Dear Heavenly Father, I know that I am a sinner and that I am in a lifelong war against the desires of my own flesh. When my sinful thoughts come upon me, help me to resist them. Give me protection from falling into relapse. Cause me to hate my sins, and instead to seek only after righteousness. Guard me against the snares of the devil, and to stand firm against the temptations that I face. I set my hope on You, that You will uphold me. Thank You, God. Amen.
