 *Opening Hymn "I Know Whom I Have Believed" #714
*Unison Prayer
Lord, it’s you, we need to hear from you
When we are alone
 When we go away to pray
 When we have little faith
 When we are battered by the waves
 When the wind is against us
 When we get in the boat
 When we’re terrified by our ghosts
 When we seek you on the mountain
 When we cry out in fear
 When we start walking on water
 When we begin to sink
 When we are far from land
 Lord, it’s you,
 speak to us,
 calm our fears,
 calm our storms
 Strengthen our resolve
 Remind us who you are
 Walk to us
 Call to us
 Save us
 Reach out your hand and catch us
 Quiet the wind around us
Lord, we worship you for “Truly you are the Son of God.”
