Day 1: Nearness



Come near to God and He will come near to you.



“Heavenly Father, You have promised that if I draw near to You, You will draw near to me. I need more of Your presence today, and I am drawing near to You through prayer, worship, and reading Your Word. I open my heart to You and ask You to be near to me and change me to be more like You.”



When you decide to set aside time to pray, do these four steps:

1) Pause. Turn off distractions, notifications, and find a quiet spot to focus for the next few minutes.

2) Listen. Read the Scripture, use the provided prayer, or make up your own, but use this time to hear from God. What is standing out to you? What is God saying to you?

3) Obey. Based on your prayer time, what is God inviting you to do? How can you obey? Come up with something specific (small and simple is great)

4) Share. Who does God want you to share this with? Share with them what stood out to you from today, or share with them whatever God put on your heart.
