Christian Strength regarding Doctrinal and Practical Conviction

Pray for Christian fortitude and conviction in this difficult time of society’s growing disapproval of Christianity. (2 Tim. 1.1-14; Heb. 10-19-25)

  1. Pray for Christians that we would not fear men, disease, persecution, or any other thing, but that we would fear God and keep His commandments, as the whole sum of the matter, resting in Christ and His salvation. (Ecclesiastes 12.13-14)
  2. As the society around us becomes less and less tolerant of Christian doctrine and practice, and intolerant of the Commandments of the Lord, pray that Christians would love the Lord all the more, His commandments and doctrine, and that the Lord would provide strength of conviction in all that His Word teaches, in doctrine and practice. (2 Timothy 1.13)
  3. Pray that the people of God would not fear the gathering of forces together against them in a “confederacy” but that we would sanctify the Lord of Hosts, having Him as our fear, and Him as our dread, (Isaiah 8.12-13) and that we would also have that ready answer to all who ask of our hope, speaking of the great things He has done for us. (1 Peter 3.15)
  4. Pray that the reasonings of this world, its theories and paradigms of thought would not find a home in our minds, but that we would bring every thought captive to the obedience of Christ, that the vain philosophies of this world would pale, and the Word of God come into full focus. (2 Corinthians 10.1-6; Colossians 2.4-12)
  5. Pray that the people of God would not love this world and its approval, but that we would seek to please the Lord and follow Him, recognizing that it is he alone whom we serve. (John 12.43; 1 Corinthians 4.1-5)
  6. Pray for a competent and abiding confession of Christ before men, no matter the consequences, following Christ in all things, and not being moved off of Christian commitments, never denying Him in word or deed. (Matthew 10.32-42)
  7. Pray for encouragement, Christian to Christian, in the face of growing disdain for Christian doctrine and practice, that the body of Christ would edify one another in faith, doctrine, and obedience, by exhortation and example. (Ephesians 4.15-16)
  8. Pray that Christians would not bite and devour one another in these days of growing disapproval from society toward Christianity, but that we would love one another according to the fruit of the Spirit. (Galatians 5.13-26)
  9. Pray especially for the ministers of the Gospel, that they would refuse compromise with the world, the flesh, and the devil, but instead would preach the Word, fully, faithfully, and comprehensively. (2 Timothy 4.1-5; Acts 20.27-28)
  10. Pray that Christians would not fear to bear the reproach of Christ, knowing that we have a greater reward that this world can give. (Hebrews 13.13; Matthew 5.11-12)
