Sunday, (July 15) – Pray that God will help us to stay alert in a dark world that tempts the Church to compromise on the truth of God as revealed in His Word. Pray that God will give us wisdom and discernment to recognize the schemes of the enemy in our lives and to stand strong against his work. Pray that Christians will not be deluded into accepting false but fashionable religious beliefs, because they did not know God’s truth, or were willing to compromise the His truth they once knew. Pray that God’s people will aim to live lives worthy of their calling, and that He will help them be ever watchful and prayerful so as to avoid sin and deception. Pray that the Lord will rescue His people from lies of the world, the flesh and the devil and reorient their lives around the truth of His Word.
