Default Prayer for Release from Alcohol or Drug Addiction

This is from the Divine Mercy handbook on page 74 http://www.divinemercy.org/component...ategory_id=13: - it is a book worth purchasing:

Prayer for the Release of a Loved One from Alcohol or Drug Addiction Through the Divine Mercy and Blood of Jesus

Lord Jesus, I put myself into Your hands this day. I ask You, with all my heart, to cure the terrible addiction to alcohol (drugs) in (name the person). Create in them an intolerance for alcohol (drugs) that will prevent them ever offending those who love them again. And grant their loved ones the grace to forgive them for all the hurt they have caused. Through the Divine Mercy and blood of Jesus, I also pray that they will be healed of all withdrawal symptoms of this terrible affliction. I sincerely ask this, in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Amen! There are some good people locked in the grip of a chronic, progressive and fatal disease. We pray for their release from it and healing for their families.

Saint Maximilian Kolbe is patron saint of those with addiction, right?

Watch, O Lord, with those who wake, or watch, or weep tonight,
and give Your angels and saints charge over those who sleep.

Tend Your sick ones, O Lord Christ.
Rest Your weary ones.
Bless Your dying ones.
Soothe Your suffering ones.
Pity Your afflicted ones.
Shield Your joyous ones, and all for Your love's sake.
Amen.

Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb,
Jesus.
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of death.

Amen
