Praying from Hebrews 12:4 relating to Perseverance, Sin, Resistance.

Dear Lord, I pray that I may have the strength and courage to resist sin, even to the point of shedding blood. Help me to stand firm in my faith and to never give in to temptation. May I always strive to do what is right in your eyes and to live a life that is pleasing to you. Thank you for your grace and mercy, and for the sacrifice of your Son, Jesus Christ, who gave his life for me. Amen.
