A man who is greatly exposed to alcohol is in doom. The marriage of a woman married to an alcoholic husband is built on a gun powder which can explode anytime. Alcohol causes a man to lose his sense of judgment and reasoning simultaneously. Today we shall be looking at prayers for an alcoholic husband. This prayer is a passionate heart to heart prayer that every wife should pray for her alcoholic husband. The evil spirit of alcoholism has caused many damages in a lot of families today. Many families have been destroyed because of this spirit. Many husbands has lost there way because they have become victims of alcoholism, but today, this prayers shall set them free in Jesus Christ name.
Funnily even with the present age of modernized Christianity, people still go about asking if drinking was a sin or not. In fact, many people have justified their alcoholic nature to the verse of the scripture that revealed that Christ turns water to wine. In the book of John 2:1-11, the Bible explained how Jesus turned water to wine at a wedding in Cana in Galilee. This Bible verse alone has spell doom to many people who do not read the scripture with the understanding of the Holy Spirit.
This will lead us to the big question:
Is Drinking Alcohol A Sin?
In the book of Ephesians 5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess, but be filled with the Spirit.
This means that the scripture understands that a bottle of wine can get someone drunk. Instead of getting drunk with wine and misbehaving on the street demeaning the image of your family and Church, why not get intoxicated with the Holy Spirit. A man that is filled with alcohol will act unwisely while the one filled with the Holy Spirit will act in accordance with the Will of God.
As a wife, you owe your husband a duty of prayer, especially when you notice or discover that he is drifting away through alcohol. One of the greatest weapons that the devil uses to snatch a man away is Alcohol. A man that has sworn his excitement to drinking will no longer find happiness with his wife, he will rather seek comfort and acceptability with a bottle of wine than his family. And once a man gets to that state, he has become prey in the hands of the devil.
Your husband’s addiction to Alcohol is demonic bondage which he needs to be freed from. The book of Galatians 5:1 Christ has liberated us into freedom. Therefore stand firm and don’t submit again to a yoke of slavery.” This explained that Jesus has liberated us from every bondage that the devil is planning to get us into. More so, God is our spiritual father, He always wants to take away our pain, agony, reproach and everything that is making us sad. There is no responsible wife that will be happy with her alcohol-addicted husband.
As a wife, when you noticed that your husband is losing the battle to alcohol, these are the prayers you should say to save his soul.
