Dear Lord Jesus,
I try hard not to fall in my walk of faith, but you know the temptations that I face today. I experience desires that take me away from you. Sometimes the temptation seems too strong for me. The desires seem too powerful to resist.
I need your help in this race. I cannot walk alone, Lord. I need your guidance. My flesh is weak. Please help me. Fill me with the power of your Holy Spirit to provide strength for me and I cannot make it without you.
Your Word promises that I will not be tempted more than I can bear. I ask for your strength to rise up against temptation each and every time I come across it. Help me to stay awake spiritually so that temptation won’t catch up on me by surprise. I want to pray every time so that I won’t be dragged away by evil desires. Help me to keep my spirit well fed with your Holy Word so that I remember you are living in me.
And you are greater than all the Powers of darkness and sin that is in the world.
Lord, you won over Satan’s temptations. You always understand my struggle. So I ask for the strength you had when were facing Satan’s attacks in the wilderness. Don’t let me be pulled away by my own desires. Instead, let my heart obey your Word.
Your Word also makes me to know that you will provide a way of escape from temptation.
Please, Lord, give me the wisdom to move away when I am tempted, and the clarity to see the way out that you will provide. Thank you, Lord, for you are a faithful deliverer and that I can count on your help in my time of need. Thank you for being here for me.
In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray,
