Your Faith Journey 61

Your Faith Journey

Develop as a Disciple – One of the ways we can grow in our relationship with God and become more mature as followers of Jesus is by spending time praying and studying scripture daily. Each day this week, before you read the verses listed below, invite Christ to speak to you through the words of scripture by saying, “Speak, Lord, your servant is listening” (1 Samuel 3:10b).

Monday – Read 1 John 4:7-12 and pray for those closest to you, including family members, friends, co-workers, and neighbors.

Tuesday – Read 1 John 4:13-21 and pray for those who point you towards God (pastors, teachers, small group hosts, mentors, Sunday school teachers, singers/musicians, devotional writers, authors, filmmakers, etc.)

Wednesday – Read 1 Corinthians 13 and pray for those who serve as leaders within our community, state, nation, and world.

Thursday – Read 1 Peter 4:1-11 and pray for those in need locally, nationally, and globally.

Friday – Read John 15:9-12 and pray for yourself.

Saturday – Read John 15:13-17 and rest, enjoy recreation, and reflect upon the past week.
