And the ones on the rock are those who, when they hear the word, receive it with joy. But these have no root; they believe for a while, and in time of testing fall away. – Luke 8:13 ESV
LORD, I pray in my spirit — and in as much truth and love as I can muster, against any deceitfulness of heart and flesh and desire, resisting all distraction and confusion brought forth by the enemy — so that I will search myself deeply by the light of this text. Amen.
