Day 11

10 And when he was alone, those around him with the twelve asked him about the parables. 11 And he said to them, “To you has been given the secret of the kingdom of God, but for those outside everything is in parables, 12 so that “‘they may indeed see but not perceive, and may indeed hear but not understand, lest they should turn and be forgiven.’” - Mark 4:10-12

Although Jesus was removed from the crowds, they still wanted to hear more from Him. He responds to their request and gives them more truth regarding His Kingdom.
  1. Welcome God to come in this time and begin by expressing gratitude, praise, and worship. 
  2. We don’t know who besides the disciples were present in this story, but we can assume these people had jobs, families, responsibilities, and needs. However, they took a break from their daily routine and did whatever they could to be with Jesus. During the 21 Days of Prayer we too have been seeking God and pausing from our daily lives because we want to know Him more. Take a moment to recollect and write out what God has been saying to you in this time. How have you sensed God’s release of His Kingdom over your life? Whatever the Holy Spirit brings to mind, thank Him for those specific things. 
  3. If you’re having a difficult time hearing from the Lord or if you’re feeling spiritually “stuck,” take a moment like the disciples and ask the Lord to reveal the secret of His Kingdom to you. 
  4. Close this time by praying, “Lord, I ask for the fresh revelation to not only see what You’re doing in me, others, and the world, but that I would perceive Your Spirit. Give me ears not only to hear You, but also to be able to comprehend and understand what You’re saying to me. Draw me near to You. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.” 
  5. Listen to “Holy Spirit” by Jesus Culture. As you listen, welcome the Lord’s presence not only into this quiet time, but also throughout the day.
