Praying for victory over sin

Psa 141:1-5 LORD, I cry unto thee: make haste unto me; give ear unto my voice, when I cry unto thee. Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice. Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips. Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to practise wicked works with men that work iniquity: and let me not eat of their dainties. Let the righteous smite me; it shall be a kindness: and let him reprove me; it shall be an excellent oil, which shall not break my head: for yet my prayer also shall be in their calamities.

Here is an excellent prayer for each of us today. Pray it from your heart to the Lord and ask Him to do this work in your life.

Ask Him to make haste and hear and respond to you. He tells you to pray this way via the psalmist prayer so pray it.

Ask Him to recognize your worship and your prayers. Make sure that you are seeking Him right now.

Let’s ask God to work in our lives to keep our mouths and our words in such a way that they will bring honor and glory to Him. Obviously God wants our words and the way we talk to be pleasing to Him and so we should be asking for help with that today.

Ask God to help our hearts not to after things that do not please God. It is so important that He be loved and honored and not those that do things that are not pleasing to Him.

Ask God to help you maintain your separation from those who want to walk against the will of God and practice evil. Ask Him to help your heart not be attracted to what you know does not please God.

There is pleasure in sin for a season but ask God not to even allow this temporary pleasure to attract you. Hebrews 11:25

Be willing to accountable. Be willing to be corrected by those that love you. Allow God to put people in your life that will help you to follow Him. Iron sharpens iron! Proverbs 27:17
