40 Days of Prayer
This devotional series is in conjunction with the current curriculum series all Life and Home Groups are currently going through.
7 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8 Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
The devil is certainly our chief enemy, but the key to resisting him effectively is to first submit to God. It is through God’s power—not ours—that we are able to send Satan packing. That’s why prayer is so important. Prayer is our drawing near to God so He can draw near to us. In doing so in an attitude of repentance and confession, our hearts are purified, our hands are cleansed, and our minds are united with God. Pray fervently so you don’t fall prey to Satan.
