Father God I do not deserve Your mercy or grace – I am not worthy to gather the crumbs from under Your table but I thank You that I have been redeemed by the blood of the Lamb and in Jesus name am able to approach Your throne for the grace and strength I need to keep me from falling, so that I may walk in Your ways and live godly in Christ Jesus.
Lord, I desire to be faithful, but I have yielded to temptation on so many occasions and though I have tried so hard to live up to my own standards and resolution.. each time I have failed and fallen short. Lord, I know that I have tried to resist in my own strength and I confess that I cant do this by myself any more.
I pray that You would teach me to draw my strength from Your fathomless resources rather than to rely on my own limited supply. Teach me to trust my life into Your hands completely and to submit to the leading of the Holy Spirit in my life, so that I may walk in spirit and truth. Teach me what it really means in Your word when it says “without me you can do nothing,” so that I may learn the truth – that “I can do all things through Christ Jesus, Who gives me the strength” I ask this in Jesus name
O God, the troubles are many. The trials are great. The temptations are strong but I remember there is no temptation that comes to man that is unique or has never come to another. We are taught that Jesus suffered all temptations that are common to man and yet “In Him was no sin neither was guile found in His mouth.”
O Lord, my God, keep me pure within that I may live a clean, pure life that will not disgrace Thee and will bring me the greatest benefit.
I believe, O God, that peace of mind is attainable. I believe peace of mind to be Thy will for all people. I will not be denied nor will I ask that it be given to me as a package. I will seek, work, and find—God helping me.
Heavenly Father I believe that temptation is not a sin while yielding to temptation certainly is – and so I come to pray that You would help me not to yield to temptation – whether they are temptations of the body or the mind – keep me pure in thought, word and deed for Lord I want to follow You and I want to live my life to Your honour and praise.
Father I believe that no temptation comes to any of us that is not common to all men and that by Your grace You always provide an escape from temptation. Help me not to be tempted and give me the eyes to see and grasp hold of the escapes from temptation that You, in Your grace offer me.
Lord You know the areas of my vulnerabilities and You know when and how I will be tempted today and in the days that lie ahead, and Lord – although I know that I must make the choice not to succumb to temptation I do ask that you would prompt me to flee temptation, and to walk in the light of the glorious gospel of truth, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN
Dear Lord Jesus I know that my flesh desires to do what is contrary to the leading of the indwelling Holy Spirit of God, and that the new life in Christ, which I received when I was born again, is constantly in conflict with the old sin nature – which was severed at the cross but which still seeks to rule my life. Lord I know that sin is certainly crouching at my door and seeking to devour me - but I do believe that greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world and that in the power of the Holy Spirit I am able to resist the many temptations that entice towards sin.
Help me to recognise when temptation is knocking at my door and enable me to act immediately, so as to resist its influence and gain the victory, which only comes through Christ.
Help me not only to recognise temptation but to capture each and every tempting thought as it enters my mind and to hand it over to You in prayer and praise, knowing that Your grace is sufficient to meet every temptation, when I am yielded to You.
Lord I pray that not only will you enable me to recognise and resist temptation but may I grow in grace and in the knowledge of You as I seek to carry out Your will for my life in the power of the Spirit, in Jesus name I pray.
Dear Lord Jesus, I ask for Your strength and help to resist ungodly temptations and not to give in, knowing that to do is not to glorify You and does me nothing but emotional and spiritual harm.
Help me to take every tempting thought captive and hand it over to You before it takes a hold of me and does harm to me or to other people. Help me in my weakness to know You as my strength and help me in my foolishness to know You as my wisdom. Help me I pray to resist all forms of temptation and give me the strength to say no and walk away from temptation, especially when there are others involved, who directly or indirectly –willingly or unknowingly are encouraging my downfall. And deliver me Lord I pray, from habits that are entrapping and enslaving me in actions that are detrimental to my spiritual health and walk.
Replace the thoughts that tempt and tease with those that turn my focus on Jesus and help me in all things and learn to say, Thy will not mine be done, in Jesus name I pray,
