Facing our temptations
Updated: 4 days ago
Facing our temptations, acknowledging them, moves us toward repentance and draws us into the kingdom of God.
Lord, when it comes to temptation, I am weak. Like Paul, I want to do good, do what is right, to please you, but I continually give in to temptation. I bit the bait of the lure. I need you. I need your Spirit of Strength and Courage so that I may resist the temptations, the lures, that reach out to me. I need your Spirit of Insight and Inspiration so I may recognize when I am being lured by temptation. Open my eyes to my tendencies to desire what keeps me from your desires for me, those things that pull me away from you.
