Pleading The Blood Against Alcoholism

Last updated on:

I just had another real good story called in once more showing the unbelievable power of Pleading the Blood of Jesus against something specific.

A woman I used to work with called this in. When she first told me about it, I had no intentions on passing this story around due to the very personal nature of what had occurred in it. However, after she told me what just happened, she literally asked that I pass this on to the rest of you.

She said if this story could help others who may be having the same type of problem she was, that she would be all for releasing this story, as it once more dramatically shows the power of intercessory prayer, especially when combined with Pleading of the Blood of Jesus against something specific that you want taken out.

Here is her story and how fast God answered her prayer.

The Testimony

About 6 months ago she told me her marriage was in trouble and that she was thinking about at least separating from her husband. I had met her husband several times and he is a really nice guy and they seemed to be very compatible. The news of her marriage being in trouble really shocked me.

She then proceeded to tell me that the source of their marital problems was that her husband had been abusing alcohol for the last 8 years and things were going from bad to worse. It was really starting to affect his health. He was starting to prematurely age and his entire family was really starting to worry about him. They were all afraid he was literally going to die.

He apparently had been suffering from unexplainable, panic-anxiety attacks and started drinking to try to alleviate these panic attacks. The alcohol obviously did not work and just made things worse. This woman had been trying to get him to go to counseling but he would not do it. She said her husband is a very proud man and does not like to admit defeat or weakness in anything. He is also a real outdoorsman and literally cannot stand to be cooped up inside for too long of a period of time.

I think he was afraid to go to counseling for fears that the doctor would want to have him admitted for the alcoholism. One of his doctors had him on some medication to try and alleviate the panic attacks but the medication was not working. With the medication not working to alleviate the panic attacks, with him being too proud to admit defeat to go to any type of counseling, and the abuse of the alcohol continuing on an everyday basis, my friend was at her wits end and did not know what else she could do to stop all of this.

When she first told me about this 6 months ago, I told her if all else fails on trying to get him to counseling – to try “standing in the gap” for him with God, Plead the Blood of Jesus against the alcoholism and any demons who might be behind the scenes influencing him to continue to drink, and then to ask God to move into the situation to break this addiction off him and to get him cleaned up so she would not lose her marriage over it.

I told her that since her husband had no real working knowledge about spiritual warfare and how to use it in a real life combat situation – that God would honor her standing in the gap for him and that she could go on the “offensive” by Pleading the Blood of Jesus directly against the alcoholism. I told her to do it in secret, that she did not have to tell him that she was going to pray for him.

Six months had gone by and with there being no improvement on this situation, she decided to try and Plead the Blood of Jesus directly against his abuse of alcohol to see if God would move in with His deliverance power to get him to clean up his act and set him free from this horrible addiction. Here is what happened after she went into the gap for her husband.

They were set to go out of town on a vacation on a Monday afternoon. My friend decides to pray and Plead the Blood against the alcoholism the night before on a Sunday night. She went ahead and Pleaded the Blood and asked God to move into the situation to set her husband completely free from the alcohol.

The next morning on that Monday, they were sitting at the breakfast table. They were due to leave for their vacation that afternoon. Then all of a sudden her husband looks at her and asks her if she really wanted to go out of town on this vacation. He then proceeds to tell her that he has better things to do than to go on this vacation.

My friend then tells him that this vacation will probably do him good and that he needs a break from all of the work that he does. She then asked him what else does he have better to do than to go on this needed vacation.

He then looks straight at her and says that he knows that he has a real problem with his drinking and that he now wants to do something about it before he loses his marriage with her. He then proceeds to tell her that he would be willing to have himself checked in and have the doctors and counselors work with him!

My friend said she just about fell out of her chair. She had been pleading with this man over the last 8 years to get professional help and he would not do it. She then goes on the offensive, Pleads the Blood of Jesus one time, and then asks God to move in on the situation. Twelve hours later, her husband all of a sudden has a complete change of heart about the entire matter, decides he really does have a drinking problem and that he does need professional help.

Mind you, her husband is a very proud man, does not like to admit defeat or weakness in anything, and cannot stand the thought of being locked up for any length of time. By having himself admitted to an alcohol rehab center, he knows he is going to be locked up for at least 4-6 days. All of this goes against his normal behavior patterns.

That is the typical length of stay at a rehabilitation center, while some centers even offer longer treatment periods.

Within 12 hours after his wife Pleads the Blood of Jesus against his alcoholism – this man all of a sudden has a complete change of mind on his drinking problem and is completely willing to have himself checked in, when over the last 8 years he had refused to accept any type of help. Coincidence? I don’t think so. This complete turnabout within 12 hours shows how fast God can move on certain situations.

My friend then proceeds to have him admitted to an alcohol treatment center. He was in there for 6 days and had no physical withdrawal from coming completely off the alcohol. After he gets out, he tells his wife that he does not want to lose her over his drinking problem and that he will try and defeat it. He said he saw quite a few people in the treatment center that had completely lost everything as a result of their drinking – their families, their marriages, their jobs and all of their friends.

