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

Do you obey the evil desires of your heart, the lusts of your flesh, but resist and rebel against the law of God?

Are you enslaved by sins, obeying every iniquity within you?

Which path are you following, the rebellious ways of Satan leading to eternal damnation, or the obedient path of Christ guaranteeing eternal life?

DESIRING TO PLEASE THE FATHER IN ALL THINGS

1 Peter 1: 13-16 Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; 14 as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance; 15 but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, 16 because it is written, "Be holy, for I am holy."
1 Peter 3:1 Wives, likewise, be submissive to your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the word, they, without a word, may be won by the conduct of their wives,
