40 Days of Prayer
This devotional series is in conjunction with the current curriculum series all Life and Home Groups are currently going through.
1 Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, 2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. 3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither— whatever they do prospers. 4 Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away. 5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous. 6 For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.
Losing the battle to sin is a gradual process. It starts with listening to wicked counsel. It then progresses to walking in sinful pathways. Finally, the loss is complete when one is seated on their own throne of rebellion and immorality. Conversely, victory over sin begins with heeding wise and righteous counsel leading to pathways of righteousness which ultimately lead to the throne of all righteousness and blessing. Humble yourself in prayer; let victory begin.
