  • Week Two: Fruits and Vegetables (Lots of Water)
  • Week Three: Liquids (Lots of Water)
While everyone is encouraged to seek the Lord on how they are too fast, please consider the suggested model of fasting by eating only fruits and vegetables (weeks one and two) and all liquids, meaning 100% fruit and/or vegetable juices (Store bought or by juicing through blender and so forth) and water. (week three). Remember to limit or avoid television, electronics, or any other distraction that may dampen your spiritual focus. For maximum spiritual benefit, set aside ample time to be alone with the Lord and write your thoughts from the daily devotions. Listen for His leading. The more time you spend with Him, the more meaningful your fast will be.

SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON
January 18 - 24, 2021
9:00 a.m.

"Called as the Intercessor"
Background: John 17:14-24

Devotional Reading: 1 Timothy 2:1-7

Keep in Mind
"Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word." 
(John 17:20, KJV)

Aim for Change
By the end of the lesson, we will EXPLORE Jesus' intercessory prayer for His disciples, LONG for Jesus' prayer to be answered more fully in their lives and the church, and PRAY for others and work for unity in the body of Christ.

Focal Verses: John 17:14-24

14 I have given them your word. And the world hates them because they do not belong to the world, just as I do not belong to the world. 
15 I’m not asking you to take them out of the world, but to keep them safe from the evil one. 
16 They do not belong to this world any more than I do. 
17 Make them holy by your truth; teach them your word, which is truth. 
18 Just as you sent me into the world, I am sending them into the world. 
19 And I give myself as a holy sacrifice for them so they can be made holy by your truth.
20 “I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their message.
21 I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me.
22 “I have given them the glory you gave me, so they may be one as we are one. 
23 I am in them and you are in me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me. 
24 Father, I want these whom you have given me to be with me where I am. Then they can see all the glory you gave me because you loved me even before the world began!
