Prayer to Be Guided Into All Truth
Heavenly Father, I come to You in poverty of spirit, to seek Your face during a time when the truth of Your Word seems to be being attacked on every side, and few seem to know or understand about the truth of Scripture. Father, it is sometimes hard to know what is true in a world when everything to do with God is being attacked, not only in the secular arena but in many Christian ministries as well.
You promised that Your Holy Spirit would guide Your children into all truth, especially those that seek You with all their whole hearts and Lord, I want to seek You and know You more and more but Lord, I do not want to be influenced by wrong doctrine or false teaching.
Keep me I pray, and guide me in my life as I read Your Word and study the scriptures. Prevent me Lord, from being swept into the many false doctrines that are sweeping through Christendom today. Give me a discerning heart I pray, and help me to find a teacher that will teach me the whole council of Your Word of Truth so that I may grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Thank You Father, in Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
To Pray In Spirit And Truth
Heavenly Father, we are told to pray in spirit and truth and I ask You to show me how to pray in spirit and truth. Teach me Lord, to pray as You would have me pray.
I pray that my human spirit may be led and guided by Your Holy Spirit, Who by faith in Christ is living in me, so that I may be directed to pray in accordance with Your will. I pray that my human spirit may be submitted to Your Spirit of Truth, for I know the He alone can guide me into all truth.
As I bow before Your throne in humility and thankful praise for this privilege of prayer that has been bestowed on all Your children, I pray that You would guide my prayers by the truth of Your Word, so that my prayers and supplications may be in accordance with Your will and in line with Your desires.
Teach me Lord, to pray in spirit and truth, so that my humble requests may become to You a sweet savour, and glorify my Father Who is in heaven. I ask this in Jesus’ name, Amen.
Prayer for Truth in Our Country’s Leadership
Lord Jesus, I come to You astonished and saddened by the many lies that are being perpetrated in some of the highest corridors of power in the land, and it seems that no one can or will do anything to address what is effectively a clamp-down on truth.
Father, for too long I have allowed the evils that seem to be swamping our world in general and our country in particular to wash over me, but Lord there are so many evils that have ravaged our people, and goodness and truth seem to be a thing of the dim and distant past, especially the truth of Your Word.
Lord, forgive me for not opening my eyes earlier to what is going on, but I pray that You would use me now to lift up my brothers and sisters in prayer, who are being aggressively attacked, ridiculed and even persecuted for righteousness sake, for speaking the truth.
Look down in pity on Your children and on all who are being systematically targeted by a government that is causing increasing number of people to find themselves in severe hardships, having lost their homes and families, their livelihood and dignity.
Lord, I know that nothing is going to change the downward spiral that we are currently facing, but Lord, I pray that despite the disasters we face, that You will bring good out of evil. I ask Lord, that the lies that are being perpetrated in some of the highest corridors of power in the land will be the tool that will bring many people to salvation in Christ Jesus and bring them to trust in the eternal truth of Your Word. I know that until You come to set up Your millennial kingdom on earth, nothing will breach the tide of evil that is sweeping over our land. Have pity on us and our country and guide us into all truth I pray. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
