Building for Eternity Day 12-<i>”Offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God…Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will.” (Romans 12:1) </i>LORD, today we pray that You would help us see things differently and that we would live differently than the world. Transform our priorities, and show us Your perfect will for each of us.
