Heavenly Father, we thank You for every life that has been born from above and is now in union with Christ Jesus our Head and Saviour. Guard and guide each one, and protect their hearts and minds from the deceit and lies that only come for the devil, who is the father of all lies, the great deceiver of men's souls and a murderer from the beginning. Guide each one we pray in to the way of truth and give them wisdom and sound judgement, to recognize the workings of the mystery of iniquity.
Into Your hands we place each blood-bought child of God and pray Your protection on their lives. Give them discernment to choose the good and reject the evil and may each one come to a deeper knowledge of Christ and develop a thirst to know You more and more, so that individually as believers and collectively as the Church of Christ. We pray that all You purposes for each of Your children, may be accomplished in each life, to Your praise and glory - we ask this in the precious name of Jesus,
