Day 2 | Stay in Touch
How do you stay connected to your best friend? Conversation. We love to talk to the people who love us most. What can you talk to a friend about? Anything! That’s what friends are for. Prayer is conversation with God. And God is the best friend you will ever have. In fact, he chose you to be his friend. He wants to hear from you because he loves you. He cares about every detail of your life. There is nothing too big or too small for his attention. So, go ahead… talk his ear off. God never gets tired of hearing—or answering—your prayers.
I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit—fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.
JOHN 15:15–16 (NIV)
What did you hear?
What did God say to you as you read today’s Bible passage? What word or phrase was most meaningful to you?
What do you think?
What does this passage mean to you? How does it apply to your life?
What is your prayer?
This is where you turn your thoughts into prayer. It could be a prayer of gratitude or praise. It could be a prayer of confession or a request for God’s help. It’s up to you. But take a minute to write a prayer of response to God.
