"When Jesus had finished speaking he said to Simon, 'Put out into deep water and pay out your nets for a catch.' Simon replied, 'Master, we worked hard all night long and caught nothing, but if you say so I will…'" -Lk. 5:4-5

Dear Friend in Christ,
Simon Peter may have been reluctant to go back out because he was tired from fishing all night. He was discouraged at the lack of a catch, doubting that a carpenter like Jesus knew anything about fishing, yet he did what Jesus asked of him. At times we too may be reluctant to do what the Lord asks of us, yet when we are obedient we can experience amazing results.
Let us pray for the humility to be obedient in spite of our fatigue, discouragement, doubting, impatience, or reluctance, and thank God for persevering with us.
Thank God today for the opportunity to partner with Him in building up His Kingdom here on earth.
Have a blessed Thursday and please send us your prayer intentions.
