ESV First Person Method for Prayer

Pray for Grace to Preserve you from Sin

Petition 3.25 | ESV

We must pray for grace to preserve us from sin and all appearances of it and approaches towards it.

I pray to God that I may not do wrong, 2 Corinthians 13:7(ESV) but may be blameless and innocent, as a child of God, without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation. Philippians 2:15(ESV)

Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things; and give me life in your ways. Psalm 119:37(ESV) Put false ways far from me and graciously teach me your law! Psalm 119:29(ESV)

Do not let my heart incline to any evil, to busy myself with wicked deeds in company with men who work iniquity, and let me not eat of their delicacies! Psalm 141:4(ESV)

O declare me innocent from hidden faults; keep back your servant also from presumptuous sins: Let them not have dominion over me, but let me be blameless and innocent of great transgression; Psalm 19:12-13(ESV) and grant that hereby  I may prove myself blameless before you, by keeping myself from my own guilt. Psalm 18:23(ESV)

Let your word be stored up in my heart, that I might not sin against you; Psalm 119:11(ESV) and your grace be at all times sufficient for me, 2 Corinthians 12:9(ESV) ready to me, and mighty in me; and never give me up to my own heart’s lust, to walk in my own counsel. Jeremiah 7:24(ESV)

Enable me to walk carefully, not as unwise but as wise, Ephesians 5:15(ESV) so carefully, that I may cut off occasion from those who desire occasion to blaspheme that honorable name by which I am called; James 2:7(ESV) and by doing good may I put to silence the ignorance of foolish people, 1 Peter 2:15(ESV) and may I adorn the doctrine of God our Savior in everything. Titus 2:10(ESV)

I must pray for the graces of contentment and patience, and a holy indifference to all the things of sense and time.

Lord, teach me in whatever circumstances I am, to be content; let me know how to get along with humble means and how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance, let me learn the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need. Philippians 4:11-12(NASB) And let godliness accompanied by contentment be a means of great gain to me, 1 Timothy 6:6(NASB) and a little with the fear of the LORD and quietness, be better than great treasure and turmoil with it. Proverbs 15:16(NASB)
