This page has some general concepts that you may find useful.

There are also some limited copyright issues, which are towards the bottom of that page here. Please do read them. They are not complex!

Peter walks on the water

On this page you will find a number of downloads that help tell the account of Jesus walking on the water. Peter sees Jesus walking to the boat, and asks Jesus if he, too, can walk on the water!

The account of this in the Bible, can be read in Matthew 14:22-23

 

The teaching that you can perhaps pull from this event is the simple one that when we feel frightened, if we ask Jesus to help us, he will! Not only will He help us, but he will come and be with us (in the boat), and His presence will make a difference.
