Scripture for the Second Tuesday in Advent

Ephesians 4:27

Do not give the devil a foothold.

Almighty and everlasting God, we don’t want the devil to get a foothold in our lives or in our community. But sometimes we let the world intrude on our worship and our service. We don’t participate in worship and study. Our prayers and devotions are hasty. We don’t like to admit we’re giving the devil a foothold, but we are. Empower us by the Holy Spirit to stand strong against the enemy of our souls. Save us from giving the devil a foothold. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
