Praying from Matthew 16:3. Themes: Judgment, Hypocrisy, Discernment.
Dear Lord, help us to not be like the hypocrites who can discern the appearance of the sky but cannot discern the signs of the times. Give us the wisdom and discernment to understand the signs of the times and to act accordingly. May we be aware of the spiritual climate around us and be prepared to face any challenges that come our way. Help us to trust in you and to seek your guidance in all things. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
Verse: In the morning, ‘ It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ Hypocrites! You know how to discern the appearance of the sky, but you can’t discern the signs of the times!
This is a Command. The verse commands the reader to discern the signs of the times.
