The 24th annual Just Pray No! weekend for the addicted is scheduled for April 26–27. The event is designated as the organization's "Worldwide Weekend of Prayer and Fasting."

Since April 7, 1991, Just Pray No! has united millions of Christians from 150 nations and territories around the world in intercessory prayer on behalf of the addicted and their families.

“Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much” (James 5:16).

Not only is substance abuse America’s No. 1 health problem, but the devastation of alcoholism and other drug addictions has impacted families and communities worldwide. Substance abuse has been directly linked to violence and sexual immorality and is a major source of income for organized crime and terrorist activities.

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places” (Eph. 6:12).

Make a formal commitment to join with believers in Christ from around the globe later this month. Put on the full armor of God and fervently pray in spirit and in truth. Just Say No! is seeking to enlist millions of prayer warriors from around the world to join in battle.

“We are not only praying for the release of those bound by substance abuse, but also for people to be delivered from pornography, gambling, obesity and smoking,” says Steven Sherman, the organization's founder. “We seek individuals and groups which are willing to commit to pray weekly on behalf of the addicted and their families, and then join with multitudes of other committed Christians from around the world in prayer and fasting April 26–27.”
