Peter said, "Lord, if it is really you, then command me to come to you on the water." Jesus said, "Come." And Peter left the boat and walked on the water to Jesus. But when Peter saw the wind and the waves, he became afraid and began to sink. He shouted,"Lord, save me!"
— Matthew 14:28-30 NCV

Today's Prayer

Lord, You can make anything possible. Walking on water is impossible, but YOU did it—and Peter did it, too. Help me to follow Your voice and Your lead wherever You want me to go. Help me to hear Your voice and know it’s You. Help me to have the faith to get out of my own boat and travel the path You have called me to—whatever it is and wherever it goes; even if the world thinks I’m crazy. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
