Guard your mind and heart from the corruption in the world around you

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for sending your Son to be our savior. Thank you Jesus for dying for us. Thank you God for raising Jesus from the dead. And thank you for the scriptures for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire. (2 Peter 2:20-22)

Yes, the book of Proverbs does say this:

11 As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly. (Proverbs 26:11)

Lord, I’m here as usual to begin another prayer for your daughter Lindsey. I’m here on her behalf Lord. And today I pray that you would protect Lindsey from getting entangled in the corruption of the world around her, especially since she is in the public eye and is seen as a role model for many. Lord, I ask that you guard her mind and her heart from all the defilements that the world sets before her eyes. I ask that you continue to place godly people all around her. I ask that you show Lindsey some of your plans for her. I ask that you bring clarity to her vision Lord. And we will give you the glory. The glory is all yours. Glory! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

New Testament (2 Peter 2:20-22 ESV):
20 For if, after they have escaped the defilements of the world through the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the last state has become worse for them than the first. 21 For it would have been better for them never to have known the way of righteousness than after knowing it to turn back from the holy commandment delivered to them.22 What the true proverb says has happened to them: “The dog returns to its own vomit, and the sow, after washing herself, returns to wallow in the mire.”

Old Testament (Proverbs 26:11 ESV):
11 Like a dog that returns to his vomit
    is a fool who repeats his folly.

KJV translation note

The King James Version is a beautiful translation of the original Hebrew and Greek, however I sometimes find Old English hard to understand fully. 1 or 2 other translations can help clarify what it is saying so I can understand it. More Info CLICK: References
