Prayer for overcoming temptation
We all struggle with temptation from time to time. Whether it’s temptation over food or major sin, we can all relate to how destructive it is. In this prayer, we stand on God’s word to overcome temptation and live a life of victory.
To be victorious over temptation, release your faith by saying:
“Father in Jesus name, I believe (Mark 9:23, Mark 11:24) that I would not yield to temptation because whosoever commits sin is the servant of sin (John 8:34). I therefore choose to:
Make Jesus the source of my strength and help in temptation. (Hebrews 2:18)
Watch and pray. (Matthew 26:41)
Be spiritually minded and enjoy life and peace. (Romans 8:6-7)
Think soberly. (Romans 12:3, 1 Peter 1:13)
Think on whatsoever things are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of a good report, virtuous and praiseworthy. (Philippians 4:8)
I believe that I would:
Not be vain in my imaginations. (Romans 1:21)
Not conform to this world but be transformed by the renewing of my mind. (Romans 12:2)
Father in Jesus name, I believe that:
The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds, I therefore cast down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God and bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ, believing that my thoughts would be pleasing to You. (2 Corinthians 10:4-5, Proverbs 15:26)”
We hope that this prayer will help you in your fight against sin.
