Jesus Foretells Peter’s Denial

31 “Simon, Simon, behold, Satan demanded to have you,1 that he might sift you like wheat, 32 but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.” 33 Peter2 said to him, “Lord, I am ready to go with you both to prison and to death.” 34 Jesus3 said, “I tell you, Peter, the rooster will not crow this day, until you deny three times that you know me.”

Hymn: TLH 416, st. 1-3: Oh, That the Lord Would Guide My Ways Organ Audio

1. Oh, that the Lord would guide my ways
To keep His statutes still!
Oh, that my God would grant me grace
To know and do His will!

2. Order my footsteps by Thy Word
And make my heart sincere;
Let sin have no dominion, Lord,
But keep my conscience clear.

3. Assist my soul, too apt to stray,
A stricter watch to keep;
And should I e’er forget Thy way,
Restore Thy wandering sheep.
