But since he has no root, he lasts only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, he quickly falls away. (Mat 13:21 NIV)
Prayer: LORD, circumstances, failures, missed opportunities, or misunderstood directions may cause me to fall down or fall back–but do not ever let me fall away from You. Cause me to grow deep roots in You so that when difficult times come, I will survive and thrive on the solid ground of our relationship. Do whatever You need to do in my life to make it so. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
