Send Up a Prayer
“Resist the devil, and he will flee from you” (James 4:7). Prayer is not only our first line of defense against temptation of any kind, but certainly should be our instant weapon against the unexpected and sudden temptation. There is never a circumstance in life when you cannot send up a prayer to your Heavenly Father, whether it be working in the factory, walking down a busy street, bending over a dying patient, or teaching a class. God always has an ever-ready ear and a willing heart to hear and answer a call for help.
