Prayer For Sufficient Grace To Stop Smoking

Loving Father - I come to You to pray that You would help me to give up smoking. Father in my heart I feel that I am not being a good witness to those around me – and although I know that there is no sin in smoking – nevertheless my heart desires to quit this habit,- in order to help to be an encouragement to others, who are struggling with the habit of smoking – both believers and non-believers alike.

Lord I pray that You would take away the desire to smoke and replace it with more and more of a desire to know You more and to draw ever closer to You in the days that lie ahead – Lord, I believe that You are willing and able to give me the strength to quit and to You be all praise in Jesus name,

Amen
“And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:”
