Intro Prayer: “Jesus, please help me in this time to be fully present to You and to myself that I may commune with You for the sake of your glory and the world around me.”
Silence: In this time, try and become silent before the Lord both internally and externally for 5 minutes. If your mind wanders, gently bring it back to stillness.
Praise: Bless the Lord by declaring these truths about Him!
“You are the light of the world and the Lord of all Lords. You are the lover of my soul and you draw near to the lowly of heart. You are the best leader and being with you is where I find life. You are the Lion of the tribe of Judah and you listen to my prayers.”
Devotional: It’s one thing for Jesus to be a friend to us, but how can we be friends to him? Reflecting on how can I be a friend of Jesus has been one of the most powerful motivators for change and growth in my life. In today’s Scripture, Jesus gives us insight into how we are his friends: we obey his commands. Obedience motivated by love is the way we demonstrate friendship to Jesus.
Scripture: Read today’s text slowly. Feed your spirit on the words. Your goal in this time is to commune with Jesus through His Word. Take note as you sense His Presence.
John 15.14 You are my friends if you do what I command.
Worship: Worship forms the truths of Scripture deep within our lives. This week we will be worshipping to the song Friend of God and letting that truth shape our lives.
Listen: Take time to listen to the Holy Spirit. Write down anything you sense the Lord speaking.
Obedience: What from today is the Lord calling you to put in practice? Could be to pray for someone, to call someone, to serve someone etc.
