Kept: 1CH 4:10; JOH 17:15

I pray  .  .  .  that Thou shouldest keep them from the evil.
The first verse is a prayer of Jabez whose name means “sorrowful.” The second is a prayer of the Lord Jesus to His Father on behalf of all who believe in Him. When Jesus taught His disciples to pray, part of that prayer was, “Deliver us from evil.” In our day it is VERY important to ask the Lord to keep us.
