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

 Abby

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

Abby

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

Abby

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"

Abby

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 to honestly smile, to feel hope,

I want this life . . .  that I will have to fight like hell to get to

Abby

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 

Abby

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

Abby

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 !!!

Abby

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

 Abby

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

~ 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

Grant Me Today

Grant me today . . . Courage
to change . . . and grow
Belief . . . that I am deserving
Strength . . . to do what is right
Hope . . . fill my heart and spirit
Love . . . for my recovering self
Patience . . . with myself and others

I put one foot in front of the other
As I heal and reclaim my own life

~ Abby Willowroot © 2008

Abby

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

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.

Your words in a Prayer will always be more powerful than any prayer written by someone else. Please enjoy the Prayers and Invocations here, and if you feel like it,  allow yourself to begin writing your own personal prayers.  Your creativity grows strong with use.
