God of heaven’s armies, I know that you understand me. You have carried me in the hardest times. Only you have seen each despairing moment and only you have walked beside me. Now I ask that you, with your gentle, healing hands would lead me away from my drug/alcohol addiction. Cover my mind and body as I face the withdrawal and the strong cravings. Fill my heart with songs of hope. Help me to see what you can already see: me, cleansed of all brokenness, free to live and love, restored and redeemed. Amen.
