Encouragement Prayer

God of unfailing love, I bless you in the name of your son, Jesus Christ, who ministered to all who come to him. Encourage me to continue to face every minute of every day that I want to use drugs/alcohol to get me through the day. Guide me to stand up against the constant urges to give in. Wrap me in your warm love and free my mind and body from these unhealthy needs. Reassure me that being clean is your will for me. Plant firmly in my mind that I first need to be clean to restore my health and my broken relationships. Strengthen me in the work of recovery. To those who care for me, grant them patient understanding and a love for me that perseveres. Father, I ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
