Make me aware of the ways the devil uses to get me off track from my desire to love and serve you. Help me to have the same strength you had when you were tempted in the desert after 40 days of fasting. You were weak, tired and hungry. I can relate to all of those conditions, yet you stood firm knowing your identity and declaring it. Increase my desire to spend time with you and reading the Holy Scriptures that testify about your faithfulness and love for me. Fill me with the strength of the same Spirit that rose your dead body to life so that I too can be victorious against the deceptive, accusatory and tempting attacks of the devil in my daily tasks. You are my Master in life and I choose to do life in, with and for the Glory of God.
