The power of temptation is real. The kingdom of Satan is always looking for new citizens. Abstinence to the words and deeds of Jesus leaves us open for the devil to work.

Am I attuned to the powerful reality of the Evil One? Do I see myself as vulnerable to temptation? When I resist Jesus, I am open to attack.

O God, strengthen the armor of love that protects me from evil. May I not fall prey to ignoring the words and deeds of Jesus.
