“Dear Heavenly Father,
We lift up ______________. She has been struggling with smoking for a while. We know that you can supply all her needs, Lord. We know that you want ____________ as healthy as she can be for her family and for herself. You died to give her life, not an early death.
As she has been battling the craving for cigarettes for some time now, we ask that you take her hand and help her through those rough patches. Give her strength to rely on you. Help her to reach for your word, reach for the phone for prayer or just reach out and call out to you. Lord, when she does in those weak and dark moments, answer her and answer her quickly. Please let her feel your presence and in your presence, give her the strength to choose good things for the body that you have given to her.
Lord, thank you that you have provided all of _____________’s needs. You are her physical, psychological, and emotional rock. She really needs nothing more than you. Show her that. Open her eyes to see herself the way that you see her.
Give her the determination to take care of her own body as well as she does to all that surround her. Give her the love that she needs to have for herself to take care of herself the way you would have her to.
In Jesus’ precious name, for the honor of taking care of the temple you have given ____________, Amen.”
