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

Is your expectation to be in the presence of God higher in a building called “church” than it is in your house?

Does the Holy Spirit reside in you, following repentance of your sins and faith in Jesus Christ?

Are you among the superstitious idolaters who travel to places (countries, mountain tops…) with the hope of being in the presence of God?

Because I live, you will live also. 20 "At that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you. 21 "He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me.
