We're not perfect. We've all sinned, we still sin, and we'll probably sin again. We strive to be perfect like Your Son, yet we all have an area where we fall short. We call them vices, habits, tendencies, or curses, but in truth they are sin and they keep us from an intimate relationship with You, Lord.
It's not comfortable but Lord we're asking that You help us to remove that sin from our lives. Let it be today, God. Right now we walk away from the stronghold that divides us from righteousness. Give us Your strength to resist the sin that our human nature wants to hold onto. Give us the ability to stand firm when we are tempted. Whatever it may be Lord, we ask for a complete removal. And if there are sins that we don't recognize, we pray that You will make them evident so that we may delivered from it.
"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walk about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith." 1 Peter 5:8, 9a
"He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love." Colossians 1:13
