Father, warn me through your Holy Spirit. The enemy creeps about, disguising himself in smooth personalities behind masks of persuasion. Keep me on guard and send up the red flags when I am in the presence of such individuals. Help me look past the facade to see the corruption behind. I ask in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“Be not envious of evil men, nor desire to be with them, for their hearts devise violence, and their lips talk of trouble.” (Proverbs 24: 1-2 ESV)
