WEEK 5: Practicing prayer partnership
Read John 16:19-24
Prayerfully re-read this passage. What stands out to you from these words?
In the context of Jesus offering farewell instructions to his disciples (just before the cross) he tells them to approach the Father with their requests. Today, of course, is Friday. Perhaps every Friday we should remember that he died and remember why he died. He died in order for us to have access to the Father. What a tremendous privilege prayer really is.
Jesus instructs us to ask “in my name.” Take some time to list several names for Jesus. How important is it to pray “in Jesus’ name”? Why?
Pray with your prayer partner today.
If you would ask anything of Jesus today, what would it be? If Jesus would ask anything of you today, what would it be?
Ask someone in your family how you can pray for them today and take some time to do that “on the spot” with them.
