A Prayer Prompted by Luke 4

Father in Heaven,

Thank you for all that we can learn from Jesus and the way he carried out his ministry.

Thank you that he showed us how to defeat the devil by only being filled with the Spirit and filled with your Word.  Please fill us with your Spirit this day.  Help us further to be students of the Scriptures.  We want to be able to use the Bible rightly whenever we face the many temptations that we do.  

Help us also to have discernment to know the difference between the truth, which comes from you, and the lies that our enemy so craftily tells us.

Teach us to pray about every need, not least the many sicknesses that we face in this life.

And finally, help us to seek you first, so that we might constantly grow in our faith, and help us to set our priorities in accordance with your will.

In Christ,

Amen.
