God of life, You made me in Your perfect image, to live in Your love and to give You glory, honor and praise. Open my heart to Your healing power. Come, Lord Jesus, calm my soul just as you whispered “Peace” to the stormy sea.

St. Jude, most holy Apostle, in my need I reach out to you. I beg you to intercede for me that I may find strength to overcome my illness. Bless all those who struggle with addiction. Touch them, heal them, reassure them of the Father’s constant love.

Remain at my side, St. Jude, to chase away all evil temptations, fears, and doubts. May the quiet assurance of your loving presence illuminate the darkness in my heart and bring lasting peace.
Amen.

Prayer #4

God of mercy, we bless you in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ, who ministered to all who come to Him. Give your strength to (name of the one I am praying for), who is bound by the chains of addiction. Enfold him/her in your love and restore him/her to freedom through your grace.

Lord, look with compassion on all those who have lost their health and have broken relationships because of their attachment to the object of their addiction. Restore to them the assurance of your unfailing mercy, and strengthen them in the work of recovery. To those who care for them, grant patient understanding and a love that perseveres.

Lord, in your servant, Venerable Matt Talbot you have given us a wonderful example of triumph over addiction, of devotion to duty, and of lifelong reverence of the Holy Sacrament. May his life of prayer and penance give (name of the one I am praying for) courage to take up his/her cross and follow in the footsteps of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Father, we ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Prayer #5

Dear God,
I come to You as I come to no one else.
I am so sorry.
I have nearly thrown away my life, my body, my soul
—through addiction.
But recognition of my addiction
has never given me power to control it.
You know this.
You never blame me.
You know the truth.

Addiction is an attractor field – a low vibrational level.
I wound up there because I was trying to escape pain,
Or I was trying to experience something transcendent,
And I got stuck.

But there is a better way to escape pain,
And there is a better way to touch rapture.
I can receive an authentic calling from You.

Therefore, I surrender myself to what I can be
—to that highest level to which You call me.
I demand, now, in this moment, Father, that You call me
—that You call me loudly.

You call me and raise me up out of addiction
—and into a higher level attractor field.

And as You raise me,
So do You raise all of Humanity out of addiction
—and into a higher level attractor field.
Together we rise, as one force in You, one at a time and together.
You raise me because I deserve a better life.
You raise me because I am ready to be raised.
You raise me because the world needs me.

I rise and keep rising; I do not fall.
I rise because You need me.
I am Your Thoughts, Your Voice, Your Hands.
I rejoice in my inherent holiness.
For I am where You reside.

You lift me because I have asked
—and because you love me so very much.

By Your grace, as I read this,
My mind and energy align with Yours.
By Your grace, the power of my mind
Is multiplied exponentially by all who read this.
Aligned with You, we are more powerful than any evil
— or any substance—
Can ever be.

Together WE form a conduit of love.
It reaches into my need for addiction and I am healed.
By healing myself, I help heal Humanity’s need for addiction.
Joy fills my soul. My gratitude is infinite.
Thank You, Beloved Creator.

And so it is.
Amen.

Prayer #6

Lord God in heaven Creator of all things.
You have all power to heal those who are struggling with the devastating disease of addiction.

We pray God you would intercede in their lives and flood their eyes with light. So they can know and understand the hope to which you have called them.

Give them strength and courage take away their fears, grief, anxieties, and resentments.
Send your word God heal them, rescue them from the pit of destruction.
Allow them to live and not die.
Heal their broken hearts and bind up their wounds curing all of their pains and sorrows.
Allow them to hear your call, allow them the grace to never ever give up and to always stay focused on you.

Fill their hearts with your word, for your word is life to all who find it and health for the whole body, mind, and spirit.
I pray these things in Jesus Holy Name.
Amen.
