Prayer for Strength to Stop Gambling

by Laura ()


I humbly ask you to forgive me my sins. You have blessed me time and again and I have squandered Your blessing. Please Lord, lead me back to You and Your love. Help release me from the devil that has gotten control of me. I am now in debt over my head and need your assistance to pay my bills. You have blessed me with a wonderful man and a future I never dreamed I could have. I fear I will loose him and the future you lay before me if I can not get control of my gambling. I beg you lord to take me back into Your fold, to help me see Your plan and to see to fruition to the dreams You have for me. Please Lord, help me to pay my loans and credit cards off quickly. I can live with the means you have provided me through my job, if I could releve myself of these debts before June and the start of my new life with R. Please Lord forgive me for leaving You from shame and fear. Please Lord, hear my prayer from a repentant heart and soul. I will only succeed through You. In the Lords name I pray, Amen

  2. I can't stop

    I need help and support. I have been casually gambling for 5 yrs but over this time I’ve dwindled my life savings and am now living wage to wage. (Much of which goes back in2 gambling) I can’t stop. I’m hiding it from my partner. I keep telling him I need to save and I’ve no money etc but the truth is if it wasn’t for the gambling I would have been able to save a nice little by now. I just can’t stop. Every time I get paid,i take out enough money for food and then gamble whatever is left in mu account. I just can’t seem to keep money idle in my account. If I have €60 left in my account after everything is paid for and that €60 wil go on gambling. I hate myself for what I’m doing. I’ve started ‘from scratch’ so many times and I mite last 2 wks then I’ll relapse and gamble whats in my account and hence start anew again….only to relapse again. My fiance knows I gamble but he doesn’t know I’ve continued to gamble and it’s becoming problematic. I want to tell him but I feel so guilty and ashamed. I feel like I’m letting him down but I’m confident he’d stand by me and support me. I want my life back. I’m sick was of telling my friends I’ve no money to do things when the truth is I’ve no money to do things cause I’ve gambled it away. I need to come clean. I’m sick of the deception aswel. I duno what to do. Please God help me through this.

  5. Gambling

    Since I was 17 years of age and I am now 51 I have been gambling on poker machines. They have changed my life and the way in which I live for all these years. God has blessed me with lots of ways in which I have been saved many times. The only way to stop gambling is just to stop. Don’t go there for anything, don’t have money on you. Don’t trust yourself with your key cards and don’t borrow money for any reason. I did this and it has only made matters worse. I cannot go into a club or put with poker machines it just makes me want to gamble more. So I am looking at other ways in which I cannot go and the only way is to pray and keep praying and stay away from Clubs, Pubs and any place that has a poker machine. I want to be free from debt. So this is what I have to do. Amen.

  6. We can do it!

    I stopped gambling for a year or more in 2015. I had hit rock bottom and had enough. I always look at gambling like I want to flip the money I already have and make it more so I whine of gambling everything I have. I’ve been to GA and learned the principles and still believe in them however I believe one must have self disiplined to stop gambling. With God on our side, a daily prayer, and the determination to quit, we can do it! I’m ready! Let’s do it!
