Prayers for the Parched: Resisting Temptation

Resisting Temptation is a Daily Struggle

Resisting Temptation is a Daily Struggle

No temptation has seized you except what is common to man.  And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear.  But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.  1 Corinthians 10:13

 

Teach me to resist the devil at his onset

You will not allow any temptation in my life that

I am not strong enough to resist

 

Tear down any strongholds in my thinking that

Blind me fro you and your ways

May you alone be my strong hold

 

Guard me against any developmental footholds

Protect me, O God

 

Make me a stronger saint in this spiritual battle

Thank you for the weapons you have given us

O god, I need your help in these areas

You see what I cannot

I ask for strength to do (or not do)

What I should (or shouldn’t)

Meanwhile I ask you to guard me in the areas

I can’t know or see for reasons

I may not understand

Thank you for being God

While I struggle in this human conundrum
