God can deliver you from evil

Jesus taught his disciples to pray. One of the things Jesus encouraged his followers to ask was, "Deliver us from the evil one." (You can see the complete prayer in Matthew 6:9-13.)

You are in competition with a lot of people. But the Bible says your real enemy is not a person but a being who wants to harm you. Jesus says you can ask God to deliver you from this evil one.

God, thanks for your mercy for us. Help keep us safe from the evil one, and from all harm and danger. Thank you. Amen.
