Relying on prayer is often the best thing we can do. It acknowledges that we trust Him with all our beings.
Can I Rely On The Powers Of Prayers?
One thing is sure, and that is that God listens when we pray. He is especially there when we are faithful and true to Him. He also invites us to call on him when we are in trouble.

Can Any Woman Pray For Her Husband?
The Bible instructs men to love their wives. This does not mean that women are excluded from such a command. It is easier for women who love their husbands to pray for them.
Women’s roles are to be of help to their husbands, as Genesis 2:18 says, “Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.”
Therefore, help in the form of prayer is an excellent way to fulfill the role God has set out for you.
Will These Prayers Really Work?
There are many testimonies of how God set people free from drug addiction. If there is no prayer said, we will never know whether the prayers work. Knowing God’s heart, though, we know that He does not ignore the calls from our hearts.
Prayer is the only way in which God can hear and answer our prayers. We ought to trust him for everything. Ephesians 3:20 says, “Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us.”
Believe in God. He will help you!
People often judge those who go through the deep struggles of drug addiction. Wives are often part of this judgment. However, you should rather ask God for help, especially if you see the pain it causes your family.
God does not cast any prayers aside, especially if they come from deep within your heart.
Pray for your husband that God will strengthen him to overcome the burden of drug addiction.
