Prayers for wife

Please pray for my wife who is struggling to overcome an addiction. It is tearing us apart.

Lord have mercy!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

May The Lord help her overcome the addiction and bring peace to the family.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Lord, have mercy on militantsparrow and his wife. Grant her strength to overcome her addiction. Grant him strength to support her in the struggle.

Lord, have mercy on militantsparrow's wife and himself and their family. Saint Ephraim of Nea Makri pray for them. Saint Anastasia of Rome pray for them.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.
