Dependency - on What or on Whom?

A prayer from Donald Deffner...

When I feel
the necessity
to eat more
to take another drink
or another pill
divert my craving
O Lord
to a greater need
for You
Take my suffering
deterioration and helplessness
and make my 
"bottoms up"
"one more for the road"
but rather a
hitting bottom
which results in my
total dependence
on You
that by the power
of Your Spirit alone
I may experience
Christ's resurrection
in my life
and look not 
but always see You
face to face
