Let Him Know You’re Here With Your Heart Wide Open

Prayer to Say Before Eating While Fasting

This is a prayer you say while after a period of fasting while breaking your fast. You could say

Lord!  Bless this food that I’m about to eat now. Provide for those who don’t have anything to eat right now. For I have fasted, I know you have poured new refreshment, peace, and passion into my heart.

Please help to keep hold of this new treasure in my heart so that I won’t trespass. Lord, remind me each day to not follow worldly things and taking comfort of food.  Thank you for this food and drink. Amen.

Prayer to Resist Temptation

Temptations are an inevitable part of human life. It’s sure to happen, and nobody is above it. Even Jesus wasn’t above it. However, he overcame it.  Jesus, being tempted, gave us the best example of how to overcome temptation.

Looking at the book of Matthew, chapter 4 – verses 1,2. It says, “Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. After fasting forty days and forty nights, He was hungry.” Satan then tempted him with food. But he answered, ‘It is written; “Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God’” (Matthew 4:3-4).

This is why you need to pray and ask God for the power to resist temptation. Ask him to lead you in the path of righteousness. Ask for his help to walk in his obedience, because it is only through it that we can live and flourish and extend our days.
