Scriptures are from the King James Bible
This morning in my prayer time our Lord spoke these words to me, "Some of the drug addicts and alcoholics who get saved will reach spiritual places where their souls will follow hard after Me. They are going to be warriors - major forces against the powers of evil. I will have them to explode on this earth scene to blow up in dimensions that will cause the devils to tremble on levels unlike any other..."
My soul followeth hard after thee:
...behold, I will make my words in thy mouth fire,...
They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks:
Also, our Lord shared with me that more of the people who are homeless, including military veterans, shall come forth as holy warriors.
Here is an excerpt that I wrote in a piece titled, "God's In Your Face Memo to Satan.":
GOD says to the devil:
"This warrior troop, Satan, is fully persuaded that I am their Commander in Chief - and their Fortress. They love, obey, and trust Me. They await, in earnest, My military orders. They are thirsty for blood - devil blood. Holy supernatural blood transfusions are part of the order of this day. The blood of some of your children will be transfused into the blood of JESUS to wash their sins away. You have been blood sucking, Satan, long enough on GOD'S destined heirs. The cross of My SON is their deliverance."
"I am poised, wicked one, with My trumpet call - out to the elite Special Forces. Some of the team will come from unlikely places. I have warriors in homeless shelters, jails/prisons, and living on the streets, - Oh don't be deceived - some of My best are from, and will come from such places." Hark! Let the record show - a select number of folks who have been disenfranchised are My franchisees indeed.
"More people, Satan, from every spectrum of society will surrender to Me. The suits - the no-suits - the rich - the religious, and Oh yes, more backsliders will slide back to ME. You know also that My reach is global. Mark 16:15 says, '...Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.' North, south, east and west, My gospel shall be preached, and whosoever will - shall come!"
"You can look forward, Satan, to My new breed mean machine team. We mean to do exploits with excellence, and certain triumphant results."

Below are prayers for addicts and their family members.
Prayers for Addiction Strong Holds
Pure and holy Father GOD, thank You that with You all things are possible. Your Word states that there is nothing too hard for You. In this prayer, I decree deliverance and complete freedom for drug and alcohol addicts. Father, You know that among the many addicts, there are professional people who are addicted, and that includes doctors and other medical professionals, some of whom are addicted to prescription drugs. There are people all over this world who are gripped by the bondage of addiction. They are found in every economic class, race, culture, and persuasion.
Lord, I ask, according to Your Word, that You will set the captives free, set at liberty those who are bound, and send Your Word to heal them. Let Your holy saints go forth to love on those who are gripped by the strong holds of demonic addictions. Reveal the best ways to help them with Your Word as guide. Allow Your Holy Ghost power to move within the ensnared hearts, and lead the addicted to run into Your healing arms.
Work Your marvels, blessed Lord, and prove to the doubters that You reign. You are powerful beyond measure and only You can subdue and destroy the works of the devil that hold people captive. Get the "monkeys off their backs," Lord, and put JESUS in their hearts. You are love, glorious Father GOD. Let, please, Your rivers of living water pour forth as a miraculous fountain to wash people clean with the operation of Your Word and JESUS' righteous blood. You are a Fortress, a Rock, a Strong Tower, and a very present help in the time of trouble.
Deliverance is a process. Process people, please Lord, through all of the necessary channels to reach triumphant victories. Equip them, glorious Father, to stand fully armored to vanquish the vicious "death" grips that Satan worked on them. Teach them to have life and to have it more abundantly. Let them taste and see that the Lord is good. Teach them to fight the good fight of faith through steadfast obedience to You and Your Word. Give them staying power. Show them how to fight on their knees and on their faces in full dependence on You. Remove them from toxic and negative relationships. Let Your awesome anointing flood the souls of the many thirsty people. Work in them, please, Lord, hearts that will not faint but press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of GOD in Christ JESUS.
For loved ones of addicts
Father, in the name of JESUS, help those who love and care for addicts. There are Christians who have loved ones who are addicted to drugs and alcohol. They hurt, Lord. Please help them to continue to believe Your Word and to trust You to deliver and to destroy the works of the devil. Give them the strength to use their holy authority to keep faith in the powerful blood of JESUS. Teach them, please, Father, to be still and to know that You are GOD. Lead them to seek Your wisdom as to what to do, when, and how. Assure them that they are NOT victims but blood bought heirs of You, Almighty GOD and joint heirs with JESUS. Guide them to know that they can have peace, joy, and Your blessed assurances in the midst of their storms. Let them shed the necessary tears of grief but then dry their eyes and praise You, Lord. You promised to keep us in perfect peace when our minds are stayed on You.
Lord, those who are not Christians need salvation for themselves, and for their drug and alcohol addicted loved ones. Please reach the hearts of the unsaved and distressed. So many are in despair, Father. But You can change and liberate weary and despondent conditions. Please, Lord, prove to the many that are gripped by fear, pain and uncertainties that You love them hugely, and can effectively help in ALL matters.
Thank You, Lord - Amen.
Scriptures from the King James Bible:
1 Corinthians 16:15
...addicted themselves to the ministry...
Ah Lord God! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee:
But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.
...to proclaim liberty to the captives,...
The Lord shall reign for ever,...
...given thee living water.
...the fountain of living waters,...
The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.
God is...a very present help in trouble.
O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
1 Timothy 6:12
Fight the good fight of faith,...
...heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
Be still, and know that I am God:...
I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
...I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.
Prayers were written Thursday February 10, 2011
NOTE: The prayers above were inspired by a Christian man, Ben Ward, who I viewed on a Christian program. He's on staff at a faith-based program called Eagle Creek Recovery Center - http://www.eaglecreekrecoverycenter.com/. He gave his testimony that from the age of twelve, he began to drink alcohol which led to pot, and a crack cocaine addiction. Also, Ben's written testimony is found on the Eagle Creek Recovery Center's website, along with the testimony of other former addicts.
