Following the theme of Lent, today’s prayer asks God to help us deal with the temptations to which we are all, inevitably, subject.
No temptation has over taken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it (1 Corinthians 10:13; NIV).
You forgive us every time we repent,
But our weak and fallen nature
Soon leads us to sin again.
Please don’t let us be tempted
Beyond what we can bear.
Show us the way out, every time,
And help us to endure our trials
For the sake of your dear Son,
Who died for us.
