Praying with Paul: 'Saved from an Evil World'

Saturday, August 28, 2021

2 Timothy 3:1-9

Dear Father, Savior,

Undergird me with your grace during the days of stress that are present in these last times.

Keep me from going in the direction that people of the world are going. Don't let me be a lover of self, a lover of money, proud and arrogant, abusive, disobedient to parents. Don't let me be ungrateful, unholy, inhuman, implacable, a slanderer, profligate, fierce, a hater of good, treacherous, reckless. Don't let me be swollen with conceit, a lover of pleasure rather than loving you, holding the form of religion but denying the power of it.

Help me to avoid people who do all these terrible things. Help me to witness to them about your call to change their attitudes.

In the name of Jesus. Amen.
