Prayer for Overcoming Temptation

Father, I cannot make it alone in this world, I need you every second, every minute, every hour in my life.

Continue to walk beside me and mold me as I progress, and strive to become a better, stronger person in You. Guide my actions, my thoughts, my words, my deeds. Allow me not to yield to temptation.

1 John 1:9  If we confess our sins, he is  faithful and just to forgive us our sins and  to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Luke 22:40  And when he came to the place, he said to them,  “Pray that you may not  enter into temptation.”

Yeshua, the battle against temptations is so strong, I struggle at times to fight it. Give me strength, Oh Lord, to walk away from the evil that tries to lure me in. Father, cleanse my mind, body and soul of anything that is not pleasing to You. Help me to follow in the footsteps of Christ and keep pure and holy, for my body is the temple of the Holy Ghost.

Galatians 5:16  But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.

Hebrews 2:18 For because he himself has suffered  when tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.

Lead me to the cross, Oh gentle Savior, rid me of myself because I belong to You. In Your presence is where I want to be. Yahweh, lead me to victory as I overcome the battle of sin and become a mighty, righteous warrior for You. In Jesus mighty name I pray, Amen!

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.
1 Corinthians 10:13

But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire.
James 1:14 

Submit yourselves therefore to God.  Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
James 4:7

    It is indeed difficult for one to walk righteous
    But nothing is impossible if we place our desires and temptations
    Into Your saving hands and pray for deliverance

    Fight all the lures and unwanted influence
    Protect and lead us in all Your goodness
    To people who will lead us in Your light of salvation.

    In Jesus precious name we pray, Amen
