My scripture for March 1, is "Devote yourself to prayer, being watchful and thankful." Colossians 4:2 The definition for "watchful" is to guard and protect. Our prayers are so important because they go to the very throne room of God for protection. We also must be vigilant and wary. That's just not my nature. I always try and look for the good in people, not ever imagining that their motives are anything but pure or real. So, as I go to God for protection, I pray that He will guard my heart and take care of people and situations that are not in His will. Thank goodness that is not my job.
