PRAYER
Discussed by Sara Tracey
with The What's UP Radio Program



Colossians 2:8 “See to it that no one captivate you with an empty, seductive philosophy according to human tradition, according to the elemental powers of the world and not according to Christ.”

Heavenly Father:

There are so many worldly ideas and thoughts that are thrown into our face on a daily basis.

When we feel all alone in our beliefs, help us to remember the Truth of your Word.

Help us to stay strong in our faith and never be silent.

Father God, we pray for our leaders today. May those who have strayed turn back to you. May those who reject you accept the Truth and welcome you into their lives. May those who follow the path you have designed for them stay vigilant and never compromise their faith.

We pray all this in the name of your son and our Saviour, Jesus Christ.

Amen
