121 Days of Prayer

The purposes of this prayer are: Protection, Justice and Salvation.

Loving God, the psalmist wrote a psalm in which he prayed for your protection from his enemies: “I call on my Lord in my distress, and he answers me. Save me, O Lord, from lying lips and from deceitful tongues. What will he do to you, and what more besides, O deceitful tongue? He will punish you with a warrior’s sharp arrows, with burning coals of the broom tree.” Psalm 120:1–4 (NIV). Lord, we know that lying violates the ninth commandment (“You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor,” Exodus 20:16, NIV), and that the devil “was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” John 8:44 (NIV). Help us, we pray, Father, to always be truthful, and to share the truth with love. Amen.
