Also pray that we may be rescued from perverse and evil people, for not all are trustworthy.
We are all vulnerable to those who gain our trust then secretly betray it and act in their own self-interest to our harm. So what is the solution? Paul says the answer is to pray and seek divine assistance. Help comes in the form of discernment to see the deception early or rescue once caught in the painful bear trap of betrayal. Without God’s help we are likely to be victimized more often and life considerably more painful. I know this to be true from my own personal experience.
