Romans 6:12 –Do not let sin control your puny body any longer; do not give in to its sinful desires. Do not let any part of your bodies become tools of wickedness, to be used for sinning, but give yourselves completely to God (LB).
Help us Lord
Lord, we pray, please be our guide.
Thanks, this day you’re by our side.
Help us control cravings. Help us see
That gluttonous sin is never free.
Lord, help us see the way we act
Causes us then, with guilt to react.
Help us to learn how to say no
And then to use it, wherever we go.
Whenever we think we can stand apart,
Maintaining holiness of the heart,
Forgive us, Lord, and hear our prayer.
And thank you, Lord, for being there!
Here is a simple exercise to practice. Place tongue behind teeth and say nnnnnnn. Now round your lips and say the letter o. Now, let’s put them together. N-n-n-o! Again? N-n-n-o! Let’s hear it loud and clear! NO! NO! NO! That’s the correct answer to use when sin calls.
Prayer: Lord, when we are tempted, bring this one word to our hearts, minds, mouths and feet! NO! In Jesus’ name. Amen
