Almighty God, Yahweh, YHVH, El Shaddai, you have many names explaining your attributes. You are the one true God above all, ruler of all kings and principalities. There is no one like you. False teachers make their way through your people, secretly bringing untruth and lies, even denying the Jesus who bled for their sake, persecuting His followers. They bring swift destruction to your church. Go after the false teachers, Father, like you went after Saul. Give them a road to Damascus experience. Let them be blinded by the glory and majesty of your Son. Allow them to see Him as He is. Take the scales from their eyes. Turn them to your purpose and use them to build your church, and to glorify you. Choose them in the same way you chose Paul to carry your name before people, communities and kings. Show them much, even to suffer for the precious and powerful name of Jesus. I ask these things in the authority of your Son, the Christ, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“But the Lord said to him, ‘Go, for he is a chosen instrument of mine to carry my name before the Gentiles and kings and the children of Israel. For I will show him how much he must suffer for the sake of my name.’” (Acts 9:15-16 ESV)
