Prayer for 1 Timothy 4

Praying through 1 Timothy 4:1

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.

“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;”

Praying through 1 Timothy 4:2

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. I pray for protection over vulnerable Christians who may be deceived by the hypocritical lies of apostate teachers, and I pray that in Your grace, You would raise up men who will stand firm on God’s Word and speak the truth in love. In Jesus' name, AMEN.

“Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;”

Praying through 1 Timothy 4:4

Heavenly Father, thank You that You have graciously allowed us to have access to the Word of God and the truth it contains. Give me wisdom to stand on the foundation of truth and not to be influenced by those that deny the eating of particular foods or restrict certain God-ordained institutions, like marriage and the family unit for unbiblical reasons - knowing that all good and perfect things come from You. For this, I give You grateful thanks and praise. In Jesus' name, AMEN.

This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, thank You for the wisdom and instruction that we gain from the pastoral epistles to Timothy and Titus. May I look to Jesus, day by day, and stand firm in the faith, holding fast to the truth of the glorious gospel of grace. Help me not to be offended by the actions or attitude of others towards me, but rather, may my speech and conduct be honouring to You, and may I serve You in faith and purity, to my life's end. Help me to be a godly example to those with whom I have to do, for Your holy name's sak, and greater glory. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
