“In the garden, Jesus encouraged the disciples to pray and not sleep. In Luke’s account, he twice told them to pray so they would not enter into temptation (Luke 22:40, 46 ESV). When one considers the prominent place prayer holds in Eph 6:18–20, 45 this admonition gains significance. Earlier, Jesus told the disciples in the Lord’s Prayer that they should pray to be delivered from the evil one. A vibrant prayer life is absolutely essential for overcoming the temptations and attacks of the evil one.”
