(Mathew 4:1-4) Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.

you can pray this prayer if you need the lord to help you overcome temptations
Dear Lord, You know the temptations that I am facing today. But your Word promises that I will not be tempted more than what I can handle I ask for your grace to stand up under the temptation whenever I encounter it. Your Word also tells me you will provide a way out of the temptation. Please, Lord, give me the wisdom to walk away when I am tempted, and the clarity to see the way out that you will provide. Thank you, God, that you are a faithful saviour. Amen
