Prayer Challenge

I want to ask you to say this prayer out loud, if possible.

“I belong to God. I am a holy vessel because I have the Holy Spirit of the Living God. The Lord of Heaven and earth has said to me; “I declare you holy!”. I commit to start believing what He says. I AM HOLY! Remind me daily, Spirit of the Living God, to treat myself as holy, open my eyes to every scheme of The Enemy to treat me as if I'm not. You, God, are Holy. Your word is the truth. This day Father, I chose to believe you! I ask this in the mighty name of your son Jesus Christ, who died on a cross for me so that I could be a coheir to the kingdom of God. Amen”

Battling Alcohol, Drugs, and Addictions with Scripture Prayer

My first exposure to scripture prayer was when a friend loaned me a Beth Moore book, Get Out of That Pit. In the back of the book were a scripture prayers for everyday of the week. The concept is fairly simple, but I had never thought of it. Using scripture for prayer is now a habit for me. Below is a scripture prayer to help combat addictions. Just place the name of the person(s), or your own name, in the blanks when you pray. The italicized words are my own additions.
