The season of Advent is an ideal time to focus on preparing yourself spiritually: for the coming of Christ, and for the recovery road that lies ahead of you. Prayer equips us for life’s journey, wherever that journey may take us. This Advent season as you pray about your journey, invite God to help you succeed in each area of your life: personal growth, physical health, relationships, career trajectories, and addiction recovery.
Scriptures for Prayer About Addiction Recovery
If you feel “stuck” in your prayers and need a new approach to your daily prayer journey, begin by praying through scripture. God offers help and hope in his Word, and scripture tells us that his Word will not return void—but will accomplish that for which it was purposed. (Isaiah 55:11) Scriptures to consider as you pray this Christmas season:
Prayers that God would allow you to see the dangers of your addiction.
Prayers for the ability to abstain from alcohol and drugs.
Prayers for freedom from the bondage of addiction.
Prayers to embrace your new life in Christ in the coming year.
Prayers to communicate well, forgive others, and work toward mending the broken relationships that result from addiction.
This Advent season, may you find hope and peace in knowing that the God of the universe walks with you throughout addiction recovery and beyond. To learn more about how journeying with Jesus during rehab, call 877.310.9545 to speak with our free, Christian-based treatment consultants.