He felt like God was showing him that this was the road that he was traveling on and that if he did not clean up his act, that he too would lose everything like some of these people had done.

He has had no drinks since he has come home from this 6-day stay. However, he did tell his wife that the desire for the alcohol was still there and that he was still tempted to want to drink. I told her the next step is to Plead the Blood of Jesus directly against the desire to drink. God has to take out the desire for the alcohol. If He does not, then her husband will continue to battle his temptations to drink and could easily slip back into it.

When God completely delivers someone from alcohol or drug abuse, He usually takes out the desire for the drugs or alcohol. Testimony after testimony from people who have been set free from drugs or alcohol all say the same thing – that when God delivers them from their addictions, He totally takes out their desire for the alcohol or drugs. If He didn’t, the temptation would be too great and too strong and many of these people would fall back into their addictions.

Hopefully, this powerful move by God will stick and he will not go back to his drinking. I feel if my friend Pleads the Blood directly against the desire for the alcohol, then God will finish what He started and will have completely set this man free from his abuse of alcohol that had been going on for the last 8 years.

Again, another powerful and dramatic testimony once more showing how powerful Pleading the Blood of Jesus can be if you are willing to go on the offensive with it like this woman did.

  1. This resonated with me. I had been a drinker for over 40 years. The last 10 being the worst and most debilitating with all kinds of physical problems. In June of 2017 I lay my face on the floor and committed myself to Jesus with complete surrender. He delivered me from alcohol and took the desire away. I praise His Name because He has developed a wonderful relationship with Him and a reconciliation with my family. Jesus delivers and sets captives free!

  2. I am blessed to have found this site and read all the prayers and problems of people who are related to alcoholics…my boyfriend drinks everyday and says he is not a full blown alcoholic…and I believed him. Now after reading these prayer requests I know better. Please pray for him..his name is Victor…I plead the blood of Jesus over his drinking and desire for it..In Jesus mighty name I pray. I have noticed in our relationship that he is not consistent with things caused by his alcoholism. May God bless all and may Jesus intervene in our situations.

  3. My son is having a drinking problem, when he started drinking he can’t stop. When trying to talk to him, he denied that he is having a drinking problem, as of now he sees me as an enemy as I always trying to talk with him about his behavior, when he drinks he forget everything. I know that my Lord you can, what is impossible for us, it is possible for you my Lord. Please pray because his marriage is on the rock due to that problem

  4. I’m sitting here at my son’s home once again having made the trip up to help my younger son try to put his older brother back on his feet after a long drinking bender. They live together and my son, who just turned 40 has been an alcoholic for many years. He lost his marriage and now his two beautiful children…a son and daughter who want nothing more to do with him. Our son by the world’s standards would seem to have everything going for him…he’s handsome, very intelligent…with a college, but sadly doesn’t see it. He suffers from severe anxiety attacks and depression. He’s been on all kinds of medication, with no good results. If not for his younger brother who moved in with him years ago…to try to help him conquer this battle…he would be on the street, in prison or dead. My younger son is now pretty much the only financial provider for the household…being that my older son can’t work most of the time due to his addiction. My husband is 72 and I’m 62…both retired and living on a budget. We have tried to get him to go to rehab…but he won’t. We also help our younger son financially when we can. The saddest thing is to see how it has affected my younger son’s life and ours. This horrible disease is a joy snatcher…it literally sucks the life out of you. Our younger son…who loves his brother just can’t bring himself to kick him out. He always says, “I couldn’t bear the thought of him dying on the streets or going to prison after I kick him out.” I read the testimony above and all of your prayer requests…and I ask that you please remember our sons and our family in your prayers and I will definitely be praying for you as well. I will be pleading the Blood of Jesus directly against the alcoholism and the desire for him to drink. God bless each of you and know that Jesus loves you and so do I.

  5. Please pray big prayers for me.
    I have relapsed so many times and each is worse than the other. I PLEAD THE BLOOD OF JESUS…God please heal me Father.
    Today I claim victory over this viciousness and rebuke the devil in every way.
    Amen and Amen. …in Jesus powerful name!

    • I know there is nothing I can do without God, Lord Jesus Christ. I have been with my hubbie for over six years. I have begged, pleaded, cried and have found myself to be in a increased trigger state. I know Lord that you can take care of this issue and I need to respond by asking through the Blood of Jesus Christ. Help me Lord. I beg of you. Help my Man by removing this addiction and keep me focused. I Love you God, Lord Jesus Christ. I humble myself to you forever and may my Family lie under the protection of “Your Blood”.

  20. My Husband also has a drinking problem. Every time he drinks he comes back home and he quarrels about everything even though I don’t say anything a bout his drinking he will shout and quarrel about anything that crosses is mind. One day he was so drunk that he even lost self control and he would walk the whole house necked and we don’t stay alone that was so embarrassing to and remained talking to home self like someone who is demon possessed.
    Last night the same thing happened, he even threatened to beat me up in front of my young brother just because I asked him to lower his voice. Today morning he asked for forgiveness and promised he would change but since he has been doing the same and each time he asks for forgiveness and says he will change. I didn’t take it seriously. I need someone to help me pray for him
