A prayer for addiction...

O blessed Lord, you ministered to all who came to you:

Look with compassion upon all who through addiction have lost their health and freedom.

Restore to them the assurance of your unfailing mercy;

remove from them the fears that beset them; strengthen them in the work of their recovery;

and to those who care for them, give patient understanding and persevering love.

Amen. (Adapted from the Book of Common Prayer - 56)
