Lenten Prayer: Week 1, Day 1

In ‘Longing to Pray’ by Dr. Ellsworth Kalas, he writes about the Friendship we need with God. “Some years ago a public opinion survey in a major European country revealed that in that country more people prayed than believed in God, which is to say that people yearn for this friendship even when they resent, question, or deny the Friend.”

John 15:12-15″12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command. 15 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.”

Prompt for Prayer: Take time today to pray for a stronger Friendship with the greatest friend we will ever have.
