But I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.— Luke 22:32 (ESV)
At the Last Supper, Jesus predicted that Peter’s faith would falter, that he would deny his relationship with Him. But Jesus also knew that Peter would return to Him. Peter’s story teaches us that when we stumble on our faith journey, it’s not our fall that matters but the fact that we pick ourselves up and continue on His path.
God of fair beginnings, no matter how badly things have gone, You always make it possible for me to start a new beginning.
