Scripture: Matthew 6: 13
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.
Observation: Please keep us away from evil and evil tendencies. Keep us from going down paths of destruction and get us away from them when we do wander.
Application: This comes also from Chapter 26 of The Power of a Praying Wife where we are praying for our husband’s deliverance.
We are all gripped by some evil and only the Lord can truly free us from that grip. And he can keep us even from being tempted if we just ask (and listen).
Prayer: Lord, please guide my husband in making good choices all day long. Please keep him from even getting near temptation. Stop him should he get near that path, Lord. Do not let evil lurk near him and when it does get too close, please guide him in making good decisions and eradicating that evil from his life by leaning on you, our one true deliverer.
Please, Lord, help him to conquer anything that comes from Satan and instead live the life you have set for him.
Thank you, Lord, for your love and deliverance. Thank you for being there when I cry out… for me and for others.
