Morning Prayer: Our City and Drunkenness



Partying and the bar scene are important to New Orleans culture, especially as they encourage the music scene. But for some, drinking has become a way of life, and the music scene and various festivals, no least of which is Mardi Gras, make it socially acceptable. The church crowd is often not exempt from this mentality, and many christians go astray by getting drunk and by doing things they otherwise wouldn’t while intoxicated. This is a cultural principality and power which has a strong sway in our city.

PRAYER: Father, we want to escape from the hardships of this world and we often turn to alcohol to numb the pain. Lord, fill us instead with the comforting presence of the Spirit. Set free those who are enslaved to alcohol, who run away from the hardships of life, or who cannot enjoy life without it. Grant to this city a desire to pursue you and the fullness of a life following Jesus. Amen.
