Image via WikipediaFather, just like Israel in the time after Joshua was prone to bowing to Baal, You know how prone we are to bow to the false gods of this world. Preserve us from false worship, dear Father in heaven! Teach us to treasure not the persuasive words of our culture but to hold fast to the wisdom of Christ crucified for our salvation. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.
