Quitting Addiction Prayer
Lord God this prayer is sent to you in a time of absolute need. I know you will never turn your back on those who ask for help. I trust in you Lord with all my heart and I know that you will hear this prayer and come to my aid.
I need you now like no other time in my life. I need strength and you are the source of all strength, Lord. You are Love and kindness and you have time for all your flock no matter how lowly and no matter how they have trespassed against you.
Hear this prayer to quit addiction from one who loves you God, and who needs your help most desperately right now.
Addiction is a terrible affliction and I am in the grip of this addiction now and trying so hard to turn my life around and to take control. I need all the help I can get just to get through the hours and the days ahead.
I am weak without you Lord, I need to feel your presence and feel that I am strong every minute of every day with you at my side.
I can rely on you to hold me up and guide me Lord to help me to help myself.
You know that I want to be free of this demon in my life. I have always been prey to its grip and I need to finally and once and for all be free of it. I need to make amends to those I have hurt through my fixation on this addiction.
I am willing to do the work to fight this disease, this desperate need, but I need you by my side, Lord, helping me at every step. I know you are full of kindness and wisdom and you will stay by me as I ask you, Lord.
There are people around me I can turn to, but none have the power to help me as you do Lord. Stay with me day and night and help me with every step, walk more towards you and away from this addiction.
You know Lord that this is an illness and I know that you tend to the sick without prejudice. Whilst your Son Jesus walked this earth he tended the sick and the poor, he cures the lepers who were shunned by society.
I feel shunned by people often because most do not understand me. I am left feeling that my addiction is not understood by most people.
I feel that people do not see the inner torment or appreciate what it is I struggle with. People can feel superior and think that I am weak and this makes the cycle of my addiction harder to bear. I know you hear my inner thoughts Lord, I know that you hear my struggle and that you know I want to do better.
At times I feel the weight of people’s judgment so much that I agree with their perception of me that I am weak and useless and that I might as well give in to temptation as I am already written off.
Often this feeling of worthlessness drowns me and I take refuge in my addiction which absorbs me and takes me away from any true path. This vicious cycle grips me and I feel powerless against it.
Dear Lord, help those who judge me and others so harshly become softer in their hearts, help them to see that this is so tough and not an easy thing to change. This prayer to quit an addiction is for them too so that they become more understanding and supportive. Everyone deserves your love and help Lord.
God help me stay away from those who lead me into temptation, for as you say ‘bad company ruins good morals’.
I know I am weak and I cannot blame others for the troubles I am in but I do know that there are those who are not trying to help me overcome my addiction but rather are content for me to be in my addiction for they too are lost to it.
Help me seek out those who are supportive of my recovery and who understand that I do not do well with temptation at the moment. I need to build up my strength and resistance and that faith in myself necessary to beat this. Help me become stronger every day. Help me to see that I am worth saving and that I have a life outside of the addiction.
Lord, I do know that I have to face these demons, that I have to be strong in the face of temptation and to move forward with my life. Strengthen my resolve and help me build good habits so that this gets easier God.
I know that you understand how difficult this is for me and how much I am trying.I know that it has to come from my devout intent and my commitment to be clear of this addiction and there are times when that is much harder than others.
Help me when I falter to get back up again, to forgive myself, to believe in myself. Help me see a way forward and a life that is addiction-free. Help me to learn to put others first as you bade us do and to realize other people need me free of this addiction too.
It is easy to fall prey to this addiction and I realize I am not alone there are others who are trying to beat it and I draw strength in seeing them succeed.
I too want to succeed and know I can do this with you by my side Lord.
I praise you God for all your patience and love. I know that you love me Lord and that warms my soul.
I accept your love and I want to honor you by living the way you want me to, free of this addiction.
I know that you want me to be happy Lord and you want to see me living a life that is full and happy. Help me now Lord to face the days that are incredibly tough and I will reach out to you daily with this prayer so that you know how grateful I am for your presence Lord.
Stay with me Lord as I fight this and become whole again and am able to bask freely in your love and walk your path.
Lord hear my prayer.

Scripture to Quit Addiction
“No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.”
A very heartwarming piece of text from the Corinthians that echoes the spirit of the sentient that the Lord will never give you more than you can carry in a burden. It can feel like you are drowning and are overwhelmed, but this is something the Lord knows you can overcome. Your prayers are not alone is the key message of this piece others have been there and can help you.
Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.”
“More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.”
Suffering produces endurance, you will become stronger through this. God will not give you more than you can carry, you must believe that. God loves us and will help us when we ask him too. This addiction is terrible to endure and to beat, God will be with you if you ask him.
