Prayer for strength against temptation

Heavenly and merciful Father, I can no longer make it alone in this world. Lord, I need you each and every second, every minute, every hour of my life.

Continue to walk beside me and mold me as I progress, and strive to become a better, stronger person in You. Guide my actions, my thoughts, my words, my deeds. Allow me not to yield to temptation.

1 John 1:9  If we confess our sins, he is  faithful and just to forgive us our sins and  to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Luke 22:40  And when he came to the place, he said to them,  “Pray that you may not  enter into temptation.”

The battle against temptations is strong

Yeshua, the battle against temptations is so strong, I struggle at times to fight it. Give me strength, Oh Lord, to walk away from the evil that tries to lure me in.

Father, cleanse my mind, body and soul of anything that is not pleasing to You. Help me to follow in the footsteps of Christ and keep pure and holy, for my body is the temple of the Holy Ghost.

Galatians 5:16  But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.

Hebrews 2:18 For because he himself has suffered  when tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.

Lead me to victory

Lead me to the cross, Oh gentle Savior. Rid me of myself because I belong to You. In Your presence is where I want to be.

Yahweh, lead me to victory as I overcome the battle of sin and become a mighty, righteous warrior for You. In Jesus mighty name I pray, Amen!

1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man.  God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.

James 1:14  But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire.

James 4:7  Submit yourselves therefore to God.  Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

I’m a young Christian, from South Trinidad, seeking the wisdom of the Word and God’s blessings on my life. A journey, that’s just begun, but living to the Glory of God.

I really enjoy poetry, well the poetry that rhymes anyway. I came across this and thought I would share it.  It’s lovely!


Oh, Mary ! Mother Mary!

We place our trust in thee

Our faith shall never wary,

Though weak the flesh may be.

Too oft with steps unwary,

From duty we have bent:

Oh, Mary! Mother Mary!

Thou teach us to repent.

The grisly form of terror

Now rises on our way;

Now more seductive error

“Would lead our feet astray.

Satan is strong and wary,

But thou wilt crush his might:

Oh, Mary! Mother Mary!

Strengthen us in the fight.

From dangerous occasions

That blind, imprudent eyes

 From treacherous persuasions

That point not to the skies.

From mirth too light and airy,

From thought too sad and deep :

Oh, Mary! Mother Mary!

Thy little children keep.

Let us remember ever

The presence of the Lord;

Let us with fond endeavor

Obey his holy “Word.

As Monster, or as Fairy,

Satan may take the field

But Mary ! Mother Mary !

Thy name will be our shield.
