End Times, July 13
But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come:
For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good,
traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,
having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!
2 Timothy 3:1-5, www.solascriptura.com
Father, our traditional Judeo-Christian values are being attacked from within and from without. It seems the core values of the world are as the people described above by Paul in his letter to his young student, Timothy.
It is no surprise to You, Father that things are as they are. You have told us to expect to be inundated with the portrayal of violence, lust, greed and every kind of sinful act, increasingly. Now “portrayal” is setting the stage for imitation and envy, taking Your children further from You.
You have told us that these are signs of the end times, the last days before Jesus returns. Father, today we pray that You will strengthen our resolve to withdraw from that which glorifies evil. Prepare our hearts to be in Your presence, joyfully. Protect our children and grandchildren, we pray, from evil; in Jesus’ name, amen.
