New International Version
12 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
As we remember to pray, the way the Lord taught us, we ask for your help, guidance and protection, as we go through our day today. Keep our spirit aware of any sin that may try to ensnare or entangle us. Deliver us from the hand of the enemy, so that our focus may be on you. Lead our steps away from any temptation that would take our eyes off of you. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
May the peace of the Lord be with you always. Go in His perfect peace while serving and praising in His name and for His glory.
