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

Do you have a special love for the Word of God and spend time studying it to grow in your knowledge of Christ?

Do you rejoice in reading, listening to, and studying the Word of God?

Do your studies exclusively relate to your job and profession, your favorite pastime, but not God’s Word?
