“Now the serpent was the most cunning of all the wild animals that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You can’t eat from any tree in the garden’?”Genesis 3:1
Father, Your word is true and Your heart is good! I pray this will be the foundation for our lives with You. I pray that in every believer’s home where Your Word is being challenged by the lies of the enemy, Your Holy Spirit would fall with power.
I pray for those who are feeling their doubts, who believe but need You to help their unbelief, the ones who want to run their race but cannot seem to untangle themselves from the lies that hold them back. Father, would You show Yourself to them? Would You enable them to put their doubt to rest and separate the lies from Your truth? Help their unbelief, Lord.
I pray for the ones who have wandered from Your truth, who have heard the voice of the enemy with his “did God really say?”, and fallen for his lie. Bring them back, Father. Go after them with Your loving and merciful truth, open their blinded eyes, and turn them back. I pray that You will bring them again to sound doctrine, to the freedom found only in Your truth.
In this way, Father, strengthen Your Church. Surround her with Your Spirit, and bring strength to her weak places, hope to her discouragement, and healing to her wounds. For Your enemy is roaming, Lord, looking for those he can devour. I pray that You will guard Your Bride against his desire to consume her.
Today, Jesus, would we hear Your voice again. Today, would Your truth rise bigger than our doubts. Today, would You come into our wilderness and lead us out.
In Your Name I pray. Amen.
