Praying through 1 John

Praying through 1 John

Father God, today I am thankful that what was from the beginning, what the Apostles
heard and saw with their eyes and what they touched with their hands concerning the
Word of Life that was manifested to them. They saw, testified and proclaimed then and
now through Your written Word the eternal life, which was with You and made manifest
to them.

Father, I am thankful that what they saw and heard, they proclaimed to all who would
believe, so that I as a believer would have fellowship along with them. I thank You for
this fellowship I now have with You and Your Son, Jesus Christ. I thank You that all
these things were written so that my joy may be made complete. The joy of the Lord is
my strength!
Father, God of light whom no darkness dwells at all, keep me in fellowship with You. Let
me not walk in darkness. Keep me from living a lie by not practicing the truth. Help me
to walk in Your light and have fellowship with my brothers and sisters who do the same.
Thank You that when I do this, the blood of Jesus cleanses me from all sin.
Father, I confess that I have sinned and fallen short of Your glory and I ask for Your
forgiveness in Jesus. I thank You that Jesus was, is and always will be my faithful and
righteous Savior and You forgive me of all my sins and cleanse me of all my
unrighteousness because of His perfect obedience and sacrifice on the cross. Father let
me not to ever get self righteous and prideful nor be deceived into thinking that I have
not sinned. I know that those that do this make You out to be a liar and Your word is not
in them. Father deliver me from a religious, hypocritical and self righteous spirit!
Chapter 2
Father, I thank You that these things are written so that I may not sin. But when I do sin,
I have an Advocate with You, Father, Jesus Christ the righteous, and He Himself is the
propitiation for my sin, and not only mine but also for those of the whole world!
Father God, I know that I have come to know You when I keep Your commandments
and if I say, “I know You”, but don’t keep Your commandments, I become a liar and the
truth is not in me. Father I will keep Your Word in my heart that I may be a doer of Your
word that Your love would truly be perfected in me. Oh Father, keep me in Your perfect
love, cast me not away from Your presence, take not Your Holy Spirit from me, restore
to me the joy of Your salvation and renew a right spirit within me! Oh God! Help me to
abide and walk in the same manner as Jesus walked- Amen!
Father, help me to obey Your commandment in Your Word which is true in You and is
now in me because the true light is already shining. Help me to love my brothers and
sisters and reject the darkness by not having any hatred toward them. Grant me Your
power to love them that I may abide in Your light and have no cause for stumbling.
Open my eyes Lord, don’t let me be blinded by any darkness. Search my heart oh God,
and see if there be any root of bitterness, hatred, or any form of wickedness, Father,
forgive me, deliver me, and lead me in the way of everlasting life!

Father, as Your child, I thank You that my sins have been forgiven and I know You, that
You are from the beginning, that I have overcome the evil one, that I am strong and Your
Word abides in me!
Father, remove and deliver me from the love of the world and all that is in the world, the
lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life. I know this is not of
You and is from the world and the world is passing away. I want to do Your will and live
forever! Help me to know and obey Your will oh God!
Father, Thank You for Your promise of eternal life You have made to me and all the
Saints. Lord, help me to not be deceived about these things by anybody and to rely
upon the Holy Spirit’s anointing that I have received from You. I realize that I have no
need for anyone to teach me because His anointing teaches me about all things and is
true and is not a lie. Holy Spirit, teach me, guide me into all truth, reveal Jesus to me.
Father, Help me to abide in Your Son, Jesus as I have been taught to by His anointing
so that when He appears, I may have confidence and not shrink away from Him in
shame at His coming. I know that He is righteous and everyone who practices
righteousness is born of Him! Oh God, I want to bear the fruits of righteousness!
Father, You have bestowed Your great love on me that I would be called Your child and
that is what I am! I thank You that when Jesus appears I shall be like Him and see Him
just as He is! Father, I fix my hope on Him and want to purify myself just as He is pure!
Lord, refine me in Your fire, make me pure and holy!
Father, keep me from willful and presumptuous sins because I know that sin is
lawlessness. I know that Jesus appeared in order to take away my sins and in Him
there is no sin. Help me to abide in Him that I may not sin. Help me not to be deceived
and to know that the one who practices righteousness, is righteous just as He is
righteous and the one who practices sin is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the
Father, I thank You that Jesus, Your Son, appeared for the purpose of destroying the
works of the devil. I thank You that I am born of You, oh God, and I don’t practice nor
can I abide in sin because Your seed abides in me. And it is by this that Your children
and the children of the devil are made obvious; Oh Father help me to practice
righteousness and to love my brother! I don’t want to be as Cain who was of the evil one
and slew his brother because his deeds were evil and his brothers were righteous.
Father, deliver me from any form of envy and jealousy! Remove from me any
covetousness or greediness! Take away all bitterness and hatred from my heart,
Forgive me of these things and deliver me from this evil!
Lord, Help me not to be so surprised if the world hates me, help me to always
remember that I have passed out of death and into life because I love the brethren.

