Fasting and prayer can build your faith to help you in this battle.

This is a battle of the mind and heart the devil is like a “roaring lion and he wants to devour you.
Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 9 But resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your brethren who are in the world. 10 After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you.
The Bible has a lot to say about the need to guard your thoughts, about putting God’s will above your own will, and putting on the mind of Christ:

“Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus”
(2 Corinthians 10:3-5)
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, 4 for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. 5 We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ,
Submit therefore to God Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
