Day 14 - 21 Day Fast

Day 14 - Pray for Relationships

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12, Proverbs 27:9, Proverbs 27:17, John 15:13-17

Who would you be without your friends? No, really. Think about it for a second. 

Who are the friends who shaped how you see the world? The ones who helped you decided what was right or wrong. The people you called in a crisis or a break-up. The people who will take your kids for the day or help you move. 

Ecclesiastes reminds us, “Two are better than one...” We need friends who are friends with God to help us find our way. And not only do we need those people, but we also need to be those people for others. 

  • How has your life been made richer or fuller through the relationships God has brought into your life?

  • What’s one area where you know you haven’t been a great friend? 

  • Who was the last person who made you feel fully known? Ask God to continue to grow your existing friendships and/or bring you new ones.   

  • What if what we want for our friends isn’t what God wants for them? Ask God what He wants for you and your friends. Then, sit quietly and wait for Him to speak.

These focused prayers have helped me to get through the past couple of days. When I have felt tempted to just stop, I say the Lord’s Prayer and remind myself of the end goal. I pray that you all are finding your own way to keep going.
