Many of those who participate in A Prayer Every Day share with me the addictions they would like to escape from. Here is one of these testimonies: "I suffer enormously from an addiction which is cigarettes, and I cannot make my decision to let go and abandon everything in the hands of God; I lack strength and courage."
Whether it is cigarettes, alcohol, pornography, or other addictions, today we want to pray for you. You who are concerned about these things, pray thanking God that thousands of brothers and sisters are with you in prayer for your deliverance. We are not judges, but loving intercessors for you.
Pray that God will give you the will to throw away your cigarettes, your alcohol, your impure magazines... Separate yourself from what binds you, and thank God for what he does.
We pray for you, but this morning pray, yourselves, saying:
“Lord, thank you for all those who pray for me today. I proclaim that Jesus my Savior has accomplished everything to set me free.
My refuge is no longer in this dependence; It's not alcohol, nor cigarettes, nor anything else that is my refuge, it's Jesus.
Thank you Lord for this victory that you give me this day, in the name of Jesus, amen!”
