Gospel Sentence
“He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” (Matthew 16:15-16)

Reading
“I give you thanks, O Lord, with my whole heart; before the gods I sing your praise; I bow down toward your holy temple
and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your faithfulness, for you have exalted above all things your name and your word. On the day I called, you answered me; my strength of soul you increased.” (Psalm 138:1-2)

Meditation
God delivers us from all evil. He hears our prayers. He hears our pleas for mercy. God answers our prayers—perhaps not always in the way we desire, but He hears and answers us. Our prayers of thanksgiving acknowledge God as God—as steadfast love and faithfulness. He richly and daily showers us with His steadfast love and faithfulness. Rejoice in this!
