Pray lest you enter into temptation

Proverbs 24:10 (KJV) says, “If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy   strength is small.”

Fred was told that reading was the key to passing his exams. So, he read diligently but still failed. Being a child, he turned to his mother, exclaiming, "You lied, Mom! You said I'd pass if I read my books. I read them all, but I failed!" His mother, with a gentle smile, asked him how he read. Fred admitted he didn't understand much of it.

Many Christians have heard Jesus' words, "Pray lest you enter into temptation" (Mark 14:38), and they prayed. But when faced with temptation, they fell. Like Fred, they wonder why.

Here's the thing: you shouldn't stop praying until you get an answer from God, just like Fred shouldn't have stopped reading until he understood his books.

But many Christians pray haphazardly. They pray until they feel like stopping, instead of letting answers guide their prayer time.

God says, "I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the Lord, keep not silence, and give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth."

So, decide today: never stop praying until you're stronger than your adversities and empowered to resist temptation.
