DAY 22 | Pray for Those Struggling with Addiction and Mental Health Issues

Pastor Don Mancha


Praise the Lord. Good morning. This is day 22 of our 30 days of prayer and I am Pastor Don. This morning we are going to be praying for people who are struggling with addiction or mental health issues. It’s vitally important that we pray for people and we pray for them according to the Word of God, which is the will of God. So let’s look over at first Timothy chapter 2, verse 4 and the Word says, “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.” That is the will of God that all men be saved. Now, that word saved in the Greek – sozo - means to be delivered, to be made whole, to be preserved, safe from danger, loss or destruction. That is the will of God. No matter what kind of situation you are going through - your friends or your family members or your coworkers - no matter what they are going through, it is the will of God that they be saved. So pray that for them in the authority of Jesus. Also when you are praying for your family members or coworkers or others dealing with these issues, pray for wisdom: what to do, what to say, how to say it, when to say it, what attitude you ought to say it with. Go over to Ephesians chapter 6, verse 1. He is talking about parents relating to their family members, their children specifically. But here let’s look at verse four, “And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.” So when you are dealing with your children, even though you have authority, even though you’re working on their behalf, choose your words wisely. Let’s read this from the New Living Translation – Ephesians 4:6, “Fathers,[c] do not provoke your children to anger by the way you treat them. Rather, bring them up with the discipline and instruction that comes from the Lord.” Pray that the Lord gives you the words to say and how to say it and when to say it when you are dealing with your family members and friends suffering from addiction and mental health issues. Ask God for wisdom and He will give it to you. Be blessed.
