Prayer for Titus 3

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your goodness and grace and the wonderful way that You have disclosed to us our roles and responsibilities.. not only in our Christian fellowships, but in the wider, secular world in which we live. May we live honourable lives, which display a godly integrity and Christian grace.. to all with whom we come in contact, and may we.. from this day forward, live a life that honours Your holy name - this we ask in Jesus name. AMEN

“Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,”
(Titus 3:1)

Heavenly Father, thank You for the truths that are contained in Your word and for the stark reminders of what I was before my salvation. Thank You that I have been saved by grace through faith and I pray that I may take to heart the warning and instructions that are given in this little letter to Titus. I pray that I may give due respect to those in authority and demonstrate the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God to a lost and dying world - so that I may see who I am in Christ and come to know Him as their Redeemer and Lord to Your honour and glory - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN

“For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.”

Thank You Father for Your Love towards me, and for the abundance of Your gift of Life, which is simply through faith in the Person of the Lord Jesus and His work on the cross. I pray that in the power of the Spirit of love I may live my life in a way that is pleasing to You so that through me Your life-giving love may stream out to those that are lost and hurting, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.

Loving Father thank You that I am justified – made a new creation in Christ and sealed with the promise of the Holy Spirit - by Your grace and mercy, which has placed me in the position of becoming an heir of the hope of eternal life, in Jesus name – I thank YOU, AMEN.

“That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”

Heavenly Father, as I see the world being “divided-and-conquered” by wicked men, I pray that You would enable me to stand fast in this evil day, speak the truth and refuse to be manipulated by foolish controversies, genealogies, strife, doctrinal disputes and other areas of Christian compromise, knowing that they are unprofitable and worthless – and are used as a tool of the enemy, to hinder the glorious gospel. Make me an effective witness to Your greater praise and glory – this I pray in Jesus name AMEN.

“But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.”

Heavenly Father, thank You for this wise advise from Paul.. to reject a factious man after a first and second warning. Lord I confess that too often I have wasted valuable time, trying appease a person, whose obvious aim is to cause division or acrimony within the body of Christ... because of some pet preoccupation with one small doctrinal issue, in pursuit of their cherished ideal or to justify their own unbiblical ideas. Help me to identify those that deliberately seek to cause division in the body of Christ, and give me the grace to remain silent, rather than being pulled into some unfruitful argument - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.

“A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject;”
(Titus 3:10)

Heavenly Father, thank You for the wise instruction of Paul about division within the church, and the need to address those that are divisive. Keep me from becoming entrapped in any form of legalism, help me to recognise and avoid many of the heresies, unbiblical teachings and legalistic rituals that are infiltrating so many congregations today, and give Church elders the wisdom and discernment to address any division within the body of Christ, speedily, wisely and biblically, so that others may not be misled. This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.

“Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.”
