We are engaged in a spiritual warfare which rages all around us and also within. We need to be aware of this so we can take the necessary steps to prepare ourselves for the battle. The Devil is a subtle enemy who plans his attacks on us according to his knowledge of our weaknesses. What can we do to stand against him? We examine this passage in the gospel and consider what it should mean to us today to watch and pray so that we may not fall into temptation.
