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

Wouldn’t you want to make what’s crooked, straight and what’s wrong, right in your life?

Is the righteous life of Christ Jesus the mold you use to shape your way of life?

Is it your utmost desire to please God and glorify His name in the way you live?
