Watch and Pray

Scripture: Mathew 26:41 “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation.  The spirit is willing, but the body is weak.

Observation: It is so easy to fall into temptation because in this world were tempted all the time.  With television, newspaper, billboards, internet and people that surround us it is so easy to stray.  We are caught up in satisfying our flesh we loose track of why we’re here and that is to serve God.  So if we don’t watch out for temptation and stay close to God by prayer, temptation will take over.

Application: To stay in a constant mode of prayer so when temptation comes I can ask for God’s help to defeat it.  When I feel tempted to recite the words of Jesus “away from me Satan, as it is written worship the Lord your God only.”

Prayer: Lord keep me alert and be with me to fight temptation and to be focused on you.
