Does One Prayer Cover Every Addiction?

I would like anyone's input on this:
Since we have several types of bondages at various times, does our initial prayer of deliverance cover them?

God hears our prayers

I think that when we pray to the Lord, he hears and listens to our prayer's. God is well aware of each of our bondage's. I don't think it matters how we pray or what we say when praying as long as it is from our heart. like to hear other opinion's on this subject. mike [email protected]

God already knows your needs and reads our hearts before we speak it. I feel there is more than one way to pray. You can express your needs by emotion. God in his infinite wisdom and understanding can disifer what it is your trying to ask. God Bless

Thanks to all,
You know biggbran8, I know you're right about even hearing the bad ones, "...for out of the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks." (Ma. 12:34b). I can testify that before I invited the Lord to live in my heart, I had a lot of bitterness, & sure enough as I professed something with my mouth, (usually negative back then), it came to pass. But I praise God for the revelations and the wisdom, Amen?
SlaveToChrist I thank you for your words of wisdom on this topic as well. I never really thought about it like that. But it really makes alot of sense, TY.
In His grace & mercy,

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Phillippines4: 6

I myself being in recovery, have found that one prayer will cover all , and as more is revieled to me I have found other ways to pray, and other things unthought of to pray in reguards too. For me my journey is a daily learning thing and God in His mercyful way brings me to the things I need to discover as I need to discover them, then He brings me through them and I hurt way less with Him than I did trying on my own.
Yours in Him!:rose:
God Bless, Love, Peace, and Prayers,

Thank you both for sharing. I believe that one prayer request covers all our petitions as well, no matter how frequent our needs arise. Sometimes in recovery we have a habit of trading one addiction for another, (dangerous idea), but we do it. Or we will work on one addiction at a time. It is my belief that when God delivers us from our bondages, He delivers us from all of them at once. But it is by our choice that we engage in another addiction, or to continue one. In other words, God has done His part, now it's our turn to ours, right?

Thank you guys,
In His grace & mercy,

1THESSALONIANS 5:16 Be joyful always; 17 pray continually; 18 give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.

1TH 5:19 Do not put out the Spirit's fire; 20 do not treat prophecies with contempt. 21 Test everything. Hold on to the good. 22 Avoid every kind of evil.

1TH 5:23 May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 The one who calls you is faithful and he will do it.

Well, when we pray...each prayer is very important so I think it's a continual process. If you're praying for one specific habit that you need to work on kicking, prayer on that on a continuous basis should help.

You should also make the effort to :thumbs_do that habit too...

I like how "gerlene" put it a couple of comments back, essentially "one day at a time." (Mt. 6:34). Society really attempts to push us to the brink of worry, distress, etc. But with the knowledge of God's Word, & His promises, we have nothing to fear, Amen? Then how "Zscripture" ties into it with these wonderful words of wisdom, from our Father of course. It took me many years of headaches to figure out that all of live's answers, instructions & promises were right in the Holy Scriptures. I appriciate your input as well, "Everglaze." My entire walk with recovery, as well as with the Lord, has been one obsticle at a time. Some of my friends have been delivered with one swoop, but God has a different plan for me. After all, He knows what's best for each of us, Amen? Let me encourage anyone who is struggling with any type of bondage, to STUDY the book of James, especially Chapter 5. And do not be discouraged if you are not immediately delivered, trust in God.

I believe that we need to seek prayer daily, if we are serious in our heart about being released from an addiction. We all have something in our lifes that is a thorn in our side. If we say that we don't, then we are deceiving ourselves. The reason I say daily, is that we need strength daily to overcome the addiction, we need His strength, and we need to seek it daily.

Not only will this give us the strength to overcome, but it will draw us even closer to our Lord Jesus. Remeber, He works all thing out for the good of those who love Him.

Thank you WritersHeart,
That is a great point, and the honesty in vital. I would also like to add that not only do we need to Always Stop And Pray, (ASAP), but we should seek everything God has to offer us in His Word, (the advice & promises). Fellowship with brothers and sisters, & mainly treat our dedication to the Lord as we do our bondages. Jesus suffered for us so we don't have to suffer any longer in our bondages, Amen?
