Praying from Matthew 17:27. Themes: Provision, Obedience, Faith
Dear Lord, help us to always be mindful of those around us and to not cause them to stumble. Guide us to find solutions that bring peace and unity. Just as you provided for Peter and Jesus with the stater coin, we ask that you provide for us in our time of need. May we always be willing to give generously and selflessly to those in need. Amen.
Verse: But, lest we cause them to stumble, go to the sea, cast a hook, and take up the first fish that comes up. When you have opened its mouth, you will find a stater coin. Take that, and give it to them for me and you.”
This is a Command. The reader is instructed to go to the sea, catch a fish, and use the coin found in its mouth to pay for something on behalf of Jesus and themselves.
