Addiction and Recovery Prayers  


 Abby

Prayer for Release from Addiction
by Abby Willowroot © 2008

Addiction has siezed my soul
and I am in pain . . . hollow inside,
control of myself and my life is gone,
but, I pretend  that I am still in control,
fear and rage mingle inside me, 
pushing anyone who loves me away,
isolating me in my prison of drugs,
a prison of regret, shame and grief.
I live in the past  . . . and I live in the future,
right now is a nightmare . . . and I can't wake up.

Release me from my own addiction,
open my heart to hope and life, 
open my eyes to see, I can escape into recovery. 
Make me dare to be willing . . . to let go of drugs,
to let go of fear . . . self hatred  . . .and shame,
help me let go of hopelessness.

help me let go of people who drag me down,
I want to leave people who use drugs behind.

help me recognize those who really love me,
and cling to them for dear life . . . for my life,
help me to know that I can have a different life,
a happy life . . . a dope free life . . . with hope.

Today I will sleep . . . as much as I need to,
today I will eat . . . and nurture my body, 
today I will wash my body, and hair,
today I will brush my teeth and get dressed,
today, I will do one thing , that is  . . ."normal",
I will fight to trust myself . . . to be able to do,
these simple things to help myself ,
and begin my return to sanity. 

 A different life . . . worth living, is waiting for me,
life is . . . waiting for me to put down the drugs,
life is . . . waiting for me to believe I can change,
life is . . . waiting for me to allow myself to win,
life is . . . ready to help me allow myself to smile, to feel hope,
I want this life . . .  I will have to fight like hell to get to.

I am willing, I am willing, I am willing to win !!! 
I am willing to be strong enough . . . to walk away,
I am ready to be strong enough . . . to ask for help,
I am ready to put down the drugs . . . that are killing me,
I want to be free . . . of drugs and delusions. 

Help me to be willing . . . to change,
May my courage grow, and my spirit soar,
my heart open . . .  my fears grow weaker,
I am ready for a life . . . without drugs,

I pray . . . help me, to help myself today,
awaken me . . . from this nightmare hell,
Help my heart to know  . . . that hope is possible,
and grow that hope within me . . . now !!!

I am ready . . . I am ready . . . I am ready . . .
to heal my body . . . my mind . . . my spirit . . . my life, 
drugs are my past . . . they are NOT my future !!!

for today . . . I will not use drugs,
today . . . I am becoming whole,
today . . . I am becoming my best self,
one step at a time . . . one second at a time,
one thought at a time . . . one action at a time,
I am escaping this loaded nightmare from hell.

No matter who you are, or what you have done, you have a right to recover.

~ Prayer for Hope ~

There is Hope . . . even if I cannot see it yet
there is a different life possible . . . even now

a life where my brain does not burn
a life with No hallucinations
a life where I am happy and free
there is Hope . . . even if I cannot see it yet

I have been a prisoner
I have been a slave to drugs
I have been high and crashed
again and again . . . and again
each time worse than the last

I am weary . . . and sad
anger has been my companion
rage often bubbles within me
ugly gifts of the dope

"Hope . . . are you still there?"

Yes, Hope is here . . . put the dope down
and you will see me . . . and feel me within you
you have been in pain . . . for way too long
Hope can heal you . . . if you let it

You deserve forgiveness and freedom
no matter what you have done in the past
You deserve hope and recovery . . . and peace
put the dope down now . . . and ask for help
You deserve to be free . . . and safe now
Hope will replace shame within you

Today . . .

 Today . . . I am clean and sober

Today . . . I move toward my future

Tofay . . . I am further from my past

Today . . . I am learning to live again

Today . . . it is getting a little easier 

Today . . . is not perfect, but it is better

Today . . . I am learning to value myself

Tomorrow . . . will build on what I do Today 

Today  . . . I am grateful to be alive

My Recovery Prayer

Today, I heal my body,
my mind, my spirit, my life,
drugs are a part of my past
they are not part of my now . . .
they are not part of my future . . .
today, I am clean and free

Today, I am becoming strong
one second at a time . . .
one thought at a time . . .
one action at a time . . .
I am learning how to live  . . .
and be the best parts of me
today, I am clean and free

PETTINESS PRAYER

The Pettiness Prayer is in the public domain, and is used in many 12 step programs

Keep us, oh God, from pettiness.
Let us be large in thought, in word, in deed.
Let us be done with fault finding & leave off self-seeking.
May we put away all pettiness & meet each other face to face,
without self-pity & without prejudice.

May we always be patient,
never hasty in judgement & always tolerant.
Teach us to put into action our better impulses,
straightforward & unafraid.

Let us take time for all things; make us calm, serene & gentle.
Grant that we may realize it is the little things
in life that create differences,
That in the big things of life we are as one and
may we strive to touch and to know the great common heart of us all.

And oh God, let us not forget to be kind.
