew 6:19-20, Luke 12:15, Luke 12:21, Matthew 6:21, Luke 12:23, Matthew 6:33, I Timothy 6:17-19, II Timothy 3:16-17, Ephesians 6:13-17, Galatians 5:16, Matthew 6:13, Revelation 11:17, Revelation 15:3-4

A Prayer Concerning Overcoming Addiction

A Prayer  Concerning Overcoming Addiction

Scripture Reading:

Psalm 51, Romans 7:14-25

Reflections of the Heart:

Sometimes, we experience things in life that grip us and won’t let us go. We submit to cravings and desires that, over time, dominate and control us. But, thank God, there is a way out, and His Name is Jesus Christ!

Scriptural Prayer:

Heavenly Father, thank You for Jesus, the Name that is above all names. Thank You for giving us a greater power than anything that exists in this world. Thank You for never giving up on us, even when we fail time after time. You are so merciful and kind. We cannot live without You, Lord. We will praise You with our whole hearts. We will tell of the marvelous things You have done. We are filled with joy because of You, Most High, and we sing praises to Your Name! We know You to be a shelter for us when we are oppressed and troubled. You never abandon those who search for You. Lord, we love You. You are our strength. You are the Rock in whom we find protection and safety. Your Name is worthy of praise!

Faithful Father, it is not Your will for us to be lost and held captive by addictions to drugs, alcohol, sex, food, gambling, or any other vices. We decree that whoever the Son has set free is truly free. Therefore, we rebuke the spirit of addiction that seeks to destroy the lives of those within our Church Family, our personal families, and in our community. There is no other name that is powerful enough to save our loved ones who are bound by addiction than the Name of Jesus. Father, we declare that we are the righteous, and our earnest prayers have great power, producing wonderful results. We decree that we will not waver and doubt when things seem to get worse instead of better. We know that You will respond to our faith. Therefore, we declare that we will not cease to pray until our loved ones who are bound by addiction are released and delivered. We confess that the mighty weapons that we use are able to knock down human reasoning and destroy every proud obstacle that keeps them from knowing You. We expect that Your Word, as it is spoken to them, will capture their rebellious thoughts and will teach them to obey Christ. We decree, in the Name of Jesus, that our homes, our families, and our communities are restored back to You!
