WITNESSLINE DEVOTIONAL: DAY ONE

7 days Bible study and prayers

Good evening beloved in Christ. We thank God for his mercies and might in this outgoing month of October. Though it was tough in all aspects yet we are alive hale and hearty. We have more reasons to thank God; we have more reasons to pray not only for what we need at present but most importantly for eternal relevance. What shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his own soul. We pray for success, fuller realization of our faith, divine encounter and testimonies!

Happy New Month
Grace and peace to you in this month of November.

THEME:

THE WAYS OF THE PATRIARCHS

The patriarchs of the Bible, when narrowly defined, are Abraham, his son Isaac, and Isaac’s son Jacob, also named Israel, the ancestor of the Israelites. In the course of our prayers and studies we shall view them beyond this narrow count. But for now, these three figures are referred to collectively as the patriarchs, and the period in which they lived is known as the patriarchal age. They play significant roles in the Old Testament also called the Hebrew scripture. They had immeasurable impart in the New Testament and their ways and example has so much for us in this generation.

*DAY 1 (Abraham)*

Private One hour with God daily. The goal is to guide and teach us to turn from the road of conceit in the face of present day troubles, temptations, spiritual and physical attacks. When we walk with God we are never lost and we are always current, correct and pure. Christians today must look into the scripture and search out their position. Let us seek to have a genuine relationship with God and every other thing shall be added.

_Time: Between 5a.m to 12pm choose your convenient 1hour with God._

Let No Evil Befall Us

O God, You are the preserver of men, and the keeper of
our lives. We commit ourselves to Your perfect care on the
journey that awaits us. We pray for a safe and auspicious
journey. Give Your angels charge over us to keep us in all
our ways. Let no evil befall us, nor any harm come to our
dwelling that we leave behind. Although we are uncertain
of what the days may bring, may we be prepared for any event
or delay, and greet such with patience and understanding.
Bless us O Lord, that we may complete our journey safely
and successfully under Your ever watchful care.
