Prayer for Citizens in My Community:
1 John 2:16 “For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world.”
Father, it is with a heavy heart that I come to you to ask for your divine help with the ravages of drug, alcohol, sex, and porn addictions in our community. We are living in troubled times, and I realize that it is going to take your intervention to accomplish this. I am asking that you quench the cravings for these substances from his lips and lives of all individuals in my community and country. We know that addictions are just a way to fill a void in a life. I ask that you fill each person’s cravings and fill the void with the Word of God.
Lord, I ask that you touch the heart of those individuals who are supplying these substances to citizens of my city. Remove the shingles from their eyes to see the destruction they are causing in the lives of the abuser as well as the friends and families of those who are using the substances. Close the door to the availability of the substances. I humbly ask that soldiers for Christ minister to the dealers, showing them the way, the truth, and the light. The fields are ripe for harvest. We know that part of the solution to drugs and other substances in our community is to stop the availability. That can only be done through your divine intervention.
1 Peter 5:8
“Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.”
Lord, you know those who are living in the prison on addictions. Satan’s ultimate plan is to destroy all that God created. He comes to kill, steal, and destroy. John 10:10. I come to
You to pray for all who suffer from any form of addiction. Lord, you came to set prisoners and sinners free from their bonds. Therefore, I raise before Your throne of grace all those who have become addicts. We all know those who are bound by a curse. Look with compassion on all who suffer from addictions of all kinds and send help and freedom to all who receive help. Give wisdom to their families and caregivers so they can get support and help get them back on the road to recovery.
Heavenly Father, I pray for the health of my community. I know such will allow our city to thrive. Our children and families will be grounded and bonded in your Mighty Name.
I ask all in Jesus’ name. Amen
Prayer to Break the Spirit of Lust and Sexual Sin:
Romans 12:2 “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”
Dear God, our culture is being inundated with lust, prostitution, and pornography. The internet has helped contribute to this explosive growth. I see the effects in my community. I come before you today to ask for your help in breaking the spirit of lust and sexual sin that has been affecting the thoughts and actions of citizens in my community. I know that this desire is not in alignment with your plan for the citizens, and it has been causing pain and harm to all aspects of our city. I see marriages, families, and businesses being destroyed. Only you can rescue our city, churches, homes, and families.
I am asking that you intervene and empower the affected citizens to turn away from this destructive path and to seek your guidance and strength. This epidemic is problematic across all races, sexes, and socio-economic groups. It is even growing in among your believers. Please send workers and resources to help those involved in this industry.
Lord, protect our children also. It seems the world is determined to sexualize our children. Put your guard around their hearts and minds to protect them for those who plan to use them to no good.
With a humble heart, I seek God’s protection. Amen
Colossians 3:5 “Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.?
