A Prayer For Your Child To Avoid Drugs, Alcohol, & Other Deadly Addictions

There are many things that can make a parent shudder- and one of those things is imagining their child addicted to a harmful substance. We love and care for our children. We want them to have the very best life they can and influence the world for the better. In today’s world, harmful substances can seem like the norm. It’s plastered on TV, in music, and in movies. However, our prayers matter and they work. Below is a prayer for your child to avoid drugs, alcohol, and other deadly addictions.

While many people imagine that drugs and alcohol are the only things that can cause harmful addictions, that’s not true. The number one cause of death worldwide is heart disease. Therefore, we should pray against the addiction of harmful foods and for our children to remain healthy and have a desire to live a healthy lifestyle.

For Boys

Lord,

I pray to You for my child, (name of child).

Keep him from any harmful addictions including alcohol or drugs.

May he find his strength in You and present his body as a living sacrifice unto You.

Let him glorify You in everything he does.

Any plans that the enemy has for my child’s life, I ask that You ruin them and get in the way.

Remove anything that would influence him to go down a life of darkness and despair.

Give him discernment to correct say “no” to things that would harm him and say “yes” to the things You’ve sent his way.

Give him eyes to see the truth. Deliver him from the evil one.

I pray his only addictions be to the things of God.

Thank You for all You do.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
