Pray for friend using video game addiction to escape real life issues

Please pray for my friend Adam as he has turned to video game addiction. I rarely hear from him because he is so engrossed with his online friends as well as playing many hours every single day. Pray that God opens his heart and finds a way to make him see that his addiction is just a defense mechanism to escape real life issues. Because of this, his behavior is changing for the worse. I hate seeing it. Please pray for him. Thanks!
