Prayer for Galatians 5

Prayer For Alcoholic Son

Father, I thank You for the many blessings that You have graciously bestowed on me, and in such abundance, but Lord my heart aches for my son, who has become so addicted to alcohol causing his life to almost spiral out of control.
 
Lord I am powerless to do anything to help him and he seems so lost and in so pain and I beg You Father to intervene in his life and show us what we can do to get things under control.. help him to break free of this terrible addiction and get back some semblance of normality due to this into this heart-rending situation.
 
Lord I know that You have plans for my son and yet he has strayed so far from the path of Your choosing – but Father I pray that in Your grace and mercy You would show us what to do to free him from His addiction to alcohol. Give me Your strength of Your mighty power to support his through this difficult time and help him I pray to break free from his alcoholism – and to You be all the praise and glory - this I ask in Jesus name,
 
Amen

“Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.”

Heavenly Father, thank You for the important teachings of Paul in the book of Galatians and the serious peril that comes from trying to be justified by works of the Law rather than as a free gift of grace - through faith in Christ Jesus our Lord. It staggers my understanding that You should love sinners, such as me, to the extent that You gave Your only Begotten Son, to become the substitute for my sin and that by faith in Him alone, I am declared righteous in Your sight and covered in His righteousness. Were it not for the Lord Jesus, I could never be justified in my own merit - but I praise and thank You for Your wonderful plan of redemption, whereby I am credited with righteousness - through faith. Thank You in Jesus' name I pray, AMEN. 

“Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.”

Heavenly Father, I pray that I may wait with patience and grace, as through the power of the Holy Spirit I continue to look for the any day return of the Lord Jesus and wait for the glorious 'hope of righteousness'. Help me to know You more and more with each passing day and may my life and conversation be a true reflection of the life of Christ living in me, to Your praise and glory, AMEN.

“For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.”

Heavenly Father, thank You that Your Word stands fast for ever and ever and that no matter what evil agendas may be used by the enemy to discredit Your name, to belittle the Person and Work of the Lord Jesus, to blind the eyes of the unsaved and to shipwreck the lives of those that have been saved by grace through faith, we pray that You would finish the good work that You have started, not only in the lives of Christians.. but in the lives of all who will one day come to a saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ - so that His name may be glorified throughout all the earth, and in Whose name we pray, AMEN.

“Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth?”

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your written Word and the truth of the gospel. Help us to discern any false doctrine that may be seeping into the Church – or into our own heart. May we anchor our soul to the Word of God as the bed-rock of our faith, and refuse to allow legalism, liberalism or any other kind of compromised truth to seep in and ruin our witness. This we ask in Jesus name, AMEN.

“A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.”

Heavenly Father, thank You that You started a good work in me at my salvation, and have promised to complete it at the day of Christ. Thank You that my eternal salvation does not depend on what I do for You but on what Christ has done for me. Protect my heart and mind from any of the false teachings that have infiltrated Christendom today and help me never to substitute slavery to the Law for the freedom I have in Christ. Thank You that justification is by faith alone, through faith in Christ, and not by works of the law. I pray that I would hold fast to the truth of Your word day by day and study to show myself approved unto You, for Your greater praise and glory - this I ask in Jesus name. AMEN.

“I have confidence in you through the Lord, that ye will be none otherwise minded: but he that troubleth you shall bear his judgment, whosoever he be.”

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your written Word and for the simple message of salvation - that it is Your free gift of grace, through faith alone in Christ alone as written in Your precious Word. Thank You that there is nothing I need to do to to procure my salvation other than believe on the Person and Work of Lord Jesus Christ, alone. Thank You that my salvation does not rest on what I have done but on what He has done on my behalf. Keep me, I pray, looking to Jesus alone in Whose name I pray, AMEN.

“And I, brethren, if I yet preach circumcision, why do I yet suffer persecution? then is the offence of the cross ceased.”

Heavenly Father, Thank You that although I was dead in trespasses and sins You saved me by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. Thank You that You have given me a regenerated human spirit and the power, to live my life in spirit and truth. I pray that day-by-day I may walk by means of the Spirit, and submit to His leading and guiding. Help me to listen to His voice, submit to His will, and be obedient to His correction, so that I will not succumb to the desires of the flesh but rather walk in newness of life, in His power and strength - in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.”

Source: Verse of the day for Galatians 5:16

Heavenly Father, I know that I am weak and that my fleshly nature lusts against the new Christ-like nature that I have received as a free gift of grace when I first trusted Christ as Saviour. I pray that I would make the right choices and not yield to the old sin nature but submit to the leading and guiding of the Holy Spirit within, so that I may grow in grace and mature in the faith, to Your praise and glory, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.

“For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.”

Heavenly Father, thank You that I have been saved by grace through faith in Christ and am no longer under the law but under grace. Thank You that my old, fallen nature was crucified with Christ on the cross - and I pray that it will remain nailed to the tree, so that I may be led by the Spirit of God and walk in newness of Christ's life within. Keep me I pray from fleshly inclinations and legalistic practices that place me back in bondage to my old sin nature and the works of the flesh - but help me to live and move and have my being in You.. so that I can say as Paul did - the life that I live is not my old sin nature that lives in me but the life of Christ, living through me - in Whose name I pray, AMEN.

“But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.”

Prayer Of Gratitude For Love

Thank You Lord for loving me so much that You sent Your only begotten Son to die on my behalf on a cruel cross and take upon Himself my sins. Thank You that He identified with my sinfulness so that I might be identified with His righteousness, by grace through faith in Christ. How grateful I am that while I was still a lost sinner Christ died for me.
 
How thankful I am Lord that You searched me out and found me and brought me back into Your family, even though I was dead in my sins and at enmity with You. Praise Your holy name, for You are a good God and Your loving-kindness endures forever and I will be eternally grateful that You are my God and I am Your child.
 
Thank You that You are my helper and healer. Thank You that You are my refuge and strength and  thank You that You have surrounded me with people who love me dearly.. and whom I love too. Lord I do not deserve any of Your grace and goodness and yet day by day You pour new and rich mercies into my lap and cover me with Your blessings. Praise God that You are the Rock of my Salvation,
 
Amen
