**Note: this prayer can be adapted for any and all sin. In the place of “sexual perversion”, name your chosen stronghold or sin.
“Lord, let the sexual perversion within my life break my heart and bring me to my knees. Confront it and give me the courage to deal with it. Don’t let me turn and look the other way, hoping it’ll go away on it’s own. Make me deal with it in the authority of Jesus my Master, so I may be forgiven and back on my feet. Don’t let a flip or callous arrogance pass it off as a small thing. May I no longer make myself at home among sinners.
Let those around me not act like everything is fine when I am promiscuous or crooked or flip with God, rude to friend, get drunk or am greedy. While those who do not know you I am not responsible for, I must stand in the knowledge of your truth and word, cleaning house where necessary.
