When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death. Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers and sisters. Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created.
James 1:13‭-‬18 NIV


Father of the Heavenly Lights, creation came to be by the breath of Your mouth and besides You stood Your Son. When tempted, give me the strength to say no and move forward, never to return again. Every good gift comes from You. Give me courage, strength, and wisdom. May humility come alongside, in Jesus mighty Name, amen
