Prayer for Addiction
Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus.
Father, in the name of Jesus, I thank you for your great love and forgiveness that even in my inability to obey you, and even in my weaknesses and bondage’s you give me grace to escape sin and to escape addiction. You have given me grace so that I need not feel condemned. Thank you Jesus, because of what you did for me on the cross, I understand how much you love me and how much you desire to forgive me. I choose to receive your love Jesus as I love others. I choose to forgive all those that have hurt me Lord. All who have let me down or rejected or abused or betrayed me. All who have offended me and any whom I have bitterness towards. Jesus I give you the emotional pain I have been carrying which drives me to seek comfort in addiction and hide from your love. Jesus I ask that you grant me forgiveness toward all people, that I may be delivered from the tormentors. I know by my forgiveness toward others that you are able to forgive and deliver me also. I choose forgiveness God, from my very heart. Holy Spirit I ask your help in this–what I cannot forgive, I ask you to forgive through me. I ask for your love to supply my need that I no longer feel the need to turn to this addiction to find comfort. I give you these burdens Lord, I ask you to supply me with your Love, your grace, your mercy and to grant me repentance. As I do this Jesus I know you are with me and I can do all things in you, and through you. I do this by faith and commit this to you, and Lord, even though I may not feel like forgiving, I choose to forgive, and I trust in your grace and love to be able. (Asking God – His works – Faith)
1 Corinthians 6 19. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 20. For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
I am made strong in my weakness because as I turn to you, you can do what I cannot do. In myself I cannot, but I rise up in spirit, in you, so I can, by faith, in you Jesus. I make a choice to forgive Father, even if I don’t feel it. I ask you to give me a right heart. You are bigger than what I feel, I stand in your love not mine. I thank you for your grace to do it. I choose to let go of any un-forgiveness, bitterness, disappointment or unworthiness toward myself as well Lord. I know you have forgiven me as you you have forgiven others. I ask you to forgive me for any thing in which I have blamed you also God. I commit to you from my very heart and in truth the ability to let go of all un-forgiveness, wrath, offense and rejection and every other dark work, and ask you to fill up the emptiness that I feel because of these things and heal every defilement which drives me to turn to this addiction. I turn to you, and no longer to this addiction.
I give to you all past hurt, emotional pain, rejection, emotional abuse, physical abuse, worthlessness, hopelessness, despair, anxiety, worry, disappointment and fear and all depression, self pity and self justification. I ask you to fill these places of emptiness Jesus. These things which drive me to the false comfort of addiction(through un-forgiveness). These false comforts, these addictions, Lord I now know are lies and deceits and bondage. The comfort they offer is FALSE and always so temporary and just lead me to more bondage. I repent. I realize these addictions are driven by my vulnerabilities and weaknesses and by my inability to forgive and so be set free. I choose to show(sow) grace so I can receive(reap) your grace. I give you the burden of the emptiness I feel through these lies. I ask you to heal these places wherein the enemy is binding me to this torment. I choose to forgive, I receive your forgiveness Jesus.
Matthew 18 33. Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellow servant, even as I had pity on thee? 34. And his lord was wroth, and DELIVERED HIM TO THE TORMENTORS, till
he should pay all that was due unto him. 35. So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye FROM YOUR HEARTS forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.
Father I ask you to heal this driving emptiness that leads me to rely on the false temporary comfort of addiction and the cruel bondage and relentless lust of the tormentors driving it. I ask and pray for healing to these places of deep emotional hurt and pain and grief and emptiness. I seek you God. I seek the true permanent comfort that only you can give. I give you my need and ask you to fill it. I confess I will no longer be driven by this bondage to seek comfort and escape in this addiction. I forgive, and cast my burdens upon you. I ask for healing and I ask for deliverance. I turn to you for help. I rise up in love and abide in you. I cast my cares upon you.
Psalm 55:22 Cast your burden upon the LORD and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken.
Psalm 149:9 To execute upon them the judgement written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the Lord.
With authority in Jesus name, I come out of all agreement with this addiction and it’s false comforts. I remove all triggers and renounce all ungodly soul ties connected with it. I bind the strong man and every spirit involved with this addiction and command you to leave and not return. I execute the judgement written against you. Go now! In Jesus name! (do the same the very second it tries to return—- thoughts or feelings)
I receive my healing and now rest in you Lord knowing it is done. It is by faith and not by sight— and so I choose to now trust an believe you have answered my prayer and I wait patiently for it until I see it come to pass. I ask for faith Father to not waver from my confession. I trust you, I believe you, I rest in you. I trust in your Love. I abide in you. I know you have done it.
Thank you God, I give you the glory and the praise
In Jesus name, amen.
