Prayer for Self-Control

Heavenly Father,

I pray that you will plant self-control in me so that I grow up like a tree rooted in your strength. ย Lord, please help me reign in my passions, desires and emotions, and make them subject to your Spirit. Please focus my eyes on you that I may avoid falling into my freshly impulses.

Fill me with Your Holy Spirit. Allow me to display self-control when temptations draw near. Make me pure, holy, and true to You when satan tries to intervene.

Give me peace of mind, body, and soul so that I remain focused on You and Your word daily. Let Your word be the bread I crave and need more than the air I breathe.





My Prayer Today


Lord, thank you for Your unending love and grace. You have blessed me in so many ways. I am so thankful for the gift of everlasting life, my husband, precious children, loving and ever supportive parents, sisters who are God given best friends with whom I share a special bond, my loving extended family whom all love me and have helped shape me into the God fearing woman I am today, and the prayers of loving friends and family.

I know you are carrying me down the beach of life as I struggle now. You will never leave me or forsake me. Please quiet my mind. Show me what to do next. Help me to find balance.

I love you more than words can express, more than anyone, or anything. I cannot fathom Your greatness. You meticulously planned and created the entire vastness of our universe, from the inner workings of an atom, to the number of hairs on my head, to each star and planet in the universe.

Because you can do all things, I know you will lift me up and carry me to solid ground. This storm will not destroy me because you are fighting my battle!

In Jesus Name, Amen
