How to Fight the Temptation to Commit Adultery

If you are tempted to commit adultery, following these steps to resist the lure of cheating on your spouse:
1. Pray
Pray and ask Jesus to help you because the Bible tells us that We do not have a High Priest who is not able to sympathize with us in our weaknesses.

We have One who has been tempted in all ways that we are tempted and yet He did not sin.

Therefore, let us boldly come to the throne of grace so that we may find mercy and grace to help us in our time of need. (Hebrews 4:15-16)  

So begin praying in the middle of the tempting situation and ask Jesus to help you overcome it.

As you pray, use Scriptures since the Word of God is the Sword of the Spirit (Ephesians 6:17) that God has given us to fight with. 

Scriptures that you can use as spiritual warfare prayers to fight temptation include:
1. Father God, Your Word says, “Marriage is honorable and the marriage bed should not be defiled.” (Hebrews 13:4) Therefore I ask You in the name of Jesus to strengthen me so that I resist this temptation of having an extramarital affair.

2. Father God, this temptation that I am facing is not an unusual temptation because other people also face it. But, You are faithful and You will not allow me to be tempted beyond what I am able to bear. Therefore, I ask You in the name of Jesus to show me the way out of this tempting situation so that I can resist it. (Adapted 1 Corinthians 10:13)
