Praying from Matthew 16:13. Themes: Identity, Christology, Confession
Dear Lord Jesus, as you came into the parts of Caesarea Philippi, you asked your disciples who people thought you were. Today, I come to you with the same question in my heart. Who do I say you are? You are the Son of Man, the Savior of the world, the King of kings, and the Lord of lords. You are my Redeemer, my Friend, my Comforter, and my Guide. You are the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last. You are the Way, the Truth, and the Life. You are the Light of the world, the Bread of Life, and the Living Water. You are everything to me, Lord Jesus. I thank you for your love, your grace, and your mercy. I pray that I may always know you more and more each day and that I may follow you all the days of my life. In your precious name, I pray. Amen.
Verse: Now when Jesus came into the parts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying,“Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?”
This is a Command. The reader is commanded to consider who they believe Jesus to be.
