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

Do you place your trust in the false hope and empty promises of religions and their traditions?

What concerns you the most, temporary life on earth or eternal life in Christ?

In whom or on what you place your faith for the eternal destination of your soul?

DAY # 236

TODAY’S REQUEST:

FOR FAITH IN GOD:

IN CHRIST ALONE IS ETERNAL LIFE

 

John 17: 1-3 Jesus spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said: "Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You, 2 "as You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as You have given Him. 3 "And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.
Romans 6:20-23 For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness.
21 What fruit did you have then in the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. 22 But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life. 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
John 10:26-30 "But you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep, as I said to you. 27 "My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. 28 "And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. 29 "My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. 30 "I and My Father are one."
