Standing Our Ground

Dear God,

I am aware that in this world, there are a lot of temptations that are hard to see.  The devil fights against us and I see his subtlety in the ways my DS and DD are tempted by their friends, peers, and the influences of society in general, to do wrong.  I am not immune to it either, Father.

But I thank You for always providing a way out so we can be protected from Satan's lies.  I shared with the kids how You cover us from the top of our heads to the very soles of our feet.  All we have to do is make the decision to put on the armor You have provided.  When we are properly dressed in Your protective gear, we can always stand against evil and  temptation, no matter how deceptive it can be.

Therefore put on the full armor of God,
so that when the day of evil comes,
you may be able to stand your ground,
and after you have done everything, to stand.
Ephesians 6:13
