Using the Catholic Faith as Part of Recovery

Using the Catholic Faith as Part of Recovery


Prayer for Those in the Chains of Addiction

"God of mercy, we bless you in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ, who ministers to all who come to Him. Give your strength to all who are bound by the chains of addiction. Enfold them in your love and restore them to freedom through your grace.

Lord, look with compassion on all those who have lost their health and have broken relationships because of their attachment to the object of their addiction. 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 perseveres."
