Drug Addiction

Today we want to pray for a cancer that is ruthlessly eating away at the heart of millions of families in Iran: heroin and opium addiction.

Heroin flows over the borders into Iran from Afghanistan and is all too easily available. According to the 2005 UN World Drug Report, Iran has the highest opiate drug addiction rate in the world. Estimate range between 3 million and 5 million drug addicts in the nation and the suffering this causes is immense.

Addicts suffer greatly, and many tragically die. But we must also not forget the torment of many millions of family members as they live with the consequences of addiction. Millions of parents would sacrifice their lives rather than watch their loved ones wither away. Countless families are left fatherless and many wives live with the crushing burden of caring for their family on their own. Then there is the shame that members face society, especially when addicts end up in prison.

Can we unite in prayer today and plead for the Lord to have mercy and reverse this problem that is ravaging families in Iran?

  • Pray that government authorities will stop the flow of drugs into Iran. Pray against all groups and organizations that are making money on the suffering of people. Pray against all corruption that makes drugs easily available.
  • Pray for all addicts who long to be free. Pray they will have a special revelation of Jesus’ love and power on the cross. Pray that the Lord will raise up an army of Spirit-led Christians in Iran who will seek out addicts and offer the hope of the Gospel.
  • Pray for the family members of addicts. Pray for God’s comfort to pour in. Pray that these families will call out to Jesus and feel His touch, just as the leper did.
  • Pray for the many young people who even today may be tempted to try heroin for the first time. Pray the Holy Spirit will speak directly to their hearts, warning them. Pray they will know that it is only Jesus who can meet the deepest needs of their hearts.

Thank you for praying.

Lyrics to the song:

What is the solution to my sin?
The blood of the Lamb of God,
The blood of the Lamb of God.
 
What is the cure to my illnesses?
The blood of the Lamb of God.
 
Oh precious river of the Holy Spirit, You have purified me,
There is an incomparable power which is the blood of the lamb of God.
 
Such is the depravity of my soul,
What is the only way of my salvation?
The blood of the Lamb of God.
 
Oh precious river you have purified me,
There is an incomparable power which is the blood of the lamb of God.
 
What is the secret of our victory?
The blood of the lamb
What is the secret of victory over all sins,
The blood of the lamb
 
Oh precious river purify me
There is an incomparable power
 
What is the secret of our power?
The blood of the Lamb
 
Who is our intercessor in the heavens?
The blood of the Lamb of God
