Prayer For Someone To Stop Drinking Alcohol

Oftentimes, we want to pray for someone to stop drinking alcohol, but we don't know how to go about it. Here's a prayer to guide you on doing so.

Prayer For Someone To Stop Drinking Alcohol
I recently discovered that alcohol is something even the unsaved desires to stop drinking or have their loved one stop taking (surprisingly). 

So let's assume that everyone [at least] knows that taking alcohol isn't healthy and being a binge drinker isn't the best life to live. 

The Bible makes it clear that strong drink (alcohol) can have people doing things they normally wouldn't want to do if they were not under its influence. 

Proverbs 31:4-6 KJV
It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine; nor for princes strong drink: [5] Lest they drink, and forget the law, and pervert the judgment of any of the afflicted. [6] Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts.

Spiritually and health-wise, alcohol has proven to be very destructive; doing more harm than good. Alcohol has cut many destinies short. It has gotten people into committing imprisonable crimes. It has changed people from being great to being miserable. 

Proverbs 20:1 KJV
Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.

The menace of alcohol is truly life-threatening; in fact, it has cost people their lives. If you want to know more on why a Christian (or anyone) shouldn't drink alcohol, read this article:


Praying For Alcoholics


The habit of drinking alcohol gradually becomes an addiction that slowly eats people up towards their destruction. 

If it is true that we all understand that indulgence in alcoholism is something that should be discouraged and fought against, then we would do more than advising people against alcohol. 

There are things that the right counselling could not help prevent. That is where prayer comes in. That is why people need a prayer to stop drinking alcohol, which is what this article is all about. 

If you or any of your loved ones really need to stop drinking alcohol, I believe these prayers are for you.
