Step 3 Free Christian Addiction Treatment Program

Step 3 Free Christian Addiction Treatment Program

Step 3
Pray Everyday
Pray without ceasing. (1 Thessalonians 5:17)

Therefore commit to praying each day until you break free from the addictive behavior and continue praying to ensure you remain free for the rest of your life.

If you have never done it, prayer is simply talking to God by telling Him your problems, asking Him for His help and thanking Him for the blessings in your life.

Ensure that as you pray you believe that God can help you overcome the addiction because Jesus repeatedly told people in the Bible who were healed, “Your faith has made you well.” For example He said it to Bartimaeus in Mark 10:52, to the leper in Luke 17:19 and to the woman with the bleeding disorder in Mark 5:34.

This woman had suffered for 12 years from her disease and she had become broke because of moving from specialist to specialist seeking treatment. However, she kept her faith alive by believing that Jesus could heal her even if many specialists had failed.

Therefore continue believing that Jesus can heal you regardless of how long you have suffered with the addiction and regardless of the number of addiction treatment specialists you have seen in the numerous programs you have attended.

Believing that God can help you can overcome the addiction is also how you hold up the shield of faith which is the Christian spiritual warfare weapon that is able to put off all the fiery darts fired by the enemy into your life. (Ephesians 6:14-17) These darts fired by the enemy might include doubts that you can free of this addictive behavior.

Prayers that you can say to help you overcome the addiction include:
1. Father God I ask You in the name of Jesus to strengthen me so that I will not be overcome by the urge to engage in the addictive behavior. Help me so that I can replace it with a good habit. (Adapted Romans 12:21)

2. Father God I ask You in the name of Jesus to help me so that I may always see the way of escape when I am tempted to engage in the addictive behavior. Strengthen me so that when I see it I can take it and overcome the temptation. (Adapted 1 Corinthians 10:13)

3. Father God I ask You in the name of Jesus to Direct my steps by Your word and not to let this addictive behavior dominate my life. (Adapted Psalm 119:133)
  
Pray without ceasing. (1 Thessalonians 5:17)

Above all take the shield of faith with which you will be able to put out all the fiery darts of the wicked one Ephesians 6:16


Direct my steps with your word and do not let sin dominate my life Psalm 119:133

Write Down Your Reasons
Write down all the reasons why you want to stop engaging in the addictive behavior at the back of your Stop Addiction Diary. This is very important because your personal convictions can strengthen your willpower and help you resist the temptation of engaging in the addictive behavior.

In addition, reduce the number of times you engage in the addictive behavior by 1/4. For example, if you used to engage in it 12 times a week at the beginning of this program, begin engaging in it 9 times a week from now on.
