Father God, help me to remember how Your Son responded when tempted by the devil when He was in the wilderness. He responded to Him with Your Word! (Matt. 4:1-11). Help me to hide Your Word in my heart (Ps. 119:11), so that I am ready to resist when the enemy taunts me with temptation.

Lord, if You ever give Satan permission to sift me as wheat, I earnestly pray to be faithful to You and to emerge from the difficult season with a fresh ability to strengthen my brothers and sisters in Christ (Luke 22:31).

My Father, please help me to be on my guard; stand firm in the faith; be a person of courage; be strong; and to do everything in love (1 Cor. 16:13).
