Temptation
is,

That which provokes
or draws one to sin.
Trial. Adversity. Discipline.

"When by human weakness you
are led into temptation,
resort to prayer
for relief."
Noah Webster's
1828

After this manner therefore pray ye:
Our Father which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.  Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom, and the power,
and the glory, for ever. 
Amen.
    

Matthew 6    
9-13
