10 Prayers Against Addiction

In Psalm 27 David speaks of God as his light and his salvation. He also sees God as his stronghold. As Spiritual Christian entities blessed with this miraculous physical body that enables us to carry out our ministry on earth, we sometimes fall victim to the vices of this world.

There are certain things that make the physical being that we inhabit excited. Some people love the sensation of smoking because it helps them cope with some physical discomforts. Some people eat to try and avoid feeling anything physically especially when they are in pain.

There are habits people get in when they are trying to avoid certain physical unpleasantness. It’s a vice that helps them physically escape the torture of pain. The devil uses these habits to get people under his control. He plants them as a source of physical relief to these people.

Prayers against addiction are meant to harness the spiritual being in us and galvanize it to fight the urges of the physical body.

God is our stronghold. The Holy Spirit dwells with our spirit and gives us the strength to fight these addictions from within. When your spirit is strengthened to be disciplined the body will follow suit. Addiction occurs when the body leads the spirit.

As Christians, this should not be the case. The spirit must be stronger than the body and it must control it. God wants us to be well and he has already given us all we need to be victorious. We just need to feed the spirit and make it grow so that it will take dominion over our body.

When you feed the body and neglect the spirit, the body will tell you what you need and since the body is not meant to be ever filled you will become an addict. Pray these prayers with faith and conviction that God wants you to be glorious and victorious in your fight against addiction.
