Sunday, (Jan 7) – Pray that we will choose to turn away from the cravings of the world and the flesh by praying the prayer of the branch, “Lord, live Your life through me.” Pray that we will have the desire to learn to abide in Christ for every moment of our lives, and to abide in His Word so that it becomes part of us. Pray that God will do for us through Christ what we cannot do for ourselves — bear fruit.
