“For if, having escaped the world's impurity through the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in these things and defeated, the last state is worse for them than the first.”
Father I come to You in the Name of Jesus, my Saviour and I thank You that HE died to pay the price for my sins and to set me free from the power of sin and death. Lord I particularly come to You today to seek Your face on this habit of smoking - a long-time habit that I have found so difficult to break.
Lord, I know that I am not condemned because of my smoking – nevertheless it is a habit that I truly want to break and have come to You to pray that You would give me Your grace and strength to help in this time of my need..
Lord, Your word says that I can do all things through Christ Who gives me the strength and I pray that You would indeed give me the strength to completely stop smoking and also to remove the desire that I have to light up. Lord I know that my body is a temple of the Holy Spirit and do not want this habit to be a master over my body and my will – but rather I want You alone to have first place in my life and within my body.
Give me the grace I pray to enable me to stop this habit completely, and to have the desire to smoke eliminated from me – and I will give You all the praise and glory, in Jesus name I pray,

Heavenly Father, thank You for the many warnings we are given in Your word about the dangers of false teachers and the devastation they can cause in the lives of those who become entangled with them. We pray for those who are attracted to a counterfeit gospel or embroiled in the false message of apostate teachers, without coming to a knowledge of the truth. Thank You that by grace through faith I am saved and my soul is guarded by Christ - through faith. Help those who are being fooled through false teaching into corrupt practices and sinful unbelief, through a lack of understanding... and open their eyes to the truth of the glorious gospel of grace - this we ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
