Prayer can be beneficial to our emotional and physical health
Prayer has been shown to be beneficial to our emotional and physical health, both individually and collectively. Prayers can help us maintain a positive outlook and improve our mental and physical health.

How to start praying for someone
There is no one answer to this question as different people pray for different people and what works for one person may not work for another. However, here are a few tips on how to start praying for someone:
1. Begin by thinking about the person you are praying for and what kind of prayer you would like to offer them. There is no right or wrong way to pray, but some ideas include expressing gratitude for the good in their life, asking God to bless them and guide them, or offering words of encouragement.
2. Make a list of all the things you know about the person you are praying for – what their favorite thing to do is, what makes them happy, etc. This will help you focus your prayers on specific things.
3. Every day, try spending at least five minutes in prayer for the person you are praying for. This can be done in private if that is preferred, or shared with God via a personal prayer statement or meditation.
4. Finally, don’t be afraid to ask for help when praying for someone else – whether that means asking God to give you specific guidance or assistance, or requesting that He use someone else in your friend’s life to help

This prayer is written for someone who is struggling with an addiction to sugar, but it could also be applicable if your friend has an addiction to drugs or alcohol. The goal of this prayer is not to offer a quick fix or to tell your friend what he or she needs to do in order for their addiction to go away; the goal is simply to provide support and guidance as they journey through their recovery process.
