Matthew Henry’s “Method For Prayer”

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

Petition 3.12 | NIV

And that the temptations of Satan may not overcome me.

I pray that I may not fall into temptation; Matthew 26:41(NIV) or, however, that no temptation may seize me except what is common to man. And let the faithful God never let me be tempted beyond what I can bear, but when I am tempted, may he also provide a way out so that I can stand up under it. 1 Corinthians 10:13(NIV)

Put on me the full armor of God so that I can take my stand against the devil’s schemes; Ephesians 6:11(NIV) to stand my ground when the day of evil comes, and after I have done everything, to stand. May the belt of truth be buckled around my waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with my feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. Give me the shield of faith, with which I can 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 for me. Ephesians 6:13-17(NIV)

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