AGAINST TEMPTATION

Almighty and most merciful Father, I
most humbly beseech Thee, for Thy Son’s
sake, Jesus Christ our Lord, have mercy
upon me, and succor me in these terrible
assaults and temptations of the devil. De-
liver my soul from all his power and craft;
send me strength from above, that I may re-
tain my integrity, may resist the enemy, and
stand steadfast in the day of trial. Be Thou
my strong rock, and tower of defence; that,
being preserved through Thy grace and
assistance, I may continue Thy faithful sol-
dier and servant unto my life’s end. Nou-
rish all the seeds of grace that are sown in
my heart, and make them fruitful unto
every good word and work. Give me the in-
crease of faith, hope, charity, and all other
Christian graces: and, that I may obtain
that which Thou dost promise, make me
ever to love that which Thou dost command;
and this I beg through the merits, and for
the sake, of Thy dear Son Jesus Christ our
Lord. Amen.
