My Father in heaven, keep me beneath Your protective gaze when the enemy swirls around me with deceitful trickery. Grant me strength through Your Holy Spirit to resist the temptations that subtly attack the weak points in my soul. Jesus, make me aware of Your nearness. Show me Your glory, Lord. Reveal to me the hope that rests my heart in the midst of battle. May I reach for Your hand when I have fallen. For only You can lift me up and put me back on my feet. Let me give myself to prayer in the midst of accusations because You meet me in the quiet place. You still the angry voices that clamor for my attention. You vanquish the insecurities that become a pitfall for my heart. Only Your love will suffice. Only Your guidance is right. Let me ever praise You in the few days I have been given. Upon the rock of Your grace, stand me up, Lord God. Under the mighty Word of Psalm 109:1-3 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I pray.
Be not silent, O God of my praise!
For wicked and deceitful mouths are opened against me,
speaking against me with lying tongues.
They encircle me with words of hate,
and attack me without cause.
Psalm 109:1-3, ESV
