Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

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

Petition 3.12 | NASB

And that the temptations of Satan may not overcome me.

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

Put upon me the full armor of God, so that I may be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil; Ephesians 6:11(NASB) to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. Let my loins be girded with truth, put on me the breastplate of righteousness, and let my feet be shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace. Give me the shield of faith with which I may extinguish all the flaming arrows 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(NASB)

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