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.

“If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;”
(1 Timothy 6:3)

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

“He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,”

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 fleeing world system. and when I am tempted, 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.

“For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”
