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

Do you humbly bow down in the Lord’s presence, find pleasure in His Word, and rejoice in His worship?

Where do you find your delight, in fleshly and worldly pleasures, or in godly living?

Do you realize that if God is not your delight on earth, you will not be in His presence in heaven?

What daily ritual, act or sacrament are you deceiving yourself with by attributing it the meaning of making the Lord your “delight?”
