Blessed Matt Talbot
Prayer for the Addicted
God of mercy, give Your strength to me
who is bound by the chains of addiction.
Enfold him in Your love and restore him
to sobriety. Lord, look with compassion
on all those who have lost their health
and freedom to alcohol and drugs.
Restore to them the assurance of Your
unfailing mercy, and strengthen them in
the work of recovery.
To those who care for them, grant patient understanding
and a love that persevers.
