Self Control

        We need increased self-control. But, praying for self-control over something that is a stronghold is rarely effective. But, praying over something that leads to the habit can be very effective. Let’s say you have a huge problem with drinking, but an occasional problem where lust gets out of control. You have noticed… When lust goes wild, you slip back into drinking twice as quickly. If lust is not as big of a stronghold, prayers for self-control with lust may work well.

        #2 Praying for self-control over TV shows. Once we watch the wrong scenes in a TV show, running from it becomes way harder. Consider praying:

        “Father, help me to increase self-control with picking clean shows.”

        If risky shows are a problem for you, today, commit to prayer: How many times per day will you commit to praying the above prayer? As you start watching TV consider quoting the below verse several times:

        Psalm 101:3 I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes;”

        Finally, pick one or two things that you think lead to drinking/drugs. Then change the above prayer to one that reflects those things. Then pray it fervently until you start to see some self-control.
