Heavenly Father, thank You for this serious and important warning. I recognise how quickly I can be distracted from the truth of Your Word, enticed away into worldly pursuits or rendered spiritually impotent by doctrines of demons. Keep me I pray, and those that I love, from the wiles of the enemy. Give us spiritual discernment, and a determination to stand fast in the faith, to Your praise and glory. This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, I realise how important it is to have a thorough and correct understanding of the Word of God, for without it I am vulnerable to apostate teachers and the wiles of the enemy, who delights to shipwreck the faith of believers and render their lives powerless and unfruitful. Help me to be a vigilant student of Scripture and give me discernment to detect any attacks of the enemy in my life or the lives of other believers. We pray for protection over vulnerable Christians, who may be deceived by the hypocritical lies of apostate teachers and pray that in Your grace You would raise up men who will stand firm on God’s Word and speak the truth in love – this we ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Father, we pray that as members of the body of Christ we may learn to be imitators of You and to walk in love, with one another.. just as the Lord Jesus Christ loved us and gave Himself as an offering and sweet-smelling sacrifice - holy and acceptable to God.
Thank You Father that in Christ we are children of the light. May we walk in the light of the Lord, Who is the Way, the Truth, the Light and the Life - and Lord we know that Your purpose for the Church is to transform each one into the likeness of the Lord Jesus – until He is all in all.
We pray that as member of His body we may walk in all goodness and righteousness and live a life that is honoring to You. Teach us we pray to do only those things that are pleasing in Your sight and we ask that every member of the body of Christ may be sanctified – set apart unto You and cleansed with the washing of the water by the word of God, and made holy in thought word and deed.
We pray that the Church may be purified by the Spirit of power, so that she may be without spot or wrinkle or any such thing – but holy and blameless before You in love – We ask this in Jesus name
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word and for the truth that it contains. Thank You that in the Scriptures I have all that I need for the clear teachings on salvation, justification, sanctification, propitiation and many other important Christian doctrines. I pray that I may yearn for Your Word of truth as a baby craves for milk so that in Christ I may grow in grace and mature in my Christian life and not be misled by false doctrines and unbiblical teachings - to Your honour and glory. This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father I lift us each of my grandchildren to You and thank You for each life that is so special in Your sight. Lord I pray that each one will come to know Christ as Saviour early in their lives and desire a close walk with You through their teens and twenties and into adulthood.
May they learn to love Your Word and to come to know the value of prayer in their lives so that they grow up into men and women that live godly in Christ Jesus,
Lord I pray that all of us that have a touch on these young lives will teach them day by day about the Lord Jesus and the wonderful truths in Your Word – both in word and by example - just as the mother and grandmother of Timothy taught him the truth of the Word of God. Guide each of my precious grandchildren into all truth and bring them into true saving faith I pray… for You have promised that children that are brought up in the way that they should go will not depart from it as they grow older..
Keep each one I pray under the shadow of Your protection and love and may they grow in grace and discernment and wisdom throughout their lives – and use each one I pray in Your service I pray, to Your praise and glory, in Jesus name I pray,
Thank You Father God that I have been made clean through the blood of my Saviour Jesus Christ. Thank You that my sins have been washed away forever, and I pray that as I live the Christian life I may be continuously cleansed through the washing of the Word of God – for Your Word is pure and wholesome – Your Word is light and life.. Sanctify me by Your Word of grace I pray.
Help me to look deeply into Your Word of truth, knowing that the more that I am washed and cleansed by the written Word of God, the more I will come to see the lovely face of the living Word of God- my beautiful Saviour - Jesus Christ my Lord
I pray that my heart and mind may be purified daily but the cleansing flood that comes from You and I pray that rivers of living water may flow from You through me to others – so that I may reflect the love of God in my life and point others to Christ. May the face of Jesus my Saviour be the only thing that others see in me – for I must decrease so that He may increase – I ask this in Jesus name
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word and the truths that it contains. I pray that I would read, mark, learn and inwardly digest its truth so that I may conduct myself in a manner that is honouring to You and faithful to my position in Christ. Give me discernment to know the truth and protect me from any teaching that has distorted the Word - this I pray in Jesus name, AMEN.
Thank You Father for the Scriptures and all that they contain for they are food for the weary soul, instructions for godly living and wisdom from above. I pray that I may become absorbed with Your Word that the beauty of Christ is formed in me, in Whose name I pray, AMEN
O God, our Father, help us to see ourselves as children who seek guidance; children who walk in the midst of many dangers.
Help us not to be afraid so long as we walk close to Thee. Thy ways, O God are higher than our ways and often we do not understand. Teach us, O God, that we do not have to understand but to trust and Thou wilt see us through every difficulty in life.
When Thou art near, I am not afraid, I want to “draw nigh to God” in the assurance that when I do, He will “draw nigh unto me,”
In Jesus’ name,
