Disarming the Devil

Q. What do these three passages have in common?

1.) So, you men could not keep watch with me for one hour? Watch and pray that you many not enter into temptation. (Matthew 26:40)

2.) With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the spirit with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints. (Ephesians 6:18)

3.) And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. (Matthew 6:13)

A. In their contexts, they are each about avoiding temptation/standing firm against the devil’s schemes.


This day might hold your greatest hour of temptation, or that of your brother/sister.
