"Stay awake and pray that you may not enter into temptation."
"Jesus, Who feared nothing, experieinced fear and asked to be freed from death - although He knew it was impossible.
How much more must we perservere in prayer before temptation assails us - so that we may be freed when the test has come!"
- St. Ephrem
Heavenly Father, help me to work out my salvation in fear and trembling. Let me pray daily that I may withstand temptation and carry out Your will in all things.
- Every Day is a Gift
