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. For the last five years my Husband has lost his mind to alcoholism. We went through so much and it seems as if its getting worse. We have been homeless, loss jobs, lost home, hes been arrested for multiple dui’s, he is in denial, he is delusional from what is real, he has become abusive, and it seems as if it will never get better. I have been praying and now I am asking for anyone who would help pray that the Lord will free him of his addiction for alcohol. I am pleading the blood of Jesus christ to take away my husbands addiction for alcoholism and the desire to drink alcohol in Jesus name I pray Amen.

    • Farrah,
      I also plead the blood of Jesus over you and your family. I pray that the Lord bind and cast out all attacks and tricks of the devil. I pray the armor of God over your household in the Mighty name of Jesus.

      Amen!

  2. I would just love it if anyone would pray for my husband. He has been an alcoholic for 16 years. Drinks every day and often gets so drunk he can’t function and doesn’t remember what he’s done. Two nights ago he came home (drove home) so drunk he could barely stand and then peed all over our son’s bed right in front of him This is by far the most traumatic event we’ve had. I have been praying for so long and I feel so helpless right now. He apologized to my son last night and told him he would try not to drink as much anymore. This comes after I told him he is an alcoholic and needs to stop drinking for good. Sounds like he has no intention of quitting. I have such a fear that it will come down to me and my kids leaving because he will choose the alcohol over us. My daughter even expressed yesterday that he is more interested in having fun than he is in his own children. It’s heartbreaking. Please, please pray for him and us. I don’t know where to go from here.

  3. In 2017 we were on the verge if divorce but hubby repented & became sober after much prayer. Now it has started again, and I’m tired. I cant do it again. The sacrifices i made.. I am tired. Pls help me. My family is on the line here. I have seen the demonic spirit and it has spoken to me last time. My spiritual state is empty and i am trying to seek God, but I struggle to hear Him. No one at church, family or work knows this challenge. I am embarrassed for him. HELP. He’s coming home drunk again. Another possible argument.

  4. I am in this same battle with my wife. She wants to stop but says she can’t. I fasted for 3 days and asked my church for a prayer cloth annointed with oil and prayed over by all the women of the church. I have given her the prayer cloth and continue to pray daily for her. I know God is going to move on this situation. Please keep us in your prayers!

  5. Please agree with me for God to remove the taste for alcohol, cigarettes, and any other additive substances from my son David. Please agree with me for David’s eyes to be opened to the light of the Gospel. Please agree with me for David to become the man that God intended for him to be. And finally, please agree with me for his peace and safety.

    • Amen! I came on here to read about this testimony to get perspective on what more I could do and it was a great testimony as I scroll down, the first comment I see is yours. My husband has the same name. I am in tears. They will both be delivered. IN JESUS NAME! ❤

    • I come in agreement with you, my son is also going through same problem. In the mighty and wonderful name of Jesus Christ, I come against that spirit of alcohol and cigarettes that is trying to destroy our children’s lives.

  6. Father, in the Name of Jesus, I stand in the gap and I plead the Blood of Jesus over my husband against alcolism and any demons who might be behind the scenes influencing him to drink, Lord deliver him from destructive spirits. Lord move I our situation and break every addiction off him. Lord, clean him up completely. Lord, separate him from friends and situations that influence him to drink. Any depressive and negative emotional manipulations of demons that cause my husband to drink and live self destructive behavior, I come against you in the Name of Jesus. I declare that my husband is free because the Son of God, Jesus Christ sets him free from every addiction and every negative emotions in Jesus name. My husband, be filled with the Holy Spirit. I plead the blood over the desire to drink, in the Name of Jesus, may you detest completely, the smell, taste, sound of alcohol. May the joy of Holy Spirit fill your heart. In Jesus name I pray, Amen

  7. I am experiencing so many of the same things i am reading about. Since my husband’s mother dies he has started drinking and sleeping alot. . It gets better and then when I least expect it it happens again. I feel alcohol is a tool satan is using to tear us apart. He is a mean drunk and verbally abusive. The bad thing is he does not remember anything he has said or done. So it’s like he can’t understand the hurt he causes.
    He lies about drinking and promises to quite but is unable.
    I plead the precious blood of Jesus over him to help him stop and to take away the desire to drink.
    In Jesus name amen

  8. Father I thank you for this message and testimony right now as I plead the blood of Jesus over the spirit of alcohol in my husband life I minister deliverance upon him in Jesus name. Holy spirit I pray that you will help my husband to overcome this addiction you word says greater is he that is in him than thee that is in the world. Let the blood of Jesus separate him from wrong friend and as you deliver him I believe that our children as well will be delivered in Jesus name amen.

  9. I plead the blood of jesus against my husband daily drinking and chain smoking.i believe in faith God that u may change him this moment. I also plead the blood of jesus against our family because of his drinking he hates me and children for his people he tries to leave us and give them to enter into our house and put us out.i plead the blood of jesus to become my husband good and a good father to children.

