Feast of Peter & Paul, Apostles
You are Peter, and on this rock, I will build my church. —Matthew 16:18a
George Herbert expresses our thought eloquently:
Thou who hast given so much to me, give one thing more, a grateful heart.
Not thankful when it pleases me, as though thy blessing had spare days;
But such a heart whose pulse may be, thy praise. —Robert Llewelyn, Why Pray?
Prayer of the Day
Jesus, Peter and Paul made choices to either deny you or persecute those who followed you, and in your love and mercy you forgave them both! Help me turn to you when I also make choices that I regret, and in turning to you find forgiveness and conviction to walk with you once more. Amen.
