A Prayer Of Resistance To Sin

“Father, Jesus warns us that Satan seeks to agitate us like wholesome grain that is being sifted from worthless chaff. You know the chaff we cling to such as doubts, fears, half-heartedness, slothfulness and other harmful debris that weakens or destroys our faith and our testimony. Help us not to resent the trials and temptations of this life that act as a filter forcing us to give up that which is uncomely to the Christian character; that which holds us back instead of moving us forward keeping us steadfast in our faith. We thank You, Jesus, that You faithfully intercede for us, in the siftings and shakings of life. Lord of harvest, grant that we wholesome grain and pure may be. Amen.”
