Loving Father, we lift before You all those that are called and chosen by You to be Your children. Bless each one and may Your grace and mercy, peace and love be abundantly poured out on all that trust in Christ as Saviour – and keeps us all we pray in these difficult days in which we live, as we contend earnestly for the faith… in Jesus name we pray, AMEN.
Give me wisdom and understanding to know how to address issues that are causing conflict between my brothers and sisters in Christ. Help me to contend earnestly the faith that was once delivered to the saints and which is recorded in the Word of God - but I pray that I may do it with wisdom and love - in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, keep me looking to Jesus and grounded on the Word of truth so that I will not be influenced by the false teachings and satanic doctrines that are flooding our churches today. Give me discernment to know the truth and wisdom to keep my eyes fixed on Jesus alone, and not be tossed about by any wind of doctrine - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the truth of Your word. Keep me grounded on the Word of truth and prevent me from falling prey to apostate teachers, heretical teachings and false prophets. Protect those I love from the increasing amount of false teaching that is permeating the church today.. and may we give the Lord Jesus, the honour and glory due to His name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the serious warning of apostasy and heretical teaching, that is so pervasive today. Help me to know the truth and recognise any false teachers and teachings that have crept into the flock unnoticed. Protect Your people from those that would seek to shipwreck the faith of believers, and open the eyes of those that are lost and facing eternal separation from You and punishment in the fires of judgement – this we ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the short epistle of Jude, which exhorts us to contend earnestly for the faith, to maintain an uncompromised gospel. Help us to expose and reject the various heresies and apostasies that are rife in our time. May we look to Jesus our blessed Hope.. and give us courage.. to pray earnestly for our leaders, support the weak, help the afflicted.. and love and serve all men, to Your praise and glory, in Jesus name we pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the important instructions and information that You have given us in Your word. I pray that You would show me any areas in my life that are dishonouring to You. Keep me from the influence and errors of apostate men and guide me into all truth - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, in a world that is spiralling out of control and a church that is becoming increasingly apostate, I pray that You would keep me from straying from the path of righteousness and guide me into all truth, by the power of Your Holy Spirit.. as I study the word of God and seek to do only those things that are pleasing in Your sight. This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Father I know that there are many dangers and difficulties in life that combine to ship-wreck my faith in You. I desire to love You more, to know You better, to keep the Lord Jesus as the centre of my life and to grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus. Give me wisdom to discern what is not from You and in Your mercy, keep me under the shadow of Your protection, in Jesus name I pray. AMEN.
Loving Father, protect my mind from the false doctrines that are sweeping the church today and help me to remain in Christ – thank You that You are able and willing to keep me from stumbling – into Your hands I commit my life, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, open the eyes of my heart to see Your glorious majesty, Your sovereign power, Your pre-eminent authority and Your magnificent glory, for You alone are worthy of all glory, majesty, dominion and authority, both now and forevermore, AMEN.
