Oh Lord, You have my heart. Free me from the temptations of the evil one. He comes at me with full force and I know that only You can shield me from Him. Satan knows my weaknesses and pulls at my strings so often. He puts things in my conscience that look so appealing. Things I would’ve given into when I was addicted. Take away the snares in my life that try to trap me. Take all my weaknesses and give me strengths. Help me to know how to act when I feel drawn in the wrong direction. Help me to 1“abhor that which is evil” and 1“cleave to that which is good.” That I may live what I teach without hypocrisy. Shield me with Your armor. Always be with me, that I may know how to walk. You are my light and my strength. My heart desires Your love. It fulfills my soul. Help me to always be obedient to Your will. That I may walk in Your ways.
When I lost my heart, I found You. When I finally put down my lusts and addictions I found Your presence. I still struggle with temptations but You lift me up. In prayer, You’ve heard my cries. You’ve swept me off my feet. Your love has become ever so vibrant in my life. Your love gives me freedom from sin. There isn’t any addictive substance that compares to the joy You bestow upon me. I am satisfied beyond measure. My life is Yours. I give my whole heart to You as a holy sacrifice. I no longer want to be 1“conformed to this world”. You’ve given me a new outlook on life. I can see the good and that is what I long for. Transform my heart that I might walk more earnestly with You. Renew my soul each day that I seek You. That I might have Your presence always in my life. I long to be with You. Your ways are my ways. I love You.

1Romans 12:1-9 (KJV)
1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
4 For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:
5 So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
6 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;
7 Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching;
8 Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.
9 Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.
