Matthew 16

Read chapter

Dear God,

thank You for Your Word and for this chapter that reminds me of the importance of having a personal relationship with You and not relying on human understanding alone. Help me to always seek Your guidance and wisdom in all aspects of my life.

Thank You for the promise that the gates of hell will not prevail against Your church. I pray for strength and discernment to stand firm in my faith and to be a light in this dark world.

Please help me to take up my cross daily and follow You, even when it’s challenging or uncomfortable. May I always be willing to die to myself and live for You, allowing Your will to be done in my life.

I ask for the grace to lose my life for Your sake, knowing that in doing so, I will find true life in You.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
