Heavenly Father, thank You for Jesus, Who died on the cross, so that by faith in Him we might be saved from the wrath of God, which is demanded for humanities sinfulness.

Heavenly Father, I praise and thank You for purposing that You would redeem mankind from their sin. Thank You for sending Jesus Christ as the Son of Man, to pay the price for my transgressions. Thank You that my sin has been judged at the cross, and that I have been declared righteous in Your sight, by faith. Father, the terrible judgement of the angels, that left their first estate, and joined in a heavenly rebellion against Your holy name, is a sombre reminder of the destructive nature of sin. Thank You, that by Your grace, You purposed to redeem mankind, and to adopt all who trust in Your only begotten Son, into Your own immortal family. Keep me from minimising the destructive element of sin and its shocking, and eternal consequences, and use me to share the truth of the gospel of grace, with men and women, who are dead in their sins and bound for the lake of fire - unless they believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for their salvation and forgiveness of their sin - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.

“For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;”
(2 Peter 2:4)
Source: Verse of the day for 2 Peter 2:4

Heavenly Father, thank You for the warning of the dangers of a rebellious spirit that seeks to elevate fallen man rather than our holy and merciful God. Thank You for the witness of Noah in his generation and that by Your goodness and grace we have been redeemed from sin and death by the blood of Christ, which was shed to pay the price for our sin. Keep me from any form of arrogant thinking and develop in me a humility of spirit that glories in the cross of Christ my Saviour. And Lord, in Your wrath we pray that You would remember mercy and pluck many from the jaws of everlasting separation while it is still 'today'  - this we ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.

“And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;”

Source: Verse of the day for 2 Peter 2:5

Heavenly Father, thank You for passages that clearly warn of the consequences of sin and the inevitable judgement that must fall on those who refuse Your gracious message of salvation and condemn themselves to death and hell. I pray for the many lost souls who have not trusted Christ for salvation and are bound for eternal death, if they do not turn from their wickedness and be saved. Thank You for Your amazing grace towards Noah, the preacher of righteousness and Lot, who was grieved by the wickedness of his generation - and thank You for Your grace toward me - in that while I was still a sinner Christ died for me and gave His life as the ransom price for my sin, and the sin of the entire world. Praise Your Holy name, AMEN.

“And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;”

Heavenly Father, how we bless and thank You for Your precious Word. Thank You for the many truths we learn from its pages and the reassurances we receive that both the righteous judgement of the wicked and gracious deliverance of the righteous is the outcome. Thank You that You know how to rescue Your people from both the temptations of the evil one and the inevitable trials that stalk the pathway of every man and woman. Give me discernment, I pray, to identify false teachers and their twisted doctrines and to stand fast on the word of truth, for Your name's sake. Thank You that even in those times when I fail, through fear, or lack of faith - that YOU remain faithful to the promises made to those who have trusted in Christ for the remission of sins and life everlasting. Help me to live and work, day by day, for Your praise and glory. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, thank You for the many warnings of false teachers who cause such devastation in the Church. Thank You that the true gospel is contained in the Scriptures and I pray that in Your grace I would become fully equipped to identify false teachings and other deceptions in the Church. Help me to be ready to give a clear and accurate answer for the hope I have in me and protect the hearts and minds of all Your people from worldly deception. We pray that false teachers would be exposed for their trickery and their deceptive ministries be brought to justice - this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, thank You for the many warnings we are given in Your word about the dangers of false teachers and the devastation they can cause in the lives of those who become entangled with them. We pray for those who are attracted to a counterfeit gospel or embroiled in the false message of apostate teachers, without coming to a knowledge of the truth. Thank You that by grace through faith I am saved and my soul is guarded by Christ - through faith. Help those who are being fooled through false teaching into corrupt practices and sinful unbelief, through a lack of understanding... and open their eyes to the truth of the glorious gospel of grace - this we ask in Jesus name, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, we grieve to realise how many people must have been affected by being taught a fake gospel with a counterfeit Christ, by the many false teachers that have infiltrated churches over the centuries. We pray that in Your grace You would use godly men and women to pluck some brands from the fire and teach the truth to those that are dead in their sins and without hope in the world. We ask this is Jesus' name, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, how good it is to receive the warnings about false teachers and the destruction they can do to those who are not properly schooled in the scriptures or are new to the faith. Give me a discerning heart and the desire to learn Your word and apply its truth in my life. Protect young believers and those that are enquiring about the Lord Jesus, from the destructive elements of apostates who tickle the ears of those that are unschooled in scripture. We also pray for those who have become prodigals and tempted to return to the world.. and ask that in Your grace You would rescue them and bring them back into true Christian fellowship. This we ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.

“But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.”
