“The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.” ~ Proverbs 28:1 (KJV)
We first and foremost come to You giving You all the praise, glory, and honor as the one and only true and living God. We thank You for salvation — sending Your Son to die on the cross for our sins so that we can have eternal life with You in heaven. Please forgive us of our sins, and we thank You in advance for helping us to overcome our weaknesses and shortcomings.
Lord, we come with a special prayer today that You will help us to be the righteous who are as bold as lions and not the wicked who flee from nothing. Thank You for helping us to walk uprightly in Your Word so that we need not fear anyone. Lord we thank You that when we stand firmly for You and beside You, that You do the same for us. No one can get to us without first going through You. Finally, Lord, thank You for sharing with us in Your Word how we may discern the hearts of the wicked from the hearts of the righteous. May our lives be a reflection of You, our Heavenly Father, and a living testimony to those who are lost.
It is in the magnificent name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, that we pray. Amen.
