Wonderful Counselor (prayer)

Is(This is an intercessory prayer for persons suffering from addiction.)

Holy Father,

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—

Satisfying justice,

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.
