Text: And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren. (Luke 22:31-32)

Tweet: A saint cannot be sifted by Satan without Satan securing the permission of the Savior and the Savior praying for the saint. Also, any sifting Christ consents to is intended by Him to strengthen the faith of the saint so that he can strengthen the faith of others.
