But I have pleaded in prayer for you, Simon, that your faith should not fail. So when you have repented and turned to me again, strengthen your brothers.
Luke 22:32 (NLT)
Jesus knew that Peter was going to deny Him. He knew who Peter was. He knew Peter was human and struggled in the same way that you do. So what did Jesus do? He pleaded in prayer for him! He prayed that Peter would not become so discouraged that he would give up. Instead Jesus desired that Peter would repent and turn back to God. And then in renewed faith, Peter would go and help others. This same Jesus comes to you. He knows your life. He knows your struggles and He is pleading in prayer for you. He wants you to repent and turn back to Him. Jesus doesn’t define you by your past, your faults, your weaknesses or your sins. Neither should you! You are deeply loved by God and His death and resurrection has taken away all your sins. This is good news. This is grace. Today believe it, accept it and go strengthen others with God’s grace in the same way He has strengthened you.
Jesus, thank You for pleading in prayer for me. Thank You for Your loving kindness toward me, for Your death and resurrection and Your forgiveness of all my sins. Help me to share this truth with others so they will be strengthened too.
