Spiritual Backslide....

Spiritual Backslide....

Postby Roger Craft on Sat Jun 18, 2005 11:13 am

I had a horrid spiritual backslide last night and would like prayers to keep me from temptation again. I've already confessed my sins to God but the remnants of those sins are still echoing in my mind. God Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference...just for today. In Jesus' precious name, Amen.<br>
<p>Peace and Blessings,<br>
<br>

I'll keep you in my prayers Roger.<!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :hugs --><img src=http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/11/11_2_104.gif ALT=":hugs"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> Sometimes we just have to take it one day at a time, sometimes one hour at a time. Satan never stops tempting us, Sin is a struggle, and you are not alone. You have many people here that really care about you. I pray the Almighty Father gives you the strength and courage to turn away from satan's temptations, and keep you focused on His precious Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. You'll be in my prayers dear brother.<br>

<!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :hugs --><img src=http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/11/11_2_104.gif ALT=":hugs"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> Glad you're feeling better Roger. God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, are the greatest comforters of all. No matter what we do, or how far we fall, they will always pick us up, tend to our bruises, kiss our foreheads, tell us they love us. Very soon we will meet the Lord Jesus in the air, we just have to keep on the full armor of God, pray always, and have faith. The time is near, very soon, we wont ever have to worry about the temptations of satan. Satan too, knows that the time is near. He is doing every horrible thing he can imagine to get us further away from God. We have to be on guard 24 hours a day, until the Lord comes again. I will continue to pray for you<!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :hugs --><img src=http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/11/11_2_104.gif ALT=":hugs"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <br>

Roger,<br>
For me, it starts with an "I want..." thought and that's where I start telling Jesus what I'm thinking, what I'm wanting and that leads to what I should want (and really do want--which is His will), then I ask Him to keep His promise about giving me a way out of this temptation(I Cor. 10:13). My part then comes in looking for that way out and taking it, because He is faithful every time. So, I'm praying for you to look for and take that way of escape that He has given you.<br>
