Protect us Oh Lord!
Thought for the Day
Jesus prayed for his followers to be protected from the evil one. This acknowledgment of the spiritual struggle reminds us that life is more than what we see and hear. There is a spiritual dimension that requires spiritual strength. Prayer provides a connection to the very power of
God. Resisting the evil one can’t be done on human strength alone. Jesus’ prayer acknowledges that God is the source of protection when the spiritual struggle gets real.
Where am I experiencing temptation right now?
Where do I need God’s protection?
How often am I praying for God’s protection?
Instead of asking God to take you out of every harmful situation, ask for his protection in the midst of it. Ask God for spiritual strength about a specific temptation.
