Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

Pray for God’s Grace to Fortify you Against Satan’s Temptations

Petition 3.12 | ESV

And that the temptations of Satan may not overcome us.

I pray that I may not enter into temptation; Matthew 26:41(ESV) or, however, that no temptation may overtake me that is not common to man. And may the faithful God never let me be tempted beyond my ability, but with the temptation provide the way of escape for me. 1 Corinthians 10:13(ESV)

Put upon me the whole armor of God, that I may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil; Ephesians 6:11(ESV) to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Fasten on me the belt of truth, put on me the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for my feet, put on me the readiness given by the gospel of peace. Give me the shield of faith, with which I may extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one, and the helmet of salvation; and let the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, be always ready to me. Ephesians 6:13-17(ESV)

Enable me to resist the devil, so that he may flee from me; James 4:7(ESV) to resist him firm in the faith. 1 Peter 5:9(ESV) And may you, the God of peace, tread Satan under your people’s feet, and may you do it soon. Romans 16:20(ESV)
