Prayer based on Matthew 22:18. Themes: Deception, Hypocrisy, Testing

Dear Lord Jesus, please help me to perceive the wickedness around me and to not fall into the trap of hypocrisy. Give me the strength to resist testing others and to instead focus on loving and serving them. Help me to always follow your example of truth and righteousness. Amen.

Verse: But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said,“Why do you test me, you hypocrites?
Matthew 22:18

This is a Command. The command is for the hypocrites to stop testing Jesus.
