Prayer for Freedom from Temptation and to Live by Grace
"Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh." Romans 13:14
"For you, God, tested us; you refined us like silver." Psalm 66:10
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 freedom from temptation and to live by grace.
Lord Jehovah, my God, Self-Existent One, my flesh is weak. I wrestle with sin and I often fail. But You give more grace. Lord, I know I am not perfect but, by Your grace, I am improving. I know You began a work in me and will not leave it unfinished, but You will bring it to completion for the second coming of Jesus. I long for You to make me more like You. Thank You for Your grace, even in my failures. In the beautiful name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
