Heavenly Father, thank that You that You are my God and my Saviour and that You sent the Lord Jesus into the world to die as my Kinsman-Redeemer Who gave His life to redeem the world so that by faith in Him I have been saved. Thank You for the work of the Holy Spirit, within my heart. I pray that increasingly I may become more like Jesus my God and my Saviour in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your grace, mercy and peace, which you have bestowed on all Your children who walk in humility of heart, gentleness of spirit and desire a knowledge of the truth. Thank You that I am Your child, through faith in Christ Jesus my Lord and I pray that my faith would be strengthened and perfected as I die to self and live for Christ alone. Thank You for the ministry of Paul and the other apostles of Christ and help me to stand fast in the evil day and grow in grace and in a knowledge of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, when I consider how seriously a Christian's spiritual growth can be impeded by false doctrine and how deeply entrenched many unscriptural teachings have become within churches today, I pray that in Your goodness and grace You would expose false teachers and their demonic doctrines, which have affected so many church members. Give discernment to all Your children and we ask that you would give elders and pastor-teachers the discernment to identify unscriptural dogma and root out and expose certain men and women, who are doing such tremendous damage to the body of Christ. Give me discernment I pray and help me to be vigilant and stand firm in the faith, for Your honour and glory - this I ask in Jesus' name and for Your greater glory, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, I increasingly see that dangers caused by false teachings in the early church are equally concerning in Christendom today. Thank You for Your word and the many warnings it gives, to avoid the evil and do all that is well-pleasing to the Lord. Help me to be discerning in my life and never to pay attention to the fanciful myths and unbiblical philosophies that are becoming so popular today. Help me keep the focus of my heart on JESUS. Keep me from falling into the trap of dismissing the destructive element in things like myths and mere speculation, which can become such a hindrance to spiritual growth and the spread of the gospel. Keep me low at the cross and humble before You and help me to translate biblical truth into practical application, for You greater glory, this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, how I praise and thank You that I am justified freely by Christ's finished work on the cross, and that salvation is a free gift to all who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank You that my salvation does not depend on my merit, or anything that I do. Give me discernment to identify teachers, who wittingly or unwittingly, use the Law unlawfully, by adding to Christ's finished work on the cross. How I praise and thank You that my salvation does not depend on work that I do but is dependent on the work that Christ did at Calvary, on my behalf - for which I praise and glorify Your holy name AMEN.
Heavenly Father, it is a sad state of affairs to realise that moral relativity has replaced the Word of truth in our modern culture. Forgive us Lord, for allowing the philosophies of fallen man to have so quickly infiltrated society in general and the church in particular. Forgive us for allowing so much humanistic reasoning and unbiblical trends to enter Christendom. Be merciful, we pray, and bring us back to the objective truth of Your Word. This we ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Glory to God in the highest for Your plan of salvation, and praise Your holy name that I have become Your child, simply because I trusted in the saving work of Christ on Calvary. Thank You, for laying out Your wonderful plan in such simple terms that even I can understand it. In His name, I fully accept this glorious, trustworthy truth. Enable me to be a worthy witness of Christ’s great redeeming sacrifice for the whole world, that whoever calls on the name of the Lord, will be saved. In Jesus’ name, AMEN.
Thank You loving heavenly Father for loving me enough to visit Your creation in the Person of the Lord Jesus Christ – for loving me enough to die for me on the cross so that I might live with You into eternity – You truly are my glorious King of the ages and are deserving of all my love and praise through time and into eternity – praise Your glorious name, forever AMEN
Loving Father, I do want to cling fast to my faith in Christ Jesus, and ask that You keep my conscience clear, so that I may honour You in all I say and do, to You be praise and glory, forever and ever, AMEN.
