(Please join me in this prayer of confession and repentance.)
Lord, I tell You the truth
Satan led me into the wilderness
He tempted me with bread
And I ate.
Yet You did not give into temptation
Your divine nature triumphed over sin
I confess my weakness to You.
I stand on grace.
I live in mercy.
It is sufficient to cover my sin
But I will press onward to the goal
To overcome my patterns of sin,
As I am transformed to Your likeness
By the Spirit living within me.
One day—yes, one day
I will beat Satan
And conquer my own repetitive sins
Through the strength in Christ Jesus—
My Lord, my Love, my All in All.
I will be undone in the One
Who gave His life for me
On the cross of Calvary
For the sins of the world.
He shed blood like tears
For those who were perishing
As He still does today
For those who reject Him.
Meet me here in the wilderness
And reject Satan’s temptation
So that we may live
Our lives to the fullest—
Free from the sin
That leads us to death.
In Christ’s Name, Amen.
