9 Uplifting Prayers for Those Struggling with Addiction

Suffering from addiction can give you feelings of surrender and weakness. Trying to overcome your addiction requires seeking the strength of the Lord and casting your burdens on Him. These uplifting prayers for those struggling with addiction will encourage you to seek the help of Jesus Christ.

Prayer #1

Today, I heal my body, my mind, my spirit, my life. Drugs are a part of my past; they are not part of my now, they are not part of my future. Today, I am clean. Today, I am clean and free.

Today, I am becoming strong one second at a time, on thought at a time, one action at a time. I am learning how to live and to be the best parts of me today. Today, I am clean and free.

Prayer #2

My mistakes don’t define me, but are transformed by the grace of God. Therefore I release shame off of me and receive love from God and others. Living one day at a time; enjoying one moment at a time; accepting hardships as the pathway to peace.

Prayer #3

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. Father, we ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Prayer #4

Look to this day!
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course
Lie all the verities and realities of your existence:
The bliss of growth;
The glory of action;
The splendor of achievement;
For yesterday is but a dream,
And tomorrow is only a vision;
But today, well lived, makes every yesterday
a dream of happiness,
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.

Prayer #5

Dear Father,
Please meet me in my loneliness, help me to have the confidence to speak with someone about my addiction. I trust that you can lead me out of this prison, that you can heal my mind and body.

I long to be free, yet I still feel so trapped by my thoughts and fears. Cover me with your love and grace, until, with your help Lord, I can walk in freedom, break out and fully live again.
Amen.

Prayer #6

O Lord,

I trust that you understand me. You have carried me in the hardest times. Only you have seen each despairing moment and only you have walked beside me. Now I ask that you, with your gentle, healing hands would lead me away from my drug addiction. Cover my mind and body as I face the withdrawal and fill my heart with songs of hope. Help me to see what you can already see. Me, cleansed of all the upset and brokenness, free to live and love, restored and redeemed. Amen.

Prayer #7

Lord, you are our deliverer. We can do anything through Christ who strengthens us…but, we must take the first step. We must realize we have a problem and a need… and we must ask for help. I ask Lord, that you will give each person the courage to face up to their problems and to have a strong desire to change.

We ask for healing in families torn apart by addiction. We ask for protection for those family members that are in harm’s way because of their loved one’s addictions. Lord, everyone suffers in a family where there is addiction. Please pour out your grace, mercy and healing power on each person who has been affected by someone with an addiction.

We praise you and thank you Lord for the work you are going to do. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
