A Prayer Prompted by John 21

Heavenly Father,

We look forward to enjoying eternity in your presence along with the risen Christ. Help us to be mindful that heaven is our real home.

For every way that we have denied Christ we ask your forgiveness. We also ask that, like Peter, we would be restored.  Make us capable of following through on our commitment to Christ regardless of the cost.

Help us also to encourage others in their faith even as Peter was required to feed and tend to Christ’s sheep. As we engage in that ministry of building others up, help us to avoid a competitive or comparing mindset and rather seek to faithfully serve you.

In Christ,
Amen
