Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word.. and the wisdom and warnings it contains. I pray that in these perilous time I will take heed to the instructions of Paul and look to Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith - and seek.. in the power of the Holy Spirit, to live in these increasingly perilous times as Paul instructed - to Your praise and glory, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the many warnings that Scripture gives of the need to be constant in our faith, and to persevere under trials. Keep me, and those I love, from the evil influence of those that seek to undermine the faith of Your children and shipwreck those that have been saved by grace through faith in Christ. I pray that I may eschew evil and discern those who seek to turn my mind from the truth to fables - and give me a discerning spirit and desire to study to show myself approved unto God, for my benefit and for Your greater glory - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN
Heavenly Father, thank You for the Word of God and the wonderful truths that it contains. Keep me from being swayed by false doctrines, and give me discernment to recognise and reject teachers and teachings, which water-down the good news of the gospel of grace, and pervert the name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Give me a teachable spirit, and the courage and grace to stand fast in the truth, and to share the good news with those, with whom I come in contact - for Your praise and glory - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, keep Your people alert to the deceit and deception that is permeating the Church and from evil men whose objective is to oppose the truth and cause the downfall of Christians and Christianity. Give us discernment to identify deception and the courage to challenge base men like Jannes and Jambres, who used their trickery to oppose Moses, and about whom Paul warned. I pray that I may be willing and able to stand up for the truth and counter every argument against the Word of truth and enable me to give an answer for the hope that I have in me – for Your greater praise and glory this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, I see throughout history the mark of the enemy is to subvert the truth of Your word through deceit and manipulate the minds of people into believing a lie. Help all Your children to hold fast to the truth of the gospel of grace, so that Christ is lifted up. Give us discernment we pray, to identify, expose and reject the false teachings of ungodly men and the foolish philosophers of the world, which are percolating into the Christian communities; flooding into the corridors of governmental power and which seek to shipwreck the faith of believers while holding unbelieving minds in satanic darkness. Expose the works of evil we pray, in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the privilege of being one with Christ, positioned in Him, clothed in His righteousness and trusted to suffer for His name’s sake.. against the attacks of the evil enemy of our soul. Thank You that Your grace is sufficient and that nothing can ever separate us from the love of God – which is in Christ Jesus our Lord, in Whose name we pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the amazing encouragement that we have received in this final letter of Paul to his spiritual son, Timothy. I pray that I may continue to grow in grace and be faithful in the work that You have called me to do. Keep me faithful in ministry, faithful in conduct, faithful in sharing the foundational truth of the Word of God with those I come in contact, and I pray that I may be faithful in my attitude and actions towards my brothers and sisters, and honour You in all I say and do. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for those that introduced me to the truth of the glorious gospel of grace. I pray for the children and young people of today who are the primary target of unprincipled man in this ungodly society, which is seeking to destroy the foundational truth of the Word of God. We pray that You would protect young minds and bring many to a deeper knowledge and understanding of the Word of Truth - and thank You that Your Word is set in heaven and can never be destroyed - in Jesus name we pray, AMEN.
Thank You, loving Father, for the God-breathed Scriptures. Teach me, convict me, correct me and train me through the living, powerful inspired Word of truth, that I may be equipped to carry out the work that You have ordained for me to do. Keep me mindful of the dark days that face the Church in these end times and may I live and work to Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for loving me so much that You sent the Lord Jesus to die for me and to pay the price for my sins. Thank You that He rose again and lives within my body. Thank You that in Your God-breathed Word I have all that I need to equip me to live my life as You intended - in total dependence on You, and it is all by grace through faith. Protect me from satanic deception, doctrines of demons and false teachers and help me to study to show myself approved, so that I may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.. to Your praise and glory - in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
