Prayer to Get Help from Others if Needed
"All my longings lie open before you, Lord; my sighing is not hidden from you." Psalm 38:9
"And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one..." Matthew 6:13
Temptation is a challenge that each person faces throughout their lives. Understanding the nature of temptation, its dangers, and how to resist it can strengthen our resolve and deepen our faith.
Temptation is the enticement to engage in sin, while sin is the actual act of disobeying God's will. It's important to remember that God does not tempt us, but we are tempted by our own sinful desires and worldly passions.
Here is a powerful prayer to get help from others if needed and resist temptation.
Lord of heaven’s armies, You say that iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another. I know You do not intend for me to fight alone. Rather, You have placed fellow soldiers around me for mutual support and encouragement. Give me the humility to go to trusted friends and ask for prayer, accountability, encouragement, and advice. Help me to walk in the light with them and honestly confess when I have failed. Master Potter, help me to persevere through these battles and shape me in the image of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
