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

Christ is the Way; those who are not following Him are lost - Are you counted among them?

Do you usually refuse to stop and ask for directions when you are lost?

Just like we use “GPS, Mapquest, GoogleMap” or similar sites to get directions to earthly destinations, wouldn’t it be wise to use the Bible to find the way to the eternal kingdom of God?

 

DAY # 37

TODAY’S REQUEST:

PRAYING FOR THE LOST
