Keep us, our Father, keep us in your care. Keep us from the evil one. Keep us sanctified in truth, as Jesus prayed for us. Keep us grounded in your Word. Keep us within the circle of your will. Keep us focused on forever with you as we go about the normal rhythms of our days and nights. Keep us ensconced in your hedge of protection as we present your gospel. Keep us emboldened to speak truth to the nations. I ask in the precious name and powerful authority of Jesus, who prayed for those you gave him, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one.” (John 17:15)
