Heavenly Father, thank You for the Word of Life and the truths that it contains. Lord, there is so much more that I need to understand about Your unique programme with Israel and Your agenda for the Church. Give me discernment to know which Scriptures are directed toward Israel and which ones are directed toward the Church. Help me to not become confused or bound up in legalism by trying to fulfil directives that were not given to believers in the Dispensation of Grace. Thank You, in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the many warnings, throughout Your Word, of the profusion of insidious teachings and unbiblical doctrines that are flooding the Church today. Keep me pure in heart, sound in doctrine, looking to Jesus, and anchored to the Rock of my salvation, for His name's sake. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the ministries of Peter and Paul. They both had specific, distinct, yet complimentary callings from You, and they were both faithful to help and encourage those You had called them to minister to. I thank You for those that have helped and encouraged me in my own Christian walk, and likewise, I pray that I may carry out the work You have prepared for me to do. May everything I do be to Your glory and to bring more to a saving knowledge of Christ. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the wonderful way the joint ministries of Peter and Paul, were united in teaching the truth of the gospel of Christ. Thank You for the corrective teachings in Galatians about perverting the gospel of grace by returning to legalistic practices which can so often be permitted in our places of worship. Keep me alert to any deceptive practices and thank You that I am both saved by Your grace and kept by Your grace. Keep me pure in thought, word, deed, and doctrine. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word which gives clear teachings on the means of salvation, which is by grace through faith in Christ. Lord, I see how easy it is to allow fear of men to cause any one of us to compromise our faith. Help me to stand fast on the Word of truth and not to fear what man can say or do to me, especially other believers who have become legalistic in their beliefs, or who water down the gospel to be politically correct. Help me to not only speak the truth in love, but also to be prepared to challenge those, in love, whose Christian conduct does not line up with Scripture. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, keep me mindful of the truth of Your Word, and prevent me from being influenced away from the truth of the gospel into any erroneous teachings. Guide me into all truth and help me to become increasingly familiar with the glorious gospel of grace, that Christ died and rose again according to the Scripture, as the sacrificial offering for sin. Help me to be vigilant in testing the teachings of others. Help me to search the Scriptures daily to see if I am holding fast to the truth of Your Word and not compromising Scripture, or deviating into legalism or some other deviant doctrine. Give me a teachable spirit and lead me in the path of righteousness, for His name's sake. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for this glorious truth that I am not justified by the works of the Law and that there is nothing that I can say or do to merit my own salvation. I am justified only by faith in the finished work of Christ Jesus on Calvary's Cross. Thank You that Christ gave His life as a ransom for me and became a curse on my account so that I might become the righteousness of God in Him. Praise His holy name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the liberty I have in Christ and for the truth that I have in Your Word. Thank You that it is not by works of the law that we are justified, but simply by grace through faith in the person and work of Christ. Keep me from developing any religious bias or from being influenced by legalism. I pray that I may be filled with a knowledge of Your will and purpose for my life so that I may walk in a manner worthy of You and honour You in every way. This I ask in Jesus' name and for His greater glory, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that I am identified with Christ, by grace through faith in His death, burial, and Resurrection. Thank You that in Him, I am dead to the Law and removed from its condemnation, having been clothed in His eternal righteousness. I humbly submit that I have no righteousness of my own, but only that which comes through faith in Christ. Praise His holy name, AMEN.
Thank You, Father, for Your indwelling Holy Spirit Who was sent to lead and guide me and all believers through this earthly life, and Who lives in me. Teach me to listen to His voice and recognise His promptings. I pray that, more and more, Your will, not mine be done until I can say with Paul, "the life that I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself for me." In Jesus' name, AMEN.
