Prayer based on Matthew 22:13. Themes: Judgment, Punishment, Hell.
Dear Lord, please help me to always be faithful and obedient to you. May I never be like the servant who was unfaithful and disobedient to his master. Please give me the strength to resist temptation and to always do what is right in your eyes. Help me to use the talents and gifts you have given me for your glory and to serve others. And if I ever stray from your path, please guide me back to you and forgive me. I pray that I will never experience the weeping and grinding of teeth in the outer darkness, but instead, be welcomed into your eternal kingdom. Amen.
Verse: Then the king said to the servants, ‘ Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and throw him into the outer darkness. That is where the weeping and grinding of teeth will be.’
This is a Command. The king is commanding his servants to bind the person, take them away, and throw them into outer darkness where there will be weeping and grinding of teeth.
