41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
Today we shall be engaging in prayer points against falling into temptation. Temptations are real, and only a Christian can be tempted. Temptation is simply being pressed to do what you don’t want to do and not being able to do what you want to do. Romans 7:14-25, paints a great picture of a believer struggling with temptations, it reads:
“14 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. 15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. 16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good. 17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. 19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. 20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 21 I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. 22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: 23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. 24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? 25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.”
From the above scriptures, we see that there is a force of sin in the flesh of every human, always trying to pull us into the opposite direction. Every human inherited sin from the Adam, therefore sin is in us by default. The solution to sin is the saving grace of Jesus Christ. He is the only one who is without sin, therefore when we believe in Him, His righteousness becomes our righteousness, His holiness becomes our holiness. Our faith in Christ is what gives us right standing with God.
Having known this truth, one may ask, now that I am born again, how do I overcome temptations?
The answer is simple, through prayers. Prayers is a show of absolute dependence on the finished work of Jesus Christ. When we pray, the Ho!y spirit empowers us to say no to sin. No man can overcome sin in the flesh, that is why we must always pray to God for the grace to walk like Christ. Matthew 6:13, Jesus when teaching His disciples how to pray added that they should pray not to be lead into temptations, but rather to be delivered from all evils. This prayer points against falling in to temptation will deliver you from all evil traps of the devil in Jesus name. By this prayer points, you will overcome sin and Satan in Jesus name.
Before we go into this prayers, I want to quickly establish this fact, God is not mad at you, as a child of God, He loves you so much and He will never give up on you. There are no amount of sin in your life that will make Him turn away from you. Therefore pray this prayer points with great confidence in a loving Father. Also note that the purpose of these prayer points is to fire you up spiritually so that your spirit can be equipped to put your flesh under subjection. This prayer points against falling into temptation shall be your turning point in Jesus name. Remain blessed.
