Loving Father, thank You that in Your grace, You sent Jesus to be the propitiation for my sins and that by believing on Him, I have been brought into Your heavenly family and clothed in His righteousness. Praise His holy name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, I praise and thank You for the life and ministry of Paul and for the many epistles he penned which so clearly lay out the gospel of salvation. Thank You for my great salvation, the freedom I have in Christ Jesus, and the warning against legalism in the epistle to the Galatians. Keep the pulpits of today's churches free from legalism, and give discernment to your people so they may recognise legalistic teachings and expose those who would try to bring Your people back under bondage. Help me to recognise when legalism rears its ugly head and I pray that those that have been enticed into this destructive way of thinking would find their liberty in Christ, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that in Your grace and wisdom, Christ gave Himself for my sins and for the sins of the whole world so that by grace through faith in Him, all who believe might be rescued from this present evil age. Thank You that You chose, in eternity past, to plan for the salvation of mankind, who by rights should remain guilty as charged. Praise Your holy name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that my salvation does not depend on what I do, but on what Christ did for me on the Cross. Help me not to add additional legalistic requirements to my Christian life, knowing that it is not works of the flesh that can keep me saved, but that I am saved forever by God’s grace, through faith in Jesus Christ. To Him be all praise and glory, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the glorious gospel of Christ. Thank You for Your grace which has brought me into Your heavenly family, by faith in Jesus' finished work at Calvary. Keep me from falling into the error of trying to perfect myself, by means of my own fleshly works and legalistic acts. I know that it is only by means of the Holy Spirit Who works in my 'new-life-in-Christ' by grace, that I can live a life that honours You. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the God-breathed Scriptures and the truth that they contain within their pages. Thank You that I am no longer under the Law, but I am saved by grace through faith in Christ. Help me never to be enticed from this truth by another gospel. Give me discernment to recognise when the gospel of Christ is being compromised in any way. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that Christ died to pay the price for my sins and that He rose again so that the power of sin might be broken in my life. I pray that I may not slip into legalistic practices by trying to win Your favour or mature as a Christian by means of carrying out legalistic rules or performing works of the flesh. I pray that I simply stand on the truth of the glorious gospel of grace, which has set me free from all forms of legalism, by grace through faith in Christ’s finished work - not only in this life but in the life to come, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, as I continue to read through the book of Galatians and realise the terrible consequences of going back under legalistic rules and regulations which seem to be practiced by so many in Christendom today, I thank You that I have been set free from the law of sin and death and pray that I may walk in newness of life to Your praise and glory, as I apply all that You would teach me through Your Word. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the many epistles of Paul. May I take to heart all that is written in the Word of God and seek to apply all that is taught to Church-age believers, by Paul and Your other holy apostles. Keep me from being hood-winked by false teachings, self-appointed apostles, and extra-biblical doctrines... and may I live and work to Your praise and glory. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word and the truth that we have been given through the ministry and mission of the apostle Paul. Keep me from falling into any kind of legalism or false teaching, and give me discernment to recognise when a different gospel is being taught. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for calling Paul to be set apart to minister to the Gentiles who were dead in trespasses and sins and without hope in the world, but he told them that by grace through faith in Christ, they may become part of the one new man. Thank You for calling me by Your grace. I dedicate myself to Your service and pray that You would use my life any way You choose, as a testimony to the truth of the gospel of Christ. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the ministry of Paul and the many truths You have revealed to the Church, through his writings. Keep me from legalistic leanings, and I pray that in the power of the Holy Spirit, I may live and work to Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the ministry of Paul and the wonderful example of a man who heard God's call on his life and was ready and willing to respond and obey. I pray that I may be like this apostle and be ready and willing to listen to Your voice, obey Your call, and fulfil Your will for my life, for Your greater praise and glory. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the ministries of both Peter and Paul and the careful way You have used their teachings to guide us into all truth. Thank You that we are not encumbered with the Jewish legal system with its numerous rituals and regulation. Thank You that by Your grace, Jew and Gentile have been united together in the mystical Body of Christ and are one in Him. May we share the gospel of grace with lost sinners for Your greater praise and glory. Thank You that the day is coming when the gospel of the kingdom will once again be preached throughout the world and Jesus will return to set up His kingdom on earth. This I pray in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Dear Heavenly Father, I realise that adding anything to the simple message of salvation by grace through faith, is an affront to You and a devaluing of Christ's finished work on the Cross. Give me the wisdom to discern when legalists are teaching another gospel. Expose any false teaching and prevent me from being influenced away from the truth of the glorious gospel of grace. Thank You for the sacrifice Jesus made on my behalf. To Him be all praise and glory, AMEN.
