PRAYER GUIDE, “AVOIDING THE SNARES OF DECEPTION,” 28.02.19
Oh, Father, so many of Your very own are operating under a spirit of deception today. I pray that You would release Your Holy Spirit to send a fresh Wind to blow away the lies, and false notions and teachings. Lift the veil off Your people who are not seeing for themselves what Your Word says. Make a way that each would come off the wide road onto the narrow path of Truth (Matt.7:13,14).
Alert Your people, Lord, to the deception of the global movement, which is nothing more than a demonic-induced secular humanist approach to life, doubling as the new One-World Religion, joined at the hip with the environmental save the planet/global warming affiliation. Alert Your people, Lord, for “Satan presents himself as an angel of light” (2 Cor.11:14), and all these issues appear, at the surface, to be well-intended, and so many are getting pulled into the idolatry of this movement, under the guise of doing good works. Rip the blinders off people’s eyes to see that these things are not a cause for us to take up; and “what fellowship does light have with darkness?” (2 Cor. 6:14). Yeshua warned us: “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and those who enter through it are many. How narrow is the gate and difficult the way that leads to life, and those who find it are few” (Matt.7:13,14). The Global Secular Humanist Movement is entirely inclusive, while Yeshua’s Way is entirely exclusive. The two are entirely oppositional approaches.
May we all be cognizant of the fact that we are the temple of the living God—just as when You said, “I will dwell in them and walk among them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. Therefore, come out from among them, and be separate, says Adonai. Touch no unclean thing. Then I will take you in” (2 Corinthians 6:14-17). Make Your Word be our foundation, and guide. Let us apply it, and walk in the Truth. Yeshua clarified: “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life; no man comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6). May we walk in accordance with these teachings.
Grant Your people to seek always for discernment and wisdom, to know the difference between what is from You and what is not in line with Your Word, for “Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your …I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness” (Matt.7:21-23), for those “works” will not count. Give each one Your Heart to do in accordance with YOUR will, & from a heart motivated to glorify YOU, for Your Word makes it clear that only those good works done for Your glory, in Your Name (I Cor.3:13-15) are going to count for anything on the Day of Judgment, for “the fire itself will test each one’s work—what sort it is. If anyone’s work built on the foundation survives, he will receive a reward. If anyone’s work is burned up, he will suffer loss—he himself will be saved, but as through fire.” Let us “not be deceived—God is not mocked. For whatever a man sows, that he also shall reap” (Gal.6:7).
Convict each one, Lord; grip our hearts with vice grips, that we would do everything “as to the Lord” (Col.3:23; Eph.6:7), not for ourselves or for the approval and acclaim of the world. May we keep in mind “that our bodies are Your temples . . . . . that we are not our own . . . were bought with a price . . . we are to glorify God with our body”(I Cor.6:19,20), not seek to glorify ourselves through our bodies. Forgive us for our carnal weaknesses whereby we seek pleasure through our bodies, instead of seeking to please YOU and honour YOU with what we do with these earthly bodies You’ve given us.
Make us to do things YOUR way, not for the approval of man. Convict each one that we are not free to join forces with worldly movements, for they are not in YOUR service. Steer us away from all self-serving, self-elevating, self-glorifying, and from joining worldly movements with worldly causes, for we cannot be unequally yoked; we cannot serve two masters simultaneously (Matt.6:24).
By Your Spirit, Holy Father, lead us by Your Glorious Light, that we will not fall into the traps and snares of deception, and be caused to “fall away and betray one another and hate one other.” (Matt.24:10). Make us aware of the false prophets in our midst which are leading many astray (Matt.24:11,12). Make us to guard our hearts so our love for YOU will not grow cold. May a fire burn in our hearts for YOU, for YOUR Kingdom, oh Lord. Let YOUR KINGDOM come down on this earth now, and Your will be done on this earth, as it is in Heaven. In Jesus/Yeshua’s Name.
