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

Are you tearing down falsehood, idols, and evil desires in your heart?

Has the Lord torn down the old man in you after you repented of your sins and placed your faith in Christ Jesus?

Has Christ sown the cloth of reconciliation between God and you?

HOW DO THE SCRIPTURES TELL US TO EXPRESS THIS REQUEST?

KNOWING IN THE SPIRIT WHAT TO GUARD AND WHAT TO DISCARD

Acts 14:11-17 Now when the people saw what Paul had done, they raised their voices, saying in the Lycaonian language, "The gods have come down to us in the likeness of men!" 12 And Barnabas they called Zeus, and Paul, Hermes, because he was the chief speaker. 13 Then the priest of Zeus, whose temple was in front of their city, brought oxen and garlands to the gates, intending to sacrifice with the multitudes. 14 But when the apostles Barnabas and Paul heard this, they tore their clothes and ran in among the multitude, crying out 15 and saying, "Men, why are you doing these things? We also are men with the same nature as you, and preach to you that you should turn from these useless things to the living God, who made the heaven, the earth, the sea, and all things that are in them, 16 "who in bygone generations allowed all nations to walk in their own ways. 17 "Nevertheless He did not leave Himself without witness, in that He did good, gave us rain from heaven and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness."
Luke 5:36 Then He spoke a parable to them: "No one puts a piece from a new garment on an old one; otherwise the new makes a tear, and also the piece that was taken out of the new does not match the old.
