Heavenly Father, I pray this day for ______________________ , whom I love in the truth. I pray that your truth will live in them and be with them forever. May grace, mercy, and peace from you and from Jesus Christ be with them in truth and love. I pray that they will enjoy good health and that all will go well with their soul. I have no greater joy than to hear that they are faithful to the truth and continue to walk in the truth. Please prompt them to walk in love for others and to walk in obedience to your commands. I ask you to protect them from deceivers who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ so that they may not lose what they have worked for but instead that you may reward them fully. I pray that none of us will run ahead of the Word but rather that we will continue in the teaching of Christ, and refuse to embrace or support those who do not bring the teaching of Christ, so that we may not have any part in their evil works. May we show hospitality to those who work for the sake of the Name and help them in a manner worthy of you. Protect us from pride and from a love of preeminence and a desire to be first. Check us before we engage in any kind of malicious gossip. I pray that we will welcome all those who come to us in your name, and support those who acknowledge the authority of the apostles in their teaching. May we not imitate what is evil but only what is good, so that we may be well spoken of by everyone, even by the truth itself. In the name of Jesus, grant us the full measure of your peace that surpasses understanding. Amen.
