PRAYER GUIDE, “SALT & LIGHT: Another Aspect,” 30.01.19
Lord, I so want to be useful to Your Kingdom. Please equip me to move into still another level of being salt & light.
I know there is so much false doctrine & false teachings, people making assumptions, & believing whatever is told to them by whoever, because they have not studied Your Word for themselves, so they just rely on others & believe whatever false teachings they receive. Make me to just devour Your Word – to STUDY & INTEGRATE it with real life, so that I can not only apply it to my own life but assist others in doing so; so that I can point out false doctrine & wrong teachings, & help others avoid being deceived.
Grant me the wisdom in Your Word. Then grant me the bøldness to address challenges of Your Word, & to cønfront errøneous teachings. Like when people are talking about divorce, give me the bøldness to interject Yeshua’s teaching from Matt.5:31,32, that “everyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, makes her commit adultery; and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.” Let me fearlessly make it clear that there are limitations and restrictions on a believer’s use of divorce as a solution to a bad marriage, for Yeshua clearly said “Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her. And if she divorces her husband and marries another, she is committing adultery.” (Mk.10:11,12); & let me not be fearful of speaking that Truth. Let me not slink into politically correct jargon in order to please others. Let me shine Your Light on Your Truth.
I just want to be so bold in Your Truth that I will not hold back on speaking Your Truth, because only by speaking Your Truth am I going to season the things that need to be seasoned & shine Your Light on the things that need to be seen for what they are, according to Your Word.
Where there is hypocrisy & an appropriate opportunity for me to bring correction, let me introduce Matt. 23 & by Your Spirit’s anointing speak the Truth, in Love (Eph.4:15). I am so grateful that we do not need to follow man-made rules which were never prescribed nor endorsed by You, Father, & I want to be able to teach others who are in deception. I am grateful that You are a God more concerned with my heart than with rules and regulations. I am so much more impassioned to follow Jesus/Yeshua, than to worry about a rulebook. I am glad that You “do not see a man as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but Adonai looks into the heart” (1 Sam.16:7).
Let me be the “Salt & Light” that assists others in realizing that You are not fooled by those of us who would try to pacify You with rituals or sacrifices instead of offering our surrendered hearts of sincere worship. I understand Your desire for our heart’s desire to be sincerely motivated by our love for You, and thus being obedient to whatever You show us is what counts – that is why You rejected their offerings (1 Sam.15:22,23; Jer.7:21-24), & You will reject any such hypocritical offerings from us today as well. Let me be instrumental in modelling/teaching such Truths to Your people, I pray.
Give me a voice to speak up, to be Salt & Light, to be able to address the idolatry that comes before me that needs correction in someone’s life, who seems unaware, caught in the traps and snares of the Enemy. Or perhaps they are aware, but are caught up in rebellion & deception. Then open a door for me to minister to them, in prayer & deliverance, that they may be set free. Many are living in sin, and calling themselves children of God, living in deception, & without the Light of Truth exposing the lies of the Enemy. Plug me in & use me, Lord. Put me to work. Grant me opportunities, to make a difference to their walk. I want to make a difference in the Kingdom. I want to be Salt & Light, as Jesus/Yeshua commanded us to be. In His Holy, & precious Name. Amen.
