Prayer-a-phrase of John 15:12-17
And Jesus said to all who follow Him:
Here’s what I want you to do:
“Love one another as I love you.”
What kind of love is that?
The greatest love is when
you give your life for your friends.
You are My friends,
and you show this
by doing as I ask.
You’re not enslaved by Me!
A slave has no idea what his master is doing!
But I told you everything I’ve heard from My Father,
because you are My friends.
You didn’t choose Me first,
but I chose You,
and now I’m appointing you
to go and bear fruit for eternity!
Then, whatever you ask the Father in My Name,
He will be able to give you
as you fulfill My command:
Love one another.
