Prayer: Lord Jesus, when Peter heard You say “Come,” it was all he needed to get out of the boat and come to You. When the winds came, however, fear gripped him, and he began to sink. Lord, we pray that our faith will never be based on what lies beneath or what’s around us, but in the great I AM. We ask that many will hear You call them at the Celebration of Hope and that they will have the faith to respond in obedience. Keep us from getting distracted with the things around us. May our confidence forever be in You. In Your Name, amen.
