What are your weaknesses, your sins, your inclinations that always seem to get you in trouble? Write them down and pray through each one, asking God to be your strength in each of your weaknesses. Surrender, consciously, each of these areas of your life to God and ask Christ to live through you, replacing your weakness with his strength.
