But stay awake at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are going to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.—Luke 21:36
Alertness is an attribute that's an asset to all men. But this is not any kind of readiness; it's spiritual alertness—so stay awake. Don't go to sleep, take a nap, or doze off when the signs of the times demand vigilance. But rather pray! Pray for strength to escape the deception, hatred, violence, positioning, and politicking so that when the end comes, you will stand dignified as a man declared righteous by the Son of Man.
DO THIS: Wake up.
PRAY THIS: God, while I want just to forget this whole thing, ready my heart, mind, and soul today.
