Prayer of deliverance for those struggeling with addiction.
God,

I am really struggling right now. You know the thoughts and desires on my mind that I feel will take me over and destroy me, yet it calls me so strongly! I surrender it God, the best I can and know how! I wish these desire would go away and never cause me any more pain. But you, God, know what’s best for me and how to bring me to a place of closer intimacy with you, and if it’s through the searing pain of my passions being surrendered God then I will listen today. I can’t give you tomorrow God because that is too much for me to think about. I just know that I can give you right now. I feel so weak willed and empty, depleted of any strength to put up any kind of fight on my own. It overwhelms me and my mind discourages me with thoughts and images that try and persuade me to give up and ultimately die in my addiction. Oh God please come close to me now and comfort me, I need you! My heart thirsts and longs for your holy presence! It’s either all of you or I throw myself headlong into my addiction and cut the remaining thin thread that holds my life together. I don’t want to go down in flames, I don’t want to perish in this addiction that enflames and enslaves my mind; I want it out of me forever! God please help me, please help me, please help me, I don’t know what else to say or how else to ask for your deliverance. Please help me.

May God be with all those suffereing inside and outside this thread with all different types and levels of addiction. Amen and God bless

Always remember, HE loves you and forgives you. I too used to struggle with addiction. Just remember Job, GOD allowed him to endure a lot! And GOD only disciplines those HE loves.

Re: Prayer of deliverance for those struggeling with addiction.
The struggle is just what you need. Also shows how much you care about yourself. That is good.
You can do it man!
Think about how much you are cheating yourself out of life.
You don't need that shit to be happy, man.
You may find sobriety much more interesting than the drug induced dullness you are in now.

Bring out all your strength for this one. You are not on your own here. Not only can you ask God for help, but you got us.

Prepare to move to the next level.

If willpower is all it takes, I don't have enough of it. I am completely powerless over my addiction! I am happy for people out there who can grip the wheel tighter and keep it on the road, but as for me I eventually crash everytime. Thanks for the post. God bless.

If I didn't believe and understand the levels of Gods love and mercy I wouldn't be able to make it out of bed in the morning. I couldn't agree more, thanks for the comment! God bless!

Re: Prayer of deliverance for those struggeling with addiction.
Praying for you! FYI: Addiction is actually the sin of Idolatry.....setting up something/someone as a god in your life by making it more important than all else & having all your thoughts, actions, plans, desires, etc., totally & completely ruled by it. "You shall have no other gods before me", says the Lord and Addiction does just that by making your DOC your god, giving your DOC lordship over your life, and the first step in that process is removing the Lord from His rightful place of supreme (and sole) authority in your life and replacing Him with your Drug of Choice.

Btw, your Addiction/Drug of Choice doesn't have to be a pharmaceutical compound.....it can be a person (boyfriend, girlfriend, spouse, 'crush', friend, celebrity, mentor, CHILD -- Anyone), a Job/Career, a hobby, exercise, body image/an aspect of yourself or others you're obsessed with (like perfect skin, good looks, etc), *Power*, even "good" things like volunteering or Church......ANYTHING can become an Idol (=Drug of Choice), one only needs to give it undue priority in their life, equal to or greater than God Most High.

Every single human being must struggle against Idolatry (Addiction) & the Enemy knows & plays/preys on our weakness.

Only Jesus saves......and the only way to Him is through true Repentance. ...and true Repentance garners the Lord's Forgiveness. ... and *continuing* to live in Jesus requires Holy and Righteous living - not Perfection, but continuous Course Correction of Confession, Repentance, Forgiveness and being Reconciled to the Lord Jesus, continually working on, and growing in, our relationship with Him.

It was no coincidence the Lord God began by walking in the Garden with Adam & Eve every single evening, after the day was done and before sleep. ('Don't go to bed angry', right?)

NOTHING is more important than our relationship with the Lord....and Addiction (Idolatry) is the opposite of that.

Jesus said it Himself, "I AM the Alpha & the Omega, the Beginning & the End."


My prayers are with you.

Wow, thanks for taking the time to share this with me. I agree that my addiction is ultimatly a spiritual sickness that I have to reckon with. I have to keep myself in fit spiritual condition, and remain humble before the lord God throughout the day whether I act rightly or wrongly. I must seek his forgivness for freedom from my guilt and also thank him for my victories. Thanks again and God bless.

Re: Prayer of deliverance for those struggeling with addiction.
I read this thread and didn't quite know what to say for encouragement. I believe we have to lean on our faith yet handle what is in our own control.

It came to me as I was taking my dog out for a walk. I was walking down a tight staircase to my front door and one of my big sneaker clad feet did not land properly on the step and the other stubbed into it and I started to pitch forward. Luckily I was holding the handrail which kept me steady and I did not fall.

G-d is my handrail and will protect me from my own missteps as long as I have the good sense to keep my hand on it.

Thank you for reminding me of my own complacency in recovery. I struggle with a different substance and behavior and I had recently lost my (metaphorical)balance because I was seeking pain relief.

Seek healthy distractions and keep busy. Stay as far away from your SOC as possible. Distance yourself emotionally from your enablers. Seek others in recovery for support and inspiration. Remember to be grateful for where you are and what you have. Set goals and reward yourself. You deserve to live a life free from substance abuse.

Preachy? Maybe a little. It's because I care and want you to succeed. G-d bless you with the strength, courage and wisdom you need for this challenge.
FIGHT!!! FOR YOUR LIFE

For those of you that are struggling with addiction. The Enemy is controlling you by your addiction. Fight to win no one likes to lose. As I right this the Enemy is trying to stop me from posting this because he doesn't want me to interfere with his plan. Fight like you've never fought before. Free yourself!!!!!!!

Re: Prayer of deliverance for those struggeling with addiction.
[googlevid]. I went to church as a little girl , but stopped going at about 10. When I entered my teen years I became a party girl. It was the late 60's early 70's. I dabbled in drugs and alcohol until my son was born in 1972. In 1978 I got divorced got a job in a restaurant. The party started again minus the drugs and I have been drinking ever since. It's a long story but 16 years ago I went back to church, even so the drinking continues till this day. Point is I love The Lord with all my heart. One night my prayer was, Lord please heal me from this addiction. I received an immediate response . I could do that Denise, but I want u to want me more than the alcohol . I was flabbergasted. I had read where people had said they talked to God. Honestly I thought they were nuts. In my heart tho I new this was the real deal. I am still struggling ,but I am convinced that one day I will have victory over this disease. And I will give God all the Glory !!!!!! Amen. Don't ever give up, ever. That is just what Satan wants. Yours in Christ.
