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

Has your heart been transformed by the Holy Spirit so that it no longer incites your feet to run after evil?

Are you consenting with evildoers, supporting thieves, and partaking in the work of adulterers?

Are your thoughts, thoughts of iniquity, ungodliness, deception, and lies?

DAY # 247

TODAY’S REQUEST:

LIVING TO PLEASE GOD:

FOR THE LORD HATES FEET THAT ARE SWIFT IN RUNNING TO EVIL

Psalms 50:16-23 But to the wicked God says: "What right have you to declare My statutes, Or take My covenant in your mouth, 17 Seeing you hate instruction And cast My words behind you? 18 When you saw a thief, you consented with him, And have been a partaker with adulterers. 19 You give your mouth to evil, And your tongue frames deceit. 20 You sit and speak against your brother; You slander your own mother’s son. 21 These things you have done, and I kept silent; You thought that I was altogether like you; But I will rebuke you, And set them in order before your eyes. 22 "Now consider this, you who forget God, Lest I tear you in pieces, And there be none to deliver: 23 Whoever offers praise glorifies Me; And to him who orders his conduct aright I will show the salvation of God."
Proverbs 1:16 For their feet run to evil, And they make haste to shed blood.
Proverbs 6: 16 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.
Isaiah 59:7 Their feet run to evil, And they make haste to shed innocent blood; Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; Wasting and destruction are in their paths.
Jeremiah 9:3 "And like their bow they have bent their tongues for lies. They are not valiant for the truth on the earth. For they proceed from evil to evil, And they do not know Me," says the LORD.
Romans 13:3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same.

HOW DO THE SCRIPTURES TELL US TO EXPRESS THIS REQUEST?

ALWAYS SEEKING GOOD AND NEVER EVIL

Proverbs 31:10-12 Who can find a virtuous wife? For her worth is far above rubies. 11 The heart of her husband safely trusts her; So he will have no lack of gain. 12 She does him good and not evil All the days of her life.
Amos 5:14 Seek good and not evil, That you may live; So the LORD God of hosts will be with you, As you have spoken.
Malachi 1:8 And when you offer the blind as a sacrifice, Is it not evil? And when you offer the lame and sick, Is it not evil? Offer it then to your governor! Would he be pleased with you? Would he accept you favorably?" Says the LORD of hosts.
