Prayer Principle 6A
Prayer Principle 6 embodies 2 phrases,
And do not lead us into temptation,
PS 19.13 6A. RESOLUTION – I acknowledge, O LORD, my proneness to yield to temptation, and to fail in trials that come to me, and through Your GRACE I resolve NOT to forsake You. [Song, Come Thou Fount: "Prone to wander"]
Keep back Your servant also from presumptuous sins; Let them not have dominion over me. Then I shall be blameless, And I shall be innocent of great transgression.
David's prayer. Prayer about Temptation is biblical. Prayer will help me resist. Though I may be a Son of God, I can still wander from the right way I should go. Though I do not loose my salvation, however, I can loose my testimony. (James 1.21)
Deu 4:9; Deu 23:9; Pr 4:23; Ac 15:29; 1Ti 5:22; Jam 1:27; 1Jo 5:21; Jude 1:21
OUTLINE TEXT -- To Develop fuller in the lessons which follow:
14a)Having girded your waist with truth,
JA 1.16,22; AC 20.32 1C. The BELT OF TRUTH - I am sure the Bible is reality, the truth.
The assurance that the Bible is reliable and an honest witness of "truth" is protective gear that holds armor in place.
James 1:16, 22
Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren.  But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.
14b)Having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
PS 11.7; 15.2; 106.3 2C. The BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS - I live intending to BE right always.
For the LORD is righteous, He loves righteousness; His countenance beholds the upright.
A Psalm of David. LORD, who may abide in Your tabernacle? Who may dwell in Your holy hill?  He who walks uprightly, And works righteousness, And speaks the truth in his heart;
Blessed are those who keep justice, And he who does righteousness at all times!
15)Having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
MT 4.19; AC 1.8 3C. The SHOES OF GOSPEL WITNESS - I eagerly prepare and tell others the 'good news' of peace that comes through Your salvation.
Then He said to them, "Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men."
But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth."
16) above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench the fiery darts of the wicked one.
PS 34.8; HE 11 4C. The SHIELD OF FAITH - I will so act today as to demonstrate I trust Your Word completely when Satan sows doubt in my heart.
Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.  For by it the elders obtained a good testimony.
Men exhibit faith by their actions. Good Examples: Abel, Noah, Abraham, Joseph, Moses, Samuel, David, Daniel. Poor Examples: Cain, Lot, Samson, Saul, Achan, Ahab, Jonah.
17a) And take the helmet of salvation
1JN 5.11-13 5C. The HELMET OF SALVATION - I have unwavering assurance that I am saved.
1 John 5:11-13
And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.  He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.  These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.
17b) And the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God;
PS 119.9-11; JO 1.8; Ps. 19.7-14, esp. 7,12-13
6C. The SWORD OF SCRIPTURE - I take the Bible and consistently memorize and meditate on passages that help me fight all evil.
How can a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your word.  With my whole heart I have sought You; Oh, let me not wander from Your commandments!  Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You!
This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.
Ps. 19.7a The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul;  Who can understand his errors? Cleanse me from secret faults.  Keep back Your servant also from presumptuous sins; Let them not have dominion over me. Then I shall be blameless, And I shall be innocent of great transgression.
