John 18:1-18 If God is actually much more willing and able to give good things to us than parents are to give good things to their children, then all possibility of doubt or anxiety as to our prayers being answered must vanish forever. In light of our reading ponder the nature of Peter’s self deception regarding his commitment to follow Jesus. Ask God for the grace to confront your own self-deceptions. Open your heart wise to His gaze.
