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

Do you take time to walk away from the craziness of this world to meditate on what is praiseworthy?

Can we find anything praiseworthy in the majority of today’s pastime?

How much of your time is spent on learning God’s ways and drawing closer to His holy throne?

 

DAY # 157

TODAY’S REQUEST:

TO MEDITATE ON WHATEVER THINGS ARE PRAISEWORTHY

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy––meditate on these things.
Joshua 1:8 "This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.
1 Timothy 4:13-16 Till I come, give attention to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine. 14 Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership. 15 Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all. 16 Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.

 

HOW DO THE SCRIPTURES TELL US TO EXPRESS THIS REQUEST?
