Heavenly Father,

I come before You today with a humbled heart, seeking Your grace and mercy. Thank you for the boundless love You have for me, and for always being my strength in times of need. Lord, You know the depths of my struggle with addiction, the battles I face each day, and the moments of weakness that seem overwhelming. I acknowledge that I cannot do this alone, and I surrender my burdens to You.

Guided by Your light, I embark on the journey of recovery. Help me to heal, Lord. Grant me the courage to embrace each day with optimism and determination. Surround me with supportive and loving individuals who will uplift me and provide the encouragement I need. May Your wisdom guide my decisions and Your strength fortify my resolve to grow each day in sobriety and health.

Lift from my shoulders the shame and guilt that accompany my past, and replace them with hope and self-forgiveness. Let Your love remind me of my worth and potential, untouched by the shadows of addiction. Allow me to transform my trials into testimonies of Your grace and power, becoming a source of inspiration for others facing similar struggles.

Bless me with the resilience to overcome temptations and the wisdom to seek help when needed. May Your peace fill my heart and Your joy renew my spirit. Let my life be a testament to the miraculous changes that Your love, strength, and guidance can bring.

In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
