“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – 1 Peter 5:8-9

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Be calm and vigilant,

because your enemy the devil

is prowling round like a roaring lion,

looking for someone to eat.

Stand up to him, strong in faith.

.

– 1 Peter 5:8-9 (NIV)

REFLECTION…

.

We are urged

to always be sober and clear-headed

so as to be on guard against the evil one.

.

There is always need to be watchful

against the assaults of the devil

– the liar, the detractor –

who will pounce on us

if we lower our guard

especially when we are focusing on ourselves.

.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

"He (the devil) moves round each one of us,

like an enemy who has us surrounded

and is checking the walls

to see if there is some weak, unsecured part,

where he can get in."

.

– St. Cyprian

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Give me strength, O Lord, in my weakness

and sustain me in my sufferings.
