PRAYER: Lord Jesus, give me the strength to overcome the temptations in my life. Amen!
WHY PRAY THIS?: Many will agree with me that temptation comes in stages as affirmed in 1 Corinthians 10:13 that “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.”
But will you agree that “the more times we resist temptation the less we are tempted? Think about it. Anyone who has ever begun fat-fitness exercise program or gone on a diet or tried to quit masturbation, smoking and many more evil knows that the hardest part is getting started. The longer you wait to begin, the harder it is to start, and it is possible to put it off for so long that the chances for success against such grow very very slim. See example of your Jesus Christ and Lord who “gba temptation mu” in the bud. HE said no from the very beginning-and so should we do. I know how many evil I think of everyday, even at work or in Church, and how well the Holy Spirit have helped me against such evils. So, I must say “Blessed is anyone who endures temptation. Such a one has stood the test and will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him”. Peace be unto You!
