It seems that when Jesus was talking to Peter, He was talking about physically staying awake and keeping watch. However, we are also like Peter in needing to keep watching and praying that we stay awake and committed spiritually. There are many temptations present in the world around us. Even when we have the best of intentions, we sometimes fall asleep or become unaware of our participation in actions or our lack of actions that lure us into sin through temptation. We need to stay awake, connected to God by watching and praying, so we keep our priorities in line with the one and only Truth shown to us by God, the Father, and His Son!
Keep watching and praying so your priorities are in line with God's will!
Thank You for the reminder to always be watching and praying. Help me to remember to talk to You and to listen to Your guidance. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
