Prayer for Galatians 2

Praying through Galatians 2:3

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.

Praying through Galatians 2:4

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.

“And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage:”

Praying through Galatians 2:8

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.

“(For he that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision, the same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles:)”

Praying through Galatians 2:9

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.

“And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision.”
(Galatians 2:9)

Praying through Galatians 2:11

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.

“But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed.”

Praying through Galatians 2:12

Heavenly Father, I come before You today in awe and reverence of Your mighty power and grace. Thank You for the gift of Your Word and the truth it contains. I pray for Your guidance and protection as I seek to stand firm in my faith and trust in You. Help me to discern false teachings and challenge corrupt teachings with courage and conviction. Give me the strength to stand up for what I believe in, even if it means going against the grain. Help me to remain true to my convictions and never be swayed by the opinions of others, however influential they may appear. I ask that You would fill me with Your Spirit and give me the wisdom to seek out the truth in Your Word. May I be ready to give an answer for the hope I have in the glorious gospel of grace. In Jesus' name, AMEN.

“For before that certain came from James, he did eat with the Gentiles: but when they were come, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them which were of the circumcision.”

Praying through Galatians 2:14

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.

“But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews?”
(Galatians 2:14)

Praying through Galatians 2:16

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.

“Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.”

Praying through Galatians 2:18

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.

“For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor.”

Praying through Galatians 2:19

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.

“For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God.”

Praying through Galatians 2:20

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.

“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”

Praying through Galatians 2:21

Heavenly Father, I come to You in humble gratitude and praise for Your unconditional love. Thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus to pay the price for my sin, and for granting me the gift of grace. Thank You for delivering me from the burden of having to constantly strive for perfection, and for reminding me that there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. I pray that You will fill me with Your peace and joy as I accept this gift of grace. Thank You for Your mercy, Your kindness, Your goodness, Your grace, and for loving me unconditionally. In Jesus' name, AMEN.

“I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.”
