Should ya find yerself amongst congregants determined ter follow the devil rather than the Way, the Truth, and the Light of Life, consider this prayer of repentance for ya and yer crew.

(Yes, we are all guilty of the rampant apostasy that infects the Body of Christ.)

Certain people have crept in unnoticed who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ. (Jude 4)

Lord, we confess that some ungodly folks be among the flock. They they claim ter be yer disciples, but by thar fruit we know ’em ter be filled with rot.

They pervert yer grace and turn it inter a license ter sin in carnal, sensual, ways. Though they claim ter be a disciple of you, by thar actions they deny you, our Lord and Master, Jesus Christ.

Here and now we declare that we be saved by yer grace in order remain pure, clean, and holy—not ter wallow in sin and treat yer sacrifice on the cross as of no cost ter ya. We reject the teaching of those who claim that yer grace be a license ter gratify the lust of the flesh.

Already such folks stand condemned, fer in thar greed these teachers exploit those in the flock with fabricated stories that hold no truth. Thar condemnation hangs over thar heads, and thar destruction ‘ill be swift. (2 Peter 2:3)

Lord, because yer Holy Spirit of Truth stands in opposition ter the spirit of perversity, in the powerful name of Jesus we cast from our midst all spirits that demonstrate a deliberate and obstinate desire ter behave in ways that be unreasonable and unacceptable in yer eyes. Amen and amen.