  10. I plead the blood of Jesus against alcohol and drinking habits in my husband more than 45yrs this was going. I also plead the blood of Jesus on that time he hates me and children and insults blame and beats me in front of others.he puts me out of house of hours that time he loves his people and my mother’s sister sons and daughter in laws who wished to see my tears and pain. They pay double roll.i plead the blood of Jesus on all situations I believe that Jesus will heal him and change him to a good person to me and children. Please pray

  11. I personally have a drinking problem. I had quit smoking and drinking for almost 6 years but due to peer pressure I went back. I see how my family loves me and how much they get hurt when they see me drunk. I need prayers for me to stop the resurgence of these habits.

    • The best solution is to avoid your friends.
      Yes it will hurt and can prove difficult but that’s is solution.
      Don’t be friends with the world or you will continue to be a part of the world!
      “If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.”
      Luke 14:26 If there is anything on your way to Christ (doing the right thing), push it aside!- Always put the Will of God for you first.

      Read also Luke 18:29-30 and see the reward for doing this.
      God help you overcome in Christ Jesus Name amen!

  12. I have been with my boyfriend for 6 years now. He loves to drink- and stopped for awhile, but recently started back. When he drinks he drinks heavy alcohol and becomes mean and belligerent, argumentative, and verbally abusive towards me.

    I currently stay with my mom. We both have told him not to drink at our house. So instead, he shows up drunk. He stopped but recently started back.

    I told him to leave yesterday after he became mean and uncontrollable. He got angry. He claims he is not ‘drunk’ when he drinks, but he argues, yells and stumbles around. He is a completely different person, one who i do not care to be around.

    Today he called me and told me he is about to leave me, because i quote ‘try to tell him what to do and treat him like a child’.

    I don’t want to see the relationship end, because he is a great guy when he is not drinking. His mother told me that alcoholism runs on both sides of his family, that his grandparents went out and drank and became excessively violent and mean, causing big fights and discomfort in the family.

    I need advice. Please pray the blood of Jesus over John and to God for an intervention against this illness.

    Thank you.

  13. My beautiful daughter is an alcoholic. She is 34. Tonight she told me she doesn’t want to drink anymore. She had gotten a promotion last year as a restaurant manager. She has had 2 warnings about her drinking. I am thankful she finally wants to never drink. Going to AA tomorrow. I have prayed she will hate alcohol. I do plea blood of Jesus over her not I have not prayed against spirits, I have played against generational sins and curses to be broken. I sing a song God gave me to sing over my daughter. I praise God he is with her to heal and deliver her for His glory. He had a plan and purpose for her. And being free from alcoholism is His will. I’m going to keep pleading the blood and praying and singing over her. God is faithful. Amen

  14. In 1995 the Lord delivered me from alcoholism. I never have experienced a desire to drink since. Now I am retired and am living with my son and daughter-in-law. In the last year I have witnessed alcoholism completely take over their lives. My son, who seemed to be a committed Christianhas lost all sight of God in order to pursue his need and desire to drink. Any attempt on my part to speak to either individual regarding their drinking has resulted verbal attacks against me. Thus,in order to keep the peace I have stopped discussing it. I am living in a situation that is causing me great stress and heartbreak. I have no other place to go because I don’t have enough income to live on my own. I have been praying and praying but it sometimes seems that the Lord isn’t listening. So I came to this site looking for scriptures that I could use to continue to pray for this couple. I am asking for any od you who read this to join me in prayer that the couple be released from this bondage.

    • I prayed for your son and his wife and heard a voice from home that they will be well. Let’s keep on praying…there is nothing impossible for God to do. Hope this helps you. Take care of yourself and look for a support group for yourself. I’d like to hear your progress. I have a young son addicted to alcohol too and please pray for him too. God bless.

  15. I’m pleading the blood of Jesus for my husband. Please dear Lord save him. We have been together for 40 years, we have 3 beautiful children that at all married and 4 beautiful grandchildren. I’ve been praying for him for so long. I just don’t know what to do anymore, I just want to give up. He drinks everyday. 5 years ago he quit for 3 years, was the best three years. And than started up again 2 years ago. He has a lot of hurt from childhood issues, I pray that God heals him from those demons. Please pray for him, I am at a loss and my prayers aren’t working. Dear Lord, I’m pleading the blood of Jesus for my husband, please take away his urges, desire and need for alcohol, please heal his heart of the demons that are taking control of him, please have him seek you in his times of weakness and troubles. In the name of Jesus I pray amen and amen.

  16. I believe the reason this wife was able to be effective in standing in the gap in intercession by pleading the blood of Jesus is because in 1 Cor. 7:4 (NASB) the Word of God gives the wife AUTHORITY over her husband’s body.
    I hesitate to say this would be consistently effective for me just doing the same for my friend. I do stand in the gap in prayer for anyone who asks me to pray for them. I should. But I do not have authority over their body.

    • I understand what you’re saying and that’s a great verse! However, there is also an example in Acts 12 when Peter was put in jail after Herod killed James and Herod noticed it pleased the people. Herod was going to kill Peter. Yet, the church was praying and interceding for Peter. We don’t know how they were praying, but they were obedient to pray. God delivers Peter from that prison and he goes to the house to tell them, while they are all praying and mourning Peter knocks on the door and they don’t believe it’s him! God is so good! We also have Romans 8:26, Ephesians 6:18, Collosians 4:2, James 4:2c-3 and James 5:16 to encourage us to have an earnest prayer life even when we don’t know how to pray.

