Johnny gets out of bed. Should he or shouldn't he say his prayers? (Draw Fig. 1.) A big fat devil is hovering near his bed and watching to see if he forgets. The filthy devil wants him to hate God. "You're too tired to say your prayers this morning," he says to Johnny. "Let them go."
No. Johnny hates the devil and loves God. He'll please God rather than the devil, and so he kneels down and says his prayers. The devil is enraged and rushes out of the room. We should never do what the devil wishes us to do.
"Jesus, help me to be good today and keep me from all sin."
"Jesus, I thank you for all you did for me today. Forgive me for all my sins."
