Almighty and Holy God, you are the God of time. The times are evil, Father, yet, you are in control. Your Word from centuries ago is relevant today in more ways than I can count. I’m just going to leave them here in my prayer, lifting up your desire for us to live in victory, discernment and righteousness. Be glorified in our actions and decisions, words and thoughts. I thank you for your wisdom, in the name and authority of Jesus, who chose Paul, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit, addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart, giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ.” (Ephesians 5: 15-21 ESV)
