While the enemy of our souls spends his time preying throughout the world, the lovers of Jesus spend time praying for the world.
Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.
1 Peter 5:8-9, NIV
