"Why are you sleeping?" he asked them. "Get up and pray so that you will not fall into temptation."
Have you been struggling with temptation? Jesus gives us the way out of its grasp. The way of escape is through prayer. When temptation comes and it will certainly. Just turn from it and begin to pray immediately. Also prayer is a protection from temptation as Jesus taught us to pray using these words “lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil” (Matt6:13) by doing this we are saying Lord lead me, I am willing to follow your instructions. He will guide us onto paths of holiness and protect us from evil.
