“Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour” (1 Pet. 5:8).
Dear Lord, I am so aware of how Satan picks at me and tries to trip me all the time.
I know there are spiritual dangers around me.
Please help me to remain alert and to be under the Holy Spirit’s control at all times.
I want to draw near to You, so the devil will flee.
Please protect my family and me from harm and evil.
Thank You for Your love, concern, and protection.
In Jesus’ name, amen.
I felt impressed to share this prayer with you all. My peers at college are busy watching the new film “Evil Dead” and I decided that I was going to check my emails so that I didn’t have to watch it.
As I was reading I came across an email that I hadn’t yet read. The prayer seemed so perfect for me right now as I have been praying during this movie.
I can hear everything that is going on in the film and can see how intrigued my peers are, but I can see the Lord and would rather commune with Him than stray into the devils territory.
Praise be to God, who loves me and will always protect me even when it seems that I am in a difficult situation that may test my relationship with Him.
