Prayer Power Over Evil and Over the Evil One – from Matthew 6:13

The Bible tells us that the devil is always prowling about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.  But we are instructed to stand firm in our faith and to resist him (1 Pet. 5:8-9).  One of the ways that we resist the devil (and all evil) is through prayer.  It is our best and most powerful weapon against him, along with the promises of God’s Word. 

Here is a passage that I know will be a blessing to you, from 2 Thessalonians 3:1-2: “Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the Word of the Lord may run swiftly and be glorified, just as it is with you, and that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men; for not all have faith. But the Lord is faithful, who will establish you and guard you from the evil one.”

What a marvelous promise!  And we can claim it every day in prayer.  Praise God for His faithful watch over us!
