God can keep you safe from hidden danger

Jesus taught his disciples how to pray in Matthew 6:9-13. One of the things Jesus encouraged them to ask was, "Do not bring us to the time of trial." Other translations say, "Do not bring us to temptation." In either case Jesus encourages us to ask God to keep us from real and hidden dangers where we might make decisions that have harmful consequences.

God, thank you for rescuing us from all harm and danger. Help us to make great decisions that result in good outcomes. Thank you. Amen."
