I made a mistake with the prayer, and put Easter day's prayer in. Here is today's reflection, with the correct prayer.

Lent day 46


Theme: Deny


John 13:36-38

Simon Peter asked, “Lord, where are you going?”

Jesus answered, “You can’t go with me now, but later on you will.”

Peter asked, “Lord, why can’t I go with you now? I would die for you!”

“Would you really die for me?” Jesus asked. “I tell you for certain that before a rooster crows, you will say three times that you don’t even know me.”

Reflection prompts

  • When have you been in denial?
  • When have you denied others?
  • When have you denied God?


Holy God, Peter denied. I understand why. Being a Christian in this world is not easy. People have assumptions about what I believe, who I am, who I include. I find myself tempted to defend my beliefs, or to downplay how much I long for you. Forgive me, for I am like Peter. I have been ashamed to tell this story. Forgive me, forgive me, forgive me. Amen. —Prayer by Rev. Sarah Are | A Sanctified Art LLC | sanctifiedart.org
