Keep Me From the Trap Set For Me – Psalm 31:4

Keep me free from the trap that is set for me, for You are my refuge.

Have you ever set a trap for, say, insects that you didn’t want in the house? Perhaps it was set for just a few ants in the kitchen, or maybe it was set for a larger and more unsuspecting animal of some sort. Regardless of what it is set for, there is always a lure … something that entices the animal to head right into the trap. Even though we cannot always see them, life is full of traps set up for us (human souls) also. They entice us to stray from the narrow path of God, encouraging us to sin in a way that ultimately leads us away from His protection and divine will for our lives. In todays psalm, the psalmist prays for God to keep him free from the daily trap(s) set for him knowing that God alone is His refuge. What a wise prayer! Let us also ask God to give us discernment today; to know what to avoid, who to believe, and which way to go.

Daily Prayer

Lord, we need Your help to discern the traps set for us today. We know that we cannot live in fear of what might happen so we are choosing to live in Your refuge — in faith and in prayer. We pray today also for the power of the resurrection in our lives, to defeat any unforeseen evil in our midst. It is in Your good and holy Name we pray, Amen.
