Building your faith with Prayer.

In Matthew 14:22-36, Jesus finished teaching and told the disciples to take the boat to go to the land of Gad. He sent the multitude away so He could pray. Jesus went up into the mountain to pray. The disciples went in the boat. A storm arose on the sea of Galilee. It took them awhile to grow across the sea. Before dawn Jesus came to them walking on the water. The disciples became afraid and thought it was a Ghost. Jesus called out to them. Peter said, if it’s you, let me come to you. Jesus said, come. Peter got out of the boat and walk on water to Jesus. But when he looked at the waves and wind, he began to sink. Peter called out to Jesus and He saved him. Jesus said, do you have so little faith, why did you doubt? They both got into boat and reach the shore. When people saw and heard it was Jesus, they began to gather. Jesus healed them all. Jesus went up the mountain to pray and build His faith for the task at hand. And show us what to do when we are in need of faith. Prayer opens a direct link to God and will strengthen our faith. A side note, Peter was the only one to get out of the boat. He was willing to risk his life for Jesus. Even though his faith failed, he went at Jesus’s command. How many of you are willing to risk your life because of the word of God?
