Daily Gospel Reading – Matthew 14:22-33

Walking on the Water

22 Then Jesus commanded His disciples to get into the boat and go ahead of Him to the walking-on-waterother side, while He sent the crowds away. 23 When He sent the crowds away, He went up into a mountain by Himself to pray. And when evening came, He was there alone. 24 But the boat was now in the middle of the sea, tossed by the waves, for the wind was turbulent.

25 During the fourth watch of the night Jesus went to them, walking on the sea. 26 But when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, “It is a spirit.” And they cried out in fear.

27 But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Be of good cheer. It is I. Do not be afraid.”

28 Peter answered Him and said, “Lord, if it is You, bid me come to You on the water.”

29 He said, “Come.”

And when Peter got out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus. 30 But when he saw the strong wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink, he cried out, “Lord, save me!”

31 Immediately Jesus reached out His hand and caught him, and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”

32 And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased. 33 Then those who were in the boat came and worshipped Him, saying, “Truly You are the Son of God.”
