God please take these chains that are bound against my substance-stained heart & set me free.            

God I now humbly ask that You please help me remove these rusted, substance chains from my heart. I understand completely I was the one who bound them to myself in the first place. I did this on my own will. I now ask that Your will be done NOT mine. I turned my back on You, and thought that you had left me. But yet You were always there, even when I was in the worst situations. I know that it is only Your will that I am still here to tell my story today. I am living on borrowed time. I must never turn my back on You again, if I do I will surely be dead, OR WORSE I will LIVE in complete misery. I will continue to wake up every day feeling sentenced to another day of life. Today I try to live each day as if it were my last, forgiving those who trespass against me. Relieve me of the bondage of self-will, so that I may better do Thy will. I shall continue to carry this message to anyone who needs it. Every day I seem to lose a single link to these substance chains that bind me. I am now willing that You should have ALL of me GOOD and BAD. Give me this day, my daily bread, which is to be sober, serene, happy, joyous, and free. I ran for so very long on my own will in the dark, but whats done in the dark WILL be brought to the light. Until You finally had to cut me down. Thank You for THE MIRACLE, the miracle that You let me see the light, that I had a serious alcohol & drug problem. Nothing compares to the love You have shown me, since I invited You into my life. Faith without works is dead.
