January Prayer Focus - Nancy Landerholm
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Jesus wants us to talk to him about our temptations. We can tell him about our darkest thoughts and emotions and every destructive desire that would lead us into evil. He already knows what we are thinking and the battles that rage within our minds. We can tell Jesus about our resentful attitude, our adulterous thoughts, our negativity, our lust, our jealously, our “dirty” mind, our selfish desires, our hatred toward a neighbor, and on and on the list goes. Only Jesus can give victory and has the power to win the battle! (Some battles of the mind are so strong that we need to seek out someone to pray with us and we need to be accountable to that person).
