May Matt Talbot's triumph over addiction,
brings hope to our community
and strength to our hearts,
may he intercede for all
who struggle with drug addiction,
through Christ Our Lord.
Amen.

God of mercy, we bless You in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ, who ministers to all who come to Him.

Give Your strength to those who are bound by the chains of addiction.

Enfold them in Your love and restore them to the freedom of God's children.

Lord, look with compassion on all those who have lost their health and freedom.

Restore to them the assurance of Your unfailing mercy, and strengthen them in the work of recovery.

To those who care for them, grant patient understanding and a love that perseveres.

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Found this online - apparently a prayer that Matt Talbot used to pray regularly:

O Virgin, I only ask three things: the Grace of God, the Presence of God, the Benediction of God.
