Prayer #1

Father God, I don’t deserve Your grace and mercy, but I ask in Jesus name that You would enable me stay away from drugs and those that would seek to draw me back into the destructive world of drugs and drug abuse.

Lord Jesus, I know that I am weak and that in my own strength I could so easily be drawn like a moth to a flame if I did not have You to sustain me and support me.

Lord, You have promised in Your word that Your strength in made perfect in my weakness… Lord help me to keep my eyes fixed on Jesus; help me too take every thought captive and give each one to You and help me I pray to lean on You from this day forward – knowing that I can do all things through Christ , Who strengthens me – Thank You in Jesus name, Amen

Prayer #2

Lord it is my prayer that You would free my son from the drugs that have become almost an addiction to him.. and which have almost broken the family apart and caused us all such pain and distress.

Father You know the anger that seems to lurk within him and the explosive outbursts that are so difficult to cope with. Lord He needs Jesus in his life and the indwelling Holy Spirit in his heart and I ask that You would convince him of his need for Jesus – and convict him of: “sin and righteousness and judgement”… just as Your Word has said.. and bring Him I pray, to recognise that this addiction to drugs is not Your will for anyone and is likely to end in tragedy if not dealt with soon. Thank You Jesus. Amen

Prayer #3

Thank You that I can come to You to seek for deliverance and know that You will not turn me away. Thank You that Your mercies are new every morning and thank You that You are faithful and true to Your word – even when we prove faithless.

Lord I know that Your Word promises a way of deliverance to all who seek You and I believe that in Jesus is found healing and wholeness, salvation and security – deliverance and joy. And Lord I ask for You to deliver me from these drugs and free me from being in bondage to this cursed addiction.

Help me I pray. Save me Lord and set me free from these drugs on which I have become so dependant. Give me the means to break loose from drugs and the ability to see it through to the end. I know that on my own I will fail but Lord I do believe that in Christ I can be set free – help me Lord in Jesus name, Amen

Prayer #4

Dear Lord, please release my son from the angers that dwell inside of him. Almighty Father, take him in your hands and guide him to better choices, for a life without the need for drugs or alcohol. That the trouble that he is now facing, is left behind him. Lord, my son is a wonderful young man, give him the courage and the faith to believe in himself, and realize how much he is loved and cherished.

Father, hear my prayers for him and all others that are living the same kind of life. Heal them Lord, let them rejoice in a life of self respect, love for themselves, and most of all the Glory of your love. I know in you, that he and all the others can find peace and happiness. O’ God our Father, please hear my prayers. Amen.

Prayer #5

Dear Lord I bring my brother to You whose reliance on drugs and addiction to medication is causing me and the family serious concerns and sadness.

Lord we really don’t know what to do and we seem to have run out of ideas and suggestions and there is no one but You to whom we can turn.

Lord he is prone to mood swings – sometimes seeming depressed and at other times hyper active.. and yet at other times is only able to sleep – sometimes for the best part of a day.. Help us we pray to help HIM.. and release him Lord, from this unhealthy reliance on drugs. Heal him of the negative effects that they are having on his physical and mental health and return him to normal health and strength we ask in Jesus name, Amen.

Prayer #6

Lord it breaks my heart that my beautiful daughter has somehow become involved with drugs and she has almost become a different person with her mood swings, depression and anger. Lord this is not what I want for my daughter and pray that You would help her to reverse this terrible addiction, which has had such a devastating impact on all our lives.

We love her so much and I know that Your love for her exceeds our own (if that is possible) and I pray that in Your grace and mercy You would help her to break free from this addiction to drugs and medication.. and that You would help us to give her the help and support she needs during this most difficult time.

Give me wisdom I pray to know what to do and how to help with her. I feel at a loss to know what to do but my eyes are on You Lord. Visit us all with Your peace I pray and restore the joy and happiness we once had – this I ask in Jesus name, Amen.


Prayer #7

You are a loving God and we praise and thank You for all Your goodness to us and to all men – We bless You for our lives and for all the joy and grace that You so readily bestow on all Your creation.

But Lord we lift up an increasing number of men and women who suffer from drug addiction and pray that You would provide them with the grace and strength to reach out to You for the necessary help and guidance that they may need – as they take the important steps to recovering their physical, emotional and spiritual health.

Give those that are addicted to drugs the will, perseverance, courage and ability to take the first step to regain their health and wholeness. Comfort and succour friends and family members that are affected by those that are trapped in drug addiction.

Give courage and hope to all who are seeking to break its demonic hold over the lives of so many and may the power of Your love and grace transform their lives – knowing that Jesus Christ alone is able to break the power of drugs, return a soul into freedom and bring beauty for brokenness – this we ask in Jesus name, Amen.

Prayer #8

Father, in the name of Jesus I believe that my child will be delivered from the spirit of drugs and alcohol. According to your Word I confess and believe that my child is free from the bondage of drugs and alcohol. Thank you that you are bringing my child back from the land of the enemy and that they will be in their right mind and sound in body.

I thank you that my child is whole and redeemed from every evil work and that they have complete control over their body. I believe that my child is set free and delivered because I have called upon the name of the Lord. Keep me in perfect peace as I wait for my appointed time with my child.In Jesus name Amen.

Prayer #9

Lord, I bring my child to You with such a heavy heart knowing that the precious child You blessed me with has become caught up with drugs.. and their life is spiralling out of control. Help us Lord I pray to know what to do and show us how we can help to stem and to stop these drug-related activities.

Wherever the blame for this situation lies.. I pray Lord that You would help us to address it so that our child is able to be freed from this drug-related trap. We pray in the name of Jesus that You would step into this situation and whatever it takes.. I pray that You would convict our child of the need to call out to You for help – for You alone have the power to help and heal their life.

Give me the strength I pray to support my child.. in prayer or therapy or any other way so that they may be enabled to leave this drug-related past behind.. and step out into the future having been freed from this bondage. And help I pray.. for me to trust in Your many precious promises and not lean on my own understanding. This I ask in Jesus name, Amen.

Prayer #10

Loving Lord Jesus we lift up all those who are suffering today from some form of addiction to drugs – whether they are prescribed medicines from a doctor or unlicensed drugs that have been gained illicitly – all addiction is detrimental to health and wholeness and Lord we want to lift up all who are addicted in one way or another.

Lord .. we believe that You were sent to heal those that are broken and damaged, crushed and hurting – in bondage to drugs or addicted to some form of medication.. and we plead Your grace and mercy over such people and pray that You would meet each man or woman at their particular point of need – and deliver each one.

Raise up those that would stand in the gap in prayer.. and bring friends and relatives who will be supportive to those that need to be liberated from their drug dependence or delivered from some form of addiction. Into Your hands we commit each one and thank and praise You for all that You are going to do in these lives – in Jesus name we pray, Amen.
