Memorize and Reflect

[bible]John 17:3[/bible] "Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent."


Prayer Direction

Lift up a prayer of praise for God’s presence and power. Ask God to help his people live and walk in unity. Pray for lost people who are far from Jesus to come to faith in the Savior.


“Live It!” Challenge

Pray with Jesus – Read [bible]John 17[/bible] closely and highlight or write down the main things Jesus focuses on in this powerful prayer. Then, pray for each of these in the coming week.
