Lord, I ask for forgiveness. Against you, O Lord, have I sinned. Forgive me for making drugs my god, and walk with me in my journey to recovery. Spread your wings of love that I may find refuge in you when the effects of withdrawal are intense. God of life, You made me in Your perfect image, to live in Your love and to give You glory, honor and praise. Open my heart to Your healing power. Be compassionate upon every one that is struggling with drugs and help them to fight this until they become victorious. Quench the desire for narcotics from our hearts and heal our bodies from any damage. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

St Jude, most holy Apostle, in my need I reach out to you. I beg you to intercede for me that I may find strength to overcome my illness. Bless all those who struggle with addiction. Touch them, heal them, reassure them of the Father’s constant love.

Remain at my side, St Jude, to chase away all evil temptations, fears, and doubts. May the quiet assurance of your loving presence illuminate the darkness in my heart and bring lasting peace.
