THE BIBLE FOR ANY DAY

God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, that everyone who has faith in him may not perish but have eternal life.

John 3;16

Here I stand knocking at the door; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in and sit down to supper with him and he with Me.

Revelation 3; 20

A PRAYER FOR ANY DAY

Eternal God, our Father above, help me this day to know you better so that day by day I may enter into fullness of living, and as I know life better as it should be and can be, I will come to know you better too.

A PRAYER WHEN TEMPTATION COMES

Almighty God, we know that there are times of temptation when we cannot open up to others but only to Yourself. Receive us as we come: Understand our failings; and

give us your strength: that we may see our way clearly in our minds, may receive

the cleansing power of your forgiveness in our hearts and know the blessed peace of your grace for now and forever.

A PRAYER WHEN IN DOUBT
