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

How zealous is your heart to serving God, to studying His word, and announcing His gospel to the lost?

Why does this generation view fanatics of all things as being sane, but only fanatics of Christ as nuts?

In what direction does the zeal of your heart lead you; is it to make money, to entertain yourself, fulfill your fleshly desires, or to live a life seeking to please God?

FOR A ZEALOUS HEART, WHOLLY DEVOTED TO GOD
