The Lord’s eyes are everywhere, keeping watch on evil and good people.
Proverbs 15:3 CEB
Father thank You for protecting me. Thank You for watching over me, and helping to strengthen me so that I can endure the sneak and direct attacks of the enemy.
Thank You for the discernment to see clearly through other people’s lies, misstatements, and declarations. Thank You for the discernment to see that the person who may try to befriend me is and will never be a genuine friend, but only attempts to get close to me so that they can betray me. Thank You for the discernment to see who is truly a friend, so that I can build upon and nurture those relationships.
Father I know that You will never put more on me than I can bear. I know that You will never guide me anywhere that You can’t protect me. I know that You will never keep me in a situation that does not glorify You, and all that You stand for.
I pray for Your continued protection, the foresight to grasp ahold of gifts that You present, the strength to not buckle under pressure, and the courage to walk away from certain people and situations. I give You all the glory and I honor You today and every day. Amen.
There is nothing that you are going through that God can’t resolve. Ask Him for the tools and gifts to do your part.
