O God, the Almighty and gracious Father,
thank you for judging me with grace,
empowering me with your Spirit,
and calling me to a wonderfully unique life in your service.
Forgive me for the times I’ve been envious of other believers.
Forgive me for comparing my faith with others,
whose hearts I could not know.
Focus me on your will and lead me to you
so that the glory that others see in me
is attributed to your grace and presence in my life.
In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
Phil Ware, online outreach minister
Peter turned and saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following them, the one who also had leaned back against him during the supper and had said, “Lord, who is it that is going to betray you?” When Peter saw him, he said to Jesus, “Lord, what about this man?” Jesus said to him, “If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you? You follow me!”
