I am trying to quit smoking


Hi everyone. I need your prayers. I am trying to quit smoking. I bought a couple of big packs of gum to help me get through the cravings. Please pray that I would be successful at quitting.


Holly, I’ll be praying for you.


Thank you FickleFreckled. :slight_smile:


and ill be praying for you too. :slight_smile:


Lifting your intentions up in prayers to Jesus! :gopray2:


I quit so I know you can too. Wishing you success and praying for it too. When you have the urge to pick one up say an Our Father. It helps.

Lord Jesus,You said,
"I have come to set the captives free."
Holly3278 is a captive of tobacco and needs Your healing touch.
Free her, Lord, from her addiction, so that she will be:
…free from the cares and worries that block her happiness;
…free from sins that cling to her and to which she clings;
…free from smoking amd that which prevents her from becoming what You, Lord,
have planned for her.

May Christ’s peace be with you


Glory be to The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit
As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be
World without end



Our Father, who art in Heaven,
hallowed be Thy Name;
Thy kingdom come;
Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.


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.


Hey, Holly, how’s it going? Praying…


Lord Jesus, I ask you, in all your mercy, to fill up Thy servant, Holly, with courage and perseverance to fight her addiction to tobacco. Help her to abandon this addiction and become healthy and strong in order to be able to take up any crosses that You send her way. Help her to serve you, free from the battle of constant cravings. In Your name, we pray. Amen.
