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 towards Israel and which ones are directed towards the Church, so that I may not become confused, or bound up in legalism, by trying to fulfill directives that were not given to believers in the dispensation of the grace of God. Thank You that I have been saved by grace through faith in Christ, Who took the punishment for my sin, and rose again to give me His eternal life - Thank You in Jesus name, AMEN.

Praying through Galatians 2:9

Heavenly Father, thank You for the teachings of both Peter and Paul and for the wonderful way their joint ministries 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.”

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 2:14

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 we are not justified by the works of the Law and that there is nothing that I can say or do to merit my own salvation - knowing that 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.”

Heavenly Father, thank You for the liberty I have in Christ and for the truth that I have in Your Word. Thank You that is 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.

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.  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.”
