Sunday, (Jan 28) – Pray that we will repent of the many times when we have put our own priorities ahead of God’s priorities for our lives.

Pray that He will empower us to follow in His steps as we keep our eyes fixed on Him. Pray that when we are tempted to be lukewarm for Jesus and His ways, the Holy Spirit will enflame our lives for more and more of Him.
