21 Days of Prayer & Fasting – Day 8

Day 8

Mark 6:45-50, “Immediately after this, Jesus insisted that his disciples get back into the boat and head across the lake to Bethsaida, while he sent the people home. After telling everyone good-bye, he went up into the hills by himself to pray. Late that night, the disciples were in their boat in the middle of the lake, and Jesus was alone on land. He saw that they were in serious trouble, rowing hard and struggling against the wind and waves. About three o’clock in the morning Jesus came toward them, walking on the water. He intended to go past them, but when they saw him walking on the water, they cried out in terror, thinking he was a ghost. They were all terrified when they saw him. But Jesus spoke to them at once. “Don’t be afraid,” he said. “Take courage! I am here!”

Prayer Focus:

Notice in this account that Jesus never takes His eyes off of His disciples. Though He may not have been with them in the boat in that moment, it did not mean that He wasn’t aware of everything that was going on. Just because we may find ourselves in a storm from time to time, it doesn’t mean that Jesus does not know exactly where you are. Though it may feel like you are on your own in the boat, rest assured in knowing that the Savior has His eyes fixed on you. Pray today for God’s peace and comfort to surround you today. Pray that God with strengthen you to step out on faith; maybe in inviting someone to C3, making the decision to serve on a ministry team or joning a connect group.
