Lord, Your Spirit clearly says that in the later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons (1 Tim. 4:1). Please help me to be very discerning of deceptive teaching. Help me never to abandon the faith to follow after a lie.

Father God, You want to present me holy in Your sight, without blemish and free from accusation, and You will do this if I continue in my faith, not moved from the hope held out in the gospel (Col. 1:22-23).

I pray, too, that You will place others in my path who will continue with me for my progress and joy in the faith (Phil. 1:25).
