Luke 22:32 – But I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.
Lord Jesus, your love, compassion and care for me is such a gift. Your knowledge of my needs is so important to me. Sometimes I don’t even know how weak and frail I am. I like to think to myself that I am a bastion of strength and wisdom and knowledge. I think to myself that I am the strong one and the wise one. I think to myself that I would never fall, that I would never have my priorities out of whack. Peter thought that too. He even vowed that he would never deny you. But then, we all know, he did. If Peter fell and denied you, I know it can happen to me. You warned him about. You warned your people, the Israelites about it too. But you did more than offer a word of warning to them and to me, you also pray. You prayed for Peter that he would turn back and then strengthen the other believers. You’re praying for me that I would not fall, that my faith would not fail. You’re praying for me that God would keep me in the truth faith. You’re praying for me that I would be a support and a strengthener for others who believe in me. Jesus, I know I needed. I need it even more when I think that I don’t. Please, keep supporting me with your prayer. Please, keep supporting me with your constant involvement in the affairs of my life. Do whatever it takes so that I will not fall and my faith will not fail. Amen.
