September 13 – Noon


The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my sheep.

(John 21:17)


Dear God,

You know all things, including the depths of my heart and the sincerity of my love for You. Just as You asked Peter three times if he loved You, I want to declare to You that I love You with all my being. Help me to not only profess my love for You with my words, but to also show it through my actions and obedience to Your will. Give me the strength and courage to follow You wholeheartedly and to serve You faithfully all the days of my life.

Please forgive me for the times when I have failed to love You as I should, and for the moments when I have denied You through my actions or words. I pray that You would fill me with Your love and grace, so that I can be a shining reflection of Your love to those around me. Thank You for loving me unconditionally and for always welcoming me back into Your loving arms. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
