7 Strong Prayers for Alcohol Addiction

Battling with addiction is more than just an emotional battle. Addiction attacks the spiritual state of one’s life, bringing temptation and weakness to the forefront. These strong prayers for alcohol addiction will encourage you to reach out to the Lord for relief and strength.

Prayer #1

Father we thank You for all those that are involved in helping others with their addiction to alcohol. We thank You for places like Alcoholic Anonymous and the many Christian ministries and rehab centres that are dedicated to helping men and women recover from this debilitating and distressing addiction, and showing them the love of the Lord Jesus.

Give wisdom, grace and patience to all that are serving in one capacity or another to relieve the distress and devastation that alcoholism leaves in it wake. We pray that You would give them the right words of encouragement and advice to enable those that are addicted.. to enable them to permanently break free of their alcoholism and so live a more meaningful and fruitful life.

We pray that You would not only rescue alcoholics men and women from the depths of despair to which many have fallen, but also that You would raise them up into a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ and bring them into newness of life in Him – to His praise and glory – this we ask in Jesus name,

Amen

Prayer #2

Dear Lord Jesus, all forms of addiction ruins so many lives and addiction to alcohol can cause such devastation in the lives of individuals and their relationships with the family, friends, neighbours and work colleagues.

Dear Lord we lift up to You all those that have become addicted to alcohol, which so often damages and destroy the lives of so many people. Lord we a pray for all who have been afflicted with this terrible disease – that they would be released from the ruinous way that it affects so many and be set free of this addiction.

Lord we know that there is no freedom except in You and for those that are Your children we pray that in You mercy You would meet each of Your children at their point of need – and in the power of the Spirit living within, I pray that they may break free of this destructive addiction.

And Lord for those that are not believers – we ask that in Your grace You would convict them of their damaging behaviour, both in their own bodies and in the lives of those that they know and love, and turn them away from alcohol addiction to a right relationship with the Lord Jesus – in Whose name I pray,

Amen

Prayer #3

Dear Lord Jesus, 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.

We know that You love and care for each and every addict and desire that they break free from their addiction and come to a saving faith Jesus Christ.. Who died and rose again so that the power of sin and bondage to all forms of addiction might become ineffective in the lives that is focused on the Lord Jesus.

We lift up all those that we know who are suffering in any way, due to alcoholic abuse and addiction, especially those that we know personally.. and 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 those affected by the alcoholism of others to be kept our of harms way – and may all come to a saving faith in Jesus and begin to enjoy a close walk with Him, in Jesus name we pray,

Amen

Prayer #4

Dear God, is saddens me so much that my dear brother has become dependent on alcohol and he is so young to have been dragged into this destructive life-style. Lord it is having a very serious effect on his relationship with his whole family and he seems to have thrown away his life, which was so promising – and it saddens me deeply.

Lord He seems to have been dragged in so deeply into this addiction that I fear that he is unlikely to emerge from it – but my trust is in You and I pray that in Your love and grace You will reach down and convict him of his need of You and draw him back into a right relationship with You..

Father I know he needs to take responsibility for this serious addiction- but I know that at times it can be seen as an illness – Lord look down in pity I pray on my brother and help him become free – in Jesus name I pray,

Amen

Prayer #5

Father I confess that I have allowed myself to become addicted to alcohol, and it is to my shame and sadness that my life is simply spiralling out of control. Lord I know that in and of myself I am not able to break free of this destructive habit and ask that in Your grace and mercy You would help me to be set free of this ungodly addiction.

Dear Lord Jesus, all forms of addiction ruins so many lives and addiction to alcohol can cause such devastation in the lives of individuals and their relationships with the family, friends, neighbours and work colleagues.

Dear Lord we lift up to You all those that have become addicted to alcohol, which Satan so often uses as a tool to damage and destroy the lives of so many people. Lord we a pray for all who have been afflicted with this terrible disease – that they would be released from the ruinous way that it affects so many and be set free of this addiction.

Lord we know that there is no freedom except in You and for those that are Your children we pray that in You mercy You would meet each of Your children at their point of need – and in the power of the Spirit living within, I pray that they may break free of this destructive addiction.

And Lord for those that are not believers – we ask that in Your grace You would convict them of their damaging behaviour, both in their own bodies and in the lives of those that they know and love, and turn them away from alcohol addiction to a right relationship with the Lord Jesus – in Whose name I pray,

Prayer #7

I confess that I have not only hurt other people, and especially those that are close to me – but I have offended You and ignored some of the warnings that I believe were directly or indirectly sent from You. Help me I pray to break free of this ungodly addiction and get on the road to recovery.

Forgive me Lord I pray me for I have sinned against You and ignored the clear teaching of Your Word to live soberly, righteously and in the fear of the Lord and to walk circumspectly before You, as a child of the light. But I come to You in humble submission to ask You to help me to get on the road to addiction recovery, for I know that You have promised to lift-up all who come to You out of the miry pit – even when we have foolishly dug it for ourselves.

Help me be set free from alcohol.. putting on the breastplate of righteousness, and grace, and for helmet – the hope of salvation in Christ , in Whose name I pray, Amen.

We all make mistakes in life. Learning how to recover from them will bring you spiritual restoration and relief.
