Why Should I Pray?

What Prayer is Not

Prayer is not a "magic formula" that will make all your problems go away. Prayer is not a way of getting God on your side. Prayer is talking with God through praise or petition, acknowledging who he is and sharing your heart with him.

"Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” ( Matt. 26:41 )

There is great power in prayer - especially when you pray the Truth of Scripture..

In this battle you are facing right now, it is vital that you talk with God about it.  There is great power in prayer - especially when you pray the Truth of Scripture.  Here are some suggestions for a prayer time right now.

Focus Your Prayers First on God

Take a few moments to focus your prayers on God - remember, for real and lasting victory over an addiction to pornography, lust and masturbation - self needs to come off the throne.

  • Father, You are my Lord (not porn, not lust, not masturbation ... You); apart from you I have no good thing (Psalm 16:2). Help me right now in this battle to keep you first in my life.
     
  • I trust in You, O Lord; You are my God - not lust, not porn, not masturbation - YOU (Psalm 31:14). I know that only You can help me have victory. Thank you for what you are doing in my life right now (Romans 8:28)!
     
  • I give thanks to You, Father (Psalm 106:1), for You are good and your steadfast love endures forever (Psalm 118:28-29). Though I may not feel loved at this moment, I rest on the unfailing promise of Your Word that You do love me unconditionally (1 Corinthians 13:1-8).
     
  • There is no one in Heaven but You! And there is nothing on earth that can satisfy me, or meet my needs more than You - and that includes porn, lust and masturbation. I am battling right now with the sinful desires of my flesh; but God, You are the strength of my heart and my portion forever (Psalm 73:25).
     
  • O Lord, how majestic is YOUR name in all the earth (Psalm 8:1). This life is not about me, my selfish satisfaction or glorifying myself.
     
  • Father, even now as I'm struggling with the temptation to give in to sin, I acknowledge that You are my rock, my fortress and only You can deliverer me from myself. Because you are my rock, right now I take refuge in You. As I endure this attack I cry out that You alone are my shield, the horn of my salvation, and my stronghold in this time of trouble (Psalm 18:2-3).
     
  • I cannot fight this battle against lust alone. I cannot win in my own strength. You are the One who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect. You enable me to stand in the rough times. You teach me how to fight the enemy as I study Your Word. You give me your shield of victory. It is Your right hand that sustains me. Only You will broaden the path beneath me, so that my ankles do not turn (Psalm 18:32-36).
     
  • You are the God who cares about me! Please listen to my prayer ... this is coming honestly from my heart to you (Psalm 17:1).
     

Focus Your Prayers on the Battle Against Porn & Your Need for Victory

Now let's focus our thoughts on the battle, and the need that is before us.

  • I am calling to You right now because I know You will answer me. I ask You to listen to me right now - hear my prayer for help. Please show me the wonder of Your great love. I am taking my refuge in You, save me Father (Psalm 17:6-7).
     
  • Father, right now I confess my sin to You _____ (name your sin(s) and agree with God that it is sin - 1 John 1:9).
     
  • For the sake of Your name, O Lord, forgive my sins, though they are great (Psalm 25:11).
     
  • I am Your servant Lord, and I am struggling with temptation right now. Please help me stay away from willful sins (making the choice to look at porn, lust after women or masturbate); I do not want them to rule over me. I want to be blameless before You, innocent of breaking Your law. I want everything I think, say and do - right now - to be pleasing in Your sight (Psalm 19:13-14).
     
  • Show me the idols of my heart - the things I'm worshipping instead of You - and help me get rid of them ... help me to never turn away from You again to pursue useless idols like pornography, not ever (1 Samuel 7:3; 12:20-21). I am choosing to get rid of all my foreign gods right now (Joshua 24:23)!
     
  • Help me to focus my mind right now on You, not on myself and what I think would bring me pleasures (Colossians 3:2).
     
  • Help me to clothe myself with You right now - to focus my life around glorifying You; and help me to not even think about how to gratify the sinful desires of my flesh (Romans 13:14).
     
  • I know Your word is living and powerful, and that it helps me with my thinking (Hebrews 4:12), so please help me to always delight in Your word and meditate on it right now (Psalm 1:2).
     
  • I count myself as dead to sin right this very moment - my life is in You Lord (Romans 6:11).
     
  • Show me how to live by Your Spirit, and help me to apply Your truth to my life right now so that I won't gratify the desires of my flesh (Galatians 5:16).
     
  • Through Your power, Father, I will NOT let sin reign in my body - I do not want to obey its evil desires, I want to obey You. I offer my mind and body to You right now. You are my Master and King (Romans 6:12-14).
     
  • God, you are able to do immeasurably more than all that I can ask or imagine - THANK YOU FOR THIS VICTORY - to you alone be glory (Ephesians 3:20-21).
     
  • Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me (Psalm 51:10).
     
  • Show me Your ways, O Lord, teach me Your paths; guide me in Your truth and teach me, for You are God my Savior, and my hope is in You right now and all day long (Psalm 25:4-5).
