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

Are you keeping and protecting your body and life on earth while neglecting your soul and eternal life with Christ?

Is your heart trained to keep the Word of God and reject fables of men?

Do you keep and value the Testimonies of God?

 

DAY # 197

TODAY’S REQUEST:

PRAYING FOR UNDERSTANDING OF THE TIME :

TO KEEP OR TO THROW AWAY

Ecclesiastes 3:6 A time to gain, And a time to lose; A time to keep, And a time to throw away;
Isaiah 31: 4-7 For thus the LORD has spoken to me: "As a lion roars, And a young lion over his prey (When a multitude of shepherds is summoned against him, He will not be afraid of their voice Nor be disturbed by their noise), So the LORD of hosts will come down To fight for Mount Zion and for its hill. 5 Like birds flying about, So will the LORD of hosts defend Jerusalem. Defending, He will also deliver it; Passing over, He will preserve it." 6 Return to Him against whom the children of Israel have deeply revolted. 7 For in that day every man shall throw away his idols of silver and his idols of gold––sin, which your own hands have made for yourselves.
Ezekiel 20:7-11 "Then I said to them, ‘Each of you, throw away the abominations which are before his eyes, and do not defile yourselves with the idols of Egypt. I am the LORD your God.’ 8 "But they rebelled against Me and would not obey Me. They did not all cast away the abominations which were before their eyes, nor did they forsake the idols of Egypt. Then I said, ‘I will pour out My fury on them and fulfill My anger against them in the midst of the land of Egypt.’ 9 "But I acted for My name’s sake, that it should not be profaned before the Gentiles among whom they were, in whose sight I had made Myself known to them, to bring them out of the land of Egypt. 10 "Therefore I made them go out of the land of Egypt and brought them into the wilderness. 11 "And I gave them My statutes and showed them My judgments, ‘which, if a man does, he shall live by them.’
