Holy Father Seraphim, Pray to God for us!

Glory to Jesus Christ!

 My Sprirtual Father warned me that with great lent aproaching fastit being a time of intesified prayer I should be prepared for spiritual attacks from the evil one. And so I was wondering how one might deal with them or overcome them.


Pray for me

Take what I post to your spiritual father. I would guess that the most subtle attack would be to undermine our resolve to love God and neighbor, to remain steadfast in prayer, fasting, & alms giving and neglect to take confession sometime within Holy Lent. He may also want us to see special signs in various occurrances in natural and man-made situations to delude  and frighten us when discernment and sobriety are of utmost importance.
