Lenten Prayer: Week 2, Day 5

Presumptuous Friendship: part 1

“The more we experience of the goodness of God, the more we are in danger of the ingratitude that neglects the source of that goodness. In any friendship, human or divine, we need to pause at frequent intervals and ask ourselves if we have allowed favor to make us presumptuous. Without being morbid, we should pause to ask, “What would my life be like without this friendship?” And then, we should seek to celebrate the wonder of friendship with some act of beauty.” Dr. Ellsworth Kalas – “Longing to Pray”

Prayer prompt: Honestly pray over the question, What would my life be like without this friendship with Jesus? Listen carefully for his answer and respond accordingly.
