Luke 22:32 ” But I have prayed for you, Simon Peter, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.”

Jesus knew that Peter would betray Him.  But He also knew that Peter would later seek forgiveness and restoration of their relationship…and in doing so, become a  spiritually stronger man.  Each one of us carry around times when we ourselves failed the Lord miserably, only to have Him mercifully forgive and restore us back to that right relationship with Him.  Those failings  have now become unique teaching opportunities in which we can build up and strengthen others we see wavering.
