PetericonToday in the church calander, we celebrate the confession of   Peter found in Matthew 16:13-19.  It’s a good time to remember that Christ is the foundation of the church, the Head of it all.  That He must and should be our main concern.  Today we pray,

Almighty Father, who inspired Simon Peter, first among the apostles, to confess Jesus as Messiah and Son of the Living God: Keep your Church steadfast upon the rock of this faith, that in unity and peace we may proclaim the one truth and follow the one Lord, our Savior Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

Here are the scriptures for the day:

Psalm 23;
Acts 4:8-13;
1 Peter 5:1-4;
Matthew 16:13-19
