So Herodias bore a grudge against John and wanted to kill him. But without Herod’s approval she was powerless, for Herod respected John; and knowing that he was a good and holy man, he protected him. Herod was greatly disturbed whenever he talked with John, but even so, he liked to listen to him.
— Mark 6:19-20 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, this world is so complicated and full of evil people with evil intent. But I know that you can even use a bad person to protect a good one. I praise You for knowing what I need and always providing for my protection—even from unlikely sources. I yield to Your plan for my protection, and just simply ask with trusting faith for You to deliver me however You choose to do so. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
