A YEAR IN PRAYER    "Using God's Word to pray"

Are you a proud member of this “speed-craving” generation for whom patience is a foreign word?

Do you find yourself reacting impatiently before a microwave, in an elevator, or in an airplane?

Lack of patience leads often to loss of faith; do you wait on the Lord and hope on His revealed Word?
