Jesus Walks on the Water

Some friends of Jesus' were  going to cross the water in their boat.

Jesus wanted to join them but he also wanted to talk to some people before he left.

So he told his friends to go ahead without  him.

Jesus stayed behind to visit with more people.

His friends got into their boat and began to cross the water.

His friends rowed the boat for a long time.

They were so tired.

They stopped rowing and sat in their boat to rest.

Were their eyes playing tricks on them?

What did they see?

They saw a man walking on the water!

They didn't know what to think.

"Don't be afraid," Jesus said.


Jesus climbed into the boat with his friends and they crossed the water safely.

Gee, to walk on water!

Have you ever seen anyone walk on water?

Do you think anyone can walk on water?

What would you do if you saw someone walk on water ?

Write and tell me what you think, BUT, ask your parents first.

Let's Pray:
Dear God,
Thank you God for always being there.
Teach me what I can do for others.
Help me always to be thankful for what others can do better than me.
This I ask through Jesus Christ Our Lord.

Can you think of a better prayer?
