Overcoming Temptation: Prayer

Prayer Overpowers Temptation. Luke 22:39-46
We overcome temptation through prayer.
Firstly, it is the prayer of Christ that helps us overcome. Christ prayed for Peter. Christ continues to pray for us at the right hand of God.
Prayer depends on God’s power. The root of sin is self-reliance. Prayer is God-reliance
We must practice praying regularly
We must practice praying physically. The disciples slept because they did not take the posture of prayer. Prayer literally meant kneeling or falling prostate. 
We as a church we be practicing prayer. To overcome temptation is not just negative, not to sin. To overcome temptation is to defeat the sin and evil of the world.
