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

Besides the Gospel of Christ and the daily addition by the Lord to His Church, the time is for mourning; so, why are you dancing?

As a believer in Christ, are you mourning for this “beyond-all-borders” immoral, ungodly, rebellious, and abominable generation?

Are you dancing on your way to the lake of fire, or mourning and praying for those who know not the Lord?
