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

Do you speak lies to impress men, even though you know that it separates you further from God?

Are you one of those who “thank God” for not having been caught in a lie?

Do you “pray” to God so your lie doesn’t get discovered?

When reaping financial benefits obtained through lying, do you view it as “blessings of God?”

 

DAY # 13

 

TODAY’S REQUEST:

LIVING TO PLEASE GOD:

THE LORD HATES A FALSE WITNESS WHO SPEAKS LIES, AND ONE WHO SOWS DISCORD AMONG BRETHREN

Proverbs 6:16-19 These six things the LORD hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: 17 A proud look, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood, 18 A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that are swift in running to evil, 19 A false witness who speaks lies, And one who sows discord among brethren.

Proverbs 19:5 A false witness will not go unpunished, And he who speaks lies will not escape.

Proverbs 10:18 Whoever hides hatred has lying lips, And whoever spreads slander is a fool.

Proverbs 12:22 Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD, But those who deal truthfully are His delight.

Proverbs 17:7 Excellent speech is not becoming to a fool, Much less lying lips to a prince.

Psalms 31:18 Let the lying lips be put to silence, Which speak insolent things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.

John 8:44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.

HOW DO THE SCRIPTURES TELL US TO EXPRESS THIS REQUEST?

THERE’S NO ESCAPE, NO HOPE, NO SAVATION FOR LYING LIPS

Exodus 20:16 "You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

Matthew 15:19 "For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies.

Romans 13:9 For the commandments, "You shall not commit adultery," "You shall not murder," "You shall not steal," "You shall not bear false witness," "You shall not covet," and if there is any other commandment, are all summed up in this saying, namely, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself."

Proverbs 14:25 A true witness delivers souls, But a deceitful witness speaks lies.

Psalms 120:2 Deliver my soul, O LORD, from lying lips And from a deceitful tongue.
