In The Face Of Temptation
Heavenly Father, I come before Your throne of grace, fully aware of my weaknesses and shortcomings. Help me, Oh Loving Father, to break every chain of temptation. Tear down these strongholds that are weakening me. Bind every evil spirit that attempts to lure me into the dark abyss.
Every day, as I navigate through this earthly journey, I am bombarded by temptations that challenge my resolve to stay on the narrow path. I find myself often ensnared by worldly desires, pulled away from Your embrace, and lured into actions and thoughts that do not honor You. The weight of these chains feels unbearable at times.
But in the midst of my struggles, I’m reminded of Your unwavering love and the power of Your might. You, O Lord, who conquered death, surely can deliver me from the snares that seek to entrap me.
As I lift this prayer, I seek Your strength, guidance, and wisdom to overcome the temptations that persistently knock at my door. Help me to resist, to stand firm in faith, and to always choose Your ways above all else.
1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. 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 endure it.
James 1:14-15 But each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.
Prayer for Deliverance from Temptation
Heavenly Father, I come before You acknowledging my struggles with temptation. These chains seem unbreakable, and I often feel powerless against them. Yet, I believe in Your promise to provide a way out of every temptation.
I ask for Your strength and guidance to navigate through these challenges. Help me to recognize the moments of weakness and to seek Your face in those critical times.
I confess my sins to You, knowing that You are faithful and just to forgive. Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.
Teach me to walk in Your ways and to resist the enticements that lead me away from You. Break the chains of temptation in my life, and set me free to live in the abundance of Your grace and righteousness.
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.
Psalm 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.
Praying For Discernment In Times of Temptation
Lord, grant me the discernment to recognize temptations for what they truly are – snares set by the enemy to derail me from Your purpose. When my flesh cries out for what it wants, let Your Spirit within me sound a louder alarm, calling me back to righteousness.
May I not be deceived by the fleeting pleasures of sin, but instead, let me see the long-term consequences of yielding to temptation.
Equip me with a discerning spirit that distinguishes right from wrong, truth from deceit, and godliness from wickedness. As I make choices daily, may I always opt for the path that leads me closer to You, even when it’s contrary to my human desires.
Hebrews 5:14 But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of discernment trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil.
Philippians 1:9-10 And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ.
Seeking Refuge In God’s Word
Lord, Your Word says that it is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. When temptations come my way, let me turn to the Scriptures for guidance and strength.
Implant Your Word deep within my heart, so when I’m on the verge of succumbing, the truths of the Bible spring forth, guiding me back to righteousness.
Just as Jesus quoted scripture when tempted by the devil in the wilderness, equip me with verses to combat the lies and deceptions that assail me. Let Your Word be my ultimate source of strength, my go-to refuge in times of temptation, and my reminder of the promises You have for those who remain faithful.
Psalm 119:11 I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.
Matthew 4:4 Jesus answered, ‘It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”
Covered By The Blood
These evil entities try to control my thoughts daily. I rebuke them, in Jesus’ mighty name! The hand of Lucifer will never fall on me, Oh Lord, for I am covered under Your precious Blood.
Lead me. Guide me. Walk beside me, so that I may not stray or fall by the wayside. But if I do, Lord, please pick me up and hold me in Your loving arms.
Hebrews 2:18 – Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.
1 Corinthians 10:13 – The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.
Breaking The Chains Of Temptation
Lord, your loving kindness, and tender mercies are new every morning, therefore I choose to repent now before it is too late.
Temptations will not get the better of me because I am a warrior in Your army and the battle is already won.
In the mighty name of Jesus, I break all those chains of temptation. Sin no longer has a hold on me. My eyes are on the Lord. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen!
James 4:7 – Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
1 Peter 5:8-11 Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings. And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.
