Praying from Matthew 9:16 relating to Discipleship, Renewal, Incompatibility.
Dear Lord, help me to understand the importance of using the right materials in my life. Just as unshrunk cloth cannot be used to patch an old garment, I pray that I may not try to fix my problems with temporary solutions that will only make things worse. Give me the wisdom to seek out the right tools and resources to address the challenges I face, so that I may build a strong foundation for my future. Help me to trust in your guidance and to have faith that you will provide me with everything I need to succeed. Amen.
Verse: No one puts a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment; for the patch would tear away from the garment, and a worse hole is made.
This is a Command. The verse is instructing the reader not to put a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, as it will cause the patch to tear away and create a worse hole.
