Dear Heavenly Father,

You know the thing that continually plagues me and I struggle with.  This isn’t the first time that I have asked You for help with this.  I have come to You before to ask for your help.  Here I am again.  You know how miserable this continually makes me feel, and how it affects my relationships with You and others. 

Jesus, please help me.  I am desperate.  I submit to Your will for my life.  I do not rationalize this or make excuses for it.  I simply do not want to continue to be mastered by it.  I ask that You remove it from me and help me to stand firm and fight against it.

In Jesus’ Name,
