Prayer for 2 Peter 2

Praying through 2 Peter 2:1

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word of truth and the warnings against false teachers and their destructive doctrines. Keep me under the shadow of Your wing and guide me into all truth in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.

Praying through 2 Peter 2:3

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. Keep me alert to any false teachings and give me discernment to identify and expose those that seek to exploit the flock of God. In Your grace I pray that many who have been indoctrinated with these satanic lies, would come to a knowledge of the truth. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.

“And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.”

Praying through 2 Peter 2:4

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;”

Praying through 2 Peter 2:5

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 I pray that You would remember mercy and pluck many from the jaws of everlasting separation while it is still 'today'. This I 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;”

Praying through 2 Peter 2:6

Heavenly Father, thank You for this passage of Scripture that clearly warns of the consequences of sin and the inevitable judgement that must fall on those who refuse Your gracious message of salvation, condemning 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 toward Noah, the preacher of righteousness, and toward 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 for my sins. In Jesus' 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;”

Praying through 2 Peter 2:7

Heavenly Father, thank You for my great salvation and thank You that my salvation does not depend on what I have done, but on what Christ has done on my account. Thank You for the example of Lot, who was credited with righteousness by grace, through faith, but who lived an ungodly life that will cause him to suffer loss in the eternal ages to come. I pray that my relationships with others and the choices I make throughout this earthly life, will honour Your holy name, and not cause me to stand naked before You or without saintly white robes of righteousness. Teach me the lessons You would have me learn, and may I walk in the path of righteousness for His name's sake. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.

“And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:”

Praying through 2 Peter 2:9

Heavenly Father, how I bless and thank You for Your precious Word. Thank You for the many truths I learn from its pages, and the reassurances I receive that both the righteous judgement of the wicked and gracious deliverance of the righteous, is the outcome of this world. 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. Thank You that even in those times when I fail through fear or lack of faith, You remain faithful and Your promises never fail. Praise You, Lord. In Jesus' name, AMEN.

“The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:”

Praying through 2 Peter 2:10

Heavenly Father, give me wisdom and discernment to recognise and reject those 'teachers' who indulge in fleshly desires, or present a watered-down gospel that deceives its hearers. Open the eyes of my understanding, that I may see wonderful truths in Your Word. Help me to be strong and very courageous in standing up for the truth of the gospel, and help me to be still before You and know that You are God, and there is none other. Thank You, for the promise of Your presence in the lives of all Your people. In Jesus’ name, I pray, AMEN.

“But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.”

Praying through 2 Peter 2:12

Heavenly Father, thank You for the many warnings of false teachers who cause such devastation in the Church. I pray that, in Your grace, false teachers would be exposed for their trickery and their deceptive ministries be brought to justice. Thank You that the true gospel is contained in the Scriptures. Help me to study the Scriptures so that I may be ready to give a clear and accurate answer for the hope I have in me. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.

“But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;”

Praying through 2 Peter 2:20

Heavenly Father, thank You for the many warnings 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. I 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. Help those who are being fooled, through false teaching and a lack of understanding, into corrupt practices and sinful unbelief. Open their eyes to the truth of the glorious gospel of grace. Thank You that by grace through faith I am saved and my soul is guarded by Christ. In Jesus' name, AMEN. 

“For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.”

Praying through 2 Peter 2:21

Heavenly Father, I 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. I 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. Thank You that it is not Your will that any should perish, but that all would come to a saving knowledge of Jesus. In Jesus' name, AMEN.

“For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.”

Praying through 2 Peter 2:22

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. I also pray for those who have become prodigals and have been tempted to return to the world. I ask that, in Your grace, You would rescue them and bring them back into true Christian fellowship. 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.”
