James 1:12-14
Heavenly Father, I pray that You give me the strength to patiently endure testing and temptation.

Your Word says that blessed is the man who endures temptation, for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life. So, Lord I know that my temptation does not come from You, but from my fleshy desires. Help me flee from my temptation Lord so that I can receive that crown of life, Amen.

But I am assured that because of Your nature, You are faithful and will not allow the temptation to be more than I can stand. I pray that when I am tempted, I look to You so that You can provide a way out that I can endure it in line with Your Word; this is the prayer of my heart, Amen.

Galatians 6:9

I pray that I do not grow weary while doing good because at the right time, I will reap a harvest of blessing so long as I don’t give up. Give me the strength to flee from my fleshy desires Lord; this is the prayer of my heart, Amen.

1 John 3:18-20
Heavenly Father, I recognize that my addiction and alcoholic activities does not reflect Your truth, but I pray that everything I do and say, shall be done in deed and in truth in line with Your Word.

Therefore, I ask that You take away these untruthful desires, so that I can be confident when I stand before You, Amen.
