Prayer For Self Control And Self-Discipline

PATREON SUPPORTERS Log-in here to remove ads

Almighty Father, in this world filled with goodness, evil, pleasure, leisure, lust and temptations, my desire is to have the fruit of Your Spirit evident in my daily life. Grant me Father I pray, a spirit of self control. May I face all issues of life with calmness and control, from self and over-indulgence.

The urge to succumb to desires and the pull of worldly pleasures sometimes overshadows the gentle nudging of Your Holy Spirit. Yet, I am reminded that with You, all things are possible, and through Your strength, I can exhibit the self-control that seems so elusive.

Heavenly Father, grant me the wisdom to discern between fleeting pleasures and lasting joy. Let my heart be anchored in Your Word, drawing from its depth the strength and courage to exercise restraint in moments of weakness.

As I seek self-discipline, may I also remember that it is a reflection of a heart fully surrendered to You. A heart that desires to honor You above all else.

2 Peter 1: 5-7 Make every effort to add to your faith goodness, and to goodness, knowledge, and to knowledge, self-control, and to self-control, perseverance, and to perseverance, godliness, and to godliness, mutual affection, and to mutual affection, love.

Proverbs 25:28 A man without self-control is like a city broken into and left without walls.

Self Control As “God-control”

Father, please forgive me for the times I have said and done things rashly. Please remind me to consider self-control as “God-control”. It’s not trying to control myself with human effort. But rather it is depending on the Holy Spirit to guide my ways and choices.

Lord Jesus Christ, You defeated satan in his attempts to tempt you to flaunt Your power with a spirit of self control. And now I call upon Your blessed name. I ask You to bless me with this virtue, which is very much needed in most aspects of life.

I seek Your assistance and guidance. May Your Holy Spirit fill me with power, as I come in prayer and raise my supplications before You.

Titus 2:11-13 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age.

Over-coming Sexual Temptations

Lord Jesus, empower me with a spirit of self control when I’m tempted with sexual desires and lusts over the flesh. Help me to restraint myself from thoughts of lust. May I be pure in heart, mind and soul.

In my relationships, may I practice self-control. May I not give in to others in sexual desires except within the bond of marriage.

May I grow in deeper mutual understanding, respect, honor. And, most of all, may I grow in love for my brothers and sisters, even as I grow in self control to be able to counter and defeat most issues in life.

1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour.

Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;”

Prayer For Self-discipline

I pray for a spirit of self-discipline as I deal with money, wealth, my daily living habits and my pleasures. Help me to do all in moderation and in accordance with your will.

As a family, may we keep ourselves in the right perspective. May we to live a life, evenly spread with all joys and pleasures that are blessed in Your eyes.

May we never indulge in anything impure and illicit. And may our choices be never rash or impulsive. Help us Lord to pray and receive the guidance of the Holy Spirit in all our decisions of family work, friendship and relationships.

Romans 12:2 “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”

Facing Life’s Challenges

In the challenges and hurdles of daily life, maintaining self-control and self-discipline can seem like an uphill battle. The struggles of the flesh, the barrage of external influences, and the inner conflicts of the mind often threaten to sweep me away from the path of righteousness.

In these moments, Lord, I pray for a heightened awareness of Your presence. May the Holy Spirit remind me of the eternal reward that comes with walking in obedience to Your Word.

As I face tests of patience, confrontations of anger, and battles against lust, greed, and pride, let me be girded with the armor of Your Word. By seeking You and immersing myself in Scripture, empower me to grow in self-discipline and self-control.

Let the helmet of salvation guard my thoughts, the shield of faith fend off the enemy’s darts, and the sword of the Spirit, which is Your Word, give me the fortitude to stand firm in the face of temptation.

1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation, he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.

2 Timothy 1:7 For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.

Prayer For Deliverance From Temptation

Lord Jesus, I believe and trust that You will deliver me from temptations and self indulgence as I place my heart in Your loving care.

Though I may stumble, Your mighty power will lead me back in focus and self control. You will deliver me from the evil schemes of satan.

I believe in the power of the Holy Spirit. May I be renewed daily with a fresh filling of Your Spirit, as I come and surrender myself. In Your blessed name Lord Jesus Christ I pray, Amen!

Ephesians 3:20 “Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us.”

Declaration: God is on my side: therefore, I declare that I cannot, I will not, be defeated.
