The above verse is the prayer of the. Jesus did not ask the Heavenly Father to take the disciples out of the world, but asked Him to keep these disciples.
God’s words is faithful. If we want to triumph over Satan’s temptations and attacks in real life, we should pray and rely on God, then we can obtain His care and protection. It’s also mentioned in the Lord’s Prayer that “And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil” (Matthew 6:13). Therefore, on our path of believing in God, it’s so important to obtain God’s care and protection.
Share with you a passage of words, and hope you can find the way of practice from these words when being tempted and attacked by Satan. “After God created mankind and gave them spirits, He enjoined them that if they didn’t call out to God, then they would not be able to connect with His Spirit and thus the ‘satellite television’ from heaven would not be received on earth. When God is no longer in people’s spirits there is an empty seat left open for other things, and that’s how Satan seizes the opportunity to get in. When people contact God with their hearts, Satan immediately goes into a panic and rushes to escape. Through mankind’s cries God gives them what they need, but He does not ‘reside’ within them at first. He just constantly gives them aid because of their cries and people gain hardiness from that internal strength so that Satan dare not come here to ‘play’ at its will. This way, if people constantly connect with God’s Spirit, Satan dare not come to disrupt.”
