When Peter makes His profound profession of faith, Jesus is at prayer. Jesus asks Peter who he says Jesus truly is. Jesus knows the answer, so the answer is to help Peter see his part in God’s plan.

What was Jesus praying for when Peter professed his faith? What does God have planned for us today? Am I ready to do what God has in mind.

O gracious God I thank you for the gift of faith. May I put my faith to work today by listening first. Help me to do Your will.
