Specific Text: Jude
The short little book of Jude is not one that we turn to often, but understanding its cultural setting will help you apply it to your own context better:
Prayer For The Day (Jude 1:24-25): Dear Father in heaven, you alone are able to keep me from stumbling so that you will someday present me before your glorious presence without fault and with great joy. To you alone be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ, my Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore. Amen.
