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,
“Where no wood is, there
the fire goeth out: so where there is
no talebearer, the strife ceaseth.”
“A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth.”
“But thanks be
to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
“But thou hast saved us from our enemies, and hast put them to shame that hated us.”
“Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that
shall tread down our enemies.”
“For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.”
“For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.”
“And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.”
“And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.”
