Struggling with Temptation? I Wrote a Prayer to Help You

I think temptation is something that we all struggle with. I know I do anyways, so I thought that I would write this prayer for those who do struggle with temptation.

Prayer Against Temptation

Lord Jesus Christ, for forty days you suffered temptations in the wilderness by the Devil and you emerged without yielding. Lord I am currently in my own wilderness and suffering temptations. Some of them seem impossible to overcome but with you Lord nothing is impossible. All that I need to do is ask, believing, and I shall receive. Moreover, there is no temptation that I am currently suffering that is not common to all mankind. Nor am I being tempted beyond what I can bear. Further, because you indwell me and you were tempted in all ways and without sin I too can resist any temptation. Lord I pray that these truths richly indwell me and that you purge me of all deceptions of the evil one. Please uplift my hands and strengthen my feeble knees. Give me a willing spirit that I may fully and completely resist the Devil, that he may flee from me. Thank you Lord for answering this prayer.
