God of Mercy, I come to You on behalf of my loved one who is in the chains of alcoholism. Lord, please guide me regarding how to intervene. Remind me, Lord, to allow my loved one to take responsibility for their behavior, rather than making excuses or covering things up. Lord, I know that I’m not to blame and there’s nothing that I can do to force change. So I depend on the convicting power of Your Holy Spirit to draw my loved one to Yourself. Amen.
