Prayer for Wisdom to Leave Situations of Temptation
"For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin." Hebrews 4:15
"Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand." Ephesians 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 for wisdom to leave situations of temptation.
Jesus, merciful and faithful High Priest, You are with me always and see everything I do. Your Scripture says that we do not have a High Priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are — yet He did not sin. Fashion me in Your image. Give me Your wisdom and strength to avoid sinning. Show me when and how to flee from situations where I am tempted. If it means making some difficult decisions, give me the courage to make them. I want to devote myself to You, and I need Your Spirit to help me. Thank You, Jesus. Amen.
