Words Of Encouragement
Our peaceful reality is shaken to the core when we discover that our child is in bondage to the evil power of drugs.
We feel as if they are slowly slipping away.
The helplessness that engulfs us as parents, as well as the entire family, is paralyzing unless we give it all to God.
The demons that consume drug addicts are powerful. That power is weak in comparison to the healing power from our heavenly Father.
Nothing is too big or too small for Him to handle.
He will reach His hand down and pull a person up and out of the grip of addiction!
Do you have a son who is struggling with a dependence on drugs?
You can turn to our Savior, who is entirely in control and will restore your son’s life.
If therefore the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:36
Prayer For Son On Drugs
Dear Father in Heaven,
I come to you today to thank you for the blessing of my son. I love him so very much, and it’s through my pain and inability to conquer his addiction that I lay myself at your feet.
Please forgive me for not recognizing or seeing the signs of his drug problem beginning.
Forgive me for the guilt that has enveloped me.
I can’t help but feel that I have failed as a parent in some way.
Lord, only you know my son’s heart and the reason behind his addiction.
I pray for a heavy conviction upon his heart. Give him eyes to fully see his situation and the will to overcome.
to open the blind eyes, to bring the prisoners out of the dungeon, and those who sit in darkness out of the prison. Isaiah 42:7
Please don’t let the evil one have victory over his physical body nor his mind.
Please help each of my family members to find the strength to support my son in prayer while encouraging him with uplifting words.
Help each of us to fully love him and forgive us when we give way to blame, fear, worry, and anger.
We know these things are not Godly.
Fill us with love, compassion, forgiveness, and most of all, faith in your miraculous healing.
Your timing is perfect, and we trust in your plan for our son.
Help us to have patience in that timing and to know that even though we are in the middle of a mess, you are here with us.
Father, I pray that you protect every part of my son’s body and mind. Please wash through his entire body with your cleansing power and flush the drugs out.
Cleanse his mind of any desire to feed his addiction and pull him up, and out of this darkness, he is in. Help him to feel your firm hand wrapped around his.
I pray that you will prevent him from succumbing to remorse, anger, and blame. Equip his heart to trust you.
As the addiction releases its control over him, please send your Spirit to strengthen him.
Guide us, Lord, as we travel this unknown path that is before us. You are in control, Lord, and we trust you.
I pray these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
