O Lord Jesus, you were compassionate towards those that came to you for healing, and since you never change, I ask you to be compassionate towards me. Heal me from this addiction, please, Lord, for I am tired of living like this. I have tried to quit drugs and alcohol several times, but I keep going back. Lord, I can’t do it alone. Look upon me with loving kindness and rescue me. Deliver me and help me to become a testimony among those who know me. Use me as a vessel to show the world how good you are, Lord. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

Rescue Prayer
Heavenly Father, the enemy, has confused many people and led them away using drugs. Instead of people worshiping you, they are chasing after drugs. Lord have mercy on them. Open their eyes to the truth and rescue from the prison of addiction. Many of them want to stop using drugs, but the desire to use them seems stronger. They keep falling back to their addictive habits, and this has left them discouraged. Lord uphold them with your righteous right hand that they may stand firm and get clean. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray. Amen.

Grace Prayer
Lord Jesus, let your grace be upon me as I start this journey of getting clean from drugs. When the urge to use drugs overcomes me, let your grace be sufficient for me to fight against such thoughts. When the enemy reminds me of my failures, Holy Spirit of God, remind them that I am a victor through Christ. Please help me to live in perfect freedom so that I can make a difference in the lives of drug addicts. May my life glorifies your name from this point onward. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

Courage Prayer
O Lord, quitting drugs and living a clean life is very hard. I keep going back to my struggle, and this leaves me feeling condemned. Today, I refuse to do this on my own. I surrender myself to you, Lord. Forgive me, O God, and clean me inside out that I may testify your goodness in the land of the living. Restore health to me and cause me to rejoice in the land. Please help me to seek my happiness in you, not drugs, alcohol, or destructive behaviors. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray. Amen.
