The sixth petition. “And lead us not into temptation.”
Say: “O dear Lord, Father and God, keep us fit and alert, eager and diligent in Your word and service, so that we do not become complacent, lazy, and slothful as though we had already achieved everything.
In that way the fearful devil cannot fall upon us, surprise us, and deprive us of Your precious word or stir up strife and factions among us and lead us into other sin and disgrace, both spiritually and physically.
Rather grant us wisdom and strength through Your spirit that we may valiantly resist him and gain the victory.
