Prayer for James 4:17 ►
“So, for the person who knows to do good and doesn't do it, it is a sin.”
Dear Lord, I know that my smoking has become sinful because it is has such a strong hold over me. Lord I confess that I have allowed my smoking to take over, and to rule my life – even allowing it to dictate to my God-given volition and will – and Father I know that this in not Your will for my life – I want to change and to give up smoking and ask for Your help in this matter.
So Lord, I humbly come to You asking to put my life into Your hands, so that it is Your will that is done in my life. Lord, I want what You know is best for my life and I know that being addicted to smoking is not what You would will for me – and so, into Your hands I surrender myself – I surrender my will to smoke into Your hands – and pray that moment by moment and in the power of Your Holy Spirit, I will give every desire to smoke into Your gracious hands and take captive this destructive craving. Thank You for loving me so much that You died to break the power of sin in my life – including this ungodly addiction that is so ruinous.
May Your will be done in my life – Give me the desire and the will to stop this addiction and thank You Father for hearing my prayer and for always being there for me, in Jesus name I pray,

Heavenly Father, thank You for this truth in the book of James, that when I know what is righteous.. and yet do not do it, I am committing a sin in Your eyes. Forgive me for the times when I have done things that are wrong and avoided doing what is right, or turned a blind eye to some need or necessity. Thank You that in Christ I have all that I need to live righteously, in this troubled world, and from this day forward I pray that I would not only know what is right, but be ready and willing to carry it out, through Your sufficient strength, and for Your greater glory, this I ask in Jesus name AMEN.
