21 Days of Prayer Devotional
Day 15
Brandon McKenzie / John 13


One of them, the disciple whom Jesus loved, was reclining next to Him (Jesus). (Jn. 13:23 NIV)

Thought for the day

Brandon shares that taking time to simply be with Jesus in a posture of rest can give us endurance and allow us to receive more of His word. John was the only one who didn’t fully abandon Jesus at the cross and He was the longest living disciple. He also received the revelation of the last days and gave us the book of Revelation. Let us be more like John and recline on the Lord in prayer as much as possible.

Questions to ponder

-Do you struggle with simply being with the Lord without an agenda? Take time to ask the Lord to help you with this.

-Do you see yourself as “the one who Jesus loves?”

-When today can you get alone with Jesus? What can you do to put away distractions that you may simply be with Him?



My first encounter with Take the City was going to Wilson Apartments in Columbus GA. We were met by a man from that neighborhood who prayed with us before we began the outreach. We set up an area for the kids to play and others went door to door witnessing and praying for people. It truly was a humbling experience. Another time I got to pray at an abortion clinic which was another humbling experience. The worship services the night before are always dynamic and spirit led. However I will conclude with the best part for me was being an eight week participant of Take the City boot camp. All of the leaders were simply AWESOME and I learned so much during those eight weeks. I thank God for all these wonderful opportunities!
