21 Days of Prayer – Watch JesusNovember 14, 2021
We don’t have to face difficult times alone.
Jesus surrounded Himself with friends at the last supper, and He invited them to join him in Gethsemane while He prayed (Matthew 26:36-46).
We can turn to our heavenly Father.
God wants to hear from His children. He is full of mercy, and in Jesus, we have a mediator who empathizes with us (Hebrews 4:14-16).
We can be honest with God.
Jesus tells His disciples that His soul is overwhelmed, and He is just as candid when crying out to God. He asks Him to take this cup from Him (Mark 14:34).
We can trust His plan.
Even after asking God to take away His certain death, Jesus trusts God’s plan in the cross. He submits to His will and authority in His life (Mark 14:36). No matter what circumstances we find ourselves in, regardless of our fear or uncertainty, we can look to Jesus and follow the example He set.
Recognize Jesus has called you.
Jesus gave out nicknames. He has a name or a calling for you too. Sometimes they don’t make sense… but as we grow closer to Him, we have clarity.
Before he called them to DO for Him, He called them to be with Him.
