Dear Lord, I desire to be clear-minded in a time when deceit and deception floods into our minds from so many quarters, and so I pray that I would learn to take every though captive, so that I may not be tossed about by the many winds of doctrines that can cause such confusion in our minds, and distort the truth of Your word.
Father I do not want to be swept into the world’s way of thinking and pray that You would give me increasing and ongoing clarity of thought in my home, my work and in the general activities of life as well as my special times of devotion, payer and fellowship meetings with other believers.
Open the eyes of my understanding I pray and give me real wisdom. Help me not to fall into a spiritual slumber but rather to remain alert and watchful, knowing that the days are evil. Thank You Lord that I am Your blood-bought child and that nothing can separate me from Your love - and give me the grace I pray to stand fast until the day of Christ Jesus, in Whose name I pray,
Father God, Your children are being deluged with many false teachers, damaging doctrines and deceitful tactics and the enemy prowls around like a ravenous wolf seeking to scatter the flock and shipwreck many of Your servants – and Lord the church is being flooded with dangerous books and destructive media that is causing such confusion.. and Lord, many are falling into the traps that the enemy is setting.
Look down in pity on all Your people and guide them into the way of truth. Provide spiritual stability we pray in the lives of those that have little or no sound doctrinal teaching. Raise up we pray good men and ministries that are seeking to lift up the name of the Lord Jesus and teach the whole counsel of God.
Lord it was the apostle Paul that warned us of the ravenous wolves that would scatter the flock – but You are mighty to save and we pray that You will continue to build Your Church and bring many to spiritual maturity – to the glory of Your name,
Father, there is an ever-encroaching darkness that is spreading across our nation in particular and the world in general.. and morality, truth and virtue are quickly being replaced with an evil and unbiblical society.
Bless we pray, and protect those that are seeking to uphold the truth of the gospel and give each one spirit-empowered discernment and wisdom to follow the path of truth and to renounce the evils that are seeking to encroach, suffocate and confuse those that trust in Your holy name.
Thank You that in the power of Your Holy Spirit You have enabled and empowered all those that trust in Jesus as Saviour to stand firm. Thank You that you have endowed us with the spiritual armour that we need to shun evil – and equip us all with all that is needful to stand fast in the evil day. This we ask in the name of the Lord Jesus,
Heavenly Father, protect and guide us we pray in these days of deceitful practices and increasing confusion in our places of worship, and give to Your children discernment to recognise the truth of the gospel of Christ and reject all teaching that is counter to Your Word.
Thank You that You have given us all that we need for godly living and forgive us for the times when we have left the straight path of truth to drink at the enemy’s poisoned cisterns. Help us to discern truth from error and to stand fast in the faith of the Son of God – Who loved us and gave Himself for us.
Raise up we pray an army of godly men who will teach the whole council of God and give them the courage to stand against any false teachers that they may encounter. Help all Your people to be diligent in their study, wise in their choices and grant discernment to all who are seeking the truth. We ask this in the name of Jesus,
