Prayers XVII

Mat 26-27
There are many similarities between Judas and Peter. Both of them let them down Jesus. Yet there are also crucial differences between the two men. Peter responded to failure in the right way. Judas did not. As Paul writes, ‘Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death’ (2 Corinthians 7:10).
Let us respond as Peter did and we can have a great future ahead of us in the service of Jesus.

Lord, thank you that you were bound in order to liberate me from my sins, guilt, shame, addictions, fears and failures. When I fail, help me always to turn back to you in ‘godly sorrow… that leads to salvation and leaves no regret’.
