A Collect for the Eighth Day of Lent
“And he was in the wilderness forty days being tempted by Satan.”
“[Satan] left him until an opportune time.”
Faithful Lord, who was tempted as we are, yet without sin, let us not become unaware of the tempter’s ever seeking to find an opportune time in us, and grant in us the will to resist him as you did, who liveth and reigneth with the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen.
