Prayer for John 13:37

“"Lord," Peter asked, "why can't I follow You now? I will lay down my life for You!"”

Praying through John 13:37

Heavenly Father, thank You for the life, the ministry, and the example of Peter, the apostle who holds such a special place in the hearts of all who have trusted Christ for salvation. Like Peter, sometimes my faith falters and I let you down by relying on my own abilities, instead of trusting in Your sufficient strength. But You are always faithful to forgive my foolishness and return me into fellowship with Yourself, when I confess my faults. I pray that my zeal and love for the Lord Jesus would continue to develop and grow, so that like Peter, I would be bold in my faith and in the power of Your Holy Spirit, I would have the sufficient strength to overcome every difficulty in life. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
