This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1875 edition. Excerpt: to the last, our adversary, going about (to and fro in the earth, Job i. 7, ii. 2) seeking whom he may devour (1 S. Pet. v. 8); we have need therefore to resist him stedfast in the faith (1 S. Pet. v. 9), if we would have him flee from us (S. Jas. iv. 7), for we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places (Eph. vi. 12). Our prayer then is, not only that we may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil (Eph. vi. 11), but that our Lord would "deliver us from the evil one" (S. Matt. vi. 13), make us more than conquerors, so that neither principalities nor powers may be able to separate us from the love of God (Rom. viii. 37-39), and that the promise may at last be fulfilled to us, "The God of peace shall bruise (tread) Satan under your feet shortly" (Rom. xvi. 20). Bead Is. xiv. 12; S. Luke x. 18; S. Matt. iv. 1-11; S. John xiv. 30; Col. ii. 15; Rev. xii. 12. XV. That it may please Thee to (1) succour, (2) help, and (3) comfort all that are in danger, necessity, and tribulation. The three words, danger, necessity, and tribulation, include all sorts of temporal afflictions. Those that are future and feared are signified by the word danger; those that are present and felt are expressed by necessity, or such afflictions as we sustain from want of some good thing, and tribulation, or such as we suffer from by the pressure of some evil. Our prayer is that the good Lord would--1. Succour all that are in danger. 2. Help all that are in necessity. 3. Comfort all that are in tribulation. N.B. To succour (succurrere)--to run or hasten up to the aid of; to come to the rescue; to run in and catch more
