We don’t have to look very far to find a righteous person. As Believers, we are the righteous. As Believers in recovery, we are on the front lines of a great spiritual war. We see the devastation of drugs and alcohol on families and communities. We see the lie that co-dependent behavior is normal and natural. We see lives torn apart by porn and sexual addiction. The prayers of the righteous are the greatest weapons we use in this spiritual war.
Without prayer, there can be no recovery. Prayer is the driving force for change and ongoing growth throughout the recovery process. Prayer is the most important thing we can do for those just entering recovery, as well as people who have been in recovery for years. Christ wants us all to pray for each other, for the needs of others. He also encourages us to ask others to pray for us. Our prayers can change our situations and make what appears to be impossible, possible.
Our prayers are powerful and effective. God hears our prayers and does the miraculous. People who were once walking dead are now free from the bondage of addiction because someone prayed for them. We pray for those who are now in recovery and all those who have not yet entered the rooms of recovery. We pray for each other in every situation, as together we travel this road to recovery. With prayer, we witness the power of God to heal and restore.
