Dear God, I ask to be kept from becoming captive to the philosophies of men and to be alert to the empty deceit of this world system, the traditions of man and the false religiosity that seems to predominate in Christendom today.
Give me discernment to know what is good and to seek after that which is wholesome and godly. Help me to be aware of that which is counter to Your truth and likely to harm my spiritual walk with the Lord Jesus.
Keep me I pray, in the power of Your Spirit and guard my mind that I may be discerning to know the truth and to reject the evil. In Jesus' name I pray,
