Thursday 18th Ord I
A Pilgrim's Daily Prayer
Called through the Word to the everlasting journey in the Spirit
from nothingness to union with the One who is the Beginning and the End

Thursday of the Eighteenth week in Ordinary Time: Peter’s Ministry of Faith
‘And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it (NRSV, Matthew 16:18).’
Let us pray,
Father, it was Peter who denied Jesus, yet after his conversion Peter’s faith became the rock on which the Church is built. May we too, all of us, undergo conversion and a strengthening in faith that we as well may be strength and rock for one another.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
