Mother’s Prayer For An Alcoholic Son

Parenting is a lifelong job; it doesn’t end even when our kids become independent adults. Unfortunately, there’s no shortage of vices waiting to destroy the lives of our loves ones. As children of God and hopeful parents, here are a few prayer points to help us all plead the Blood of Jesus against alcoholism.

5x Prayer for An Alcoholic Son

Prayer for Alcoholic Son – Divine Intervention

Divine Intervention

Dear Lord, I thank you for the abundant blessings you have graciously bestowed on me and my family. But Father, I come before you today with a lot of pain in my heart. Pain for my son whose addiction to alcohol threatens to destroy his young life.

Father, I am powerless and turn to you for divine intervention.  I call upon your name so you may show yourself to my boy before things spiral out of control. Fill him with your divine power and break the evil chains of his terrible addiction from within.

Even though he has strayed from the righteous path, I know you have plans for all your children. I pray for your grace and mercy Dear Lord, that you may work a miracle and create a new spirit within my son’s heart. Your word tells us that any tree not planted by God shall and will be uprooted. Help me remove the root of drinking from my boy’s heart and replace it with your everlasting peace. In Jesus’s name I pray,


Restoration of Health

Lord Jesus, we thank you for this miraculous song you gifted us. We are eternally grateful for the life you breathed into us and will continue to serve your Holy Name. I come before you now to ask for mercy on behalf of my son who has put his own life in jeopardy by overindulging in alcohol.

1 Corinthians 6:19 tells us that our bodies are temples for the Spirit of Holiness who dwells within us. Father, I know you’ve given people far less yet they remained faithful and thankful to you. I pray you may forgive my son’s self-indulgence and restore his earthly temple to your Holy image.

Please blot out his transgressions, shower him with your mercy and grant him strength as he battles the demons of addiction. Grant him resolve to stop abusing your holy vessel as you work on both his mental and physical health. In your blood may he be born anew and like the 10th leper who came back to say thank you, he will never forget that he serves a God of mercy and healing.  In your son’s name we ask for restoration,


Rebuking the Demon of Addiction

Prayer for Alcoholic Son – Rebuking the Demon of Addiction

Almighty creator of heaven and earth, we can upon your Holy name today to lead us into a righteous battle. As more and more of your flock struggles to overcome the curse of alcohol addiction, we lift up all those ensnared by this ungodly dependence on drink.

Dear Lord, my own son has become a slave to the bottle, and unable to shake the demon from his shoulders no matter how hard he tries. We pray you may shine your Holy light upon him and chase away all the demons hidden in the shadows. The Book of Isaiah 40 reminds us how you give power to the weak, for they shall not grow weary or utterly fall no matter how tough the journey.  

In your grace Lord Jesus, we ask that you grant our boy strength to face his addiction head on. Draw out the slavery to alcohol and replace the vice with an all new dependency on Jesus, Who died on the cross so that all those who believe in Him will be saved from damnation… and in Whose name we pray and believe,


Good Company

Heavenly Father, we thank you for holding our son’s hand as he struggles to overcome his addition. We ask that you may deliver him from bad company, fake friends and drinking peers as he finds his own path in life. Let my boy be surrounded instead by people with good morals who want the best for him.

The Book of 1 Corinthians 15:33 tells us not to be deceived; for bad company corrupts good character… evil communication corrupts good manners. So as you bless my son with righteous friends who are tenacious in their faith, may you also show his other friends the light so that your joy and peace can spread to parents everywhere. We pray this trusting and believing,



Thank you Jesus, thank you Lord. I am grateful for all the blessings you have showered upon me and my family. In the Book of Philippians 1verse 6, you promise us that you will finish the good work you started within us, and we have seen this miracle manifest.

We thank you for helping our son on the way to recovery from his alcohol addiction. You lifted his lost spirit from the miry clay and saved his soul from the pit of despair. Today, I ask you to hold onto him with Your righteous hand and continue guiding him down the holy path.

You are indeed a God of Your word, and we have felt your presence all throughout this journey. We see our boy before us today, a testament of all the wonders and miracles you continue to perform on our lives. We praise your Holy name forever and ever,


Final Word

Hello my fellow parents, guardians and caretakers. We’d like you to know that you are not alone in this painful journey. These prayers and others like them echo passionately in all corners of the globe, among all walks of life as we all call upon God to save and guide our sons.

Today’s lifestyle and alarming levels of exposure have our boys doing drugs at a very young age. Alcoholism and other forms of addiction are a disease that affects both the body and mind.

So dear mothers and fathers, please insist on your son’s life, remain persistent and engage these prayers for your son to finally break the shackles of addiction.

Encourage our young men to join the flock and surround themselves with the right company. It’s in this way that we can start a chain reaction that will create strong, upright men, who will be the fathers, leaders, and visionaries of tomorrow – an inspiration for the next generation.
