Welcome to your Sunday morning worship from St. George’s.
I have some suggested hymns or a song you can sing along with before and/or after if you choose.
Here is one you could start with, “Eternal Father, strong to save.”
Here is our Gospel reading for this morning. It is Matthew 14:22-33.
Immediately he made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds. And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone, but by this time the boat, battered by the waves, was far from the land, for the wind was against them. And early in the morning he came walking toward them on the sea. But when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were terrified, saying, “It is a ghost!” And they cried out in fear. But immediately Jesus spoke to them and said, “Take heart, it is I; do not be afraid.”
Peter answered him, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.” He said, “Come.” So Peter got out of the boat, started walking on the water, and came toward Jesus. But when he noticed the strong wind, he became frightened, and beginning to sink, he cried out, “Lord, save me!” Jesus immediately reached out his hand and caught him, saying to him, “You of little faith, why did you doubt?” When they got into the boat, the wind ceased. And those in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.” 1
Here is your Sunday prayers and Message.
Here is one traditional or one contemporary song you could end with. “Guide me O Thou Great Jehovah”
Or this beautiful contemporary song, that is a favourite for some, “Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)”
I hope you have a blessed week and your faith helps you to keep your head above the water!
Be Well and God Bless.
The Rev’d Canon Rob Park
