After Jesus fed 5000 men, not counting the women and children, the people seeing this great miracle were talking among themselves saying, "This is the prophet Moses told us about who was to come into the world!" Jesus realized they were ready to come and carry him off to try and make him king, so he told his disciples to take the boat back across the lake to Capernaum and he went to the hills by himself.
It was evening when Jesus' disciples went down to the lake, got into the boat, and started back across the lake. A strong wind had come up stirring up the waves and pushing the boat far out in the lake. The boat was there most of the night, being tossed about and the disciples were straining to row the boat against the wind. It was still dark and in the early hours of the morning. They had rowed about three or four miles when they saw Jesus walking on the water coming near the boat, and they were terrified. "It's a ghost!" they said, and screamed with fear.
Jesus spoke to them at once. "Courage!" he said. "It is I. Don't be afraid!" Then Peter spoke up. "Lord, if it is really you, order me to come out on the water to you."
"Come!" answered Jesus. So Peter got out of the boat and started walking on the water to Jesus. But when he noticed the strong wind, he was afraid and started to sink down in the water. "Save me, Lord!" he cried.
At once Jesus reached out and grabbed hold of him and said, "What little faith you have! Why did you doubt?"
They both got into the boat, the wind died down, and immediately the boat reached land at the place they were heading for. Then the disciples in the boat worshiped Jesus. "Truly you are the Son of God!" they exclaimed.

are good for support and prayer like Wisdom, Job, Psalms,
and Proverbs. They take you away from the story.

Have you ever wondered if there is a God? One who is responsible for the creation of the universe and all living things.
These are some of the stories of easy salvation.
No speaking in tongues, no being baptised with water,
just turn away from your sinful life, and believe that GOD The Father
sent his son JESUS to die on a cross and take all YOUR SINS away.
'For GOD loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not die but have eternal life.'
This is a beautiful prayer at anytime of the day or for those gathered at your table for a meal.
Lord, I have come to you for protection;
never let me be defeated!
Because you are righteous,
help me and rescue me,
Listen to me and save me!
There will be terrible times in the last days.
People will be lovers ....
"My children, when you come to serve
the Lord, prepare yourself for trials."
( A reading from “The Wisdom Of Sirach” )
