O Powerful Jesus, at the beginning of Saint John Climacus’ ministry, he was severely tempted by the devil. By placing all of his trust in You and spending much time in prayer, he resisted the sins and grew in holiness. When people asked for his help in overcoming the difficult traps of sin, they prayed together, and peace replaced the temptations. I ask Saint John to pray with me against the pull of sinfulness in my life. Jesus, through the Cross you overcame the devil and freed me from sin. Help me to live in that freedom today. Remind me to pray whenever I’m in danger of falling back into the slavery of sin. Saint John Climacus, pray for me. Amen.
