Lord, I pray that people of all nations will be awakened to the truth, which is found in the Bible. May these people also learn to love Your ways and not the ways of mankind. Help them to understand that beliefs and doctrines of men are dangerous and only lead to destruction. This includes worshiping idols. There is so much danger in the world we live in, not only physically but spiritually. We are fighting the battle between right and wrong each day and it makes it that much harder to know the truth when what is evil appears good. This is why, Lord, that we need to always have our eyes open to the deceitfulness of this world. And I know the only way we can do this is if we are built up in Your armor and have Your words in our hearts and in our minds. This way we will know if the teachings we learn in church come from You or not. And when we find out that teachings are not found in the Bible, help us know to question the person that is teaching and, of course, leave a false church behind. It is one thing for a person to wrongfully teach something that is contrary to God on purpose and not purposely do it. So Lord, we need people to question pastors and teachers when they have went against Your Word, and if they are not willing to see the wrong in doing so, it is also good for us to not stay with that church any longer. So may we always walk in Your light, that Your truth will always be with us. Thanks You Jesus for showing us the way. I love You. Amen.

Oh Lord, I pray that people that say they love You now, will also obey Your commands and do the things that are pleasing in Your sight. May mine and other people's testimonies of You speak louder than words, but also speak truthfully by our walk with You. Testify in us, Lord, what we ought to do, that is delightful and holy. Help us stay focused on things that are heavenly and stay apart from the wickedness of this world. I know the pains and sorrows that addiction can do to a person and I am so grateful that You have come into my life and brought me out of a life of bondage. I was surely enslaved in sexual sin, greed and covetousness, but through Your grace, I am healed. Through Your words, my life is strengthened enough to follow in Your light and to resist temptation now. Your words combined with prayer and living out what You say is true has built up the armor of faith in my life. Now I am able to do things with a clear conscience and know that what I am doing is for Your will and not my own. Surely, what makes me happy in life is not what this world offers but the love You bring to my soul daily and what I can do for others. As long as I have You near me, there is joy that never ends. This is what is most precious to my soul and what I need to be happy. It is not the things that this world that brings happiness, but Your presence, Lord. I am in awe at Your beauty. Thank You for Your forgiveness and mercy and leading me from darkness and into Your light. I can't wait till the day I will be with You forever in the New earth and heaven. I love You Lord. Amen.

Lord God, I pray that I and every other believer will keep the faith and stand strong in it till the very end. May every person that follows You now also abide with You always. I know that there are many people that have once knew You, but have since found their pleasures in this world and even died in their unbelief. Instead of seeking Your hand, while they had time, they instead gave it all up for the lusts of the flesh. I know that this is the devil's mission on earth and we must fight the good fight every day of our lives, or else we will also be among those that fall away. I am so grateful God for the Bible and for prayer. If It wasn't for Your words that are in my heart daily I'd be back committing the same old sins once again. It is because the Holy Spirit has come upon me is why my heart is made strong to resist temptation and sin. I know its effects on me and I don't want the shame and guilt that comes with it any longer. Instead, I desire to be built up in Your love, peace and joy. It is not worth having temporary pleasure in sexual sin, for it only destroys the soul. This is a killer of many people now a-days. Because so many people that even call themselves Christians live a secret life of pornography, I know that they will be judged harshly by Your hands. They will not be among the first resurrection, to life eternal, but instead be involved in the second, which is the second death and damnation in the lake of fire. So I pray that people's eyes will be opened to their sins and that they repent, starting today. These things I pray, in thy holy Name, Jesus. Amen.
