Cares of this world
Mark 4:18-19 (NKJV)
18 Now these are the ones sown among thorns; they are the ones who hear the word, 19 and the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things entering in choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.
Pray for the unsaved, that the cares of this life will not distract them from the prompting and leading of God, that they won’t continue to seek their own solutions to the problems, but will turn to God.
