You are the source of all strength and power. I come to You humbly, acknowledging my weakness and my tendency to fall into sin. I ask for Your strength to overcome the temptations and struggles that I face. Your Word tells me that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me, so I ask for that strength to rise above the sin that so easily entangles me.

Father, I confess my sins to You and ask for Your forgiveness. I know that I cannot overcome sin on my own, but I trust in Your grace and mercy to help me. Please grant me the wisdom and discernment to recognize the temptations and the courage to resist them. Help me to rely on Your Spirit, who lives in me, to guide me away from sin and towards righteousness.

I thank You, Father, for the promise of Your unfailing strength and the assurance of Your presence with me. I know that through Your power, I can conquer sin and live a life that is pleasing to You. Strengthen me, O Lord, and empower me to walk in obedience and faithfulness. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
