CRY TO GOD

Updated: Jan 6

Exd 2:23-24 And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of Egypt died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up unto God by reason of the bondage. And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.

The Christian clarion duty

Pray with knowledge and understanding. It is said if there is a people to pray, there is a God to answer.

James 4: 2, 3 Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.

Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.


Prayer

Lord, help me in the place of prayer. Let me seek You when You may be found, let me seek and find You in Jesus name.


Good morning all and be blessed as you go today.


God bless you.
