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

The devil is the father of lies, and all liars are his offspring; is he your daddy?

Can a generation that speaks lies, mutters perversity, and conceives evil expect anything other than condemnation and eternal damnation?

Are you among those who make a living by a lying tongue?

 

DAY # 162

TODAY’S REQUEST:

LIVING TO PLEASE GOD:

FOR THE LORD HATES A LYING TONGUE

Proverbs 6:16-19 These six things the LORD hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: 17 A proud look, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood, 18 A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that are swift in running to evil, 19 A false witness who speaks lies, And one who sows discord among brethren.
Job 13:4 But you forgers of lies, You are all worthless physicians. 5 Oh, that you would be silent, And it would be your wisdom!
Psalms 101:7 He who works deceit shall not dwell within my house; He who tells lies shall not continue in my presence.
Proverbs 12:19 The truthful lip shall be established forever, But a lying tongue is but for a moment.
Proverbs 21:6 Getting treasures by a lying tongue Is the fleeting fantasy of those who seek death.
Proverbs 26:28 A lying tongue hates those who are crushed by it, And a flattering mouth works ruin.
Proverbs 14:25 A true witness delivers souls, But a deceitful witness speaks lies.
Proverbs 19:5 A false witness will not go unpunished, And he who speaks lies will not escape.

 

HOW DO THE SCRIPTURES TELL US TO EXPRESS THIS REQUEST?

DESIRING TO CONTINUE IN THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD

Proverbs 30:8 Remove falsehood and lies far from me; Give me neither poverty nor riches – Feed me with the food allotted to me;
1 Timothy 4:1-3 Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, 2 speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron, 3 forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.
Isaiah 59:1-4 Behold, the LORD’S hand is not shortened, That it cannot save; Nor His ear heavy, That it cannot hear. 2 But your iniquities have separated you from your God; And your sins have hidden His face from you, So that He will not hear. 3 For your hands are defiled with blood, And your fingers with iniquity; Your lips have spoken lies, Your tongue has muttered perversity. 4 No one calls for justice, Nor does any plead for truth. They trust in empty words and speak lies; They conceive evil and bring forth iniquity.
