Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word and the truths that it contains. As I study Scripture, I pray that You would give me wisdom to discern the purveyors of any false gospel. Keep me spiritually alert, so that I may quickly recognise anyone who advocates a different doctrine, that does not agree with the written Word of God. This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, I realise how easy it is to be led astray by false doctrine and ungodly teachings, when the Word of God is not the foundation upon that in which my faith is anchored. Keep me I pray from false teachings. Protect me from the unfruitful works of darkness, that delight in inconsequential disputes, and which lead to envy, strife, abusive language and evil suspicions. Keep me focused on Jesus, and founded on the Word of truth, so that I may live godly in Christ Jesus, in Whose name I pray, AMEN
Heavenly Father, thank You that I have passed from death to life. Thank You that I am no longer in the power of the evil one but have been brought out of the darkness of worldly values, into the glorious light of Your eternal family. May my life, from this day forward be one of godliness with contentment – for Your eternal praise and glory – this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for teaching me the important principles of life in this passing, transient world. May I take this truth to heart, never forget that I was born with nothing, and remember how transient this life is. Thank You for Your amazing plan of redemption, and that by grace I have been given an eternal inheritance that will not fade away. I praise You that in Christ I have all I need for life and godliness, and that I been clothed with His own righteousness. Keep me from being tempted by the glittering prizes of this fleeting world system, and when I am tempted by material possessions, help me to recognise them as the gaudy trinkets of a world that is passing away. Thank You for my salvation and my new-life-in-Christ. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, there are many things that can displace the Lord Jesus from His rightful position in my heart, and the love of money is one that I know can cause much distress and destruction, when it is not correctly bridled under the authority of Christ. Help me to use the money that I have wisely, and help me to always regard money and my possessions as my servant and not my master. Take my life, together with all that I own for Your greater glory, and let it be consecrated to You, from this day forward and for evermore, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Loving Father, I want to fight the good fight of faith, knowing that victory over the world, the flesh and the devil has already been won, by faith in Christ. May I face the challenges of my life in Your strength, and to Your glory, in Christ’s name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, how we praise and thank You for Your grace, Your goodness and Your unapproachable wisdom in sending the Lord Jesus Christ to be our God and Saviour. Thank You that He alone possess immortality and dwells in unapproachable light - and yet, in Your grace and mercy, You sent Him to become one of us - so that by His death and resurrection, our sins might be forgiven. Thank You, that by faith in Him, we might be clothed in His righteousness and made sons and daughters of the eternal God - to Whom be all honour and glory in the eternal dominion, AMEN.
Loving Father I know that I live in the world and can be influenced by the false schemes and lying strategies of this present evil age, which can cause me to take my eyes off You. Thank You for Your gracious provision and may my reliance rest on You completely, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
