The Lawmen judge Jesus

Luke 22: 66-71 CEV

At daybreak the nation's leaders, the chief priests, and the teachers of the Law of Moses got together and brought Jesus before their council. They said, “Tell us! Are you the Messiah?”

Jesus replied, “If I said so, you wouldn't believe me. And if I asked you a question, you wouldn't answer. But from now on, the Son of Man will be seated at the right side of God All-Powerful.”

Then they asked, “Are you the Son of God?”

Jesus answered, “You say I am!”

They replied, “Why do we need more witnesses? He said it himself!”

Wendy's Prayer - “Lord our God, give us the strength to stand on your word when they try to judge us.”

Peter denies Jesus

Matthew 26: 69-75 CEV

While Peter was sitting out in the courtyard, a servant girl came up to him and said, “You were with Jesus from Galilee.”

But in front of everyone Peter said, “That isn’t so! I don’t know what you are talking about!”

When Peter had gone out to the gate, another servant girl saw him and said to some people there, “This man was with Jesus from Nazareth.”

Again Peter denied it, and this time he swore, “I don’t even know that man!”

A little while later some people standing there walked over to Peter and said, “We know that you are one of them. We can tell it because you talk like someone from Galilee.”

Peter began to curse and swear, “I don’t know that man!”

Right then a rooster crowed, and Peter remembered that Jesus had said, “Before a rooster crows, you will say three times that you don’t know me.” Then Peter went out and cried hard.

Wendy's Prayer - “Dedi God, you have given us gifts that we will share when things are hard and also speak in truth.”