Father, You said that everyone who hates his brother is a murderer and that no
murderer has eternal life abiding in him. I have come to know life by what Jesus did
when He laid down His life for me and so help me now to do the same for the brethren.
Father, help me to use the worlds goods which You have blessed me with to help my
brother when I see him in need. Help me not to close my heart against him. Let me not
love with word or with tongue but instead, in deed and truth! Oh God, I want Your love to
abide in me!
Father, I know that living my life in deed and truth proves that I am of the truth and when
I do, my heart will be assured before You and in whatever my heart condemns me, You
are greater than my heart and You know all things.
Father, I thank You that if my heart does not condemn me, I have confidence before You
and whatever I ask I will receive from You because I keep Your commandments and do
the things that are pleasing in Your sight. Oh God, I trust in You and I ask for the
strength and power to obey You and do the things that are pleasing to You!
Father, I believe in Your Son, Jesus Christ and strive to love my brothers and sisters as
He has commanded me to do. I know that when I keep Your commandments, I abide in
Him and He in me and I know He abides in me by the Holy Spirit whom You have given
Chapter 4
Father, I will not believe every spirit, but instead I will test the spirits to see if they are
from You because many false prophets have gone out into the world. You said that I
would know Your Spirit by this; that every spirit that confesses that Jesus has come in
the flesh is from You, oh God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from
You, but is the spirit of the antichrist that is coming and is already in the world.
Father, I am from You, oh God, and You are greater in me than he who is in the world. I
thank You that I have overcome the world! Thank You Father that I am from You. Those
that listen to us know You and those that don’t listen to us, do not not know You. By this
I know the spirit of truth from the spirit of error.
Father, love comes from You because You are love. I know that everyone who loves is
born of You and knows You. Help me to Love others like You do oh, Lord!
Father, thank You that Your love was manifested in me when You sent Your only
begotten Son into this world so that I might live through Him. I thank You, Father, that in
this is love, You sent Your Son to be the propitiation for my sins! You did this not
because I loved You, but that You first loved me! You are the greatest lover of my soul
and I thank You that I was made in Your image! Help me to understand the depth, width,
height and breath of Your love for me oh, Lord!

Father, because You so love me, help me now to love others in the same way. I know
that no one has seen You at any time but if I love others, and especially my brothers
and sisters, You truly abide in me and Your love is perfected in me! Fill my heart with
more of Your Love, help me to be a loving person!
Father, I know that I abide in Your Son Jesus and He in me because You have given me
Your Holy Spirit and I testify that You have sent Your Son to be the Savior of the world! –
Father, I confess that Jesus is Your Son and I thank You that You abide in me and I in
You. I have come to know and believe the love that You have for me. I want to abide in
this love because I know that You are this love and when I abide in Your love then I
abide in You and You in me!
By this, Father, Your love is perfected in me so that I may have confidence in the day of
judgment because as You are, so am I in this world! I thank You that there is no fear in
love and Your perfect love casts out all fear! Fear involves punishment, and when I fear,
I am not perfected in love. I will love because You first loved me! Help me oh God, not to
say that I love You and have hate for my brother, for when I do this, I become a liar. If I
do not love my brother who I see, I cannot love You, God, whom I have not seen. Help
me to keep Your commandment to love You with all my heart and to love my neighbor
as myself. Forgive me when I fail to do this oh Lord!
Chapter 5
Father, I believe that Jesus is the Christ and because of this I am born of You oh God
and I love the children that are born of You. I know that loving You and keeping Your
commandments proves that I love Your children as well. I am thankful that Your
commandments are not burdensome and that I am born of You. I thank You Father that
the victory that has overcome the world is my faith. Increase my faith oh Lord!
Father I thank You that I am an overcomer because I believe that Jesus is the Son of
God and that He came by water and blood and Your Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth
testifies to this. Father I come into alignment and agreement with the testimony of the
Spirit and the water and the blood and I receive Your testimony that You have given
concerning Your Son. I thank You that You have given me eternal life in Your Son and
that I have life in Him.
Father, I thank You for Your written Word that gives me the confidence in knowing that I
have eternal life because I believe in the Name of Your Son. I thank You for the
confidence that I now have before You. And this confidence enables me to ask anything
according to Your will and I know that You hear me and in whatever I ask, I know that I
have the requests that I have asked from You. Thank you for this undeserved favor oh
Lord, help me to ask for the things that are according to You will!

Father, help me to discern when I see a brother committing a sin that is not leading to
death that I may intercede for him so that You will grant him life. Lord, I am aware that
there is a sin that leads to death and that I shouldn’t make a request for this. Help me
Lord to discern the difference,I know that all unrighteousness is sin, and there is a sin
not leading to death. Help me to understand this in You wisdom and knowledge oh God.
Father, I thank You that because I am born of You, I am no longer a slave to sin nor am I
under the power of the evil one and he cannot touch me because You are able to keep
I know that I am of You, Oh God, and I know that the whole world lies in the power of
the evil one. I know that the Son of God has come and has given me understanding so
that I may know Him who is true. I believe in my heart and confess with my mouth that
Jesus Christ is the true God and eternal life! AMEN! HALLELUJAH!
Father, help me to guard my heart and keep myself from idols. Lord, forgive me and
deliver me from idolatry – AMEN!
