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

Are you and those of your household walking with Christ by living a life of obedience before God?

What is predominant in your life and that of those of your household, is it television, movies, sporting events, friends, games, parties, or the Written and Living word of God?

Are you and those of your household serving the gods of this world; are you worshiping yourselves while confusing your foolish pride with true humility?

 

DAY # 71

TODAY’S REQUEST:

PRAYING THAT WE AND THOSE OF OUR HOUSEHOLD CONTINUALLY SEEK THE LORD, UPHOLD HIS JUSTICE, SEEK RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND HUMILITY

Joshua 24:15 "And if it seems evil to you to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."

John 4:53 So the father knew that it was at the same hour in which Jesus said to him, "Your son lives." And he himself believed, and his whole household.

Acts 11:13 "And he told us how he had seen an angel standing in his house, who said to him, ‘Send men to Joppa, and call for Simon whose surname is Peter, 14 ‘who will tell you words by which you and all your household will be saved.’

Deuteronomy 4:29 "But from there you will seek the LORD your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.

 

HOW DO THE SCRIPTURES TELL US TO EXPRESS THIS REQUEST?

ON OUR KNEES - IN OUR TALK - AND IN OUR WALK

Zephaniah 2:3 Seek the LORD, all you meek of the earth, Who have upheld His justice. Seek righteousness, seek humility. It may be that you will be hidden In the day of the LORD’S anger.

Genesis 7:1 Then the LORD said to Noah, "Come into the ark, you and all your household, because I have seen that you are righteous before Me in this generation.

Acts 16:30-34 And he brought them out and said, "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?" 31 So they said, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household." 32 Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all who were in his house. 33 And he took them the same hour of the night and washed their stripes. And immediately he and all his family were baptized. 34 Now when he had brought them into his house, he set food before them; and he rejoiced, having believed in God with all his household.
