Praying from Matthew 14:8. Themes: Violence, Power, Betrayal.
Dear God, please help me to resist the temptation to do wrong, even when I am being influenced by others. May I always choose to follow your will and not be swayed by the desires of those around me. Help me to be a person of integrity and to stand up for what is right, even when it is difficult. Amen.
