Read Luke 22:39-44

[Jesus prayed] “Father, if you are willing, please take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.” Luke 22:42 (NLT)

One of our most important prayers is that we would not give in to temptation. We have a long track record of giving in right and left, and without the Spirit’s power we will continue to do so. The positive side of not giving in to temptation is remaining surrendered to God and His will. By keeping our focus on God, we are less likely to be led astray by the sin around us.
