7 Prayers for Deliverance from a Personal Addiction

Prayer to Remove All Temptation From My Addiction:

1 Corinthians 10:13 “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.”

Faithful Father,

I repent for what I’ve let my life become. I have not relied on you for joy and peace. I have tried to find true happiness in things that have harmed my body and my relationships with friends, family, and you. It seems everywhere I turn, the temptation to fall into my sin is there. Today I come to you today with a humble heart, asking for your help in removing all temptation from my addiction. I have struggled with this addiction for some time now, and I know that I cannot overcome it on my own.

Please empower me with the Holy Spirit and give me the strength to resist any urges or cravings that may come my way. Help me to stay focused on my path toward recovery and to make positive choices that will benefit my health and well-being. I know you understand temptation because Jesus was tempted in all things of the flesh and he never sinned.

I ask that you remove any negative influences from my life that may lead me back down the path of addiction. Help me to surround myself with positive and supportive people who will encourage me in my journey. Help me stay committed to reading and living Your Word.

Mark 14:38 “Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

Please guide me towards healthier habits and activities that will bring joy and fulfillment to my life. Show me the path towards healing and wholeness, and give me the courage to walk that path with faith and determination.

Thank you for your love and guidance, and for always being there for me in my times of need. I trust in your power to help me overcome this addiction, and I know that with your help, anything is possible.


Matthew 26:41 “Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

Prayer for My Broken Relationships as a Result of My Addiction:

Deuteronomy 31:6 “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Lord Jesus, I am in great need for your help. Please deliver me from the spirit of addiction. I trust you deliver me and never put me to shame. Shame has engulfed me to the point of paralysis. Pull me out of the web of substance abuse (name substance/activity to overcome), for you are my strength. I have tried on my own but have continued to fail. I am at the point of desperation. Remove my appetite for the substance. Remove all the temptation. Help me stand firm when faced with opportunities to consume and abuse. Remove the friends and acquaintenances who aren’t condusive to my recovery.

Lord, I recognized that my substance abuse has fractured my relationships with friends and family. I miss the relationships that should be in my life. Heal me both in my addictions and in my relationships. I pray my friends and family are supportive in my recovery and in the mending process. Please have them regain their trust in me and my ability to follow through on promises and actions. I need their support and unconditional love.

It is my desire to live a pure life and to glorify your name for the rest of my life. My hope is in the mighty name of Jesus. I believe and pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Heavenly Father

I repent for abusing this body you have given me. I acknowledge that my body is a gift from you, and I am called to treat them with respect and honor. Yet, I have knowingly or unknowingly harmed ourselves through unhealthy habits, addictions, neglect, or abuse.

I ask for your forgiveness and healing for the damage I have caused to my body, mind, and spirit. I ask that you renew me with your grace, mercy, and love, so that I may honor you with my body and glorify you in all I do.

Prayer to Find the Best Addiction Support Group With Accountability Partners:

Psalm 32:8 “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.”

Dear God,

I am ready to make a change in my life. Your Holy Spirit has convicted me of the life I was leading and how it did not glorify you. You have given us brothers and sisters in Christ. My prayer today is the desire to connect with one or more of them who understands the life of an addict. I seek guidance and support as I search for a support group with accountability partners to help me in my struggles and challenges.

I know that I cannot do everything alone, and I need the support and encouragement of others who share my struggles and can hold me accountable to my goals and commitments.

I ask that you guide me to the right support group that is aligned with my values, goals, and needs. May this group be a safe and supportive community where I can share our challenges, joys, and victories with others who understand and support me. I pray that the group is Christ-centered and recovery follows the principles and truths of your Word. May these partners be wise, compassionate, and committed to helping me grow and succeed.

2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.”

It is my desire to live a pure life and to glorify your name for the rest of my life. My hope is in the mighty name of Jesus. I believe and pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Proverbs 27:17 “Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.”

Dear God,

We come to you with humble hearts, asking for your guidance and wisdom as we seek to understand the root cause of addiction in our lives.

We acknowledge that addiction is a complex and multifaceted issue that has its roots in various factors such as trauma, stress, genetics, environment, and spiritual emptiness.

We ask that you help us to identify the root cause of addiction in our lives, whether it be unresolved emotional wounds, unhealthy coping mechanisms, spiritual disconnection, or other factors.

We ask for your healing and transformative power to address the root cause of addiction and restore us to wholeness and peace. May your love and grace provide us with the strength and courage to face our struggles and overcome them.

We pray for the support and guidance of others who can help us on this journey, including counselors, therapists, and spiritual leaders. May they provide us with wisdom, compassion, and support as we seek to heal and grow.

We offer these prayers in faith and trust that you will guide us towards healing, growth, and freedom from addiction. Amen.

My world is pretty dark right now. I am feeling defeated and hopeless. You have shown me what I need to do, but I struggle to follow through. Is there any hope for me or my future? I have hurt so many people with my lifestyle. I have lost so many precious moments that I can never recover. I come to you today seeking hope in my life. I feel lost, alone, and helpless, and I know that I cannot overcome this addiction on my own.

Please give me the strength and courage to face each day with hope in my heart. Help me to see the light at the end of the tunnel and to believe that there is a better future waiting for me.

I trust in your infinite wisdom and love, and I know that with your guidance and support, I can overcome this addiction and live a life filled with hope, joy, and purpose.

Thank you for your unending love and compassion, and for always being there for me in my times of need. Amen
