You are the source of all strength and wisdom. I come before You today, acknowledging my weakness in the face of temptation. I ask for Your guidance and protection as I strive to resist the temptations that surround me. Give me the strength to overcome the desires of the flesh and the wisdom to see through the lies of the enemy. Help me to focus on Your truth and walk in the path of righteousness.

I know that I cannot resist temptation on my own, but with Your help, I can be victorious. Fill me with Your Spirit and empower me to stand firm in the face of temptation. Give me the discernment to recognize the traps that the enemy sets before me and the courage to turn away from them. I surrender my weaknesses to You and ask for Your divine strength to help me overcome them.

Father, I thank You for the promise that You will not allow me to be tempted beyond what I can bear. I trust in Your faithfulness and claim Your victory over temptation in my life. I commit to seeking You first and trusting in Your power to overcome temptation. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
