A Collect to Resist Senseless Sin

Great teacher, who was tempted as we are yet did not give in to sin, keep us from being overwhelmed by our base impulses and satisfying our pleasures senselessly, but give us wisdom and temperance to enjoy the life you have given us without destroying ourselves in it, through you who reign from heaven with the Father and Holy Spirit in honor and glory forever. Amen. ‘Let us live honorably as in the day, not in reveling and drunkenness, not in debauchery and licentiousness, not in quarreling and jealousy.’ – Romans 13:13
