Prayer for 1 John 4:3

“But every spirit who does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist; you have heard that he is coming, and he is already in the world now.”

Praying through 1 John 4:3

Heavenly Father, thank You for the Word of God and the truth it contains. Thank You that Jesus is my Lord and Saviour. Thank You that Jesus is the incarnate Word of God, Who came from God as our sin-substitute and kinsman-Redeemer. Thank You for the many warnings we are given about false teachings, that diminish the Person and Work of Christ Jesus. Help me to be diligent in my study of Scripture and give me discernment to identify and denounce every spirit of antichrist that seeks to influence my faith in Christ. Give me a teachable spirit I pray and guide me into all truth. Guard the hearts and minds of vulnerable believers who have opened their minds to any spirit of antichrist and help them to recognise the folly of their way and return to the Word of truth, in Jesus' name we pray, AMEN.
