A prayer

I found this and tweaked it just a little. I want to add Book of Mormon references. I don't believe really in set prayers, but I do like written prayers.

Father in heaven, I am entering a spiritual battle today against an enemy who is waging war against my soul. 1 Peter 2:11 I must be self controlled and alert, because my enemy the devil is looking to devour me. 1 Peter 5:8 I will resist him today and he will flee from me. James 4:7 I know that I will be tempted to sin against Thee today. I am so thankful that Thou wilt not allow me to be tempted with anything that I cannot overcome. Thou hast promised to provide all the strength I need to say no to any and all temptations today. 1 Corinthians 10:13 Jesus I am comforted in knowing that Thou doest understand this war I am fighting. Thou doest understand what it is like to be tempted. Thou wast tempted in every way that I am, yet Thou wast without sin. Hebrews 4:15 I am eternally grateful that sin is no longer my master, and I am no longer a slave to sin. Romans 6:6 I have been set free from the power of sin and have become a slave to righteousness. Romans 6:18 By Thy Spirit and grace I will not allow sin to reign in my life today. Romans 6:11 Thy grace teaches me to say no to ungodliness and worldly lusts, and I will live a self controlled, upright, godly life today. Titus 2:11 Lord, I know it is Thy will for me to be sanctified 1 Thessalonians 4:3 I thank Thee that Thy divine power has given me everything I need for life and godliness 2 Peter 1:3. I praise Thee that Thou hast given me a hunger and a thirst for Thy righteousness and Thy kingdom.

I know that discouragements and setbacks may hit me today. Things may not go the way I planned or hoped. I am thankful that no matter what happens, Thou hast promised to cause everything to work together for my good, because I love Thee, and have been called according you your purpose. Romans 8:28

Lord today I need help to wage war on the pride in my life. I know that Thou doest oppose the proud but Thou givest Thy wonderful grace to the humble. James 4:6 Help me to think of the needs of others before my own today. Philippians 2:4 If I don’t receive good service, if someone is rude to me, help me to respond with love and kindness. Please remind me to pray for them. Mathew 5:44 In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen

"I really have found power in having open, honest communication in prayer rather than just going through the motions. How have I gone so long without this? Prayer can be so powerful."

"The excuse is given that it is hard to avoid, that it is right at our fingertips and there is no escape. Suppose a storm is raging and the winds howl and the snow swirls about you. You find yourself unable to stop it. But you can dress properly and seek shelter, and the storm will have no effect upon you. Likewise, even though the Internet is saturated with material, you do not have to watch it. You can retreat to the shelter of the gospel and its teaching of cleanliness and virtue and purity of life. "
