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

Are you asking the Lord for things that are unjust, selfish, ungodly, worldly, lustful, and irrelevant to life eternal?

Do you ask only for things that will fill up your belly, feed your pride of life, and grow your bank account?

What you ask for, is it to spend on your own pleasure or for the Lord to find pleasure in you?

 

DAY # 78

TODAY’S REQUEST:

TO PLACE OUR TRUST IN GOD:

"ASK, AND IT WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU - FOR EVERYONE WHO ASKS RECEIVES"

Matthew 7:7-11 "Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 "For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 9 "Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 "Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11 "If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!

Matthew 18:19 "Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.

Matthew 21:22 "And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive."

Mark 11:24 "Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.

James 1:6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.

James 4:2 You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. Yet you do not have because you do not ask. 3 You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures.
