Overcoming Temptation

When by our wrong thoughts we fall into the pit of error, we should pray: "Father, leave us not here, but pull us out through the force of our reason and will. And when we are out, if it is Thy will to test us further, first make Thyself known to us -- that we may realize that Thou art more tempting than temptation." 

-- Paramahansa Yogananda, Man's Eternal Quest
