The repentant prayer of a sinner


Hi Good people,

I have been thinking and there are sometimes during the journey to recovery, our sinful nature leads us into temptation. I would like to share a prayer from the deepest part of my heart.

Redemption prayer

Oh God, why?

Why do I have to go through this again?

How many times will my eyes lead me to fall?

How come my eyes crave for a peep?

Why do I long to get one more touch?

She is someone else’s daughter, sister, mother,

Why do I objectify women, through weird a fetish?

Why am I overcome by evil?

Why Oh God, do I defile my body through my eyes?

Why is sin so sweet, but only for a moment?

I do not want to do this any more,

I surrender the struggle to you,

I repent of lust of the eyes,

I repent of lust of this damned flesh,

I repent of every hint of sexual immorality I have fallen to,

Wash me with the blood of Jesus,

Purity my heart, mind and body,

You are all I need Jesus,

You are my only true satisfaction,

My saviour, my deliver, my Lord.

Oh God, I pray that you teach me,

Teach me your ways,

Teach how to love you more,

Teach me how to hate sin,

Teach me how to hide the word in my heart,

I desire to give you my all,

I make a covenant with my eyes,

Not to look at any woman lustfully,

So please help me God,

The devil and all his ways were defeated on the cross,

Equip me to battle,

Equip me with God’s full armor (Eph 6)

In Jesus name I pray.

      Hey Castimonia,
      Thanks so much. I prayed this as a humble as my desire for sexual gratification sometimes overwhelms me. God is my strength and everything I have to fight. God bless you as you wage war. Keep on fighting! Eph 6
