1 Timothy 5:1-11

1Rebuke not an elder, but intreat him as a father; and the younger men as brethren;

2The elder women as mothers; the younger as sisters, with all purity.

3Honour widows that are widows indeed.

4But if any widow have children or nephews, let them learn first to shew piety at home, and to requite their parents: for that is good and acceptable before God.

5Now she that is a widow indeed, and desolate, trusteth in God, and continueth in supplications and prayers night and day.

6But she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth.

7And these things give in charge, that they may be blameless.

8But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.

9Let not a widow be taken into the number under threescore years old, having been the wife of one man,

10Well reported of for good works; if she have brought up children, if she have lodged strangers, if she have washed the saints' feet, if she have relieved the afflicted, if she have diligently followed every good work.

11But the younger widows refuse: for when they have begun to wax wanton against Christ, they will marry;

Prayer of the Day

5 Reasons to Pray

Many times we complain that we do not know how to pray or why to pray. There are many reasons to approach God in prayer. But I would like to share with you this note about prayer.



1) To seek the face of the Lord and to know Him better (Psalm 27:8).

Psalm 27:8: When thou saidst, Seek ye my face, my heart hath answered thy face, Lord I will seek.

2) To remove your eyes from your problems and place them in the Lord (Psalm 121:1).

Psalm 121:1: I will lift up mine eyes unto the mountains; Where does my help come from?.

3) To speak with God (1 Peter 3:12).

1 Peter 3:12: For the eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are attentive to his prayers; But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil

4) To remove the burdens of your heart (Psalm 142:1-2)

Psalm 142:1-2:

1- I cry to the Lord with my voice; With my voice I beg the Lord.

2 - In front of him I expose my complaint; In his manifest presence my anguish.

5) That your petitions may be known by God (Matthew 21:22).

Matthew 21:22: And whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
