Prayer for 1 Timothy 1:4

“or to pay attention to myths and endless genealogies. These promote empty speculations rather than God's plan, which operates by faith.”

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.
