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

Are you hearing the voice of God and listening to His call to repent of your sins?

Are you giving more access to your ears to people or things rather than to God?

Have you been performing somewhat of a selective hearing act with God?

 

DAY # 35

TODAY’S REQUEST:

FOR US TO HAVE EARS TO HEAR

Jeremiah 25:4 "And the LORD has sent to you all His servants the prophets, rising early and sending them, but you have not listened nor inclined your ear to hear.

Ezekiel 12:2 "Son of man, you dwell in the midst of a rebellious house, which has eyes to see but does not see, and ears to hear but does not hear; for they are a rebellious house.

Mark 7:15 "There is nothing that enters a man from outside which can defile him; but the things which come out of him, those are the things that defile a man. 16 "If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear!"

Acts 13:44 On the next Sabbath almost the whole city came together to hear the word of God.

 

HOW DO THE SCRIPTURES TELL US TO EXPRESS THIS REQUEST?

LISTENING TO NO ONE ELSE BUT THE LORD, AND TO NOTHING ELSE BUT HIS WORD

Mark 4:22 "For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light. 23 "If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear."

Luke 10:23 Then He turned to His disciples and said privately, "Blessed are the eyes which see the things you see; 24 "for I tell you that many prophets and kings have desired to see what you see, and have not seen it, and to hear what you hear, and have not heard it."
