Practical Prayer – Matthew 14:28

By Michael Henry Jr.

The passage for today is Matthew 14:28. It says, “Lord, if it is you, Peter answered him, command me to come to you on the water.”

In this passage, Peter is asking Jesus to command him to come to Him on the water. This is a prayer, even though it doesn’t look like one at first glance.

Prayer is simply talking to God. It can be formal or informal, long or short. The important thing is that we are communicating with God and seeking His will for our lives.

Peter’s prayer is a good example of how we can pray to God. He is asking Jesus for something specific, but he is also submitting to Jesus’ will. He is saying, “If it is you, command me to come to you on the water.”

We can all learn from Peter’s example. When we pray, we should be specific in our requests, but we should also be willing to submit to God’s will.

We should also pray often. The more we pray, the more we will grow in our relationship with God. And the more we grow in our relationship with God, the more He will use us to make a difference in the world.

Let’s all make a commitment to pray more often. Let’s talk to God about everything, big and small. And let’s be open to His will for our lives.
