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

Why not make today the day you die to sin through repentance in order to be born again through faith in Christ?

Have you been born of the Spirit or are you still dead in your flesh?

Has God given you the right to become His child through the new birth and belief in the name of Christ?

 

DAY # 287

PRAYING FOR UNDERSTANDING OF THE TIME:

John 1: 12-14 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
