Prayer for Forgiveness and Strength for Me to Get Away from Alcohol Abuse

by Bobb (Limerick)

Dear God,

Please give me the strength forgive my abusive partner, even thought she has no idea how wrong and at fault she is. Please give me the strength to stop making excuses and lying to myself and the world about it. I feel so weak because I feel like I am letting her down, by not understanding her pain and why she has to drink.

But I want strength to know that I have to be strong and know that drink is her problem, that has left her totally insecure, paranoid, and dangerously angry.

I pray for help and strength for both of us.
