Lent day 28


Theme: Afraid


John 6:16-20

That evening, Jesus' disciples went down to the lake. They got into a boat and started across for Capernaum. Later that evening Jesus had still not come to them, and a strong wind was making the water rough.

When the disciples had rowed for three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the water. He kept coming closer to the boat, and they were terrified. But he said, “I am Jesus! Don’t be afraid!”

Reflection prompts

  • What do you fear?
Research shows there is healing when we write, so write down your fears. Let it be a prayer.


God of promise, there is so much that I fear. I am afraid of failing. I am afraid of hurting those I love. I am afraid of relationships falling apart, and of time passing too quickly. I am afraid that I will never reach my dreams, or that I’ll choose the wrong path altogether. I am afraid that the environment will continue to suffer, and that justice for all will never be reached. I have so much fear, and the sea is deep. Please walk toward me. Amen. —Prayer by Rev. Sarah Are | A Sanctified Art LLC |
