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 any temptation, whether it is a temptation 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,
