Surround yourself with your enemies, and you will always be watchful. Surround yourself by with your enemies and you will never stop praying. Know that the enemy is watching, and you will always be alert. Know that Satan is watching, so never stop praying.

8Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 9Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings. 10And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. 11To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.
