Oh Lord, I pray that You will help me and other Christians to walk out our faith no matter what happens. The storms will come and cause many people to doubt their faith. However, I pray that this will never happen with me or the members of my family. I am speaking of myself, my wife, and my children. I know that many of my brothers and sisters, parents, and other extended family members have already gone astray, but there is hope for them still. All we need is Your light to shine brightly before us and for our eyes to see it. You are so good to me, God. I don’t deserve all the many blessings that You extend towards me and my family. We have a home to live in, a car to drive, food on the table, and beds to sleep on. You keep us going day to day. Surely, the enemy has been trying to attack me and others I love, especially during the time of COVID. He has won over many and many have died. Even with the vaccine, more people are dying and I pray that You will keep us safe. Temptation is strong, but doing Your will is much better. I will serve You no matter what happens in my life. I love You, Lord. Amen.
Genesis 37:3,4 (KJV)
3 Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours.
4 And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than all his brethren, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably unto him.
Jealousy and covetousness cause people to do some crazy things, even to the point of killing people because of anger.
