Make this addicted person a humble student
In the school of Christ,
Be their Teacher and Counselor,
Be their Comforter and Light,
Show Christ to their soul,
Lead them to the cross,
Make their textbook Your Word,
Show them Christ’s resurrected body—
The anatomy of holes in His hands
And in His deeply pierced side.
Open their eyes to see their sins
And that the just punishment
For them is eternal death,
Yet You have poured out Your mercy by
Allowing Your Son to pay for those sins
With Your blood—
Plus adding faith and love.
Open their understanding to Scripture,
And reveal the mystery of the Trinity,
Awaken them to the truth
That life is a gift to be cherished,
Assign them a new craving—
To know You more,
Bless them with cheerful thoughts,
Steered away from their fixations,
Break the enchantment of their addictions
And deliver them from their vexations.
In Christ’s Name, Amen.
