II Timothy 3:1-5:
“But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God—having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them.“
(Pray this prayer with me.) Lord, help me to stay away from the influence of those who worship self, pleasure and the “good life”. Show me how to decrease the effect that the secular press and media is having on my heart, and strengthen me against it. I repent for taking on the standard of the world.
