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

Are you sitting daily in the company of the ungodly scornful and make it your favorite pastime?

Is your entertainment the acting and reacting of the scornful and fools on the small screen?

Are you supporting, defending, walking alongside the mockers, and following their ungodly paths?

 

DAY # 338

TODAY’S REQUEST:

PRAYING THAT WE SIT NOT IN THE SEAT OF THE SCORNFUL

Proverbs 3:34 Surely He scorns the scornful, But gives grace to the humble.
Job 17:2 Are not mockers with me? And does not my eye dwell on their provocation?
Psalms 35:16 With ungodly mockers at feasts They gnashed at me with their teeth.
Jude 1:18 how they told you that there would be mockers in the last time who would walk according to their own ungodly lusts.
2 Peter 3:1 Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder), 2 that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior, 3 knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, 4 and saying, "Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation."

 

HOW DO THE SCRIPTURES TELL US TO EXPRESS THIS REQUEST?
