Prayer for John 10:12

“The hired man, since he is not the shepherd and doesn't own the sheep, leaves them and runs away when he sees a wolf coming. The wolf then snatches and scatters them.”

Praying through John 10:12

Heavenly Father, thank You that Jesus is the Good and Great Shepherd of the sheep and that He has brought me into his extended sheepfold and died so that I might live. Keep me ever mindful that there are hired hands who are not true pastors, and teachers who deliberately deceive the people of God or misguidedly lead your people astray because they lack sound, scriptural understanding. I pray that I would increase in my knowledge and understanding of Scripture, so that I will not be hoodwinked by a wolf in sheep's clothing or led astray by unbiblical teachings. Keep me looking to Jesus and help me to grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
