Prayer based on Luke 6:26. Themes: Humility, Persecution, False prophets.
Dear God, please help me to remember that seeking the approval of others can lead me down the wrong path. May I not be swayed by flattery or the desire for popularity, but instead seek to follow your will and your truth. Help me to discern between true prophets and false prophets, and to always choose the path of righteousness. May my actions and words bring glory to you, and not just the praise of others. Amen.
Verse: Woe, when men speak well of you, for their fathers did the same thing to the false prophets.
This is a Command. The verse warns the reader to be cautious of receiving praise and admiration from others, as false prophets were also praised by their fathers.
