Read Matthew 14:28 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: What did Peter do when he realized it was Jesus walking toward them?
Parent Note: Peter asked to meet Jesus not because he thought it would be cool to walk on water, but because he saw Jesus and wanted to be with him. He didn't do it to show that walking on water wasn't that big of a deal, instead, he did it out of a deep love for Jesus.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear God, thank you for being faithful even when I’m weak.
I know that I can rely on You even when things look impossible.
Help me to be like Peter, who was brave and called out to You when he was afraid.
We ask these things in Jesus' name, Amen.