      I’ve needed all of these verses as I pray for my husband to stay the course and rebuke the enemy and any desire my husband has to start drinking alcohol again. He knows God has delivered him from 6 years of alcohol abuse but he also thinks he could enjoy a glass of wine one day down the road and I don’t agree with that mindset. God tells us if we bring fire to our chest we will get burned.

      • Yet we do because we are all the body of Christ and one in unity with Him.

  17. I will try it. My husband has been abusing alcohol for 16 years of our 21 year marriage. He is not an angry drunk and he is somewhat in control of it, this is why he thinks it’s not a problem. Does not affect his job. But there is alcohol every single day, six or more beers a day during the week. Any day that he does not have to get up for work the next day is a day for mixed drinks/drunkenness. He has said it’s just so fun to get drunk even though he does it alone. He’s drunk every Friday and Saturday nights and any time he’s on PTO from work; even on family vacations where he’s ruined some times with our kids. Increasingly he’ll have mixed drinks in the middle of the week too. Alcohol isolates him. He doesn’t really have friends and keeps a distance with family.

    I avoid him when he’s getting drunk because he gets really aggravating towards me. At times I scream profanities at him because I am being provoked to wrath. He knows it’s bothering me and only increases the bothersome activity. I feel it’s his way of getting attention. The next morning he is perfectly fine and just moves on as if nothing happened. No hangover! But he will sleep a lot midday.

    I’ve broken down when expressing how much it affects me but he actually hardens his heart more when I show tears. I do feel he has a spirit. If this doesn’t work I feel I need to remove myself from this marriage. I even think his drinking is provoked by me.

    • Kristina, why do you feel his drinking is provoked by you? I am really curious. No judgement at all, I promise. Do you see a pattern in his family at all??

    • Kristina you are not alone my band is just as you said your is….. we have been married for 15 years and have 4 children 3 girls 13, 11, and 8 our son who is 6!
      HE drinks every day usually starts at 5-6 pm sometimes earlier. I recently asked him to stop drinking liquor because he becomes overly aggressive never physical just obnoxious and mean to me and our 4 children. He has been lying for a long time about a lot of stuff but these silly lies I can get past it’s the drinking that is going to in the end separate us. He sneeks and drinks vodka or whiskey shooters not really sure how many anymore and drinks anywhere from 10-15 16oz beers a night. He won’t eat until right before bed sleeps from 10/11 pm until anywhere from 12-3pm the next day he works 24 hour shifts and is off for 48 hour shifts. He doesn’t go to friends unless invited and will Uber there and back unless I’m willing to pick or drop him off! He is on lisinopril once a day (which is always taken at irregular times) for his snappy behavior he calls it. He is retired from the military and now a Firefighter/EMT! I’ve recently converted to Apostolic faith about 10 months ago and am really serious about my relationship with GOD now! I was to an alcoholic for the past year and after I started going to the church I slowly cut down and decided to start the new year off living completely for GOD I’ve been blessed spiritually in so many ways over the past couple months but can not get him to willingly cut down on his drinking let alone stop. My faith is strong but when it comes to my stubborn husband whom is one way at church and another at home and in fact like this everywhere but at home. He is a happy drunk around others but a very mean one to myself and children none of us want to be around him at all when he is drinking. He has gone as far as getting up from sleep and peeing in the kitchen trash can in front of our 8 year old daughter and myself while playing card games I woke him and said why are you peeing in the trash and he proceeded to yell at me that he could pee where he wanted to in his house. I have a very hard time holding my tongue and saying what I think at the moment and feel like my anger toward him is growing! My pastor advises to grow the anger toward the alcohol and Satan I do hate them both but my husband has been saying very mean things that are starting to make me wish we were separated. Due to the lack of respect my children are acting out and misbehaving some of them are having school issues with grades and my oldest is seeking attention from boys I’m not sure what to do anymore I know there’s is power in prayer I pray constantly have recently decided fasting and prayer may also be a great benefit! I just want you to know you aren’t alone and I’m going to be praying for you! Thank you for taking the time to read my story I can not wait to post a testimony about my marriage someday!

  18. I plead the blood of Jesus against the desire for my mother to drink and to completely uplift her spirit and bring her closer to god and back to her family. Thank you father God for hearing and answering prayers.

  19. I thank God to reveal this powerful stories. I am pleading the blood of Jesus to fight against alcoholism to my husband and the disire of wanting to drink in Jesus name I pray.

  20. I plead the blood of Jesus over my boyfriend, Victor A. I am trusting God to honor my prayer over his life and to deliver him from alcoholism and horrible past relationships. I pray that God will take the desire to drink alcohol away from him. In the powerful name of Jesus, Victor will be delivered from alcoholism. I pray that God delivers him and takes away the fear of marrying me, because of his past relationships. I also pray for his health. Thank you Jesus, because it will be done. Thank you because my prayer is answered, I have faith it will be answered. Jesus you are in control. I pray that he contacts me with positive and great news. In Jesus name I pray. Amen!
