Power In Prayer



The  power  of  an  addiction, to a substance or  a  person,  introduces  an absence  and  a  coldness  of feeling within. It seems to me, the body has bones  and a heart but emotional connection to others shuts  down.  So then does their awareness of God/Spirit opportunities  or  of  divine  appointed possibilities that disappear over the horizon.

The hunger of the substance, or person, takes over. To combat the heartache of this occurrence, we spiritual believers offer up fervent prayer. The outcome  of the situation is entirely in God’s loving hands and we are expected to take our  hands  off  our  loved ones,for our God to touch their lives with mercy and  compassion.

It  may take  a  long  time  and his  answer may not be the one you expect but it  will  be  his.The situation, either way, will be tough or a setting free with trust and faith, as we abide in his faithful judgement of love.There is a hope however  in  Ezekiel, chapter  37, in a  promise of cleansing from our God. Verse 25 to 28.‘I will sprinkle clean water on you and you will be clean. I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols (substance or person abuse).

I will give you a new heart (of feeling emotions) and put a new spirit in you. I will receive from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.And I will put my spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws……….and I will be your God (verse 28).

Forgive  this  humble  writer  for  taking  this Biblical passage  somewhat out  of context but  this is also a prayerful hope for my own addicted loved ones.



with love and blessings.
