His Temptation

Lord, I pray that You would strengthen my husband to resist any temptation that comes his way.  Stamp it out of his mind before it ever reaches his heart or personal experience.  Lead him not into temptation, but deliver him from evils such as adultery, pornography, drugs, alcohol, food addiction, gambling, and perversion.  Remove temptation especially in the area of (name specific temptation) Make him strong where he is weak.  Help him to rise above anything that erects itself as a stronghold in his life.  May he say, "I will set nothing wicked before my eyes; I hate the work of those who fall away; it shall not cling to me" (Psalm 101:3).

Lord, You've said that "Whoever has no rule over his own spirit is like a city broken down, without walls" (Proverbs 25:28).  I pray that (husband's name) will not be broken down by the power of evil, but raised up by the power of God.  Establish a wall of protection around him.  Fill him with Your Spirit and flush out all that is not of You.  Help him to take charge over his own spirit and have self-control to resist anything and anyone who becomes a lure.  May he "abhor what is evil.  Cling to what is good" (Romans 12:9).  I pray that he will be repulsed by tempting situations.  Give him courage to reject them.  Teach him to walk in the Spirit so he will not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
