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

Does your discontentment in life cause you to complain, covet, and plot evil deeds?

Are you content with what the Lord’s hand gave you in accordance with His will, His righteousness, and His justice?

Do you believe you deserve a better life, should be making more at work, and need much more than you now own?

DAY # 284

TODAY’S REQUEST:

PRAYING FOR A SPIRIT OF CONTENTMENT

Exodus 16:8 Also Moses said, "This shall be seen when the LORD gives you meat to eat in the evening, and in the morning bread to the full; for the LORD hears your complaints which you make against Him. And what are we? Your complaints are not against us but against the LORD."
Luke 3:14 Likewise the soldiers asked him, saying, "And what shall we do?" So he said to them, "Do not intimidate anyone or accuse falsely, and be content with your wages."
1 Timothy 6: 6 Now godliness with contentment is great gain. 7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. 8 And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content. 9 But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
Psalms 90:14 Oh, satisfy us early with Your mercy, That we may rejoice and be glad all our days!
Psalms 145:16 You open Your hand And satisfy the desire of every living thing.
