After you praise God, deal with your priorities, ask God for what you need, and talk about your personal relationship, then you ask God for protection. Lord, “Lead me not into temptation, but deliver me from evil.” Lord, protect me today. Being a Christian today is like walking through a minefield every day. You don’t know what you’re going to step on that might blow up in your face. You just need to ask God for His protection, to help you not to walk in the path where evil is.
