Prayer for Matthew 16:17

“And Jesus responded, "Simon son of Jonah, you are blessed because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father in heaven.”

Heavenly Father, what a blessing it is to confess Jesus Christ as God and Saviour. Thank You for making Yourself known to the children of men and thank You for convicting me of sin, righteousness and judgement, so that with Simon Peter, I too can declare with all the saints, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." Continue to guide me into all truth I pray, and may my life be a testimony to the truth that Christ alone has the words of eternal life - this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
