THINKING OUT OF THE BOAT LESSONS FROM A PRAYER WATCH FOR DARFUR

A well-known story in the Bible tells about Jesus walking on the water and encouraging his disciple Peter to do the same: "And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear. But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus" (Matt. 14:25-29).

Peter is going along with this amazing new experience, when we read: "But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me" (verse 30).
