Prayer Challenge - Week 3
Confession of Peter
January 21- January 27
This final week of our Prayer Challenge we will be reflecting on the powerful story of The Confession of Peter. Jesus asks Peter, “Who do you say that I am?” To which Peter responds, “You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God.” Jesus’ true identity is revealed through Simon Peter’s confession. This week provides us with an opportunity to consider how we answer that question and what transformation of mind, heart and life is Christ asking of us?
Below are the five Spiritual Practices for this week and the two Bonus Challenges. Please click on the appropriate link for the day. Once you have completed your prayer time, there is a list of reflection questions for you to consider. You are invited to then provide written comments in the Comment section below about your experience. Please feel free to share with the group whatever seems relevant to you.
A meditative reading of scripture that opens the text to hear how God is speaking to us through God’s Holy Word.
A Jesuit prayer of reflection on your day in order to see God in each moment.
A means to reflect how God is speaking to us through spiritual writing.
An encountering of God through a sacred visual image.
An opportunity to invite God into our inner silence and to sit with the Divine.
These two days are your opportunity to choose your own Spiritual Practice for the day.
