1 Peter 5:8-14 NLT

8 Be careful! Watch out for attacks from the Devil, your great enemy. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for some victim to devour.
9 Take a firm stand against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your Christian brothers and sisters a all over the world are going through the same kind of suffering you are.
