A Prayer Prompted by Matthew 24

Heavenly Father,

Jesus warned us that many will be deceived by false signs and false Christs prior to his actual coming.  Please protect us from every form of spiritual deception.

Help us not to fear as we continuously hear of wars and rumors of wars, political turmoil, famines, earthquakes, and increasing troubles of various kinds.  We understand that these things must be, but they do not mean that the end is here, or even that it is near enough for us to see it.

On the other hand, help us to always be watchful, because our Lord is returning for us at a time that we do not know and will not expect.

He might even come today, so help us to always be ready.

In Christ’s name,

Amen.
