Therefore, whether you eat or drink,
or whatever you do,
do all to the glory of God.
- I Corinthians 10:31.
Lord, I pray that you would keep David and Elizabeth free from any addiction - especially to alcohol or drugs. Make them strong in You, draw them close and enable them to put You in control of their lives. Speak to their hearts, show them the path they should walk, and help them see that protecting their bodies from things that destroy is part of their service to You.
I pray that You, Lord, would thwart any plan Satan has to destroy their lives through alcohol and drugs, and take away anything in their personality that would be drawn to those substances. Your Word says, "There is a way that seems right to to a man, but its end is the way of death" (Proverbs 16:25). Give them discernment and strength to be able to say "no" to things that bring death and "yes" to the things of God that bring life. May they clearly see the truth wherever tempted and be delivered from the evil one whenever trapped. Enable them to choose life in whatever they do, and may their only addiction be to the things of God.
In Jesus' name I pray that everything they do with their bodies be done for Your glory. Amen.*
I have set before you life and death,
blessing and cursing;
therefore choose life,
that both you and your descendants may live.
- Deuteronomy 30:19
Therefore if the Son makes you free,
you shall be free indeed.
- John 8:36.
