Praying the Bible ~ Matthew 16:13-16

Praying through verses or passages of the Bible is a great way to help you pray according to the will and desires of God. Below is a passage of Scripture and a sample prayer. I would encourage you to pray that prayer, or, even better, read the passage and pray as God leads you.

Text: Matthew 16:13-16
When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others, Elijah; still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” “But you,” he asked them, “Who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”  (Christian Standard Bible)

Father, the world today still wonders who Jesus is. Some say a great teacher. Others say a prophet. Still others say a myth in the imagination of history. By faith, though, we answer like Peter. Jesus is the Messiah, your Son, our Savior. Help us to know Jesus for all he is and all you have done through him. Help us to not lose sight of your glory shining brightly through him. Help our imaginations soar with high thoughts of the reality of our Savior-King.  Amen.
