Pray for the sleep of the just
« on: September 25, 2014, 04:37:11 AM »
Pray that tonight I may have the sleep of the just. I am feeling particularly tempted to a sin of the flesh and I want to not commit it. I am trying to keep busy in bed to avoid becoming idle until I really am ready to go to sleep but the devil most tempts when we are idle, and if we avoid being idle during the day, he tries to do it when we have to be idle! Lord, have mercy!

Lord have mercy!
Do not be cast down over the struggle - the Lord loves a brave warrior. The Lord loves the soul that is valiant.

Lord, have mercy.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.
