Keep me from Worry!

O, LORD, my God, help me resist the temptation to worry—please don’t let me be weighed down with worldliness which weighs me down and blocks awareness of Your Presence. Please keep me alert to the battle that is continually being waged against my mind.

Help me stay alert and maintain a sober mind. Guard my heart and mind and body safely from my enemy the devil who prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Please don’t let him get me, for Jesus’ sake. Amen

—1 Peter 5:8 NIV
