I wonder if anyone has prayers particularly for someone struggling with alcoholism. I am seeing someone tomorrow.

I know you are an Oriental Christian, so I don't know how comfortable you feel with this, but an oft used prayer in the Russian Church is an Akathist to the Theotokos "The Inexhaustible Cup."

Here is a link to it:

That's a most beautiful prayer! I have heard it being used for people that are plagued all kinds of addictions.

In Christ,
